Never Never Love by Simply Red (meaning?)


Recommended Posts

Never Never Love by Simply Red. Honestly WTF?

"Never Never Love"

So now we've got our independence

What are we gonna do with it?

Learning to play different games

Already using different names

Cause now our love bears no resemblance

To what we had before

When our love was good it was all that we saw

When our love was good it blinded us before

This real revolution baby

Where you're not below me anymore

Never never love can never be enough

Never be enough, just ain't good enough

Never never love can never be enough

Never be enough, oh no

So now we've got our independence

What are we gonna do with it?

Building the houses, claiming back the land

Burning the bridges, cleaning up your hands

Cause now our love bears no resemblance

To what we had before

Now our love has something for the future

Now our love will grow the seeds to sow this real revolution

This good revolution baby

Where you're not below me anymore

Really? To me it sorta seems like the singer is living in a country that has had a revolution and it somehow changed everything; including his relationship with his partner. e.g.'You're not below me anymore'. Did the chicks finally take over?

:coolio:

It seems to me just like a normal love (or hate) song, but I remember he´s a "Europeist", he insisted on that in the late 80s when he released the album with the stars, each star being a European Country. And he likes to talk about that whenever he can, so maybe he´s reffering to the European Union and its countries... :P

Can't edit now , but another thought was that it about a couple that has divorced or seperated and are getting on with their lives , and yet still love each other due to a new respect they have for each other in this arrangement , as they're earlier love was a bit blind ... ?!?! :P Nah ! I still like edna's as it's deeper .

I think he wrote a love/unlove song that is meant to be understood by him and that´s all... I mentioned his "Europeism" because I´ve been in some press conference where he insisted on that point, and how that would be said in his songs and etc...
