"From The Start" by Laufey is a poignant exploration of unrequited love. The lyrics depict the protagonist's emotional turmoil as she grapples with her feelings for someone who does not reciprocate them. She experiences discomfort in silence, yearning for mutual affection, and frustration over hearing about her beloved's new partner. The repeated invocation of Cupid symbolizes the involuntary nature of her love, which strikes her like an arrow to the heart. Despite sounding "like a loon," she hopes that her beloved might also feel something for her. Her confession of love from the start underscores the depth and longevity of her feelings. This song thus captures the pain and longing inherent in one-sided love, while also expressing a desperate hope for reciprocation.
