"Thrown Right at Me" as written by and Kristian Matsson....
Jump 'long the creekside
The rock's crooked line
Fun girls, you'll hear it
The days open wide

And horses trot faster 'til sparrows fall down
But you just fall, laughin', to the snow on the ground
You grew up by playin' the valley so wild
And that's why
You're so beautiful now

And, dancin' your bike to the lonesome, young mare
You call up her owner; say your heart will be there
You'll build a collection of scars on your knees
To learn how to count the impossible trees
You grew up by climbin' the birches so high
And that's why
You're so beautiful now

And we live so close that we probably seen
The same bird, the same time
They solumnly scream
One day, I'll find just that friend who can see
All this weird beauty
Thrown right at me

Growin' by playin' the valley so wild
And that's why
You're so beautiful now

    General CommentI'm a fan of his music, but this song is clearly on another level than his other work. I hope his next album will live up to this standard.

    My InterpretationDoes he have a child? A daughter, specifically? It sounds like a love song, but not the old overused love song. To me it's very paternal. Lots of references to childhood and growing up, i.e. "scars on your knees," something I would associate with childhood, running around falling over. Maybe it's fraternal, does he have a sister?
    And I feel like he's also making references to Sweden, and wherever he/the object of the song grew up.

    Either way, this is probably my favorite song by him. It's gorgeous.

    My InterpretationI discovered this guy today and wanted to know a bit about him. He comes from Dalarna in Sweden, and so does his wife. After seing them perform this song together, I think it's quite obvious it's about them. Especially this part:
    "And we live so close that we probably seen
    The same bird, the same time
    They solumnly scream"

    Seems like he's singing about his love for the place he comes from and that she comes from the same wonderful place.

    Absolutely beautiful song
