WAXING LYRICAL WITH PRINCE OF SWEDEN

As an integral part of any song, lyrics act a way for artists to divulge their thoughts with listeners, but with so many songs out there, how can you be sure to hear all of these messages?

To grasp these hidden meanings, we have asked PRINCE OF SWEDEN to showcase some of their favourite, original lyrics and are pleased to feature them as our Waxing Lyrical!

Today’s Waxing Lyrical With PRINCE OF SWEDEN dives into the lyrics of their song ‘A LITTLE CANDLELIGHT’.

Prince of Sweden is a 28 year-old singer-songwriter from South London.

Brought up in the country, he learned guitar from the guy with the strawberry farm opposite his house. In winter they'd sell Christmas trees together and jam afterwards. His main musical education came, however, from his dad's one-man a capella rendition of Led Zeppelin's Black Dog.

Long intrigued by lyricism and poetry, Prince of Sweden cites Arctic Monkeys, Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits as his main influences.

Lyrics

Verse 1
Did he break the spell, the illusion that you don’t need anyone else?
You used to hide it well, keeping secrets’ easy when there’s no one around to tell,
Those off-the-cuff furtive remarks,
Do you still wait ‘til after dark?

Did he find the key to unlock your heart more than you thought it could be,
The time for you to be young has a drink in hand and its lips round a loaded gun,
A single shot, a slice of lime,
Weekend romance on your mind

Chorus
On those Tuesday nights when you’re pacing the floor,
And common sense takes its leave as he opens the door,
However much you say you’re not, however hard you try,
You’re a sucker for a little candlelight

Verse 2
Did you get a scare when he found something of which you were unaware,
You’ll tell him where you’ve been, your darkest secrets and everything in-between,
And everywhere you want to go,
In the hope he’ll be there tomorrow
