"I Luv U" as written by and Samuel Dylan Murphy Preston....
I'm not gonna to patronise ya
But trying to write down why I like ya
It doesn't make it any better
To just steal kind words off Phil Spector

And I know all these tired cliches
But I don't know which cliche to say
Because cliches don't have any impact
So I guess I will be matter-of-fact

Cos...It's so good to know ya
I just don't know how to show ya

I love you, you know that
Don't you?
I love you

I'm so sorry that I'm losing
When other boys would leave you swooning
When I finally get my words together
I choke and they are gone forever

But words are words and they mean nothing
Surely I love you counts for something!
So let's be hasty, and let's be reckless
Just being with you leaves me breathless

Cos...It's so good to know ya
I just don't know how to show ya

I love you, you know that
Don't you?
I love you

I love you, you know that
Don't you?
I love you

It's so good to know ya
I just don't know how to show ya

I love you, you know that
Don't you?
I love you

I love you, you know that
Don't you?
I love you

I love you, you know that
Don't you?
I love you....

    General CommentPretty straight forward, Preston is talking about his inability to write a proper love song, so he can only say I love you to get his point across.

    General CommentI can't believe this is the same band that wrote Week In, Week Out and Over The Counter Culture. What a bunch of sellouts.

    General CommentSo I was wondering if the song isn't just that he doesn't know how to tell her he loves her, or how to write a love song...it's more that he doesn't know how to tell her he loves her without it sounding too impersonal and cliched - hence the lines about tired cliches.

    I feel the same about my good lady - I can tell her I love her all day long, but it isn;t anything new and individual. He wants a way of expressing he loves her at such a depper level than he can manage with the standard "I love you like a ....

    General CommentAlthough "I Luv U" is absolutely nothing like "Seaside" or other TOB songs, it's still a cute love song. It's one of my favourites... Preston and company really know how to make charming music, if you ask me...

    General CommentWHAT HAPPENED???

    I used to love this band. Seriously, they were fantastic. But now they're churning out this kind of crap I cannot bare to listen to them. A real shame they sold out, a real shame.
