"Couldn't Care Less" as written by Peter Anders Svensson and Nina Persson....
Oh my heart can't carry much more
It's really, really aching and soar
My heart don't care anymore
I really can't bear more
My hands don't work like before
I shiver and I scrape at your door
My heart can't carry much more

But you couldn't care less
Could you
Your face don't look like before
It's really not like yours anymore
Your eyes don't like me no more
They quiver and they shift to the floor
My heart don't beat like before
It's never been this lone
No my blood don't flow anymore

And you couldn't care less
Could you
Could we stop and sleep for a spare
We can turn this stitch into a ware
And send that old devil back to hell
But we don't care do we

Baby let's stop and sleep for a spare
We can turn this stitch into a ware
And send that old devil back to hell
Your back's not straight like before
You really shouldn't care in me no more
I'm much too heavy for you
I'm really quite a mess, yes
We just don't care anymore
We're cricket and were cut to the core
We're just not there anymore
But we really don't care do we
No, we couldn't care less
We couldn't care less
Could we?

    General CommentIt is the deception of time. They feel numb to eachother now and take eachother for granted. Although she says she doesnt care anymore, she does. The could we shows she doesnt want to give up even though maybe they should.

    General CommentAs the relationship matured, the feeling of being "in love" faded. One of them gave up hope and doesn't want to work at developing a "real love." The other wants to move forward and put forth the effort to make this a positive thing.

    Both partners need to work at this in order for it to work.

    General Commentvery sad song - describes perfectly the feelings of a love which is dying and no one wants to keep the relation alive, because every side denies to make the first step out of the crisis. bitter end.......

    General CommentI love the atmosphere in this song.
    I think it's the best song on the "Long gone before daylight" album.

    General CommentSorry 'cause my English is bad...
    One thing I've noticed about Cardigans is that the mood of the songwriter has been changing during the period from "Emmerdale" where everything seems so light and happy, ...but "Long Gone Before Daylight" has some of the saddest songs I've ever heard. The best example is this song...

    I think it's about flashback...
    It seems like she touched the bottom and she is full of regrets... I think it's all about regretting...
    Now he is over and done with her, but she still loves him.
    And after all that she's been trough she is desperate and nothing has sense anymore.

    Oh, gosh, when I've heard this song I cried...
    Very sad and powerful...

    General CommentIn my opinion, it's the best song on the album.

    It's raw and emotional.

    Song MeaningI've been wondering about this one. It's extremely sad and obviously the protagonist still deeply loves the other, but it seems that the other doesn't have the energy to keep going with the relationship. The lyric "you really shouldn't carry me no more
    i'm much too heavy for you
    i'm really quite a mess" , maybe implies that the relationship is unbalanced and that she has some heavy problems mentally, and leans a lot on the other.
