The fear of falling in love or emotional attachment
I wrote this song at a time, where I really needed a change in my life. I felt like I was stagnating, that I needed to just pull up my roots and get the hell out of my comfort zone. A week after I wrote it, I actually quit my job and apartment and decided to move to Copenhagen, which is why the title ended up being just that. I'm still wondering, if writing the song was the thing that pushed me 'over the edge' :)
I was never really good at confrontations. Whenever I have something I want to say to people, I don't, and write a song about instead :) This song I wrote, because I had a friend who just kept being an... asshole (Sorry..) Didn't have the guts to tell this person to chill out and start treating other people with respect. And so I wrote You Lay Low instead.
A song about leaving someone, not because you don't love them anymore, but because the love brings you too much pain.
Fun fact: Everlasting and Winter Arrived is about the same romance, just a little time apart.
The title refers to stagnation, the lack of progression. In a way, the song is about rumination; to regurgitate half-cooked food up and chew it thoroughly and then starting all over again. The song describes a moment in a relation, where both parties should quit that stupid romance, cause it's futile.
I wrote it on a harsh January day, right after I moved to Copenhagen. It's a song littered with ambivalence and thoughts of love and solitude.
About sinking so low that you almost drowned, and are yet to decide whether you want to change course towards the surface or continue drowning.
