"Lovelife" as written by and Emma Victoria Jane Anderson....
You are the one
In your concrete arms I adore you
Dirty and dear
Block out the sun
In your twists and turns I invade
You show me no fear

We blow around like tiny leaves in a big storm
Finding there's nothing left to breathe or to keep warm
You ebb and flow and your rhythm beats my head
Leave me alone while you swallow up your dead

You are the one
You cradle me and kill
Caressing my face

Leave me undone
You suffocate and have me
This is the place

Every door conceals a dream and a nightmare
Nothing is ever really pure in the stale air

And when it's dark everything becomes more clear
Lie in the park when I want to have you near

You are the one
In your concrete arms I adore you
Dusty and dear
Block out the sun
In your twists and turns I invade
You show me no fear

Left it unsung
I shall leave but I'll return
Poison my lungs, my blood is full of lead
Things unsaid
My love for you still burns

    General CommentYeah, you're right, it is.

    To me it's about 2 lovers, loving each other desperately, to a violent extent. To the edge, I guess.

    General CommentThis is probably among the creepiest songs ever. Dreamy (in my opinion, it's the very definition of Dream Pop), uplifting music, terribly pained lyrics about two lovers in a really turbulent relationship ("every door conceals a dream and a nightmare") in which love and hate walk together, but somehow the love is stronger ("my love for you still burns"). Even after death, like the above guys said.

    Very dismal song. I don't even play it that often.

    General Commentthis is the first lush song i ever heard back in 1994 and its still by far my favorite. the guitars flow and Mikki's voice puts me in a trance. i miss this band.
    i agree with Stroaters....these two lovers {weather it was mikki and emma hypotheticaly} loved each other with so much that {im assuming} that one passes and the love will always continue...like Mikki says at the end "left it unsung, i shall leave but i'll return" those darn shoegazers..she is probably talking about a puppy or something...LOL
