"For What It's Worth" as written by Peter Anders Svensson and Nina Persson....
One, two, three, four

Hey baby come round
Keep holding me down
And I'll be keeping you up tonight.

The four letter word got stuck in my head
The dirtiest word that I've ever said
It's making me feel alright.

For what it's worth I love you
And what is worse I really do
Oh what is worse I'm gonna run run run
'Till the sweetness gets to you
And what is worse I love you!

Hey please baby come back
There'll be no more loving attack
And I'll be keeping it cool tonight.

The four letter word is out of my head
Come on around get back in my bed
Keep making me feel alright.

For what it's worth I like you
And what is worse I really do
Things have been worse
And we had fun fun fun
'Till I said I love you
And what is worse I really do!

For what it's worth I love you
And what is worse I really do.

For what it's worth I love you
And what is worse I really do.

For what it's worth I love you
And what is worse I really do.

    General CommentIts about destroying the perfect fuck-buddy silent/non-silent agreement. It was all good but then she got the feelings and now it means too much and the perfection is over.

    Nicely liberating feeling for her to be true to her feelings mixed with the sadness for what is no more and a slight fear for the uneven bargaining that is to come of this truth.

    MemorySuch a sad song...

    I was in love with a guy for years. We were hanging out all the time,we had common friends,we had great parties,but we were just friends.
    After 2 years one night we were totally drunk,laying on the bed and I said something to him about my feelings. He said: ,,I would do anything for you,you're my best friend but no more."

    He is now married with 2 kids. I'm happy for him but I still have feelings and every time I listen to this song that night pops into my head.

    Life just sucks sometimes.

    General CommentOne person feels stronger than the other. The other person is overwhelmed by the words and does not seem to feel as strongly. The person has to hold back their feelings so as not to jeopardize the situation that they want so badly to work out. As good as a situation is, love can not be forced upon someone.

    Do you want someone who doesn't want you?

    Of course you do. Sometimes you want them more because they don't want you. Time to change that thought.

    General CommentHmm.. \"for what it\'s worth\" - maybe she\'s comfortin someone but then she said the four-letter word and it just didnt help the situation. But then it made her feel alright coz maybe she\'s been holdin her feelings back for some time already..

    Yeah, sometimes one wants someone who dont want them. It\'s a big risk tellin \"I love you\" to the one who doesnt love them back though.

    General CommentI love this song. We've all been there...

    There are two people who have a lot of fun, and things get le-sexy, but she is like, oh shit, I love this guy

    The guy is like "woah... what?!"

    She sees him the next day and is like "yeah sorry about that, uh... I don't know what happened, I'm better now though."

    He's like "okay. :3"

    She's like "omg omg omg I love you, and fuck... I mean it too..."

    what a nice song. :3

    General CommentAwesome track. Definitely about the friendship crossing into more serious tones, I agree.

    I hadn't put the sexual side on it though - doesn't need it :)
