A New Feeling
Engelwood Feat. Flamingosis Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You could see it in my face
I′m caught up in the wind
I know we're playin′ safe
I know we're playin'
I′m, I′m movin' at your pace
We, we should take a stroll
Tell me is this a date
Tell me is it
I′ll keep
My feelings stowed away
If your feelings stowed away
Your feelings stowed away if my, my
My feelings stowed away
If your feelings stowed away
Your feelings stowed away if my
If you should take your hand
And put it through my arm
We could take the world
If you put your hand
Underneath my skin
You might touch my soul
And I could feel the rain drip off ya
Sour over dollar signs
Tried to hit it like some ibuprofen
Fully charged, Mrs Alkaline
We started off at arm's length
Got me fixin′ yo guitar string
Now I'm sittin′ in this bird's nest
I'm likin′ how my hawk sing
Like call, call me back
You should
Call, call me
Like call, call me back
You, you should
You should
Never
Call me that
Don′t
Call
Call, call me back
I hope
That if you put your hand
And put it through my arm
We could take the world
If you put your hand
Underneath my skin
You might touch my soul
If you should take your hand
And put it through my arm
We could take the world
If you put your hand
Underneath my skin
You might touch my soul
If you reach your hand
And put it through my arm
We could take the world
If you put your hand
Underneath my skin
You might touch my soul
I'll keep
My feelings stowed away
If your feelings stowed away
Your feelings stowed away if my, my
My feelings stowed away




If your feelings stowed away
Your feelings stowed away if my

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to "A New Feeling" by Engelwood feat. Flamingosis describe a hesitant yet hopeful romantic encounter between two individuals. The singer is caught up in the moment, willing to go along with the other person's pace, but unsure if they are actually on a date. They keep their feelings stowed away, waiting for a sign from the other person. The chorus expresses the potential for a deep connection, if only the other person were to reach out and touch their soul, symbolized by putting their hand underneath the singer's skin.


The second half of the song has some interesting wordplay and imagery. The line "Sour over dollar signs" could be interpreted either as being bitter about money or enjoying sour candy, while "tried to hit it like some ibuprofen" suggests a less-than-romantic encounter. However, the singer also describes how they are liking their "hawk sing" and getting closer to the other person, even fixing their guitar string. The repeated line "call me back" suggests a desire for communication and connection, but with the caveat of not being called a certain name.
