"L'Amour Stories" as written by and Satomi Matsuzaki John Dieterich....
What's that core on the floor?
What's that core on the floor?
What the devil was that for?
What the devil was that for?

What's that core on the floor?
What's that core on the floor?
What the devil was that for?
What the devil was that for?
What the devil was that for?

Try to lift him up for me
He would do harm, bad indeed
Try to lift him up for me
He would do harm, bad indeed

More L'Amour

Try to lift him up for me
He would do harm, bad indeed
Try to lift him up for me
He would do harm, bad indeed

More L'Amour

La la la...

More L'Amour

La la la...

    General CommentDeerhoof are singing about something very very deep, personal, and emo, like apples.

    General CommentI think this song is a reference to Adam and Eve...but then again, who said that Deerhoof songs made any sense.

    General CommentAdam and Eve is definitely a possibility, since they reference the Fall (Lift him up for me), and there are number of other clues. These include: the fact that the preceding song is "Forbidden Fruits," that some voice in the lyrics asks accusatorily about a core, and that there's a mention of the devil. I think what this really is about, though, is love (l'amour), and that the song tries to suggest that just as the devil, or our darker side (whatever made Eve eat the apple) can bring us down, love can lift us back up.
