The song is simple.
Or maybe not quite simple, but given the wide variety of songs that are available in the universe it is kind of simple. It’s a slow build. The kind of song that almost starts quiet, even though it isn’t really, and then it starts to reach a peak. One that even though you’ve heard it countless times is a song that always somehow manages to catch you off guard. It somehow still manages to reveal new things to you.
It evokes memories as well.
Mostly good ones.
Sitting on walls in Paris. Random ‘photoshoots’ with sombreros. Shit talking conversations in the early hours of the morning in the only way that is possible at that time. Watching several different videos of the same song and it never really sounding any different but yet always sounding like something new.
It’s hearing the first three seconds and instantly being transported to a somewhat more emotional place. It’s hearing that one lyric that is embedded among so many others but that one being the only one that you seem to hear sometimes. It’s wanting to avoid ever listening to it unless it can be avoided and yet also wanting to just bask in the glory at any moment possible. It’s both loving and hating it and being in a constant state of confusion about how both can be true. It’s also somehow wishing the song had never entered your life but also not knowing what things would be like if it weren’t there.
It’s sort of your everything and you somehow have no idea how that came to be.
It’s knowing that it has left you changed for good.
