And ooh girl, I want to embrace you
But you belong to the world
Abel wanna settle down with this girl, he would try and convince her to give it a shot at a real relationship, where his money isn’t the things she’s after. When you’re domesticated you’re settled.
Literal meaning: Despite knowing that should leave this girl alone. Abel want’s to “Domesticate” her and show the girl what real love entails; compared the materialism ways she is accustomed too.
Figurative meaning: Abel wants the mainstream success now, but he wants it on his terms. He wants to create his own legacy and does not want to be pushed into a direction by the labels and music corporations.
