For Love Lyrics

Artist: Lush
Album: Spooky

(Berenyi)

Pretty little girl, she shines
Knowing she is young, she smiles
Happy just to be a prize
Happy just to see his smile

Silly little girl, she tries
Thinking she is good, and wise
Doesn't recognise the lies
Pouring from her lips, she sighs:

This is so real,
It's what I feel,
I look in your eyes and lose myself

Silly little girl denies
Every understanding why
Her face is full of sad surprise
Every time she hears him cry:

What do you feel
When you're with me?
I look in your eyes and see myself

But there's no connection,
Just his own reflection
Isn't this the way you wanted me?
(what do you mean?)
In love with you
(what do I feel?)
Do anything
(what do you mean?)
For you

She looked in his eyes to lose herself

And when it falls apart, she cries
Doesn't think to look inside
She just covers up her eyes
Doesn't see her own disguise

And though she feels this sorrow,
It will fade tomorrow
She'll pretend that this was really love
(what do you mean?)
She'll make their fall
(what did I feel?)
Seem beautiful
(what do you mean?)
She won't remember this at all
(what do you mean?)
She won't recall
(what did I feel?)
The truth at all
(what do you mean?)
She wants to fall
(what did I feel?)
Again
(what do you mean?)

Rape IMO.

Not rape. Nosir.

It is about a girl that is trapped by her own inability to be her own person. She is co-dependent on the "boy" (and the next one and the next one after that) to whom she merely reflects. And instead of growing and becoming her own person she hides the truth from herself regarding her codependency, calls it a beautiful romantic fall, and then goes through it all over again.
