Dear internet person,
please enjoy this dedication to
When you are 29 years old in 2021 and finally understand the lyrics :(
i no longer ask "why do humans need nails?"
"This song reminds me of my high-school girlfriend"
- Liam Johnstone, 2021, on Dido's "White Flag"
Lyrically, it’s about being unwilling to let go of a past relationship and refusing to give up on love...it features a multi-layered instrumental with chill beats, delicate piano and strings. The artist (Dido) expresses emotion to her listeners with her voice and melodies
I know you think that I shouldn't still love you
Or tell you that.
But if I didn't say it, well I'd still have felt it...
Where's the sense in that?
I promise I'm not trying to make your life harder
Or return to where we were...
But I will go down with this ship
and I won't put my hands up and surrender
There will be no white flag above my door
I'm in love and always will be...
- Dido, "White Flag"
