"Rewind" as written by and Paolo Giovanni/duguid Nutini....
Picking up the pieces of the wreck you went and left
And I'm dealing with dilemmas in my now so stressful life.
I'm drinking stronger spirits, made my home here on the floor,
And I'm losing all ambition and goals
I'm going all out, I'm thinking you're just as bad.

[Chorus]
I'm not sleeping at night, but I'm going from bar to bar.
Why can't I just rewind, why can't we just rewind, why can't we just rewind?

Remember at 16 the crazy drunken night we had,
When I kissed you in the hallway, then I took you straight to bed.
Two years on I'm still the same boy, and

[Chorus: x2]

You might blame it on me, but you insisted that we fall.
Wiped your hands of me and said you needed more, more, more!

[Chorus: x2]

Why can't we just rewind?

    General CommentThis song is absolutely incredible. It's pretty self-explanitory but I think the way he goes about describing his situation is just beautiful. He's getting drunk, self-pitying, hardly sleeping, and wandering the streets. It all paints a vivid picture of a very sad person, who is remembering past times...and all he wants is the person that he once loved back. This song seems so personal, and I love it.

    General CommentFantastic song. Reminds me of this guy who I had "a crazy drunken night" with. Then a week later he let me down.

    General CommentI can't wait to see him in concert next week. He is amazingly talented and so handsome.

    This song is incredible. He has said in interviews this song is about a girlfriend he had in high school who he dated for years and years but they ended up breaking up. As with Last Request it was about being together again... more physical than emotional but healing.

    It can also relate to the here and now of someone who may be with a partner and feel the same way.
