song lyrics meaning

Black Wings cover Black Wings by Tom Waits

You don’t need to go much further than the song title. What has black wings and is in human form? A dark angel interacting with mortals, doing the kind of things that “normal” angels don’t do. Certainly supernatural, not all bad, but doing the dirty work that some have coming. However, confused by “Others admire him because he steals his promise”…. Deep dive into the Old Testament required? Great imagery top to bottom!

Slow Fade cover Slow Fade by Ruth B.

"Crazy how it was me and you From the start of the sun and moon, Held each other through it, We were young and foolish, Now we're dancing like we're done, We found the end of the moon and sun,Was it always like this? 'Cause now it's always like this" The sun and moon refers to knowing the partner for a long time, and by the end they have found the end of the sun and moon(the break up). The narrator thinks back on there relationship and how it used to be. Overall this song does an amazing job of going through all motions of a breakup.

Slow Fade cover Slow Fade by Ruth B.

The first verse describes her thoughts as she is stuck on this sad and heartbreaking feeling of realizing things aren't working out n a relationship. "The light has disappeared, The dust has settled here, but i still want you near" refers to the happiness in their relationship in a metaphorical way of saying that their relationship is not being tended to anymore(dust collecting), yet she still isn't able to let go. "So I've been waiting for that slow fade, Kinda hoping that you won't stay, There's no color in us lately ,And it's too hard to say I've been praying that we'll lose our love in slow fade" this verse explains the narrators idea of wanting the relationship to end, just not in a harsh chaotic way, but in a slow fade. She realizes its not worth her time and energy.
