"Freelove" as written by and Martin Lee Gore....
If you've been hiding from love
If you've been hiding from love
I can understand where you're coming from
I can understand where you're coming from

If you've suffered enough
If you've suffered enough
I can understand what you're thinking of
I can see the pain that you're frightened of

And I'm only here
To bring you free love
Let's make it clear
That this is free love
No hidden catch
No strings attached
Just free love
No hidden catch
No strings attached
Just free love

I've been running like you
I've been running like you
Now you understand why I'm running scared
Now you understand why I'm running scared

I've been searching for truth
I've been searching for truth
And I haven't been getting anywhere
No, I haven't been getting anywhere

And I'm only here
To bring you free love
Let's make it clear
That this is free love
No hidden catch
No strings attached
Just free love
No hidden catch
No strings attached
Just free love

Hey, girl
You've got to take this moment
Then let it slip away
Let go of complicated feelings
Then there's no price to pay

We've been running from love
We've been running from love
And we don't know what we're doing here
No, we don't know what we're doing here

We're only here
Sharing our free love
Let's make it clear
That this is free love
No hidden catch
No strings attached
Just free love
No hidden catch
No strings attached
Just free love

    General CommentOnce you find true love you just want to give it to the person you love for free. ;)
    You don't care if he/she feels the same as you do.

    That's how I understand the term "freelove".

    General CommentCome on! This is such a great song! One of Depeche Mode's best. How come there're only 6 comments?

    General CommentEveryone can relate to this whether they admit it or not. Deep down, I guess almost everybody wants to feel the physical connection with someone else who feels the same way - even when they don't necessarily know each other ;)

    Either way, this song sounds optimistic and carefree - it may be a song about one-night stands, but then the singer actually CARES about the feeling attached with it.

    General CommentGreat song for all you people who have had "One night stands". In times when both women and men have had their troubles with their lovers...there comes a time when sometimes you need to share love with someone else "No strings attached". Or when you are afraid of love and commitment, you find that sex! its all you need! It's freelove. No compromises no bull shit.

    General CommentI see where you're coming from - but i interpret this song as a man who has had his heart broken before telling a woman who also has been hurt that he understands her pain and wants to share a no stings attached love with her

    General Commentyeah this song is about true love with no hidden motives. It is also about the search for love and once you find it, its free.

    General CommentNaw, Mode000 has that shit down.

    Let go of complicated feelings
    Then there's no price to pay

    But there's always a price

    General CommentThis song does seem to be about having a one night stand, but I like to pretend that it's just about being loved, with no hidden motives, like DjFlow said. =)

    General CommentI take it as both. One night stands, and a true relationship.

    People are hiding from love, because of all the bullshit that comes from it. Women leading you on, or men leading you on, etc. and you just want a one night stand, hook up and cuddle with someone. feel loved.

    Freelove.
