"No Subtle Men" as written by Anna Alexandra Ternheim and Andreas Dahlback....
It's getting late
I think my time is running out
No one special
Nothing lasting with inside

How should I stay calm
When panic lies just ahead?
Everyone can see my youth
Hanging by a thread

No subtle men
Came to my town
No subtle men
Begging for my hand

I'm one of few who's left
When everyone has gone
The train is leaving
And it's too late to get on

So much for running
When no one stays to wait
For another broken promise
To slip my mind by mistake

Who would take my word
On anything these days?
I felt so many times
Saying I'm gonna change

No subtle men
Came to my town
No subtle men

No lifelong friend
Lives in my town
No subtle men
Begging for my hand

    General CommentThis song makes me feel very sad, I think its about reviewing your live at a certain age. not regretting, but having peace with how your life has been, though you would have wanted it to be different.

    My OpinionYes.

    This song to me is about waiting your whole life to find that perfect person to spend your life with. You see your friends grow up, get married and have children...but you're left behind.


    And now she feels as if time is slipping away for her to have that chance.

    General CommentIt's supposed to be "I've failed so many times, saying I'm gonna change."

    General CommentI think "Nothing lasting within sight" is a more proper ending of the first verse.

    This song speaks to me as well. More and more the older I get and as I don't seem to alter the behaviours that are setting the field for me.
