“You got a dream, you need to chase that, we need to bounce ASAP, they say you only get one shot, believe I’m gonna take that, and make that.”
This is one of my faves off The Rose Tint, partly because it captures a very real time in our lives. All the little details in there, from the tape adaptor plugged into the iphone, to getting rid of the Nikes and all the ‘useless shit’ on Trade Me, to a conversation about just needing to get out of here, the need for change – that first verse isn’t just some words strung together, it all actually happened. It makes the song so much sweeter seeing that verse played out in New York, the destination that had been set as a goal while we lived in a one bedroom apartment in 2009. We didn’t yet know how it was going to happen, but we knew it would.
The second verse? Well, that happened too, but that ain’t got shit to do with me P.S. This is the second time I’ve played a bitch in one of Dave’s clips, remember this?
