"Love Is Strong" as written by and Mick Jagger Keith Richards....
Your love is strong and you're so sweet
You make me hard, you make me weak
Love is strong and you're so sweet
And someday babe, we got to meet

A glimpse of you was all it took
A stranger's glance, it got me hooked
And I followed you across the stars
I looked for you in seedy bars

What are you scared of, baby?
It's more than just a dream
I need some time
We make a beautiful team, a beautiful team

Well, love is strong and you're so sweet (you're so sweet)
And someday babe, we got to meet (got to meet)
Just anywhere out in the park
Out on the street and in the dark

I followed you through swirling seas
Down darkened woods with silent trees
Your love is strong and you're so sweet (you're so sweet)
You make me hard, you make me weak

What are you scared of, baby?
It's more than just a dream
I need some time
We make a beautiful team, beautiful

I wait for you until the dawn
My mind is ripped, my heart is torn
Your love is strong and you're so sweet
Your love is bitter and taken neat

Love is strong, yeah (you're so sweet)
(Got to meet) Love is strong, oh
(You're so sweet) you're so sweet, yeah
(Got to meet) strong
(You're so sweet) got to meet, got to meet
(You're so sweet)
(You're so sweet)
(Got to meet)
(You're so sweet)

    General CommentHe's definitely stalking her &, judging by the last verse, it's all going to end in tears. "My mind is ripped, my heart is torn" - nobody wants somebody in that state hanging around them in darkened woods.

    General CommentA stalker song, from the stalkers POV. He doesn't understand why she is afraid of him ("What are you scared of baby") because he thinks his actions are normal and justified. He objectifies woman by denying their autonomy ("I followed you") and he feels he has a right to damage them ("Your love is bitter its taken neat"). He has no concern for his object's feelings or experiences, only his sick goals are important.

    General CommentIt's about meeting your soul mate and knowing it as soon as you met each other...but for some reason or another both of you ran away from each other to other partners that were not very suited for each other.
