Paul Lyrics


Oh, the last time I saw Paul
I was horrible and almost let him in
But I stopped and caught the wall
And my mouth got dry
So all I did was take him for a spin

Yeah, we hopped inside my car
And I drove in circles 'round the freight train...

    This is a cover of “Paul” by Big Thief. I don’t think this is about Paul being toxic. This is about Paul letting his lover in his life despite the loved having some trust issues and personal trauma. Paul said he’d be there for his lover, but he didn’t know what he was getting into. His lover had a lot to work out, and as much as this lover tried to be there for Paul, in the end, the trauma and personal anxiety took over the lover’s perspective of the relationship. The lover knew that they had to leave Paul in order for Paul to have a happy and healthy life. Could be wrong, but from this perspective, Paul is gentle, kind, and wants to be good .

    Maybe Paul was someone he was close to (BOYFRIEND) and Paul became toxic and Robbie was stuck with paul he could not leave him. He could not leave because he still loved paul even if he could have been toxic. Then Robbie finally left paul and know he's telling us about it.

    My boyfriends name is Paul so i hold this song really close cause he fixed me and I'd be all thoae things for him. And i think cavetown meant that he was the toxic one and he wasn't good for paul and paul just kept coming back because he loved him regardless of everything he was x

    I think Paul could’ve been a person in Cavetown’s life that he held close and one day finally let him go. “Paul” could’ve been a toxic person or Cavetown pushed him away. It sounds almost like a tragic breakup that happened in the past. The breakup could’ve been from toxic relationship issues or something like that but I’m not sure if I’m right
