A conversation my BFF and I had about this song:
Me: “I think this song is about a woman.”
E: “This song is def about a woman.”
Me: “What makes you say that?”
E: “Because nobody talks about a man like that. You can hear it in the voice…the longing…”
Plus “a white knight’s lover” is either a woman or a gay man. Before anyone gets all upset I’m not saying she’s anything (bi/straight/whatever), I’m simply saying how I interpreted this song. I love it regardless, it’s so beautiful and heartfelt.
