Surname 1 Name Professor Course Date Colder Weather Introduction Colder Weather is a love song by the Zac Brown band which tells the story of lovers who cannot be together since the man is not willing to make a firm decision of taking the girl with him. Love is a very complex feeling that remains strong regardless of the distance or barrier between two lovers. Love as the main subject in the song enables the author to show how a man with a secret lover is unable to resolve the conflict of making a decision. The subject love is important in bringing out curiosity and suspense which reflects how men take advantage of women’s weaknesses by using them s sexual objects. The main theme evident from Zac Brown’s song Colder Weather is that of love where the author uses diction, symbolism and irony to exemplify it. Body The author uses verbal irony to show the theme of love when the male character states that he does not want the girl but he needs her (AZ lyrics 1). It is very ironic to need somebody and yet not want them. The male character shows that as much he needs the girl he cannot be with him since he is in a dilemma. He has love and lust for her yet he does not want her to be the love of his life. The male character states in AZ Lyrics (2016), “I love you but I leave you.” The situational irony of the man leaving the girl though he loves him also brings out the theme of love. It is ironic to love somebody yet leave them behind. It is clear that there is something that is Surname 2 preventing the man, who is deeply in love with the girl, to be with her. Both verbal and situational irony are literary elements that show how the man who is deeply in love with the girl is in a dilemma and cannot choose to be with her. The author uses symbolism to bring out the theme of love. The male character states that he is stuck in cold weather (AZ lyrics 1). The cold weather is a symbol representing, most likely, another woman who cannot allow him to make a call to his secret lover, he blames the “cold weather” for not calling his lover. The man loves the girl but the other woman in his life is the blame for him not being with the girl. Another example of symbolism that is used to bring the theme of love is when the author says tomorrow will be better to make a call (AZ lyrics 1). The character does not literally mean the next day, tomorrow is a symbol representing a time when the other woman is not able to hear him make the call. Tomorrow could be anytime as long as it is appropriate for the two lovers to have a private conversation without being caught. Through the diction used in the song, the theme of love is clearly brought out. The male character admits that he is a gypsy (AZ lyrics 1). A gypsy person is one who keeps on going back and forth, he is undecided whether to be with the other woman or the girl, and he needs the girl but does not want her. The choice of the word gypsy vividly brings out the love dilemma. The male character states that he is stuck in the cold weather. The male character states that he is stuck (AZ lyrics 1). The choice of the word stuck has a great impact in showing the great barrier between the lovers that is stopping them from being together. The male character admits to being in a situation that he does not like and the word stuck perfectly describes his situation. Diction that is evident in the word stuck and gypsy gives the lines a very deep meaning. Surname 3 Conclusion In conclusion, the song Colder Weather has a very strong theme of love that is brought out by the use of diction, symbolism and irony to show how complicated the relationship is. The song makes the reader dive into a world of imagination and feel the kind of dilemma that the male character was in despite the strong love he had for the girl. The irony makes the reader curious to find out how the love story ends. Symbolism as a literary skill helped give a deeper and more vivid description to the theme of love.
