i live off love
i feed off love
i breathe off love
i think of love
i drink of love
i sink in love
and in the middle of the night i need my love
i need to grieve and need to need and be in love
my love is gonna come to me
tonight

i give my love and all my love to you, my love
i feast on love, a beast for love, release my love
you're scared and unprepared for love, don't care my love
cause youre the only woman i've been dreaming of
i swear to god i'm loving you for that
i swear to god i'm making you my wife

and if you ever leave me
i never will be sore
i'll love you 'til you're lonely
then i'll love you some more just before
ohh..

beauty beauty beauty, there's nobody near me,
there never was
beauty beauty beauty, there's nobody near me,
there never was.

    General CommentThe only way I can rationalize that this song has no comments is to say that it's too beautiful for words.
    But regardless, I adore this song.

    General CommentThis is the kind of song I could get drunk off of.

    It's about truly being in love. For all of it's pleasures and perils.

    General Commenthow i interpret is that the girl doesn't love him back and so "there's nobody near me, there never was" is kind of like saying that being in love and lonely is a horrible kind of beauty. very bittersweet. but that's only my interpretation.

    General Comment"i swear to god i'm loving you for that" should be "i swear to god i'm loving you for life"

    This is more prosaic than rockerbabe's interpretation, but I understand "beauty, beauty, beauty, there's nobody near me, there never was," as the narrator addressing the woman he's singing about. She's the beauty, and he's telling her that he's alone and unattached, so they're free to be together. I kind of sense a warm smile in his voice when he sings that part, so that's why I think the ending is just sweet rather than bittersweet.

    General Commenti believe the song is about a man who loves because he loves to be in love. he loves the action of love and all its consuming powers, though he is not in love with a specific individual. i agree completely with the idea of unattachment, but not so that he can commit to someone... singing "beauty, there's nobody near me, there never was" shows his commitment as a lover of love, no strings attached.

    it took me a long while to finally come to this conclusion. i used to think it was the sweetest song of devotion and trust. but really, its about the lies people allow themselves to feel when they believe someone is truly in love with them when, really, they never were.

    i swear to god i'm making you my wife

    General CommentWithout a doubt what he is saying in those last lines beauty beauty beauty, there's nobody near me,
    there never was
    beauty beauty beauty, there's nobody near me,
    there never was.
    HE is saying that he's never seen anyone as beautiful as she is

    General CommentI'm not a big fan of this song but if you like this you'll love "More" by the Shivers....it seems to be about a man who lost his love through death and she either died in the water or spread her ashes over the water...it literally DID give me....shivers!! (Yep. ..haha, I DID just go there lol)
