Thoughts on Songs with Lykke Li

These lyrics sing to my heart. It's a feeling I had for quite a long period in the past, feeling like a complete stranger in the crowd, wanting to be always left alone, craving for my peace of mind. So for me this is a song about it, about the way one feels after something really hard happens and shakes the earth under their feet.

Really touching lyrics and music, many ways to interpret it in. It could be an insight in this kind of affair that one is dedicated to the other, totally committed to following and supporting him through their life, passively and silently, enjoying on the other hand their part in it, not wanting to let go.
