"So Much Love" as written by and Martin Gore....
I can't lie
I can't fake
I can't act
My hands shake
There's disclosure
I must make

There is so much love in me

I can't run
I have tried
There's a thorn
In my side
There is something
I can't hide

There is so much love in me

You can forsake me
Try to break me
But you can't shake me
No
You can despise me
Demonise me
It satisfies me
So

There's a fire
In my veins
The desire
Causes pain
I will say it
Again

There is so much love in me

You can forsake me
Try to break me
But you can't shake me
No
You can despise me
Demonise me
It satisfies me
So

There is so much love in me
There is so much love in me
There is so much love in me
There is so much love in me

    General CommentTastes may differ, but this one is the coolest one coming out of Spirit.

    The instrumental and rhythmic parts just have a feeling of getting somewhere, somehow, but moving, adding to the motion as it progresses.
    As for the lyrical part, this one doesn't take much guessing or figuring out, a demonstration of romantic love albeit somewhat masochistic: she can do all to him that, besides satisfying him, it does not take the love away, as if she is, in his eyes, set upon a pedestal.

    ...just my two cents on this really good track.

    General Commentok so personally i think this could easily be an lgbt+ anthem. like all you gotta do is just replace "there is so much love in me" with "im super fucking bi" and it 100% has that meaning. martin said this was the last song he wrote for spirit and he wrote it because he noticed that all the other songs he wrote were really negative, so he wanted to write a more positive song to balance it out. this song is definitely supposed to be slightly political, about things currently being bad politically but still being able to bounce back and counter all the hate in the world with love for your fellow human being. martin also did name the continuing fight for gay & trans rights to be a point of inspiration for him while writing for this album. the lines "you can despise me / demonize me / it satisfies me" i find very relatable as a more unconventional, "unacceptable" gay person (by which i mean im a gender nonconforming weirdo, much like martin himself) in that i revel in how much cishets cant stand my existence and i take pride in how much they hate me, because they dont realize that i really dont care about their standards of normality at all. im sure that martin understands that even better than i do. anyway thats my scalding hot take on this really good track and if you think martin lee gore is a heterosexual im gonna dunk your head in a toilet gn ✌
