If you take a look at the lyrics, that part has nothing to do with the song. Even Mika says after the part you are question "Lets push this story aside." So, personally, I think its irrelavant, and it seems Mika agrees.

lyrics to the Italian Edit aren't posted here yet, are they?

 

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

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

Now there's a reason for loving

Like every word that you preach

Like every word that you teach

With every rule that you breach

You know the origin is you

 

Scende su di me

la certezza e

ora io so che

sei l'origine dell'amor.

Sale fino a Dio

il pensiero mio

dubbi non ho più

l'origine sei tu

 

Padre nostrum, deus machismo

Padre deus, deus machismo

Dione madre, deus machismo

Deus esso sancto 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

 

Scende su di me

la certezza e

ora io so che

sei l'origine dell'amor.

Sale fino a Dio

il pensiero mio

dubbi non ho più

l'origine sei tu

 

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

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

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

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

I love your analysis! And the comparison of Mika to Erasure! They both have those uplifting melodies, but sometimes dark lyrics! Thanks for the Latin lyrics😁

MFCers, I'd need your help, please! Don't know if it's already been discussed in the past, there's a sentence I'd like to translate properly, but I can't figure out how.

When Mika sings "Can't get enough, still hanging on me", what does the second sentence mean exactly?
