Do, do you wanna let go?
Loud volume turn so low low low low low low
Phoenix’s Thomas Mars compares the nature of a high-octane relationship that starts to plummet fast to a stereo volume knob turning the music way down.
We’re going out on a limb here and postulating that this couple’s relationship isn’t turned up to 11 anymore.
Considering he didn’t rush into marriage (he married Sofia Coppola after their second child) I think he’s moved past any kind of ‘honey-moon’ period of delusional happiness. He’s seen this woman have two kids and still wants to be with her, he’s in love. Mars could possibly referencing escaping from a public life and just letting go and tuning everything and everyone else out.
