okay ik i don't go here BUT i've been listening to pheonix after stanning pretty much all of her singles and i'm not obsessed with cashmere to the point i'm analysing the lyrics and i've come to the conclusion that it's about a woman but ben does not agree, so i wanted to make a thread to settle this debate x

here are the lyrics for your reference:

[Intro]
Yeah, yeah, yeah

[Verse 1]
City lights, blurry face
Been missing the feeling, the mistakes
Took a walk, fast pace
Shoes off, only four blocks to your place

[Pre Chorus]
Had to climb through the window 'cause you lost your key
Gettin' high with the lights low, had a few more drinks
And the next thing we know, your lips on me
Put it on so you can take it off of me

[Chorus]
Cashmere, left it lying by your bed
It's the colour red, how could I forget?
Cashmere (Cashmere), last night we made such a mess
I knew when I left, I'd see you again
So what if I did it on purpose?
So what? Yeah, I did it on purpose
Cashmere (Cashmere), left it lying by your bed
I knew when I left, I'd see you again
Yeah, yeah, yeah

[Verse 2]
Left a mark on my neck
But I don't mind and I don't try to hide it
You woke me up on your chest
And tonight let's do it all again

[Pre Chorus]
We'll climb through the window, you can lose your key
Gettin' high with the lights low, had a few more drinks
And the next thing we know, your lips on me
Put it on so you can take it off of me

[Chorus]
Cashmere, left it lying by your bed
It's the colour red, how could I forget?
Cashmere (Cashmere), last night we made such a mess
I knew when I left, I'd see you again
So what if I did it on purpose?
So what? Yeah, I did it on purpose
Cashmere (Cashmere), left it lying by your bed
I knew when I left, I'd see you again
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah (Cashmere), yeah (Cashmere), yeah

[Outro]
Cashmere, left it lying by your bed
It's the colour red, how could I forget?
Cashmere (Cashmere), last night we made such a mess
I knew when I left, I'd see you again


here is my reasoning:
  • She's bi so there's gotta be more songs about that than just girls, especially on this album i'd have thought
  • The piece of Cashmere clothing is hers but it's usually a more feminine material anyway - soft, comforting etc a metaphor for a WOMAN perhaps? ohmy.gif
  • Lips are one of the most prominent features on a LADY (interpret as you will)
  • "Put it on so you can take it off me" - a guy is hardly gonna put on a womans jumper are they, they must have the SAME body type for them to share clothing
  • "i dont try to hide it" - her accepting and being open about being with girls
i need to prove a point x

Honestly I hadn't actually thought about it but you do make some valid points, especially with this album supposedly being more personal to her. I'm sure Joseph can ask her at ha next M&G
