"All that matters is love, Love, your love".........................

Am sorry I think am just a born pessimist, I was listening to "The smashing pumpkins" amazing song "Crush" and my friend said "what a wonderful Love song" I didn’t reply. The reason for that is simple Crush = Lust not love period, plus the lyrics reads like this, "You wrap your arms around me"- why is she wrapping her arms around him, if he’s the one apparently highly in love?. "Just Taste the drink that she servers” hummm so he feels a bit forced to accept the only think available?. "All that matters is love, Love, your love"- so it means the affection he feels towards her is lacking love, hence the phrase "your love" he understands fully that her love is true. "And I wonder if it matters to me, love comes in colors I can’t deny, all that shimmers is love, love, your love"- when a person stops and wonders if what they got themselves into isn’t important or doesn’t matter then clearly it isn’t love……. However!!! This song is one of the greatest songs even written, it explains to perfection the state in which humans sometimes get confused about love, we wonder is this love? Or simply, I like this person and what the heck, I’ll give it a go? I think this song is about a woman who’s in love with a gentleman, but she loves him more then he will ever love her. He’s in a toxic relationship, one that is hard to cut but feels completely empty. He can feel the immense love showed by her and feels attached to the feeling itself and not her, and definitely not true love its more of a CRUSH, he wants her to understand that even though he doesn’t love her the same way she does, hes still with her and the only thing true to him is Her love.

If music be the food of love, play on.
-William Shakespeare

I have heard this song a million times and have never thought of it like this. Probably because I'm young which makes me undeniably naive lol, but I love hearing your perspective on it.
