As a former YouTube star, Charlie Puth has already gotten his foot into the music world. He is surely on the rise. Charlie Puth is a man of his music.
“One Call Away” featured on his first album “Nine Track Mind,” is gaining popularity by the minute. The saying “Call me if you need me,” is used so casually in the world today, but Puth stays trye to that. After the intro chorus, the song starts off by saying ” call me baby, if you need a friend, I just wanna give you love. C’mon, c’mon,c’mon. Reaching out to you, so take a chance.” Charlie is expressing his love to her telling her that he is here for her as a friend. That if she ever needs anything, he is there. That’s his purpose. He wants to show that he loves and cares for her. Even though she seems to be a bit reluctant to what he is saying, Puth is constantly trying to draw her nearer telling her that it is okay to reach out to him. Since she is being reluctant to what he is saying, he makes the first step and reaches out o her first. He wants her to know that he is here for her.
It then moves to the pre-chorus saying, “No matter where you go, you know you’re not alone.” Even though Puth may not physically be there with here, emotionally he is there. He needs her to know that. Even when he is not present, he is there close to her.
Verse two goes on to say, “Come along with me and don’t be scared. I just wanna set you free. C’mon, c’mon, c’mon. You and me can make it anywhere, but for now, e can stay here for a while cause you know, I just want to see your smile.” You can see here that his desire is to just make her happy. Making here happy in ways that she knows that she is loved and cared for .
The song then moves on the chorus saying, “I’m only one call away. I’ll be there to save the day. Superman got nothing on me, I’m only one call away.” Superman is you know, superman, but the abilities of Superman does not compare to the abilities of Puth. He’s there here way before Superman will be, Only he can save her.
In the bridge he goes on to say,”…I’m gonna keep holding on, Now don’t you worry, it won’t be long…” He is letting her know that pain does not last forever. It is only a temporary feeling to a temporary circumstance. He is here to love and to protect her.
From this song, you can see the type of man and music artist that Puth is. His music is going to go even further.
