Lead singer Gwen Stefani wrote this. It seems to be about relationships that never move forward. People try to make things work with the magic they had in the beginning, but don't realize that you learn so much more about people's habits that you don't see at first. People evolve and change, even if you don't think you are, and your partner has to be willing to accept that and change with you or risk losing you. Often, people go into an unhealthy pattern of stuffing problems under the rug for the sake of staying together, and it only works for so long before those problems sneak up on you and attack. It'll just keep coming back or "rewinding." Suspension without suspense means hanging around even though you know the outcome.
