There are so many amazing singers who confessed their true feelings through music and lyrics. Love is the subject we mostly talk about. Love is something so much beyond than the borders and typical idea of the word love. “I need you, you are my sunshine” doesn’t always means he or she truly loves you and “remember? I’m still not talking to you” doesn’t mean that he/she doesn’t love you enough. There are millions ways to confess your love feelings but those lines become deep when it’s told through good music. When it comes to love song, I expect a lot from its lyrics.
Here are some of my handpicked love lyrics from my favorite songs that I felt so romantic.
(Click the name of the songs to directly listen on YouTube)
“When I create you’re my muse,
The kind of smile that makes the news“Intentions – Justin Bieber
“Lost in your current like a priceless wine“Willow – Taylor swift
“Painting all my dreams the color of your smile
When I find you it will be alright”Gotta find you-Joe jonas
“With the wings of Icarus you gave me (Uh),
Not towards the sun but towards you,Boy with love- BTS
Let me fly”
This line references the Greek myth of Icarus, son of the acclaimed architect Daedalus. They both were imprisoned by a King to keep a secret. Daedalus built wings of feather made using wax for him and his son to escape with. Daedalus warns Icarus to not fly too close to the sun, but his son does out of excitement. As a result, his wings melt off and he falls into the sea and dies.
By referring to this myth, the lyric writer contrast his fate by saying that he’ll use these wings to reach his lover instead of following any mere temptation.
“Take my hands nowEuphoria – Jungkook
You are the cause of my euphoria (oh yeah, euphoria)
When I’m with you, I’m in utopia”
Euphoria is a feeling of intense happiness and excitement. Utopia is an imaginary place, more like a paradise or heaven, where everything is perfect. Basically he is saying that she is the cause of this unfamiliar magical feeling where only pure happiness is surrounded by him.
“I knew from the first time, I’d stay for a long time causeI like me better – Lauv
I like me better when I’m with you“
“I get so lost inside your eyesAdore you-Harry Styles
Would you believe it?“
“The universe has moved for us,Serendipity-Jimin
Without missing a single thing,
Our happiness was meant to be,
Cuz you love me, and I love you“
The occurrence of a Solar eclipse is very rare but when the moon perfectly covers the sun, it’s even rarer. Thus by making a reference to this extraordinary natural phenomenon, the narrator is emphasizing how much he believes that they were meant to be together.
This is the impact true love has over two souls. It’s almost as if the stars itself are touched by the genuine love that bonds these individuals. Real happiness and love cannot be held in human hands. It’s almost like a destiny of nature.
“I can show you the worldA whole new world – Mena massoud, Naomi scott
Shining, shimmering, splendid
Tell me, princess, now when did
You last let your heart decide?”
“I dream while looking at you“Mikrokosmos-BTS
“If you push me, I’ll fall, just raise me up againLove maze– BTS
Even if I pull, you don’t have to come“
The words of a perfect gentleman. If we truly love someone, no matter what happens, we always find a way to get back to them. In the same way, If we find ourself in a toxic relationship and decides to break up, he or she should respect your decision instead of threatening , blackmailing or abusing you to stay. There is a saying that goes like – a wise man knows when to let go. The key to a perfect relationship is understanding, supporting and lending hands to each other.
“Let my feet rip apart with woundsRun – BTS
At least I can smile when I see you“
“But you’ll never be alone,Dusk till dawn – Zyan and sia
I’ll be with you from dusk till dawn,
I’ll be with you from dusk till dawn,
Baby, I’m right here”
“I wanted to be the tender waves
But why didn’t I know you were the sea?“Best of me – BTS
This is my absolute favorite song from BTS. The meaning is that – I’ve always wanted to a warm tender wave to comfort you but now I’ve realized that your existence is much bigger than me and who is also creating me.
“Even when we go through changesWay back home – Shaun
Even when we’re old
Remember that I told you
I’ll find my way back home”
“For as long as I liveNever not – Lauv
And as long as I love
I will never not think about you”
“Everybody’s tryna be a billionaireSomebody to you – The vamps
But every time I look at you, I just don’t care
Cause all I wanna be, yeah, all I ever wanna be, yeah, yeah
Is somebody to you“
This song is so nostalgic and beautiful!! I recently discovered this band – the vamps and feel in love with their music right away.
“I might never be the hands you put your heart in,Perfect – One Direction
Or the arms that hold you any time you want them,
But that don’t mean that we can’t live here in the moment,
Cause I can be the one you love from time to time”
“It’s comfortable even as you say nothing,
Everywhere will be my home if you are in there”Home – BTS
After a tiring and exhausted day, the first thing that comes to our mind is “when will I go home!?” Home is not just a mere place or building, it’s where our heart resides.
The whole lyrics of this song is wholesome if you listen to it. The song talks about how he achieved everything as an singer when he stepped out of the door and at the same time how much he misses her after that. At last he concludes that no luxury or money that he achieved can bring him the comfort, love and healing that he gets from her. Thus the next lines ” I’ll tell you then/
It’s been a while, Mi Casa / With you I just feel rich”. (BTS used the beautiful way of Spanish people saying mi casa, meaning ‘my home’)
“Don’t you dare let our best memories bring you sorrow”Lost stars-Adam Levine
“I love you and that’s all I really know
I talked to your dad, go pick out a white dressLove story – Taylor swift
It’s a love story, baby, just say, Yes“
Here comes my most favorite lines among all:
“You gave me the best of meMagic shop-BTS
So you’ll give you the best of you
You’ll find it, the galaxy inside you”
He is proudly confessing that she found the best in himself during all his hard times, when no one else believed he was worthy.
The last two lines is the most powerful and comforting line that anyone can say to their loved ones. What I love about this line is that it’s not “so I’ll give you the best of you”. That would have turned like a deal or something like you gave me, so I’ll give you. He is not giving any fake promises like he would be there for her till the end or any heroic lines like he will save her from any misery.
Instead he says she has found the best in himself and thus she is capable of finding the best in her. A strong woman is someone who won’t rely on anyone but herself. He wants to give her the courage, a clear idea that only she can do the best. It shows how much he thinks high of her. What more does a woman needs when a man trusts and values her wholeheartedly?
Is there a way word to express one’s love more than the word ‘love’? What is your favorite love lyrics? Tell me in the comments below.
