“Sweet Nothing” by Calvin Harris (ft. Florence Welch)
What appears to be going down in “Sweet Nothing” is that first of all, the addressee would be the vocalist’s romantic partner. By the looks of things, said individual is well versed in speaking love to Florence. However, said musings are not backed up by effective action. So at the end of the day, the vocalist is basically plagued by an unfulfilling romance.
