I’m just going to put it out there. This song seriously irritates me.
The concept is a guy reassuring his woman of his affection for her. Lines like “Just have to walk away sometimes” suggest that the couple went through a period of estrangement, which makes it understandable why the woman might doubt her man’s genuine love for her.
But honestly, if this situation were to play out in real life, would the guy really get anywhere by calling her “crazy girl” and “silly woman,” before saying “Don’t you know that I love you?” It reminds me of the same cocky attitude heard in The Lost Trailers’ “How ‘Bout You Don’t,” and it sounds just plain disrespectful of the woman’s feelings.
Beyond the chorus, the verses are innocuous enough, but there’s just nothing here to overcome the fact that the song’s hook falls spectacularly flat.
