To be completely honest, at first I thought this was Rita Ora doing a cover of Elton John’s infamous ‘Your Song’. And this is the first time I’ve been perfectly content to be wrong when it goes to Sir Elton John.
First off, I’ve only recently discovered Rita Ora and to say i’m obsessed would be a disservice to her talent. She’s from the old country (England) and her songs are just uplifting enough to make you want to dance but they often also are a straight shot to the feels as well. And this song isn’t any different.
It’s basically a song about the honeymoon phase in a relationship. YOu know what I’m talking about, those butterflies in your stomach that won’t stop dancing in your abdomen and that awful waiting time for them to text you back. But she does this in a way where you really capture that excitement only known in the beginning stages of a relationship. For me, at least, this song gets me good.
It perfectly describes the girl that isn’t used to falling in love but does. And it’s new and it’s uncomfortable and it’s weird, but damn, does it feel amazing. This song is me starting off my relationship with my current boyfriend. #blessed #seenoevilmonkeyemoji.
If you haven’t gotten a chance to hear this song, check it out on Youtube. I promise it’ll make you believe in love again as well as want to hit the dance floor with that person who’s caught your eye recently.
Favourite lyric: I think I’m falling/I’m not proud/But I’m usually the type of girl that would hit and run.
