Love Will Save Your Soul
Grouplove Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Walking down the street
Thinking your so bold
So bold!

See your mom and dad and they're so cold
So cold!

Love will save your soul
I'm feeling so alone and growing old
Love will make no sense
But lose control
Lost my train of thought and now control

Love will always save your soul
I'm feeling so alone and growing old
Love, love, love,
Yeah love, love, love

?
Teachers cracking rules and now the law
Love will save your soul
Feeling so alone and growing old
Love, love, love
Yeah, love, love, love

Love will always save your soul
Your soul
Your soul

Love will save your soul
Love will save your soul

Love will always save your soul
Love will always save your soul

Love will save your soul
Love will save your soul

Love will always save your soul
Love will always save your soul





Love will save your soul
Love will save your soul

Overall Meaning

The opening line of Grouplove's song Love Will Save Your Soul is about the singer observing someone on the street who seems very confident and self-assured, but they are walking with a cold and distant demeanor because they are likely struggling with something internally. This is evident when the singer sees the character's parents, who are also cold and distant towards them, suggesting that they may be experiencing difficulty in their relationships. However, the chorus argues that love, despite how nebulous and confusing it may seem, has the power to heal and save this person's soul. This sentiment is repeated throughout the song and serves as a reminder that no matter how alone and lost one may feel, love always has the power to bring meaning and happiness into their life.


The verses of the song also hint at a system that has failed the person being described. The lyrics suggest that this individual may have experienced abuse from a teacher, who is "cracking rules," and now the law. This echoes a larger issue of systemic injustice and corruption, and the message seems to be that despite the wrongs that have been done to them, love can still provide a way out. The message of the song may seem overly simplistic, but it is a universal truth that aptly captures the positive impact of love on the human spirit.
