Once in a lifetime, you find that power
To break out and run from the devil's deep clutch.
All that you need, it's the finest hour,
Is to believe in the magic touch.
A thief in the night,
Love steals you far away.
A thief in the night,
Love takes your breath away.
Can't believe it, like no other.
Love is a gift and to take you so much,
You need the blue night to discover
Only true lovers have the magic touch.
Once in a lifetime, you find that faith,
When you're under the spell and it takes control.
Everything 'round you just falls in place,
And all that you touch seems to turn to gold.
A thief in the night,
Love steals you far away.
A thief in the night,
Love takes your breath away.
Can't believe it, like no other.
Love is a gift and to take you so much,
You need the blue night to discover
Only true lovers have the magic touch.
Magic, magic.
Magic, magic, magic, magic.
Once in a lifetime, you find that power
So break out and run from the devil's deep clutch.
All that you need, it's the finest hour,
Is to believe in the magic touch.
It's magic. It's magic.
Magic, magic, magic.
Can't believe it, like no other.
Love is a gift and to take you so much,
You need the blue night to discover
Only true lovers have the magic touch.

Can't believe it, like no other.
Love is a gift and to take you so much,
You need the blue night to discover
Only true lovers have the magic touch.

It's magic. It's magic.
It's magic.
It's magic. It's magic.
It's magic.
It's magic. It's magic.
It's magic.
It's magic. It's magic.
It's magic.

    My Interpretation

    Love the song and the message, shame my mother hated it for the same reason (psychotic level christian... religion's healthy... to a point).

    Basic point being that the feeling of true love's a deeply touching thing, that can make it feel like nothing can possibly go wrong when togeather; as long as we're togeather, nothing can break our joy type dealie.

    Considering the healing power of love, for example a loved one sitting near one in a coma helping them make it through safely, or other cases similar, one really could state it's almost a magical connection in some ways.

    Of course, one could also make the argument that he's trying to state that the concept of religion and 'god' is nothing more than the search to be loved unconditionally.

    That or it's about god loving yeu. Hard to say really, so many ways to take such vagueities.

    Still a good song regardless! ^^

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,
