Origin of Love - new song

Recommended Posts

I guess it will become my favourite Mika songs ever.:blush-anim-cl:

 

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3OGyB99VL-0

 

and the song is dedicated to...:wub2:

[YOUTUBE]rjsuznSFJFs&feature=plcp[/YOUTUBE]

 

 

The music is playful yet complex and I do believe it will be seen as one of the best pop tracks of this decade. I love how simple, yet witty and meaningful the lyrics are, daring to touch a subject that rarely gets into pop songs, especially in such clever way.

 

I tend to dislike comparing songs to each other but for me, the first songs that come to my mind in relation to TOOL is 'All You Need is Love' in the sound of the chorus and 'Supreme' by Robbie in its use of grotesque lyrics. And there is also some early Erasure and Yazoo sound I can hear , making it a perfect, uplifting pop record with the extra 'Latin' chant thrown in to take addiction to a spiritual level. :teehee:

It's perfect :swoon:

 

I can't wait to hear the album version, as well as some orchestal performance of it with a choir if possible. :excite:

 

NOTE: above comments were based on the live version as heard in at the summer festivals.

I like the recorded one as well, just wanted to make this clear... :teehee:

 

 

Lyrics :

 

The Origin of Love

 

Love is a drug and you are my cigarette

Love is addiction and you are my Nicorette

Love is a drug, like chocolate, like cigarettes

I'm feeling sick I got to medicate myself

 

I want your love don't try to stop me

Can't get enough, still hanging on me

Your guilty heart don't let it break you

And if you pray well no one's gonna save you

 

Like everyone that you fear and everything you hold dear

Even the book in your pocket

You are the sun and the light you are the freedom I fight

God will do nothing to stop it

The origin is you

You're the origin of love

 

Love is a drug and you are my cigarette

Love is addiction and you are my Nicorette

Love is a drug, like chocolate, like cigarettes

I'm feeling sick I've got to medicate myself

 

Well if god is a priest and the devil a slut

There's a reason for nothing

Like every word that you preach

Like every word that you teach

With every rule that you breach

You know the origin is you

 

From the air I breathe to the love I need

Only thing I know you're the origin of love

From the god above to the one I love

Only thing that's true the origin is you

x 2

 

padre nostrum deus machismo

padre deus deus machismo

dio è madre deus machismo

deus esso santo spirito or: dio sessus santo sprito

a mix of Spanish, Italian and Latin but he did confirm it was,

 

acoustic version:

Padre deus, deus machismo

Madre deus, deus machismo

dio è madre deus machismo

deus sesso santo spirito

 

Like stupid Adam and Eve they found their love in a tree

God didn't think they deserved it

He taught them hate taught them pride

Gave them a leaf made them hide

Let's push their stories aside

You know the origin is you

 

From the air I breathe to the love I need

Only thing I know is you're the origin of love

From the god above to the one I love

Only thing that's true the origin is you

x 2

 

You're the origin of love

 

Some love’s a pill and some love is a candy cane

It tastes so sweet but leaves you feeling sick with pain

Your love is air I breathe it in around me

Don't know it's there but without it I'm drowning

 

Love, you're the origin of love

 

Thank god that you found me

Thank god that you found me

Love! Thank god you found me

 

and the video

I found this great recording on YT (Thanks to LaraMay)

I don't have time to write much more but I think it is a great song and this one truely deserves to be called 'AMAZING' . :wub2:

 

PS: you may want to put this into the Front Page News section... ?

 

Thank you so much Suzie and Lara May :huglove:

I loved it at first hearing and I love Mika looking so relaxed and happy on stage singing it :wub2:

Here's what I've got so far. Some things don't quite make sense. He gets a bit excited towards the end. :naughty: I have to get to work but maybe someone else can clarify/fill in the gaps.

 

I didn't care for this at first but Lara's video is fantastic quality so it's a lot better than my first impression. Some of the lyrics grate a little bit but some of them are quite good I think. Especially the part about Adam and Eve.

 

The Origin of Love

 

From the air I breathe to the love I need

Only thing I know is you're the origin of love

From the god above to the one I love

Only thing that's true the origin is you

x 2

 

Love is a drug and you are my cigarette

Love is addiction and you are my Nicorette

Love is a drug, my chocolate, my cigarette

I feel sick got to medicate myself

 

I want your love don't try to stop me

Can't get enough, still hanging on (?) me

Your guilty heart don't let it break you

And if you pray well no one's gonna save you

 

I gave you all that you feel and everything you hold dear

If you feel broken and...

You are the sun and the light you are the freedom I fight

God (?) will do nothing to stop

The origin is you

You're the origin of love

 

Love is a drug and you are my cigarette

Love is addiction and you are my Nicorette

Love is a drug, like chocolate, like cigarette

I'm feeling sick got to medicate myself

 

Well if god is a priest and the devil is hell

There's a reason for love

Like every word that you preach like every

? that you teach

And every rule that you breach

You know the origin is you

 

From the air I breathe to the love I need

Only thing I know is you're the origin of love

From the god above to the one I love

Only thing that's true the origin is you

x 2

 

Used to be Adam and Eve they found their love in a tree

God didn't think they deserved it

He taught them hate taught them pride

Gave them a leaf made them hide

Switched (?) their stories aside

You know the origin is you

 

From the air I breathe to the love I need

Only thing I know is you're the origin of love

From the god above to the one I love

Only thing that's true the origin is you

x 2

 

Some love is pain, some love is a candy cane

Tastes so sweet but leave you feel sick ? pain

Your love is air I breathe it in and out dear

You're always there...

 

Love, you're the origin of love

You're the origin of love

You're the origin of love love love love

 

Thank god that you found me

Thank god that you found me

Thank god that you found me

 

From the air I breathe to the love I need

Only thing I know is that you're the origin of love

From the god above to the one I love

Only thing that's true the origin is you

For a strange reason when I´ve listened to this song just few minutes ago, something in my mind said: "This is Mika... he´s back!" :aah:

 

I like the song. As if it were what I was expecting from him. I still like Karen most, but this is the kind of songs I like from him...

 

 

I´m happy....:wub2:

I only got about a quarter of the way through....yours is more accurate :aah:

 

EDIT: Only one tiny thing. I think he says 'thank god that you found me' 3 times...and then says 'so I thank god that you found me' xD

I love this new song to bits!! I can`t wait for the video (I mean, I hope there will be a video for this one, but since it`s the song that gives the name of the album I doubt there won`t be) !!

Exactly! This one I liked from the first time I listened to it :wub2: No falsetto,but I like the feeling of happiness from this song :wub2: I think this is the first song when he uses so much his lower voice on it.

 

@Christine: thanks for the lyrics! :flowers2: this is a truly love song with simple words but genuine and honest.
