Gavin DeGraw - Chariot

Your favorite fruit is chocolate covered cherries and watermelon, ohh.

Hey there. Happy month of May! Time for the allergies and flowers to spring up, for good or bad. ;)

This song is a very metaphorical song, so if you don't understand it, that's fine with me. I don't quite grasp the meaning of it either, but that's okay. The song itself is still great.

This is a quote for the all-wonderful Gavin DeGraw about this song -
Chariot is a metaphorical vehicle for getting to a place in your mind that is a more broken down and laid back. It's somewhere to be just for a moment--instead of being wrapped up and living wherever you're living and consumed with what you're doing. It's a place to release and chill out.
In the music video, there is a girl who meets Gavin in his simple life and brings him to parties and shows him things that aren't his style. In the end, it's all a green screen, showing that it's just a visual seance.

To me, this song is about simplicity. Like in the first few lines of the song, it talks about favorite fruit. In day to day life, favorite fruit doesn't really matter as much as work or school or other priorities people have placed at a higher need.
Keep those things in mind.

Have a great day.
Until next time,

Rains made mirrors of the earth.
