L-O-V-E
Nat King Cole Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

L is for the way you look at me
O is for the only one I see
V is very, very extraordinary
E is even more than anyone that you adore can

Love is all that I can give to you
Love is more than just a game for two
Two in love can make it
Take my heart and please don't break it
Love was made for me and you

L is for the way you look at me
O is for the only one I see
V is very, very extraordinary
E is even more than anyone that you adore can

Love is all that I can give to you
Love is more than just a game for two
Two in love can make it
Take my heart and please don't break it
Love was made for me and you
Love was made for me and you
Love was made for me and you

Overall Meaning

Nat King Cole's iconic song "L-O-V-E" celebrates the beauty and power of love. The song is a romantic ballad that includes an upbeat and cheerful melody that is still often played today at weddings, Valentine's Day, and other romantic occasions. The song's simple structure and touching lyrics have made it a classic of the romantic music genre.


At its core, "L-O-V-E" is a song about the immense joy that comes with finding true love. The lyrics cleverly use the letters of the word "love" to spell out different aspects of the emotion. "L" stands for the way that the person you love looks at you, "O" represents the sense that they are the only one you see, "V" stands for the extraordinary nature of the connection, and "E" represents the deep feeling of adoration that you experience.


The song also underscores the importance of cherishing the love that you share with another person. The lyrics encourage listeners to take care of the heart of the person they love and not to take their love for granted. The final line of the song - "love was made for me and you" - encapsulates the idea that love is a fundamental human experience that is meant to be shared.

Can we appreciate the fact that Nat sang this while dying from terminal lung cancer. If that doesn’t prove that singers back then had 10x the talent then idk what does.
