We were really into VAV’s last single, but wondered if it was a bit of a one-off since the group has had previous issues with quality releases.  Their new single puts our fears to rest.

Taking their shot at the poppy, Carribean sound, VAV showcases strong vocals and charisma, something that they have always had but was always buried under the…lesser elements of their tracks.  Their harmonies are subtle but on point, the leads give a little melancholy tinge to their vocals despite the upbeat overall sound of the track, and the whole product is very danceworthy.

All that would have made this a good summer transition track, but the lyrics give make it really stick with us.

What we really like in the lyrics, besides the general construction, is how the idea of giving a woman flowers becomes a motif for him to beg for another chance from her.  He knows she’s wants to be done with him, but all he asks is that she listen to him explain (and beg) for as long as it takes for her to count the petals.  If their smell makes her smile, he’s happy.  Her beauty is compared to the flowers.  She threatens to leaves him like a flower after spring.  It’s an interesting connection that doesn’t seem forced and gives the track some nice individuality.

Lyrics:
You hoohoo
you hoohoo you hoohoo
No matter what anyone says
You hoohoo
you hoohoo you hoohoo
No matter what anyone says

Prettier than a flower, she left
Her dazzling smile that is like a sunflower
The sky is blue
And we’re over
I wish this was a dream, someone wake me up
My friends tell me to give up
They’re such bad guys
(I told you tho)

Let’s stop with this break up
It’s all my fault
Just until you count all the petals
Listen to me
It’s too late, wait up
It’s only you for me

No matter what anyone says
You hoohoo
you hoohoo you hoohoo
No matter what anyone says
You hoohoo
you hoohoo you hoohoo
No matter what anyone says

You seem like you made up your mind
About this break up, I know
My mistakes keep repeating
You seem tired, I know
But I’m trying
And I only know you
I’m a guy who can fly like a pilot

Without knowing, I’m walking
I’m praying you’ll be over there
I lost count of how many times
Sometimes, this seems like a thriller
I don’t know how to love
The day is long today

The soft scent of the flowers
If they made you smile
That’s enough for me
(I told you tho)

Let’s stop with this break up
It’s all my fault
Just until you count all the petals
Listen to me
It’s too late, wait up
It’s only you for me

No matter what anyone says
You hoohoo
you hoohoo you hoohoo
No matter what anyone says
You hoohoo
you hoohoo you hoohoo
No matter what anyone says
You hoohoo
you hoohoo you hoohoo
No matter what anyone says

I know
Even though I seem like a player
But you gotta know
My heart is innocent
I know, I can’t tell you everything with only flowers
(I know, I can’t tell you everything with only flowers)
But you gotta know
I mean it, oh oh
(You gotta know that
You gotta know that)

Not yet, hold up
Come back to me
I’m still learning how to love
Come into my arms, make up
Ooh ooh, it’s only you for me

No matter what anyone says
You hoohoo
you hoohoo you hoohoo
No matter what anyone says
You hoohoo
you hoohoo you hoohoo
No matter what anyone says

Prettier than a flower, she left
