Love Her Madly Lyrics

Don't ya love her madly
Don't ya need her badly
Don't ya love her ways
Tell me what you say

Don't ya love her madly
Wanna be her daddy
Don't ya love her face
Don't ya love her as she's walkin' out the door
Like she did one thousand...

    First of all, this is Robby Kreiger's song, not Jim Morrison's poetry. I think it is a reflection of human nature to want something more, once it is gone and unavailable.

    Actually Robby Kreiger wrote this song, not Jim.

    I think he is reminding himself not to get carried away by the love that leaves him. The lesson that he learned from a thousand walk outs. All people have felt the wings of love carry them away. But when that love leaves us in that sky, thats when we truly fall...(in love). So the love reminds us not to fall too hard a thousand times. "Don't" you love her madly. Don't do it. He learned. ..:)

    It might not have been the intended meaning, but "don't you love her as she's walking out the door" could easily mean that he neglects showing love, and doesn't really feel love for her until she gets fed up and walks out, and in that moment he [once again] feels strong love for her.

    Morrison didn't even write the song Newe!

    Nothing wrong with the fist anonymous point of view. Newe is a pretentious twat who needs a good fuck

    yeah, don't you love her
    Don't you love her as she's walkin' out the door
    like she did 1000 times before

    The beginning to the progressive drama that is Jim's poetry in this song is a base. while we still get a form of emotions, the relationship between the boyfriend and girlfriend start off as more than just a fling but an infinite love between that of two people who have known each other for a good length of time and have had an off and on relationship, but always had they loved each other.

    The most likely indication to the songs mystery would be jims obvious infatuation with Pamala. Through Jim's early and later life he was incessed with the love of her.
    he loved her madly
    needed her badly
    but most importantly loved her ways.

    but as personalized as some of Jim's writing has been, this I believe is a more sinister but still oddly optimistic view on love in general. By taking on the most stereotypical story on love.

    All your love is gone
    So sing a lonely song
    Of a deep blue dream
    Seven horses seem to be on the mark

    and of course the pain anyone feels when they feel pangs of unreturned, or forbidden love. Jim leaves no mistake that this is true love, or in other familiar terms somebody's "cosmic mate", not only because of the long emotional time the two of them had spent together but because of
    artistic value of his poetry, this one girl, is any and all this man can think about. and o how it torments his mind.

    All your love
    All your love
    All your love

    Well, don't ya love her madly
    Don't ya love her madly
    Don't ya love her madly

    while I have other more controversial views on the songs more in depth meaning I will not post them due to the possible unlikelihood that I am incorrect.

    I believe Jim wants all MEN to see women they way HE sees it.
