Oh ho, yeah yeah
Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na

What is love, 'cause baby I don't know
I got a funny feeling in my heart
If this is love it feels like butterflies
So tell me baby is this how it starts

I know I've never felt like this before
You're like a drug you got me wanting more
I've got to let you know, I've got to let you know

You're, you're my number one
I'd do anything for you
Catch the rain from the sky, even hold back the tide for you
Baby baby, you're, you're my number one (my number one)
With you I know I belong
I put the radio on and it's always playing our song

Na na na na na na na
Na na na na na na na na na na na

Tell me what, what have I gotta do
'Cause I wanna lay a claim on you
To make you mine for now and for all time
So tell me baby what I gotta do

I know I've never felt like this before
You're like a drug you got me wanting more
I've got to let you know I've got to let you know

You're, you're my number one (my number one)
I'd do anything for you
Catch the rain from the sky, even hold back the tide for you
Baby baby, you're, you're my number one
With you I know I belong
I put the radio on and it's always playing our song

And there ain't nothing I won't do
Oh, I'd walk on water just to be with you

Ooh
Oh, baby baby, you're, you're my number one (you're my number one)
I'd do anything for you
Catch the rain from the sky, even hold back the tide for you
Baby baby, you're (you are, you are), you're my number one (you're my number one)
With you I know I belong
I put the radio on and it's always playing our song

You're, you're my number one (you're my number one)
I'd do anything for you (oh)

    She must be head over hills in love if she wants to walk on water like Barbra!

    Basically experiencing new emotions for someone and she's questioning if it's love. Whatever it is, this person she likes is the only person she has her heart set on and she only has her eyes on them and no one else. I think it's quite cute actually, this song.

This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

Both as a standalone and as part of the DSOTS album, you can take this lyric as read. As a matter of public record, Jourgensen's drug intake was legendary even in the 1980s. By the late 90s, in his own words, he was grappling with massive addiction issues and had lost almost everything: friends, spouse, money and had nearly died more than once. "Dark Side of the Spoon" is a both funny & sad title for an album made by a musical genius who was losing the plot; and this song is a message to his fans & friends saying he knows it. It's painful to listen to so I'm glad the "Keith Richards of industrial metals" wised up and cleaned up. Well done sir.

Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.
