So first and foremost Good Afternoon, as I am starting to write and consider the real messages and exploration that this song has to offer I find myself day dreaming of the multiple directions and possibilities that I could take this. I chose to highlight the verse above because it speaks to the core concepts of the song. A man and a woman’s mans in determine solidarity. The us vs the world proclamation.
I enjoy the song because it represents a common story boy meets girl, girl and boy get along and then each starts to have doubts about the other in time of absences. I have to say that this is one of my favorite songs. It depicts a really vivid journey and appeals to all my senses. Take for instances,
That snake could be that chick and that rat could be that cool cat
That’s whispering she trying to play you for the fool Black
If something’s on your chest then let it be known
See I’m not at you every five minutes all on the phone
And on the topic of trust, it’s just a matter of fact
That people bite back and fracture what’s intact
And they’ll forever be, I ain’t on some oh I’m a celebrity
I deal with the real, so if it’s artificial let it be
I’ve seen people caught in love like whirlwinds
Listening to they squads and listening to girlfriends
That’s exactly the point where their whole world ends
Lies come in, that’s where that drama begins
And she like
While this verse really speaks about the trust in a relationship it also delivers feelings of certainty and realness. The song presents and evokes emotions of honesty, trustworthiness, authenticity and utter realness. In a world where the media and a great deal of society are concerned with the perception, this presents the raw inner realness that some individuals exude. I hope you enjoy this record as much as I do.
Anyone have any ideas for songs that I should listen to? The you feel would also reflect these notions?
