“So Long” by Diplo (Ft. Cam)
The song is based on the singer (Cam) seducing – for lack of a better word – a romantic interest. And her argument for him to submit to her love seems to be based on her concluding that he has spent “so long” alone that he could logically use a partner.
Indeed she recognizes that he is “fine doing life on (his) own” and is good when it comes to being lonely. However, she is also thoroughly convinced that her love will edify his life, as she rationalizes that although he is effectively flying solo that in no way means he should end up spending his life alone.
She also acknowledges that her love is ‘what his heart wants’. Owing to this, she is now putting the onus on him to make up his mind in terms of letting her into his life, which she is convinced is what he actually desires.
