...Oh and that's alright with me''
charming or crass?
i'm asking about how we should view that specific statement
and much deliberation I came to this conclusion:
i imagine the narrator saying it to his woman to deliberatly wind her up....like she's obviously beautiful, the most beautiful woman he's ever seen... but saying that is a bit cloying an easy...so he sort of jokes....'hey, you're not amazing, but you'll do'...with a wry smile....she'll give him a playful hit and then they'll fuck on top of a car.
'oh and that's alright with me'....that makes it seem like he's being really serious
i dunno. what do the feminists think?
that's why it's great.
He's obviously very fond of her looks eg. going on about her hair etc.
He's probably not a looker either - the point is that they're in love and that's what matters now let's hit the open road and roll on out to a better tomorrow
also, in the next verse he says.....'well i'm no hero, that's understood'
it's like he's saying they're both flawed and neither of them would play the leading role in any movie apart from their own
which i think is quite beautiful.
Literally crying at 'and then they'll fuck on top of a car.'
I dont know why
it ruins it for me a bit this suggestion they're actually both really hot and he's just saying it for a laugh.
I had all the visuals worked out in my head- she'd just come back from the war burnt and he doesn't even mind because he's lovely like that.
