This isn't an equal fight
Somebody must lose tonight
It isn't a matter of opinion
I know you been there before
One touch and you hit the floor
It isn't a matter of opinion

And know you remember how it felt
Oh, when love hits you way beneath the belt

The gloves are off
The gloves are off
When you're in love
When you're in love
The gloves are off
The gloves are off
Get off the ropes
Get off the ropes
The gloves are off
When you're in love
It's a blow right to your head

Nobody knows more than you
One look and he's cut right through
You've never been left down of the action
It's such a one-sided fight
Who cares about wrong or right
It's simply a matter of attraction

And know I remember how it felt
Oh, when love hits you way beneath the belt

The gloves are off
The gloves are off
When you're in love
When you're in love
The gloves are off
The gloves are off
Get off the ropes
Get off the ropes
The gloves are off

Oh, and who cares
If I don't sleep tonight
Nothing is simpler than this
It's black and white
And I know that
Love is the fight I'll always fight
You're on the roads
Get off the ropes
The gloves are off

The gloves are off
The gloves are off
When you're in love
When you're in love
The gloves are off
The gloves are off
Get off the ropes
Get off the ropes
The gloves are off

Oh, and who cares
If I don't sleep tonight
And noone can tell me I'm not right

    My InterpretationOkay, I could be really wrong about this but I think the song is about the struggle for gay rights. Lines like "I know that love is the fight I'll always fight" and "No-one can tell me I'm not right" and the whole song suggests people fighting for rights.
