I'm making you a promise
That this is forever and ever
One of the hardest promises to make is one of long-term, permanent commitment. Rather than something that can be dropped or ignored, the effort requires deep connection, the risk of hurt, and a certain awareness. The themes of “3x3,” a dark mix of love torn pain and obvious signs of more unusual relationship structures and behaviors, work perfectly with the promise of the line. Seemingly more of a threat than a suggestion, the singer is bound in flesh and desire to the other(s), planning to stay at all costs.
