"Fantasy" as written by Oliver David Sim, Romy Anna Madley Croft, James Thomas Smith and Baria Qureshi....
For the desired effect
Would you come back August or June, June
And I hate that tomorrow's too soon
But this collision, came mid bloom

Better built to resume
I'll see you August, see you June
I'm building higher than I can see
I want fantasy

Don't rest with the less
I'm burning to impress
It's deep in the middle of me
I can be fantasy

    General CommentIs it just me or does the riff at the end (from 2:10 to 2:25) sound like it matches the next track "Shelter" - although it's much slower. Every time I listen to it, in my head I hear Romy singing "maybe I had said, something that was wrong. Can I make it better, with the lights turned on"

    General CommentI agree, definitely feel that it could perhaps be about unrequited love or wanting so badly to be in a relationship and that position to have someone to love, and love in return ('I'm burning to impress') be comfortable and yourself around that person completely, basically by saying ('I can be fantasy') its trying to prove all these emotions and feelings you want to feel and can share with someone.
    So, so beautiful.
    Incredible bass also.

    General Commentamazing amazing amazing song.

    i think its about two people that were in a relationship that failed. they're right for each other, but its just bad timing. so he's saying come back to me at a later point in time. and in the meantime, i'll fix myself to be perfect for you, because i want a perfect relationship.

    or something?

    a lot of the songs on the album almost border on codependency. i think this kind of adds to that.

    General CommentI think it's about two people that want to be together-but may be in another realtionship.
    He desire's her now but They collieded to soon. He need's to finish what he started. She is his fantasy.

    For the desired effect
    Would you come back August or June, June
    And I hate that tomorrow's too soon
    But this collision, came mid bloom

    He's telling her not to settle for who's she's with. He can give her more. He can be her fantasy.

    Don't rest with the less
    I'm burning to impress
    It's deep in the middle of me
    I can be fantasy


    I may be a 100% wrong but it's just my way of interperiting it. When I hear this song; that's what I think of, only because I am in this postion, and the word's flow perfectly with how I feel.

    This collision came mid-bloom

    General CommentI love this song. I think he is asking his ex to come back but just not yet because it is still too soon. There is still too much pain ("and I hate that tomorrows too soon") meaning he isn't over the hurt yet, but he misses her and given some time he will be over the hurt and ready to resume the relationship. I can relate to this song since this is exactly what I am going thru. I miss my recent ex gf but with the way things ended and the way she treated me I just cant be a part of her life right now...maybe August, maybe June :p

    The part I am not sure about is when he says "I'm building higher than I can see"...does he mean he is building her up in his mind or that he is building himself up to be better upon her return?

    General CommentThis song makes me think of unrequited love, and when that persons rejects you, you start to fantasize about what might happen in the future, and maybe the person will change their mind, and come right back to you.. But it never happens..

    General CommentWe lust for what we cannot have,
    A long, unbroken chain
    Of lovers who remain unloved
    And loved who love in vain.
