"Much Too Long" as written by and Johan Bengtsson Jesper Anderberg....
I don't feel rejected but I feel neglected
you know me too well
but you keep twisting my arm

There was a time when we had everything
you know my weakness
to push me around

We need to talk, nothing to serious
I just can't keep this inside me no more.

So live hated, not much to brag about
but I have always been cool with myself
It takes more than a heartbeat to get me
to stop me I'm out in the cold
It takes more than a heartbeat to get me
You've been holding on for much too long

I got a call, nothing too serious
Don't even know you but we're keeping in touch
So I've been jealous, not much to brag about
But I've always been true to myself
It takes more than a heartbeat to get me
to stop me I'm out in the cold
It takes more than a heartbeat to get me
you've been holding on for much too long now

I don't feel rejected but I feel neglected
you know me too well
but you keep twisting my arm

There was a time when we had everything
you know my weakness
to push me around

So live hated, not much to brag about
but I have always been cool with myself
It takes more than a heartbeat to get me
to stop me I'm out in the cold
It takes more than a heartbeat to get me
You've been holding on for much too long now...much too long now...much too long now
It takes more than a heartbeat to get me

You've been holding on
For much too long
Now

    General Commentnow maybe i'm just jaded by my own personal situation but to me this song is about a girl who was with a guy. things were great and they had it all but for whatever reason they're no longer together. she's trying to get over it but he knows exactly what to say and/or do to make her weak. but she finally realizes it's not worth it anymore. he's not worth it. so she's singing about how yeah people hate her, yeah she's been jealous of others. who cares because no one else matters, she's got to be strong on her own, without him, and move on.

    i'm probably completely wrong on this. but that's what i always think of when listening to this song.

    General Commenti completely agree with pain.
    she's been pushed around, and she's finally sticking up for herself.

    i love the line "it takes more than a heartbeat to get me"
    because i always took it as she doesn't take just anyone who's alive, you need more.
    at least thats how i saw it.

    General CommentMy first thought whe she said "It takes more than a heart beat to get me" was that she meant people need to have more in commen than just being alive.

    I realy like this song :)
