"Wrong" as written by and Thorn/watt....
I wanted everything for a little while
Why shouldn't I?
I wanted to know what it was like
But I pushed you too far

I know
And you started laying down the law
'Til I didn't love you any more
Now you can pull a little bit

There's a little give and take
And love will stretch a little bit
But finally it's gonna break

Wherever you go I will follow you,
'Cause I was wrong

Wherever you go I will follow you,
'Cause I was wrong

So there we both were in that little house
Just hanging out
You didn't know what you were about
You turned to me as you were

Threading daisies on a chain
And you said, "It's decision time again"
Now you can pull a little bit
There's a little give and take

And love will stretch a little bit
But finally it's gonna break

Wherever you go I will follow you
'Cause I was wrong.

Wherever you go I will follow you
'Cause I was wrong.

And the ground's gonna swallow you
I was wrong
I was wrong
I was wrong
I was wrong

I wanted everything for a little while.
Why shouldn't I?
I wanted to know what he was like.
Now you can pull a little bit,

There's a little give and take.
And love will stretch a little bit,
But finally it's gonna break.

Wherever you go I will follow you,
'Cause I was wrong

Wherever you go I will follow you,
'Cause I was wrong

Wherever you go I will follow you,
'Cause I was wrong

Wherever you go I will follow you,
'Cause I was wrong

    General CommentI think the lyrics is composed on two layers: verses (past) and chorus (present/future).

    Verses: persona describes feelings towards life and relationships in general. It seems that (s)he wants to experience as much as possible, relationships are just a part of it, they seem quite artificial and can't last long.

    And then (chorus), denies it "I was wrong" because has found... I don't know, someone could call it "true love"

    General CommentI think that it's about a woman who wanted a relationship (or more likely just sex) with a man who was married or in a relationship. Then he changed his mind and something happened between them and now it is going to be on his mind because he will feel guilty about it and she feels that she was wrong for comming onto him in the beginning. She knows that he is going to have a lot of problems in his life because she was wrong.

    General CommentI always thought it's about a narrator who cheated on someone s/he's in a relationship with. I say narrator because it's not necessarily female; Tracey can be found voicing a character who's clearly Ben, e.g. Flipside, Downhill Raceri

    And the song is about the significant other/bf/partner pulling bitter/sour behavior, or emotional bullying of some sort on her - a little give and take, possibly manipulative? comments like "it's decision time again" and so on.

    I didn't get the chorus for the longest time, but I guess it's "I realize I'd still rather be with you more than anyone else" - so, wherever you go I will follow you, cause I was wrong about wanting everything.

    And the ground's gonna swallow me, because I was so wrong about that, such shame!
