Smashing Pumpkins: Love Meaning
she shimmy shakes, the jimmy jakes of consequence
born of the airs and dues house, my airs of madness do declare
that it's ok, it's love
it's what you wanted to see, it's who you wanted to be

This song hits me deep and this is what I get from it.
He says to his mistakes of cowardice meaning that this song is written towards his experience with love the fear, pain, and danger of leaving when he had the chance but he kept on going seeing where it would take him. She shimmy shakes Jimmy Jakes of consequence because he actions will ultimately affect their love and him and her; dealing with the consequence of love. Not sure what born of the air and dues mean but his airs of madness do declare that what she is doing is ok because it is love like the thorns of a rose he is madly in love with her.
"it's what you wanted to see, it's who you wanted to be
for what you needed to need, she'll make it up
love, it's who you know"
Meaning it's what he wanted to see and who he wanted to be for what he needed to need she makes it up, telling him what he wants to hear to get him through and keep this love.
Machine gun blues, he is constantly taking shots from her. Her rush is so steel . He is lost inside her vision of what he thinks she wants from him and he has his own visions of how he sees the relationship but both are different and everything is okay because he still has her and that love is persistent.
When he lost his mind meaning he went head over heals in love with her he knew that he was in for the long run to work things out. Can he look up to her as she looks down on him, saying that she treats him like crap or cheats on him making him feel small but at the same time he still loves her and she is his everything. Can he feel into her as she felt into him? Does he mean anything to her as how much she meant to him.
"I can't help what you see, i can't help but to be
for what i needed to need, she'll make it
love, it's who you know "
He can't force her to see who he really is or force someone to love you. he can't change himself to be somebody he isn't and somebody he can't be, she will make it; and that leaves that he has left the relationship. Love is about who you know and how both people treat each other and no matter how much you love someone if they don't feel the same about you or share that passion it will never be what it needs to be and you can never be who you want to be, it's love, love it's who you know. And when you know someone and both people equally love each other the love will solve the simple problems that he encountered and stalled in his relationship of love. Great song simple meaning I just found out my girlfriend cheated on me and while listening to this song every verse made sense because it was exactly how I was feeling.
