I’m not really a fan of metaphoric songs. I prefer to keep it simple and straight: no beating around the bush. But then, this song just hit me. I loved the melody and the vocals: Birdy’s voice. It sounded like a sweet lullaby with underlying despair.
It’s just so hard to read between the lines. Or maybe it’s just me. Maybe I’m just not good at these. And so when I finally declared to the world and to myself that I couldn’t quite get it. I searched the net “skinny love meaning” and then poof I found it. I was happy that I got some things right like the first and second stanza. Thank you. I didn’t know I was quite good. quite
Well, the meaning of the song was really very expanded. It was based on banal happenings of relationships. Yeah. Like naah. But still though, I loved the way it was composed with phrases aggregrated into one awesome metaphor.
Oh btw, I thank my best friend, Krish for linking it on my wall. :) You’re the best!
