Lovers Rock
TV Girl Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Are you sick of me?
Would you like to be?
I'm tryna tell you something

Something that I already said
You like a pretty boy
With a pretty voice
Who's trying to sell you something
Something that you already have

But if you're too drunk to drive,
And the music is right
She might let you stay
But just for the night
And if she grabs for your hand
And drags you along
She might want a kiss
Before the end of the song
Because love, can burn like a cigarette
And leave you with nothing
And leave you with nothing

While the others talk
We were listening to lovers rock
In her bedroom, in her bedroom
And if you start to kiss
And the record skips
Flip it over and sit a little closer

But if you too drunk to drive
And the music is right
She might let you stay
But just for the night
And if she grabs for your hand
And drags you along
She might want a kiss
Before the end of the song
Because love, can burn like a cigarette
And leave you with nothing
And leave you with nothing
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do,
Because love,
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do,
Can burn like a cigarette
And leave you with nothing




Do-do-do-do-do-do-do,
And leave you with nothing

Overall Meaning

The song "Lovers Rock" by TV Girl is an ode to love, its ethereal highs and soul-crushing lows. The song begins with the singer questioning if the person they love has grown weary of them to the point where they want to end the relationship. The deceptive lyrics go back and forth, hinting at a lack of commitment but quickly shifting to an admission of love. The phrase "something that you already have" takes on a different meaning as the song progresses, hinting that the subject of the song is aware of their charms and doesn't have to try too hard to keep the attention of their partner.


As the song progresses, we get to the crux of the matter - the fleeting nature of love. The singer sings about how love can strip you of everything (like a cigarette) and leave you with nothing but a sense of loss. However, in the midst of all this, there are moments of purity where the two lovers truly come together. The line "While the others talk, we were listening to lovers rock in her bedroom" implies that despite what others may say or think, the two lovers are connected through their shared love of music and each other. The song is a reminder to cherish those fleeting moments when love is at its strongest because they will eventually pass.


Overall, "Lovers Rock" is an introspective look at love and the fleeting nature of passion. It takes the listener on a journey from the initial doubts that arise in a relationship to the emotional highs of being in love to the eventual sense of loss that comes from love's end. Despite the ups and downs, the song's end serves as a reminder that those fleeting moments of love are worth cherishing.
