"The Girl From Back Then" as written by Eirik Glambek Boe and Erlend Otre Oeye....
And I sat down and said
"I don't want to suffer."
But she told me
She had nothing to offer,
No more.

I sat down and said
"I don't want to suffer."
But she told me
She had nothing to offer,
No more.

Now that I know that
I did not know you then

    General CommentIf this was every proof that reading is new every time..
    Maybe romance is still the answer - but no love comes without suffering, especially not from The Girl From Back Then.

    Song MeaningTo me, this song is about a guy who is remembering the end of a relationship that he had with a girl from back home. (hence the title) The relationship was making him suffer, and she didn't want to put any work into the relationship, so they ended it. He's reflecting back on it (Perhaps he saw the girl when he went back home) and realizes that when they were in the relationship, he didn't really know who the girl was personality wise.

    I love this song. It's really simple, and even sounds like someone reflecting on the past.
