I’ve always took it as you’re falling for someone but you’re afraid to get too close or let yourself fully fall for them. “I wanna hold you close I just never wanna hold you tight.“ There’s an uncertainty about it—like you want to be with someone but the way you feel about them scares you so you kinda love them from a distance. They are on your mind constantly and you “keep calling their name.” Even the bridge where it goes, “Oh my goodness, here I go again. Pulling you back to me, pulling you back into my arms so selfishly. I don’t think I understand cause I don’t really know myself” It’s like she’s not fully sure how she feels about this person because she does not really know what she wants…all she knows is that she wants to be with them. She is into them but is not sure she should let herself fall because they way she feels about them is scary/confusing but it’s not fair to the other person for her to be unsure, but she can’t stop because she likes them. The irony of it is that it’s seems like such a light hearted song but the lyrics can be dark in a way.
Or, it could just be about a booty call, y’know. Haha.
it’s days like today that makes the distance hard
it’s days like today when i just want to hold you in my arms
it’s days like today when the sun hides behind the clouds
and missing are the three words you constantly whisper out loud
