"Swimming" as written by Hakan Wirenstrand, Erik Oskar Bodin, Fredrik Daniel Wallin and Yukimi Eleanora Nagano....
Used to know a boy, he was so shy
Never knew his thoughts, he never knew mine
My troubles disappeared whenever he came close
Was walking on air, my feelings exposed

Ooh, ooh, my life would be a different game
Ooh, ooh, lucky never we became
Ooh, ooh, and now so many years have past
Ooh, ooh, my memory's as clear as glass

I used to be the girl who never had a plan
Was only daydreaming of only one man
Smoking in my room crying over you
Walking on air into the blue

Ooh, ooh, my life would be a different game
Ooh, ooh, so lucky never we became
Ooh, ooh, and now so many years have past
Ooh, ooh, my memory's as clear as glass

    My InterpretationI think it's pretty obvious man.

    "Used to know a boy
    He was so shy
    Never knew his thoughts
    He never knew mine"

    in this verse shes just basically describing a shy boy, and as the lyrics progress, we can see she is in love with him.

    "My troubles disappeared
    whenever he came close
    Was walking on air
    My feelings exposed"


    Whenever he is near, her troubles "disappear". Probably because she is just focused on him because she admires him so much. She forgets about all he problems and troubles and
    concentrates on her man! "When she says walking on air, my feelings exposed", she is basically telling you she feels like she is floating because she is so in love and happy. "My feelings exposed", pretty obvious. She's completely showing this person who she is because she loves him and wants him to TRULY know her.

    "oo oo
    My life would be a different game
    oo oo
    How lucky never we became
    oo oo
    And not so many years have passed
    oo oo
    My memory's as clear as glass"

    This part is a bit less clear then the prior lyrics, but I think when she says. "how lucky never we became" she is telling us that nothing ever really came of it, maybe because he was just too shy. which also leads me to suspect that he is also a very insecure person because she also says, "He never knew his thoughts".

    "My life would be a different game" - I think she is saying her life would had been different if she stayed with this guy.

    "not so many years have passed, my memory's as clear as glass" pretty obvious. shes recalling this man, though she may think he is a weak, unconfident, insecure little bitch, she still was madly in love with him and doesn't hate him.

    "I used to be the girl
    who never had a plan
    Was only daydreaming
    of only one man"

    In the above lyric, I think she is describing her opinion on herself when she was younger and pursuing this man. She thinks she was a naive, dumb girl because she was so obsessed with this one man.

    "Smoking in the room
    Crying over you
    Walking on air
    into the blue"

    In this lyric, either he dumped her, or maybe she dumped him because she felt he wasn't right for her even though he loved him and they had history. Of course she would cry, anyone would. The "smoking in the room" lyric could be a reference to smoking weed or some drug to relieve some pain, which is why she says shes "walking on air, into the blue". The sky is blue and it's also high. it is the sky! And when you smoke, you get high!

    I don't know.. just what I think. Thanks for reading my novel. :)
