Review

There is a bit of a story here: there has been a party, and the guest are leaving.  There is a cake with a single candle.

Amaral seems to be happy in some lines, yet frustrated with her partner in others. 

She's had a nice day, yet says she's having trouble smiling, then launches off into a stream of consciousness about wanting to be free etc. 

She calms down at the end and remember stuff from her youth, yet still want to know if her partner wants to eat the last bit of cake?  Maybe has some figurative meaning?

It is a little bit sad, but has a thumping chorus where you feel she will get what she wants in her universe, if not today, at some point.

The slower parts of the song the vocalist is seen in a dull room with one of the guitar players.  He's generally looking like he's depressed, or very pensive anyway.

She's made up with a lot of black eyeliner which is her trademark look.   Why anyone over the age of 25 needs to show their belly-button I don't know.

You see the band playing live in the chorus sections and she gets animated about what she wants to do.

Sadly no real connection with the lyrics for language learners in the YouTube ide - but a nice visually interesting video.   This was the song that made me realise I needed to code the 'cloud lingo script' video system.
