I only came inside to get out of the rain,
And by the looks of things she may well have done the same,
But I swear I know that face but I don’t know her name,
She’s the shape of love.

I stir my tea and throw away wet cigarettes,
I watch her shivering through her rain sodden dress,
I know her make up runs and her hair may be a mess,
But she’s the shape of love.

I don’t ever want the rain to stop,
I don’t ever want to leave this coffee shop,
I don’t ever want the clouds to part,
Cos the shape of loves the only shape that fits my heart.

I only came inside to get out of the wind,
But now i’m here let it blow yeah let it sing,
Cos i don’t know how this ones gonna end or how it may begin,
But she’s the shape of love.

I don’t ever want the sun to shine,
I don’t ever want to leave this one behind,
I don’t ever want the summer time to start,
Cos the shape of loves the only shape that fits my heart.

I don’t ever want the rain to stop,
I don’t ever want to leave this coffee shop,
I don’t ever want the clouds to part,
cos the shape of loves the only shape that fits my heart,
I don’t ever want the sun to shine,
I don’t ever want to leave this one behind,
And I don’t ever want the summer time to start,
Cos the shape of loves the only shape that fits my heart.

    My InterpretationTwo people take shelter in a coffee shop and the singer feels drawn to her. He doesn't want the moment to end.

    To me, there is a "dark" factor to this song. While singing about how their love story hasn't even started yet, he sings about he doesn't want the sun to come or for summer to start because she fits the hole in his heart. Possibly a hint of a relationship that it's good but is what you need at that time; rebounds and the like.

    Essentially, a relationship that feeds off of each other's pain, and which you can't bear to have end but which inevitably will.

    My InterpretationI think, as humans with souls, we are all connected in some way. We are separate organisms, working as one larger organism. It's how flocks of birds know how to fly in a 'V' pattern. It's how fish know how to swim in the same direction. And sometimes, this connection is what makes love, love. At least a part of it. I could obviously never explain love in its entirety. And that's what also makes love, love.

    Ever see someone, and you just know? You are attracted to that person, in multiple ways, and sensing love is the most important. That person emanates love.

    Certain of us have certain connections on a certain level. Unseen, unexplained, unpredictable.

    I love the fact that the lead singer doesn't want the moment to end. If this ever happens to you, don't let that moment slip away.

    Happy listening,
