Lyric Of The Week

Lykke Li – “Love Out Of Lust”

The words of this song really intrigue me. Of course with any piece of writing, there can be a number of different interpretations…and personally, I like to take these lyrics further than a romantic or lustful relationship. The first two lines here are very powerful to me when I think of them as universal statements – united together, we can do so much more than every man for himself. What I like even more is dance while you can…such a great mantra!

“We will live longer than I will, we will be better than I was
We can cross rivers with our will, we can do better than I can
So dance while you can. Dance cause you must.
Love out of lust. Dance while you can.”

Lykke Li

    The vocals remind me of Hope Sandoval from “Mazzy Star” and her solo work with “the Warm Inventions”. Quaalude rock lives on…
