To me this song is a song about love, Leon Bridges is singing about a relationship he has with a girl. He uses the art of diction to reveal how he feels about this girl. He starts off the song by explaining how he doesn’t want to fall too hard too quick, but it is true. He is falling for her.
Don't wanna get ahead of myselfLater in the song the tone shifts from lust to fear. Bridges start to realize that the feelings he is feeling are strong and they may not end up being reciprocated. This shift reminded me of a Sonnet poem due to the fact that it is about love and starts with a problem and in the end, there is a solution.
Feeling things I've never felt
It's kinda hard for me to explain
Her personality and everything
I'm scared to death that she might be it
That the love is real, that the shoe might fit
She might just be my everything and beyond (beyond)
Space and time in the afterlife
Will she have my kids? Will she be my wife?
She might just be my everything and beyond, yeah
Give this song a listen, it might take a few listens to understand the meaning, but I guarantee you will enjoy!
