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
