"Window Blues" as written by Bj�rn Daniel Arne Yttling, Lykke Li Timotej Zachrisson and Nils-erik Sandberg....
I sleep with windows open
I sleep with eyes wide
In case you would come walk in
In case you change your mind

But don't strain yourself for me
Don't break yourself for me
Don't lose your selfish ways for me

I keep a leash around you
And I keep it nice and tight
In case you would go walking
Over forbidden lines

But don't go all soft on me
Don't come across for me
Don't lose your selfish ways over me

Un, deux, trois
Quatre, cinq, six
A hundred times around
You keep on flunking out
Keep me wanting more

Un, deux, trois
Quatre, cinq, six
A hundred times is fine
For you I go all blind

Oh my, where is my mind?

I keep my window open
I keep it open wide
So keep me keep it open
Oh keep me on your mind

    General CommentI think this song is about just a bad realtionship , when she played this in the glasshouse , she asked "who in here has had a bad boyfriend?" , so to me it's clear . Amazing song as well .

    General Commenti think the first two bracketed words are right: "strain" then "lines".

    and perhaps "a hundred times around" for the stanza in the bridge.

    General CommentI love the first part!

    "I sleep with windows open
    I sleep with eyes wide
    in case you would come walking
    in case you'd change your mind"

    I feel like that all the time.. I always have this tiny hope he will come back..so i stay waiting..

    General CommentIt is a relationship that seems to permit the other person involved in it very much even cheating and selfishness...
