A Little More Love Lyrics
I wait alone in the heat
I know know that you have your way
'Til you have to go home.
"No" 's a word I can't say.
But it gets me nowhere to tell you "no"
It gets me nowhere to make you go
Will a little more love...

Sad song of desperation. If I give you a little more sex, will you feel for me and commit to me in the way I’m dreaming of. Of course, a little more of anything won’t move any needles, and only weakens her position, but it’s her only card to play, or so she perceives. Pretty sure there’s a double entendre on “happy ending” for that matter.

She is talking about a man who is dependent on drugs and alcohol.

I think it is about someone she loves so deeply divinely in love, but the other person is not ready for it, but she doesn’t leave hoping if she just loves he will eventually wake up to a fullness of love. Many people describe sex or cheating i feel its more of equality of a higher love then then shown in Hollywood movies.

My interpretation of this song is about the regret of a woman having a cheating affair. She wants to say "No" every time her lover leaves her to return home to his wife or girlfriend. She wants to seduce so strongly that he will stay with and depend on her and abandon the woman he made previous commitments. This is controversial because Newton-John was still in the "wholesome" phase of her career. I do not see any clues of abuse or kidnapping from the lyrics.

While the song clearly depicts an abusive relationship between a man who lives somewhere else and a young girl, only John Farrar, Olivia's friend and music writer, and surely Olivia herself, know what really inspired this song. It's almost like the recent news stories of young girls held captive for years inside kidnapper's homes.
