Flora Summers – “Little While Longer” The chorus is as euphoric as one could hope for, but there is a message in longing, loneliness, and desperate romantic tenacity being conveyed here. One might parse that out with the title, but it’s made evident with lines in the chorus like “We’re losing touch and I can’t, I really can’t give you up yet”. These relatable and heartwrenching lyrics are emphasized by layers upon layers of harmony and double-tracked vocals. The meaning of the song is not muddled in all these layers, and is only accentuated.
