- Only Girl (In the World)
“Want you to make me feel like I’m the only girl in the world, like I’m the only one that you’ll ever love, like I’m the only one who knows your heart.”
Mainly, this song, for most people, talks about something associated with sex or losing virginity. It also appears that the man involved has more experience than the girl and she wants him to make her feel really good as a girl by making love to her.
- Take a Bow
“But you put on quite a show. You really had me goin’. Curtains finally closin’. That was quite a show. Very entertaining. But it’s over now. Go on and take a bow.”
A sad music that talks about a guy who cheats on a girl and she finds out. But instead of throwing herself unto him or welcoming him back with open arms, she finally gets rid of him and moves on.
