For Love
Lush Lyrics


Pretty little girl, she shines
Knowing she is young, she smiles
Happy just to be a prize
Happy just to see his smile

Silly little girl, she tries
Thinking she is good, and wise
Doesn't recognise the lies
Pouring from her lips, she sighs:

This is so real,
It's what I feel,
I look in your eyes and lose myself

Silly little girl denies
Every understanding why
Her face is full of sad surprise
Every time she hears him cry:

What do you feel
When you're with me?
I look in your eyes and see myself

But there's no connection,
Just his own reflection
Isn't this the way you wanted me?
(what do you mean?)
In love with you
(what do I feel?)
Do anything
(what do you mean?)
For you

She looked in his eyes to lose herself

And when it falls apart, she cries
Doesn't think to look inside
She just covers up her eyes
Doesn't see her own disguise

And though she feels this sorrow,
It will fade tomorrow
She'll pretend that this was really love
(what do you mean?)
She'll make their fall
(what did I feel?)
Seem beautiful
(what do you mean?)
She won't remember this at all
(what do you mean?)
She won't recall
(what did I feel?)
The truth at all
(what do you mean?)
She wants to fall
(what did I feel?)
Again
(what do you mean?)

Love the bass guitar, and the depressed jingly, jangly guitar sound that is similar in the Pixies, The Cure and Bauhaus. Such a distinct hallmark of the late 80's early 90's.

Denise Miller

Love this bad, this sound. So into this music in late 80's early 90's - when college radio in Cleveland really ruled! And the mix tapes - oh man - right off the radio onto the cassette!

Jingly jangly.....? I'm going to use that

Fender Bass

Altough new bass player Phil King appears in the video, it was actually played by original bass player Steve Rippon. Phil said this video was the very first thing he ever did with Lush, and he didn't know any of their songs yet. He was faking the bass line in this video because he had no clue how to really play it. But he learned fast.

@starsandspirals. Didn't know the Cocteau Twins had a connection. I know one time I went from listening to this, right to the Cocteau Twins, not knowing the connection.

ken gruz

Yes. When I listen to the guitar breaks- jingly, jangly, or clangy- I immediately hear The Sisters Of Mercy on their album: "First, Last, and Always." This cut of Lush
"For Love" especially has a guitar break very much in common in terms of texture, chord changes, and harmonics with the Sisters of Mercy from that period (as do many of theirs.) Like a lot of things, there had to have been cross-band influence of what each was producing and listening to. It's a beautiful and very influential sound. For those possibly unfamiliar, treat yourself to the entire S.O.M. album I'm referring to available in whole here on the tube. And I'm in no way saying one band copied another, just to say there was a "sound" going around during that period, a beautiful, irresistible style that guitarists no doubt heard and were influenced by and which made their way into their compositions.
