"Crush" as written by and William Patrick Corgan....
You wrap your arms around
A feeling that surrounds
Like liquid peppermint
Just taste the drinks that she served

And this feeling shivers down your spine
Love comes in colors I can't deny
All that matters is love, love, your love

You're sleeping in your bed
Just rest your weary head
Maybe you shouldn't care
Throw away those dreams and dare

And I wonder if it matters to me
Love comes in colors I can't deny
All that shimmers is love, love, your love
Your love
Your love

    General CommentBeautiful song. I can't begin to express my feelings for it. I think that you may be looking to deep for an interpretation, because what Billy's really trying to say that, no matter if it's a crush or if you're just sitting around inside on a rainy day, it's love:
    "Love comes in colors I can't deny
    All that matters is love, love, your love"
    I think that funnily enough, he's trying to say that love is love, so stop thinking about it so much, so therefore, the interpretation of the song shouldn't be bickered over as a complicated matter, because the song ITSELF is saying that it's not that hard to comprehend. He's wondering about love, but realizes that he shouldn't think about it so much because over-analyzing leads to seperation of the body and the mind. That's a no-no.

    General CommentIt's interesting,because the title is 'crush' which generally implies a love that isn't true, and is based more on lust than anything...it is a gorgeous song...but I wonder about the depth of the love and just how ironic/sarcastic this was actually meant to be, considering the title.

    General Commentto me it's all about trying to pinpoint a feeling. Trying to describe the beauty of being in love. I feel it's a very simple yet extremely beautiful song
    "You're sleeping in your bed
    Just rest your weary head
    Maybe you shouldn't care
    Throw away those dreams and dare "
    To me this is all about taking a chance with love.

    General Commentno comments?! this song is so beautiful, one of the best songs from gish. it's so simple too - just saying that when you are in love, you KNOW you are in love because the way everything is changes. you can feel it. anyways, that's what i think...

    General Commentthis is a great love song and one of the greatest songs by Smashing Pumpkins. I think billy corgan is trying to say that there are many forms of love. "Love comes in colors I can't deny". There are many color. Or that love has layers like colors. I don't know, but i could be right or wrong.

    General Commentsmashing pumpkins are great, but gish is nothing but drug inuendos. a great song, but when listening to the pumpkins, dont take everything for face value. billy is smarter than that.
