"Down in the Past" as written by Bjorn Hans-erik Dixgard and Gustaf Noren....
Well I don't wanna hang around with you
I've got my motor baby and I'm gonna see you through
Do you think I wanna be alone with you
It doesn't matter baby 'cause you're overreacted too
But since you're down there, where will I just be
I'm getting fine girl, dressing up for stormy weather

So, touch me down in the past where my mother will last
And it's true that I'm in for a punch and a blast
Yeah down in the past where my mother will last
And she will make sure that you remember yeah

Well I don't wanna slide away with you
I've got ten little soldiers pointing at you
Honey you just left me for a new one
It doesn't matter baby 'cause your hair is ugly too
But since you're down there, where will I just be
I'm getting fine girl, dressing up for stormy weather

So, touch me down in the past where my mother will last
And it's true that I'm in for a punch and a blast
Yeah down in the past where my mother will last
And she will make sure that you remember

Well I don't wanna hang around with you
I've got my motor baby and I'm gonna see you through
You think I wanna be alone with you
It doesn't matter baby because you're overreacted too

So, touch me down in the past where my mother will last
And it's true that I'm in for a punch and a blast
Yeah down in the past where my mother will last
And she will make sure that you remember yeah yeah
That you remember, that you remember

Now come on, come on, come on
Come on, come on

    General Commentokay, I know this question was raised LONG ago, but how about this:

    it's about a guy, who has had enough of his present (ex-?)girlfriend, and vows to rely only on his mother in future. so the girl is "down in the past" and his mother "will last". his mother has always been there for him and "she will make sure that you remember" might mean, that his mother is furious about the girl making him sad or angry or unhappy overall.
