You gotta know, I'm feeling love
Made of gold, I never loved her
Another one, another you
It's gotta be love I said it

You gotta know, I'm feeling love
You gotta know, I'm feeling love

You gotta know, I'm feeling love
Made of gold, I never loved her
Another one, another you
It's gotta be love I said it

I might as well be in a garden
I said, ah a smell in the air is a dripping rose (you could be the one for me)
Another soul to meet my void then
Of anything bare that's made of gold

A physical kiss is nothing without it
And you close your eyes to see what it's done
The body that lies is built up on looking
'Cause all that remains before it's begun

You gotta know, I'm feeling love
Made of gold, I never loved her
Another one, another you
It's gotta be love, I said it

You gotta know, I'm feeling love
Made of gold, I never loved her
Another one, another you
It's gotta be love, I said it

A heart will swell before it's hardened
With the flick of the hair, it can make you old
Another hole to dig my soul in
I'll leave anything bare that keeps me soul

A physical kiss is nothing without it
And you close your eyes to see what it's done
The body that lies is built up on looking
'Cause all that remains before it's begun

You gotta know, I'm feeling love
Made of gold, I never loved her
Another one, another you
It's gotta be love, I said it

You gotta know, I'm feeling love
Made of gold, I never loved her
Another one, another you
It's gotta be love, I said it

You gotta know, I'm feeling love
Made of gold, I never loved her
Another one, another you
It's gotta be love, I said it

    General CommentThere’s an episode of Song Exploder, a really good podcast, in which Nick talks explicitly about the making of this song and the lyrics, which are indeed about good old fashioned monogamous love. There’s a comment above that says they feel this song and its accompanying video are “too sexy” to be about the kind of love he describes in the podcast, and I can see why someone might feel that way, but after having been married for twelve years and settling into contented routine over nonstop raw passion, I can safely say there are plenty of those sexy feelings all the time! They just manifest differently: when you’re young you think about physical sex a lot and how that expresses your passions, but as you get older the two of you find outlets for that in the simplest and seemingly most innocent of actions. That’s why “a physical kiss is nothing without it”; without love physical affection is almost meaningless once you’ve found that soul to fill the void. It’s nice, but real love is nicer, and it’s honestly kind of hard to describe in tangible ways, which is why “you close your eyes to see what it’s done”—that’s really the only way to understand it. I think some of the writing in this song is a little juvenile to be honest, but the sentiment described is so rarely referenced in pop music anymore that it really makes for a refreshing change. Also the beat THUMPS.
