"Swimming Upstream" as written by and Ticotin Calleja....
The sun disapeared right before my eyes
My heart turned and walked away
I gave you
The keys to an open door and you threw them right back at me

Once again I'm alone with a pain in my chest so sad so sad so long
And the clouds start to gather here comes
The rain
You meant more then you can know

I can't say I miss you your always around
I can't say I love you cause you cut me down
I'm wounded and hurt and that's my fault
But I made my decision with my back to the wall

And I gotta move on from here
I've done all that I can do
Yeah I gotta move on from here
I've been swimming upstream for you

A storm passes by I can't explain
It's hard to be next to you
Is it my face or is it everything
That your not attracted to

I'm so lost and confused when I look at you
Your rise your lips so soft
And then when you see me I turn away
'Cause I know that I turn you off

I can't say I miss you your always around
I can't say I love you cause you cut me down
I'm wounded and hurt and that's my fault
But I made my decision with my back to the wall

And I gotta move on from here
I've done all that I can do
Yeah I gotta move on from here
I've been swimming upstream for you

I've been swimming upstream for you
I've been swimming upstream for you

    General CommentDamn. This song hurts. The song is describing how he views someone he loves. He looks at them, has been fighting to get them, and they still hurt him.

    'I can't say I miss you, you're always around
    I can't say I love you cause you've cut me down
    I'm wounded and hurt and that's my fault
    But I made my decision with my back to the wall

    And I gotta move on from here
    I've done all that I can do
    Yeah I gotta move on from here
    I've been swimming upstream for you'

    This song is one of the saddest songs I've ever heard. Not as strong of a finnish as on their last album, but an excellent song. One of their best
