How Can I

How Can I call you my lover Sage Suede

I wrote this song about millennial dating. Nowadays, most people meet through dating apps and it is great to meet someone worthwhile, but oftentimes they are already talking to other people before they even meet you. So it’s optimistic to even expect dating to go anywhere when you meet someone from an app. Of course, if you talk with someone and they are an honest person, they should tell you where you stand. It’s just that in the modern, technological age we live in, the dating phase is longer than you’d expect. You won’t get to be exclusive with people as quickly, or as easily and that’s the premise of this song. How can you even call someone a lover, if they want to see other people, or they are unwilling to settle down?

This applies more to people dating in their teens to early twenties, because as you get older, there is more consistency and desire to settle down. It’s nothing to get worked up about, because it won’t get you anywhere. Just be clear with your partner when you would like to be exclusive.

Sometimes, this happens really quickly, but usually it takes at least a few dates and several weeks. Since I’m talking about this concept, I would also like to mention that you don’t want to tell someone you love them too early on, because it makes you seem desperate. Of course, situational timing is in play and there is love at first sight, but in general I don’t think you would want to say “I love you” until at least 3 months have passed. I’ve heard about sooner and there are people that get married in weeks, but that’s just my advice based on modern dating in the western world. This is an angsty tune about that.

How Can I lyrics by Sage Suede


I was looking at the moon
la lune
and she says be there soon
shut in like a coccoon
butterfly
too dark to go and fly
rubberneck dirt road
killing my flow
not sure
how to cope
when it’s just picking up a fight
a girl just like any other

How can I call you my lover
when we still want another
hand and hand but wondering
why do we even bother
perfect is a dirty word
don’t think I have ever heard
a single lie just quite as dry
but loving you feels just right

I was walking down the street
you’d speak
beautiful words muttered
under your breath
confess to me
through my window shutters
seen so many details of so many females
like to hear her tale
read her like an email
must be like a single light
a spark that struck me just right

How can I call you my lover
when we still want another
hand and hand but wondering
why do we even bother
perfect is a dirty word
don’t think I have ever heard
a single lie just quite as dry
but loving you feels just right

farewell
but you cast your spell
I wanted to see it through
you rang the bell
and my pride fell
I’ll come crawling
back to you
warm fuzzy full it’s like
orange fills my soul
this light
could keep me there
could make me stare
into your eyes
and kiss you tonight

How can I call you my lover
when we still want another
hand and hand but wondering
why do we even bother
perfect is a dirty word
don’t think I have ever heard
a single lie just quite as dry
but loving you feels just right
