The Albatross In My Head

I'm loving the sound of this song, but a little confused as to the meaning behind the lyrics.

Albatross is also a term used for something negative, as in a consistent problem you need to overcome, so does she mean that she's going to be a hindrance to the 'little mouse'? Or is she referring to herself as an albatross due to the fact that it's quite a large bird, and couldn't be bothered less by smaller creatures? Or is it due to the albatross' rarity, ie she's one-of-a-kind, and therefore more precious than 'the millions of other rodents'?

Well, there you go - I'll leave you with that little conundrum for the week. Let me know what you think!

(We have a granite set like this one at home and I was able t…
