This song takes me back to the good old days of working retail at Tyrone Square Mall in St. Petersburg during grad school. I remember thinking, “What a beautiful song” while at the folding table.
Did I tell you you’re wonderful?
I miss you / Yes I do
What a pretty little thought. And this was before I knew it was THE Adam Ant of “Goody Two Shoes” fame. When I found that out, it only added to my affinity to the song.
Then I really listened to the words:
Over, real over
When I nearly hit the face I love
So tired of packaging anger
always pushing you away
Gulp. That put a little different light to it.
So now I just think it’s the most beautiful song about threatened domestic abuse I’ve ever heard.
Hope you think so, too.
