Strangelove Lyrics

on Amazon Music

There'll be times
When my crimes
Will seem almost unforgivable
I give in to sin
Because you have to make this life livable

But when you think I've had enough
From your sea of love
I'll take more than another river full
Yes, and I'll...

    The masterpiece of DM, haunting, mystical, amazing in its depth and speaking for itself. As always it has many layers, depending on your interests - one meaning is about earthy love, and another - about heavenly one. In the second case "I give in", "preach", "sin", etc., should be taken rather literally, because it is not a dialog with a girlfriend anymore, or human at all, but with a night sky and God. About higher love, which is eternal, strange, wide like Milky Way river and painful (when you stray, completely give in to sin and temporary out of reach for your best friend).

    The guy, even though he's in a relationship with this girl, he is going to inevitably cheat on her over and over again. But he'll always come back to satisfy her. She just needs to get used to this...he's notifying her maybe at the start of the relationship? I would hope? ;) Kinda sad though.
