I Wanna Make Love
Meja Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Livin'all alone in a big apartment
I got cash, I'm independent
But who am I?
And where's the magic?
I've asked all the questions
But I never find the answer
Not until I'm free, I can't stand it
I wanna make love to you
I'm tired of being told
(of) what to think or say or do
I wanna make love to you
I'm tired of it all
I just want someone to hold

Lovin' is a game in the year 2000
We've been told by the 90's trailers
You visit me, I visit you
In the future
We don't live together
All I gotta do is to read the paper
The monopoly of views, I can't stand it

I wanna make love to you
I'm tired of being told
(of) what to think or say or do
I wanna make love to you




I'm tired of it all
I just want someone to hold

Meja sings of the desire to make love and be with someone without the constant pressure of being told what to think, say, or do.

The artist describes how love has become a "game" that is advertised in trailers and that relationships are predicated on visitation. Additionally, the monopoly of views in the media also disheartens the singer.


Overall, "I Wanna Make Love" is an insightful commentary on the societal pressures of independence and the yearning for intimate human connections.

Livin'all alone in a big apartment
Living alone in a large apartment


I got cash, I'm independent
I have money and don't rely on anyone else


But who am I?
I am questioning my identity


And where's the magic?
I am wondering where the excitement and wonder is in my life


I've asked all the questions
I have searched for answers to my questions


But I never find the answer
But I have yet to find the answers I seek

I cannot tolerate this until I am free from my current situation

I'm tired of it all
I am tired of everything

Living apart in relationships may become the norm


All I gotta do is to read the paper
All it takes is reading the news to see the limited perspectives represented


The monopoly of views, I can't stand it
I cannot tolerate the dominance of certain views in society
