Spotlight (Oh Nostalgia) Lyrics

Every word's a new regret if you say it right, right
Every wound can be forgotten in the right light
Oh nostalgia, I don't need you anymore
'Cause the salad days are over and the meat is at my door

They might try to tell you how you can...

    Its about his formative years('salad days') and struggles and how he is currently embracing the fact that he is getting older('the meat is at my door') and how he has stepped out of a (falloutboy)shadow and is now free to be his own spotlight and experiment with any musical feel or genre. He also encourages who ever listens to this song to apply this it their life. Freedom, I guess. To be who you are. And although it's simplistically written it carries a deep message. One that is not all that simplistic to follow. We can also speculate and geuss the 'perfect stranger' might be on of his influences(maybe Prince) whom he does not personally know but admires greatly and how he hopes his kids(songs/music) will be as extraordinary as he believes theirs to be. Excellent song. Excellent album. This guy is music. 100%. <3
