Penguin Lyrics

Play "Penguin"
on Amazon Music

Can you find the time
To let your lover love you?
He only wants to show you
The things he wants to learn too
The hardest parts you'll get through
And in the end you'll have your best friend

Love like this may come once
Baby it's...

    For me it's as if Christina in the beginning is talking to the listeners of the songs or as if she is talking in third person. Trying to get them to notice their "penguin". At the end she is reflecting on herself (first person), talking and recognizing her own penguin. When she says "Let go of time for you and I" I thought she wanted her penguin not to focus on the time but live within the moment with her.

    I think the song is about someone who is telling a best friend (or someone else she cares about) that the guy sheare with is perfect for her, and if dating/marrying him means that the friend needs to be seperate from her best friend, its ok to "let go of time for you and I" so she can be with the person who is perfect for her. In the end she is saying that she would want the same thing ("love like this, is all I want").

    I think the very first part of her song is her telling a friend that the friend's guy is very innocent and anything he's doing he wants HER to see and gets excited like a little kid to show HER things he has discovered. And when you find this person, he's the right guy for you and she needs to see that. The rest of her song is telling you once you find this special "penguin" or forever lover you need to hang on to him and to be greatfull you found him and make time for him, not get lost in the busyness of life.

    At the beginning, I think she is telling someone she cares about, like her best friend (hint hint), that their lover cares about them, but her friend is not looking at the love. But towards the end, Christina falls in love with another person and she wants to be loved like how her friend's lover treats her friend. The Penguin part really means a Love Forever. The "Let Go" part confuses me a bit. But that's how I see it.

    She said her nickname for her boyfriend is "Penguin" ..so she wrote this about him. He is her soulmate, mated for life, like penguins.

    maybe shes trying to say to a friend or family member, "hey this person your with, they're right for you, and you can let me go and start your life with them if that will make you happy." just my interpretation. :)

    she says "Like a soulmate, he's your penguin" She says this because penguins ares soulmates...meaning penguins mate for life.They have the same mate forever.
