“Nobody But You” by Blake Shelton (ft. Gwen Stefani)
This is a song recited by two real-life lovers. And accordingly its title and overall theme are based on the singers (Blake Shelton and Gwen Stefani) only having romantic feelings for each other. Or stated differently, they “don’t want to love anybody” – particularly from a romantic perspective – but one another.
In the first verse, Blake recognizes that he has a good partner and doesn’t want to forsake the relationship only to realize later down the road that he’s made a monumental mistake . And both vocalists proclaim that they have already wasted enough time in life on what can perhaps be deemed as fruitless romances.
So in recognition of such, they want to fully take advantage of the love which stands before them in the here and now. And as such this is very much a romance song. For the vocalists are stating in front of God almighty that they don’t want “nobody but” each other.
