Austin Weber - Mamma Mia

Austin Weber - Mamma Mia lyrics

I've been cheated by you since I don't know when
So I made up my mind, it must come to an end

Look at me now, will I ever learn?
I don't know how, but I suddenly lose control
There's a fire inside my soul

Just one look and I can hear a bell ring
One more look and I forget everything, woah-woah

Mamma mia, here I go again
My my, how can I resist you?
Mamma mia, does it show again?
My my, just how much I've missed you
Yeah, I've been brokenhearted
Blue since the day we parted
Why, why did I ever let you go?

Mamma mia, now I really know
Why I could never let you go

I've been angry and sad about things that you do
So I made up my mind to tell you that we're through

But when you go, when you slam the door
I think you know that I won't be away too long
You know I'm not that strong

Just one look and I can hear a bell ring
One more look and I forget everything, woah-woah

Mamma mia, here I go again
My my, how can I resist you?
Mamma mia, does it show again?
My my, just how much I've missed you
Yeah, I've been brokenhearted
Blue since the day we parted
Why, why did I ever let you go?

Mamma mia, even when I say
Bye bye, take me now or never
Mamma mia, it's a game we play
Goodbye doesn't mean forever
Yeah, I've been brokenhearted
Blue since the day we parted
Why, why did I ever let you go?

Mamma mia, now I really know
Why I could never let you go
