My Latest Obsession

Sometimes, there is a song you hear or perhaps a movie you see, and you can’t get it out of your head.  It took me so long to discover it, I would hear bits and pieces and then change the channel.  One day, I just stopped to listen and now I can’t get enough of this song.  I’m currently in love with The Neighborhood’s “Sweater Weather”.  Seriously, I’m in love.  At this very moment, I’m listening to it on repeat, trying to get it into my top 25 on iTunes.

I know I’m behind the times, this song has been out for awhile as far as I can tell.  I can’t believe I ignored it when it first came out. (I did the same thing with “Wonderwall”, can you believe it?)  If you haven’t heard it, google it and watch the video, I’ll wait…If you’d rather not listen to it, check out the lyrics courtesy of metrolyrics.com:

All I am is a man
I want the world in my hands
I hate the beach
But I stand in California
With my toes in the sand

Use the sleeves of my sweater
Let’s have an adventure
Head in the clouds but my gravity’s centered
Touch my neck and I’ll touch yours
You in those little high waisted shorts, oh

She knows what I think about
And what I think about
One love, two mouths
One love, one house
No shirt, no blouse
Just us, you find out
Nothing that we don’t wanna tell you about, no

‘Cause it’s too cold
For you here right now
So let me hold
Both your hands in the holes of my sweater

And if I may just take your breath away
I don’t mind if it’s not much to say
Sometimes the silence guides our minds to
Move to a place so far away

The goose bumps start to raise
The minute that my left hand meets your waist
And then I watch your face
Put my finger on your tongue
‘Cause you love the taste yeah

These hearts adore
Everyone the other beats hardest for
Inside this place is warm
Outside it starts to pour

Coming down
One love, two mouths
One love, one house
No shirt, no blouse
Just us, you find out
Nothing that I wouldn’t wanna tell you about, no, no, no

‘Cause it’s too cold
For you here right now
So let me hold
Both your hands in the holes of my sweater

‘Cause it’s too cold
For you here and now
So let me hold
Both your hands in the holes of my sweater

Whoa, whoa…

Whoa, whoa, whoa…

Whoa, whoa, whoa…

Whoa, whoa, whoa…

Whoa, whoa, whoa…

Whoa, whoa…

‘Cause it’s too cold
For you here right now
So let me hold
Both your hands in the holes of my sweater

It’s too cold
For you here right now
Let me hold
Both your hands in the holes of my sweater

And it’s too cold,
It’s too cold,
The holes of my sweater…

Now, don’t get me wrong, I love the background music of this song, but what really gets me, are the lyrics.  If you browse about this song, a lot of people believe this song is about weed. It could totally be about weed, I didn’t write it, I don’t know exactly what it’s about.  But I choose to interpret this song as a tale of falling in love.  Sigh…I’m a hopeless romantic.

Every time I hear this song, I imagine some beautiful beginning for some couple. The lyrics make me melt, they drive me crazy, they make me cry.  The lyrics strike a chord with me.  As I’ve said, I know nothing about the lyrics, I can’t take credit for them.  I know even less about falling in love.  However, I imagine that falling in love must be like this song.

I like to think it’s about becoming close with a person, getting to know someone so well that you can sense what they are thinking.  I think it’s about intense, intimate, powerful sex, (I’ve never been there, either).  I think it’s about realizing that you could see yourself committing to this person for life.  I think it’s about giving in to your feelings.  It makes me hopeful that I will fall in love someday.  Give it a listen, let me know what you think.
