"Losers" as written by Peter Anders Svensson and Nina Persson....
Look at all these losers
You find them everywhere
They're fucked up and annoying
But somehow you seem to care

It's easier to laugh
But something makes you stick around
You can't watch from above
And keep your ten toes in the sand

You wish that you were special
I'm just like you
Close your eyes
That'll be the day you'll find those lies

Fold your ears
That'll be the day that you will hear
That'll be the day you
Get back home

It's lonely to be strange
And you would never tell
That you're one of these itches
You know it much too well

Losers are your weakness
They will always touch your heart
You're touching me as well
'Cause I have always been a part

You wish that you were special
I'm just like you

    General CommentWhoops.. Well, anyway, it seems like it's about not listening to trends and what's popular. The person being spoken to believes to be one of the 'cool' kids, and dislikes the 'losers', even though they secretly care about them. Inside, they yearn to -really- be cool, but they're in denial of the fact that they are not. So the chorus mentions that if they simply close their eyes and don't listen, they would realize the truth and get back to who they really are. It's not important to be 'cool', because in the end they're 'just like you'.

    General Commenti feel its like a highschoolers perspective or something, haha, bexcause its such an immature story and theres like a sort of adolescent isolation to the sopng it seems

    but anyway

    yes so i think she and someone else really like eachother and they talk sometimes and might even be romantic, when noone is watching
    and he tells her deep secrets and feelings and stuff and so she knows that in reality hes a lonely loser just like her
    (and everyone else)
    he keeps it under wraps bacause hes popular so it would ruin his reputation because the girl is a "loser"

    and so the girl is telling him to open his eyes to the fact that being cool or being a loser is an illusion and it isnt important

    sp yes they love eachother and they are the same but they are from different worlds so it doesnt work out so easily
