Overall Meaning

In Linda Ronstadt's song "Just One Look," the lyrics describe the feeling of falling in love at first sight. The opening lines, "Just one look and I fell so hard in love with you," convey the intense emotional impact that meeting someone special can have. The singer goes on to explain how the experience of being loved feels, and how that love has changed her life: "I found out how good it feels to have your love."


As the song progresses, the lyrics become more intense and focused on the singer's desire to be with the person she has fallen in love with. She pleads with them to be hers forever, saying "Say you will, will be mine forever and always" and makes a promise to pursue their love relentlessly, saying "Ah but I'm gonna keep on scheming till I make you, make you my own."


Ultimately, the song is about the transformative power of love and the overwhelming desire to be with the person who has captured your heart. The catchy refrain of "Just one look" underscores the idea that love can happen suddenly, unexpectedly, and with just a glance.
