"Choke" as written by Peter Anders Svensson and Magnus Sveningsson....
A common line
I closed my eyes
But couldn't let it go
The perfect time

I dropped my guard
And lost but won somehow
It's rather sad
It feels like we've never

Made it together since
One word ahead
And you'd be dead
I held you in my throat

I stumble by
Attached to you
I couldn't let it go
It's rather sad

It's really sad
It feels like we've never
Made it together since
We'll never have the guts to discover

We'll choke on it and die

    General CommentJust like alot of their songs, it is another heartbreak story. about how she is in denial yet at the same time feels like their whole relationship never happened. i think it has a few subtle lines that say there might have been alot of potential. (at least that is how i interpet that last stanza)

    General CommentAlthough this is a sad song it's almost impossible to feel like that.

    This is a masterpiece, maybe this song defines the difference between someone who listen to junk pop music and THE CARDIGANS kind of music. If you can listen to this song and like it, you are very special to me. :)

    This gives me chills, it has an unique rhythm and I can now understand what some musicians says the voice is an instrument... That last part... This is Nina using his voice as a BEAUTIFUL AWESOME instrument.
