"Feathers and Down" as written by Peter Anders Svensson and Nina Persson....
So you trying to do what they did
Your friends that turn to liquid
And got lost in the see
And now you're drowning me
With your talk of full eat clovers
You turn to rocks and no man
To be the ambient harm
But it's bruising your karma

Oh I wish my arms were wider
I wish that I could hide you
So you can rest and repair
Without the blanket of sorrow
The thick and the grey
Your blanket of wool
So heavy and stain
And it only weighs you down

So you thought that getting sober
Would mean your life was over
I don't think it's that bad
I don't think it's that sad
Just you sleep a little baby
Leave the world alone and later
If you wake up alive
That old blanket of sorrow
Could be feathers and down
Your blanket of wool
Would leave you alone
And I can love you till you drown

Come to me let's drown
Come baby let's drown
In feathers and down

    General CommentNow you're drowning me

    with your talk of 4-leaf clovers
    you turn to rocks and omen
    to beat the ambient harm
    that is bruising your karma

    It means that the guy is talking too much about luck and good fortune, he is turning to charms and good luck objects to fix his bad karma and everything that does him harm.

    The idea is that he is blaming other things for his own mistakes, and this is drowning her, making her hopeless because he doesn't' see that its his doing that is making bad things happen to him

    My Interpretationso you're tryin' to do what they did
    your friends that turned to liquid
    and got lost in a sea
    now you're drowning me

    I think something bad happend to the singer's man, something that also affected his friends, and that his trying to drown his sorrow in alcohol, because that what he thinks pepole do. The singer feel helpless and his saddnes is starting to affect her, too.

    with your talk of 4-leaf clovers
    you turn to rocks and omen
    to beat the ambient harm
    that is bruising your karma

    I think he believes that luck is what going to save him from himself, that he don't realize that his the only one who can do that. He's looking for God help and forgets that he needs to way he deals with his pain.

    oh I wish my arms were wider
    I wish that I could hide you
    so you could rest and repair

    without the blanket of sorrow
    the thick and the grey
    your blanket of woe
    is so heavy and stained

    She don't know what to do - she knows that hiding him, that sheltering him, will only harm him, but she can't help it but wanting to do so.

    and it only weighs you down

    so you thought that getting sober
    would mean your life was over
    I don't think it's that bad
    I don't think it's that sad

    It sound to me as if she's starting to get angry - She's tired of waiting for him and of his drama.

    just you sleep a little, baby
    leave the world alone and later
    if you wake up alive

    that old blanket of sorrow
    could be feathers and down
    your blanket of woe
    would leave you alone

    and I could love you 'til you drown...

    come to me, let's drown

    But still, she loves him and care about him, and she can't let him go, despite his actions. She can't live without him, so she's letting him drag her down with him, though she knows it's the bad desicon.

    Lyric CorrectionSo you trying to do what they did
    Your friends that turned to liquid
    And got lost in the sea
    And now you’re drowning me

    With your talk of four-leaf clovers
    You turn to rocks and omen
    To beat the ambient harm
    But it’s bruising your karma

    Oh, I wish my arms were wider
    I wish that I could hide you
    So you can rest and repair
    Without the blanket of sorrow

    The thick and the grey
    Your blanket of woe
    So heavy and stained
    And it only weighs you down, oh

    So you thought that getting sober
    Would mean your life was over
    I don’t think it’s that bad
    I don’t think it’s that sad

    Just you sleep a little baby
    Leave the world alone and later
    If you wake up alive
    That old blanket of sorrow

    Could be feathers and down
    Your blanket of woe
    Would leave you alone
    And I can love you 'til you drown

    Come to me let’s drown, oh
    Come baby let’s drown
    In feathers and down
