"Starter" as written by Peter Anders Svensson and Nina Persson....
This is a start
That I know I'll believe in
So I'm leavin' everything behind
Keeping the parts

That I know I'll be needing
And I breed to be a better kind
And I'm leavin' everyone behind
This is the age

When my past should be gone
But it's just stronger than the aims I have Turning the pages
I used to hang on to
I was young and I have changed my mind

And I'm leaving everything behind
New beginning again
A bit closer
New beginning again

A little bit closer
New beginning again
A bit closer to the end
This is the time

It's a delicate line
To the beginning of what's yet to come
Lifetimes of changes
A strange generation

Explanations never come in time
So I'm leavin' everything behind

    General CommentIt seems a song about someone who is reaching the maturity after going through a very turbulent time while she simply didn't get enough support for standing it ("Lifetimes of changes / A strange generation / Explanations never come in time"). I assume she's subtly making also a criticism upon the lack of dialogue between sons & parents nowadays and this can be one of the main reasons why these same sons (and daughters) have walked by harder ways many times. Anyway, she seems to be prepared to leave all those bad events behind now, despite she recognizes how strong those memories are still on her mind ("This is the age / When my past should be gone / But it's just stronger than the aims I have"). And, as it's never easy to start life from the scratch, she will do it on slow steps' until she feels herself strong enough to make this change on her life in an absolute way ("New beginning again / A bit closer / New beginning again / A little bit closer / New beginning again / A bit closer to the end"), since she definitely doesn't want to leave any chance for her past to come back at this time. Besides, she decides to start this new 'journey' far away from everyone she knew until today. A new place for living, new people for knowing and, as a result of that, new chances to be a better kind, as she said herself. Therefore now she really is a starter!

    General Commentthe way the song starts is excellent, they could have taken it to a great place, but it just gets subdued by these generic beats and melodies in the middle. it gets stuck in my h ead none the less
