Abba – Waterloo, Lyric Meaning

Waterloo, Abba Song Meaning
One opinion is as follows:
The song is about a woman who is suddenly pursued by a person that she didn’t want to give in to, whether because she wasn’t looking for a relationship, didn’t like him, or whatever.
She struggles to resist (Like a battle in a war) and get away from him, but in the end, gives in and “loses”, (“…I tried to hold you back but you were stronger”) proclaiming her “Waterloo”, just like Napoleon finally lost at Waterloo.
As well as admitting her defeat, she also proclaims her loyalty and love for the guy, who earned it by “winning” the war (“…I was defeated, you won the war… Promise to love you for ever more”)
