the saltwater holds all her memories. like waterfalls her thoughts cascade into melting imagery reflections and crystals over the sea she is so romantic with the night sky that she will never love the day. ocean’s daughter. the container of mystic waters. her pain haunts her. the howls she hears that nobody else can. the feeling that she is just too much, but then again, nothing at all. in the river of her veins i can swim to treasure chests. i am lead into oceanic heaven, i am free of my body and my worries. i am following a sovereign of the sea -cherry
If you look at the bottom left corner of the screen, you’ll see Maya has sheet music for Girl From Ipanema. This is a jazz standard that is actually typically sung by women, no pronouns changed. (My favorite version is Amy Winehouse.)
Anyway, the first verse goes Tall and tan and young and lovely The girl from Ipanema goes walkin’ And when she passes Each one she passes goes ‘Ahh”
This, I think is referring to multiple girls liking Lucas. Not saying everyone, but it’s basically saying that Maya isn’t the only one in the running, that she has someone in the way.
Oh, but I watch her so sadly How can I tell her I love her Yes, I would give my heart gladly But each day when she walks to the sea She looks straight ahead not at me
This is pretty obvious. It shows that though Maya has feelings for him, he is oblivious and cannot have him. (There’s another verse but it’s basically just a reiteration of the first verse.)
So this wasn’t very mindblowing, but it’s just another little clue planted by the writers
[EDIT: So I got a lot of notes about why this is about rilaya rather than lucaya. The reason I spoke about lucaya was because I thought the narrative route the show is heading down gave evidence for them, and because this is traditionally a song where gender is typically not important/irrelevant. I also thought that once gender was cast aside, the lyrics made sense to be about Lucas. That said, I see so much evidence for rilaya, especially because Riley has a lot of suitors (Farkle, Lucas, Charlie) and maya wouldn’t think Riley would like her that way. Thanks for the feedback, I love widening my perspectives about my theories.)
