The Song Takes On a Whole New Meaning

To get the entire gist of this story, please read the following lyrics from one of the coolest women-fronted bands ever, Heart:

"It was a rainy night
When he came into sight,
Standing by the road,
No umbrella, no coat.
So I pulled up alongside
And I offered him a ride.
He accepted with a smile,
So we drove for a while.
I didnt ask him his name,
This lonely boy in the rain.
Fate, tell me its right,
Is this love at first sight?
Please dont make it wrong,
Just stay for the night.

All I wanna do is make love to you
Say you will
You want me too
All I wanna do is make love to you
Ive got lovin arms to hold on to

So we found this hotel,
It was a place I knew well
We made magic that night.
Oh, he did everything right
He brought the woman out of me,
So many times, easily
And in the morning when he woke all
I left him was a note
I told him
I am the flower you are the seed
We walked in the garden
We planted a tree
Dont try to find me,
Please dont you dare
Just live in my memory,
Youll always be there

All I wanna do is make love to you
One night of love was all we knew
All I wanna do is make love to you
Ive got lovin arms to hold on to

Oh, oooh, we made love
Love like strangers
All night long
We made love

Then it happened one day,
We came round the same way
You can imagine his surprise
When he saw his own eyes
I said please, please understand
Im in love with another man
And what he couldnt give me
Was the one little thing that you can

All I wanna do is make love to you
One night of love was all we knew
All I wanna do is make love to you
Say you will, you want me too"

 

Now, re-read this following lyrics:

"So we found this hotel,
It was a place I knew well"

A place she knew well?!?!  Just how often is she going there?!  And with how many different men?!  

Now, re-read the following lyrics:

"I'm in love with another man
And what he couldnt give me
Was the one little thing that you can"

The one thing the man she was in love with couldn't give her was the baby she had with the stranger.  So, because her current love is shooting blanks, she thinks she can go around sleeping with strange men, only to leave before the men wake up?!

This woman is a crazy *****.

I'm sure you have morals, TOCIC. Thinking too much about these things usually hurts my head, too, but I just couldn't resist.<br />
<br />
Speechless, I'm sure after her current lover found out about the love child she had with the hitchhiker, she's probably not having sex anymore.

Yes, but she's telling the stranger that her current lover couldn't give her the one thing that the stranger had. Hence, the child.<br />
<br />
This whole story isn't really much of a love story. It's kind of like a ****-soap opera.

seedy motel...yeah. EWW...you don't want to know my visual for that...<br />
I remember the video. The song-it has a great hook to it. Heart-Rock Royalty.

It's really unbelievable. And sad.<br />
<br />
I remember singing this when it first came out. Thank goodness I didn't know what it meant then!! LOL

She's definitely not in love with the stranger. But she's not having sex OR he's shooting blanks with the current love. And she is very familiar with this seedy hotel. <br />

Hmmm....

Nancy Wilson is my favorite. Especially since now I'll always think Ann Wilson is a ***** because of those lyrics. LOL

i love heart dont you---?
