Indie Love Songs for the Saps at Heart
1. Saying No to Toxic Past Relationships
“Now you want me back I’m sure, let me show you, here’s the door.” Gold said, “Rekindled relationships usually end for the same reason they did the first time around. Learn from your mistakes, improve yourself, and try again with someone new.” Gold wants her listeners to realize that self-love is more appealing that enduring a toxic relationship.
2. Leaving a Lover behind
“I love you/Standing all alone in a black coat!” Coconut Records paints a vivid picture of the dreary and love-sick isolation which drives his desire to return “home to the West Coast.”
3. An Expression of Enduring Young Love
“Turn a lifestyle into a paradise/Living on the beach and eating fish everyday/Sipping from the fruit from the juice that she made!” You don’t actually need to live on the beach to appreciate eating fish everyday. Lifestyle is what you make it.
4. Communicating Feelings of Lost Love
“Have I found you?/Flightless bird, brown hair bleeding/Or lost you?/American mouth/Big bill, stuck going down.” This soft sounding tune is about the melancholy experienced as a result of wasted potential and a lost love.
