Wordsmith Wednesday: Waxahatchee’s “La Loose”

Standard
This week’s Wordsmith Wednesday comes from Waxahatchee‘s song “La Loose” from the album “Ivy Tripp” on Merge Records.
 
The lines are:
 
“I know that I feel more than you do/
I selfishly want you here to stick to”
 
For anyone that’s ever been in an emotionally lopsided relationship, romantic or otherwise, Katie Crutchfield’s lyrics here sum up that experience beautifully in just seventeen words. Admitting you need another person is difficult, especially when that feeling of dependence is not mutual. These lines always feel like a sheepish nod to certain insecurities of my own when I hear them.
