“Motion” by Khalid
“Motion” is a song by noted American singer Khalid (real name Khalid Donnel Robinson). The song finds the narrator Khalid totally entranced by his object of interest. To him, nothing in the entire universe feels better than being deeply in love with his treasure.
Overall, the lyrics center heavily on the narrator’s deep feelings of love for the apple of his eye.
“Honey, I forgot to mention
I’m so entranced by you, it hurts”
We guess the lines above (from the track’s first verse) sum up the entire song. For someone to be so entrance by someone else to the point where it begins to hurt means that love is no ordinary love! At least that’s our two cents. And we guess it’s yours too!
