Björn Ulvaeus has denied that the song is about his and Agnetha's divorce, instead saying it's about divorce in general and the emotions that come with it.

He said: "It is the experience of a divorce, but it's fiction. There wasn't a winner or a loser in our case. A lot of people think it's straight out of reality, but it's not."
