"My Favourite Game" as written by Peter Anders Svensson and Nina Persson....
I don't know what you're looking for
You haven't found it baby that's for sure
You rip me up and spread me all around
In the dust of the deed of time

And this is not a case of lust you see
It's not a matter of you versus of me
It's fine the way you want me on your own
But in the end it's always me alone

And I'm losing my favourite game
You're losing your mind again
I'm losing my babay
Losing my favourite game

I only know what I've been working for
Another you so I could love you more
I really thought that I could take you there
But my experiment is not getting us anywhere

I had a vision I could turn you right
A stupid mission and a lethal fight
I should have seen it when my hope was new
My heart is black and my body is blue

And I'm losing my favourite game
You're losing your mind again
I'm losing my favourite game
You're losing your mind again

I'm losing my baby
Losing my favourite game

I'm losing my favourite game (losing my favourite game)
You're losing your mind again (I've tried)
I've tried but you're still the same (I've tried)

I'm losing my baby
You're losing a saviour and a saint

    General CommentYour average relationship. He's a badboy, the first verse tells us the way he treats her. Second verse tells us how she thought that she'd be the one to change him, that she was the one who'd make a decent man of him. Third verse is her acceptance that it hasn't worked, that is was a stupid idea to think that she could stop him being an asshole, and now she's cold. By the end, she stills sees herself as some sort of angel, despite her choosing someone who was obviously bad and admitting that, in the end, it was all just a stupid experiement to make her feel more secure.

    Song MeaningI think the song is about herself. She can't save herself and she gives up. She finally just doesn't give a shit and flies free. However, since she says "him versus me", that might make it totally different. The video (visual affect) is quite moving and understandable

    General CommentI love this song: it has kick ass music you can sing along to. The video was well mad, because it fits perfectly with the moral of the song- a woman trying to save her relationship, then kills herself because she can't.

    General Commentim not totally sure that she kills herself, but i guess all songs are up to different interpretations.

    General CommentWhen I hear the words to this song, I hear a story of a woman who has fallen in love with someone who is mentally unstable, possibly suicidal. It seems as though, to wards the end of the song, her lover has committed suicide. That's just how I interpret the song.
