I have always thought this song was about a woman recounting her typical mind numbing day before she met her soul mate. But having looked at some other interpretations it seems some think the meaning of this song is much darker. For example some think she has now broken up with her lover and is looking back on how her life was and now is again. They point not to the lyrics but the dark foreboding music that seems to suggest anything but a happy present. Thoughts? Anyone that thinks ABBA are all upbeat pop songs should listen to this one.
