Where do I begin, though?
The understated way it opens, like David’s just chatting with you about how it’s goin’?
The way he hits you with killer lines like “When I look at you I wanna see forever”? I mean, COME ON!!
Or when the beat picks up and this delicious groove slides under your skin and starts your shoulders shimmying…
And before you know it, you’re gliding around the living room, arms swaying in the air like a wheat field… like hypothetically, I mean….
And that voice…
Or when the chorus kicks in… “imma need some therapy” and you realize he’s so smitten with this person (yes, I did just use the word “smitten”) that he doesn’t want to ruin it all again, that he’s willing to get the help he needs to try and make it work this time because that is how much he cares.
CUE FLOODS OF TEARS!!!!!!
And that voice…
And through it all there’s this super cool vibe and infectious percussion — and rhythm is a dancer (to quote legendary ’90s Eurodancers Snap!) — so you must DAAAAANCE!!!!
And then my favourite part:
I guess I always build fences around me
But I want to build a gate and let you in
So we can lay on the grass and be happy
It’s a beautiful life
CUE MORE FLOODS OF TEARS!!!!
Then the layers of grooviness continue to build until there’s only one inevitable thing to do:
INSTRUMENTAL WITH DREAMY VOCALIZATION DANCE BREAK!!!
Did I mention that voice?
And then it’s all over even though it feels like it just started and without realizing you’ve done it, you must have it the replay button so it never really does have to be over.
This time I don’t want to break break… up
Um, I clearly need some therapy. 😳
How about you guys??? Thoughts?! Ramblings?!
