"Erase/Rewind" as written by Peter Anders Svensson and Nina Persson....
Hey, what did you hear me say
You know the difference it makes
What did you hear me say

Yes, I said it's fine before
But I don't think so no more
I said it's fine before

I've changed my mind
I take it back
Erase and rewind
'Cause I've been changing my mind
I've changed my mind

So, where did you see me go
It's not the right way, you know
Where did you see me go

No, it's not that I don't know
I just don`t want it to grow
It's not that I don't know

I've changed my mind
I take it back

    General Commenti think it's rather obvious, she started to have a relationship with someone but realized that she didnt wanna be with this person, whether for her sake or his sake, or simply just lack of true interest..

    General CommentI've had this lovely Cardigans song on high rotation for the last few weeks and my take on the meaning is quite different from all the previous posts. Personally I think the key to the song meaning is the line "I just don't want it to grow" I feel Nina is referring to unplanned pregnancy, not love or a relationship. Throughout the whole song the somber overtone feels more unsettling and painful than just a generic love gone bad situation. "Erase and rewind, cause I've been changing my mind", has Nina already terminated her pregnancy and is regretting the decision or perhaps ruing the actual conception.
