Day 1: Square One

I thought it would be okay to start off my music review challenge with this marvelous song by Parachute called Square One. Just because a song is about love, does not make it any less acceptable in society.  We connect with the music that relates to us in one form of another. The messages a song gives can have a variety of hidden meanings, its just up to the listeners interpretation of what it means to them.

Here is the video with lyrics.

I’m a white flag waving
When there’s no fight left to win
In the desert waiting
For the tide to bring me in

When love goes,
nobody wants to say it did.
I realize, baby, there’s no

No square one,
Just the lines in the sand.
No morning,
Just the sun going down.
From now on,
I’m just a face in the crowd
You’re never gonna see again
We’re never gonna get back baby

We were fading-
Trying to light a flame that we put out
We were landing
A plane that never left the ground
We were looking for a sign
That this ship was going down
while we were treading water, baby

No square one,
Just the lines in the sand.
No morning,
Just the sun going down.
From now on,
I’m just a face in the crowd.
You’re never gonna see again
We’re never gonna get back baby

No square one,
Just a shape in the clouds
No memories,
Just a picture you found
From now on,
I’m just a face in the crowd
You’re never gonna see again
We’re never gonna get back baby

I need your love
Oh, I need your love
But I can’t give this up
Yeah, cuz I need your love
Oh, I need your love.

No square one,
Just the lines in the sand.
No morning,
Just the sun going down.
From now on,
I’m just a face in the crowd.
You’re never gonna see it again
We’re never gonna get back, baby.

 

 

 

This song is simply a relationship song (who would have guessed?)

Square one means starting over, like acquainting someone for the first time, and in this song the person is saying there is “no square one’ he is done with the relationship and is now just another face in the crowd. There is constant fighting in the current relationship he happens to be in, and although he believes he is done with this person, there is always something that pulls him back into wanting them, thinking it will work this time, but again fails. Sometimes relationships are broken beyond repair, at the end of the song he finally accepts that and begins to move forward.
