"Dolphin" as written by Thomas Peter Gladwin, Joseph Camburn Johnson, Alan Steven Leach and Richard James Witter....
Would you give blood if you had any
would you say i'm good or are there far too many
fish in the sea
won't you please say that again
shame on you
there's something in my head
and it's got it's back to me

one day i'll make you sing my praises
but at the moment i'm far too lazy
to get down on your knees
i'm begging please say that again
i'll carry on for as long as i have to
come round to my house
and i'll show you how to
get down on your knees
i'm begging please say that again

shame on you
there's something in my head
and it's got it's back to me

would you walk near me
if you knew how to
could i ever see you and
do you know how to
get down on your knees
i'm begging please say that again
shame on you
there's something in my legs
and they never walk to me

would you give blood if you had any
would you say i'm good or are there far too many
fish in the sea
won't you please say that again

shame on you
there's something in my head
and it's got it's back to me
shame on you
there's something in my legs
and they never walk to me

shame on you
there's something in my mouth
and it never talks to me
shame on you
there's something in my head
and it's got it's back to me

    My InterpretationThe song appears to be about an unapproachable person, that the singer can’t approach and/or is afraid of

    In Jungian psychological terms it appears to be about the Anima possession of a man (check this explanation) shadowdance.com/articles/…

    See point 4 on this page also about animus/anima
    eroticawithsoul.blogspot.com/2009/01/…

    Also a psychological term called limerance en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…


    Projected onto another person (crush) or fantasy female image (anima) in the singer’s head that he’s fighting against


    “One day I think you'll sing my praises
    But at the moment you're far too lazy to
    Get down on your knees
    I'm begging please say that again”

    “Shame on you
    There's something in my head
    And it's got its back to me”


    Temporary body paralysis due to nerves/fear (also fighting the internal anima in his head)

    ”Shame on you
    There's something in my legs
    And they never walk to me”

    Again can’t speak due to nerves/fear (also fighting the anima in his head)

    “Shame on you
    There's something in my mouth
    And it never talks to me”

    Is jealous as the girl (the crush) is with another and sees her as cold and unapproachable (perhaps due to his fear)

    “Would you give blood if you had any?
    Would you say I'm good or are there far too many fish in the sea?
    Won't you please say that again?”
