"Saturday Come Slow" as written by Robert Del Naja, Damon Albarn, Grantley Evan Marshall, Daniel Jonathan Brown and Stewart Neville Jackson....
Lost in the magic
From the last time
This town turning
My rose to desire

Saturday comes slow
Do you love me?
Do you love me?
Or is there nothing there?

In the limestone caves
In the south west lands
One time in the kingdom
Believe is on the sand

Saturday comes slow
Do you love me?
Do you love me?
Or is there nothing there?

Saturday comes slow
Do you love me?
Do you love me?
Do you love me?
Do you love me?
Or is there nothing there?

    Lyric CorrectionMy rose to desire

    I think it should be 'My arrows to desire'

    General CommentAmazing song, no idea what it's about. The only thing I can think about is from the first verse.

    Lost in the magic
    Lost in the dream.

    From the last time
    Last time he was with the girl.

    This town turning
    Where he lives now.

    My rose to desire
    The town is changing the amazing love he has for women to a love that is just based on wanting sex.

    I truly have no idea really, I wanna see more people interpret this song.

    Saturday come slow
    Do you love me
    Do you love me
    Is there nothing there
    It's like he's with the girl and he can't understand if she loves him or not and asking "Is there nothing there?". Even though he may know she don't love him, he doesn't want saturday to come.

    Again, no idea <.< I'm just giving my two cents.

    General CommentGreat song.. overwhelming.. it makes me feel a bit lost in memories and far far from reality and that's maybe what the song is about - just this moment when one's mind is "lost in the magic from the last time" and cannot wait till Saturday.

    My InterpretationBeautiful song. I get lost in the melody of his voice with the instruments and beats.

    I think it's about falling in love with someone, but fearing that love won't be returned.

    General CommentFantastic song, I guess about longing for love (Saturday might be a symbol for finding love, because he goes out then) and just can't wait for it to happen.

    General CommentWhen he speaks of "this town turning my rose into desire," it sounds like he had innocent feelings at first, perfectly romantic and the like, but now is slowly starting to turn sexual. The mantra of "do you love me?" sounds like anxiety than longing, almost like a cry of an obsession. As far as the day goes perhaps he met her on Saturday.

    When I first heard this song I imagined a stripper dancing in front of this person who in turn takes her display as an invitation, despite subconsciously knowing it's all a show. I get stripper from the town, which I associated it with a place along the lines of Vegas but it kinda sounds farfetched even to me but that's my two cents on it.

    I found it funny that after I listened to the album and spun my take on it they played this onTrue Blood with a scene of a stripper dancing. (how dare they use such good music with such shitty plot developments, ugh!)

    General Comment"Lost in the magic"- Lost in the thoughts of love
    "For the last Time"- This might be his last time in love.
    "This towns turning my rose to desire"- The people are making him think does he really love this girl. Like telling him to go on ahead and love her
    "Saturday comes slow" Most couples go out on saturday. Saturday is the day when most things occur its the best day of the week. He cants wait for it to come so he can ask the girl the main question.
    "Do you love me"- He wants her to love him
    "Or is there nothing there" '"Is there nothing there" If you noticed throughout the song he switches between the to. "OR" is a word meaning that he denies the fact that she DOESN'T love him he really wants her love. "IS" He is highly doubting her love for him. He tells a dramatic story of a guy hungry for love but he's not sure if she lovs him back so he wants to ask her on saturday " Do you love me"
