this is a song i co-wrote with two chaps in cork called ‘fish go deep’. for the lyric i fantasized about being a heterosexual male … my lady is beautiful and we love each other,but something is wrong…i imagine due to unrest in the political world,there’s been a down turn in the economy,so me and my darling are making the best of this bad situation,and even though we’ve no money right now,she still has one fine elegant expensive gucci gown…it lifts my spirit to see her wearing it. due to lack of credit at the bank,we won’t be going out on the town anytime soon,but i urge her to wear her glamorous dress anyway…we slowdance around the living room of our sparse home, then later we make love…the real love that money can’t buy.. yes, we are sad due to our circumstance,but deep down in our souls we can find fulfilment in our love life.
then again of course,it could just be about a straight forward ding dong in a relationship where the fella is maybe trying to clear the air or wants to make his girl feel better…that’s the thing with songs..they’re subjective and always open to interpretation … often the fruit n nut songwriter is the last person worth listening to…hahaha
all my loving … fairy mary of the wilderness.
