The song is one of the highlights on his debut album that hold so much truth for many people. Sparro's lyrics advocate tolerance among all people in unambiguous terms. "It's a life in color not black and white but some people think they're the ones who got it right. In a room so full you have to be a little more flexible," he sings.
"It is a song that is about living in a country where people, especially in politics, are very homophobic and regard gay people as second class citizens, Sparro tells Arjan in an interview. "I think people need to be a bit more tolerant and flexible and try and see other people's points of view."
Listen to a brand-new Presets remix of "Pocket" that beautifully highlights Sparro's warm and soulful timbre. This man deserves a hit and this is the song that can deliver.
