From Eden Lyrics
Something so magic about you
Don't you agree?
Babe there's something lonesome about you
Something so wholesome about you
Get closer to me
No tired sighs, no rolling eyes, no irony
No "who cares", no...
anonymous Mar 28th 2020 report
So the protagonist meets a woman who comes to know that her lover had been cheating on her and our protagonist understands what she was going through because he was going through the same thing., so our man thinks that what has happened to this women is "tragic" but he is so filled with admiration for he('magic about you')., the woman is 'lonesome' because for obvious reason but our man feels very 'wholesome' when he is with her.
now comes the pre-chorus, so whenever our man tries to suggest his feelings for her., she just brushes it away., "no tired sighs, no rolling eyes, no time for me".., in the chorus our man says that he is familiar of all the things she is going through because he is going through the same., but he just don't care about his pain anymore as he sees this woman completely change in front of his eyes "idealism sits in prison, chivalry fell on his sword, innocence died screaming, ask me i know, i slithered here from eden just to sit outside your door" so there is no idealism left when you are being cheated upon, and that gentleness and gracefulness is all gone from her., and now that she has gone through this immense pain., she has learnt new things which make her less innocent., but our man who is completely whipped is willing to be with her(pun) even if it means he has to leave happiness 'eden'(originally a place where adam and eve lived but it is also called a place of happiness and joy) and he is ready to wait for her in front of her door until she lets him and sees our man as her lover to be.
In the second para our man knows what he is doing, and he is doing so in his senses, he know it is pathetic 'wretched' to want more but he is still waiting and hoping this woman to see him otherwise even though it is a 'sin'.
this song is a beautiful love song, the intensity of feelings is mind blowing., i love the songs this guy makes, his words leave me speechless all the time.
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway
