“Share That Love” by Lukas Graham (ft. G-Eazy)
All lyrics of “Share That Love” considered, this piece comes off as sort of a ‘Bonnie and Clyde’ inspired love song. You have the vocalist and addressee, out on the open road, holding each other down to the last penny and living the type of lifestyle where all that matters is what lies ahead, not behind.
Later in the song, G-Eazy implies that they are running from the law and are furthermore lovers.
Actually, it is only in that third verse that such is implied, i.e. the addressee being a romantic interest, and she and the vocalist being on the run. As far as the segments, i.e. those held down by Lukas Graham, they read more as if he may be addressing a close friend. And along those lines, it has been revealed that the inspiration behind this track was Lukas growing up in a distinct part of Copenhagen known as Freetown Christiania.
According to Graham, people living there really did share that love, in their own special ways. Christiania appears to be a lot more selfless than communities you usually find in the big city.
So perhaps we can conclude by saying that the topic at hand meant two different things to the artists involved. To Lukas, he may be referring to literally leaving the ‘hood, but more to the point is he and the unspecified addressee fearlessly facing the future by each other’s sides. But the way G-Eazy flips the narrative is as he and his girl being on the run, and her not being compelled to go back due to the ‘hard times she’s been through’.
