No More "I Love You's" Lyrics - Annie Lennox

Review The Song (7)



I used to be lunatic from the gracious days
I used to be woebegone and so restless nights
My aching heart would bleed for you to see
Oh but now...
(I don't find myself bouncing home whistling buttonhole tunes to make me cry)

No more "I love you's"
The language is leaving me
No more "I love you's"
Changes are shifting outside the word

(The lover speaks about the monsters)

I used to have demons in my room at night
Desire, despair, desire... SOOO MANY MONSTERS!
Oh but now...
(I don't find myself bouncing home whistling buttonhole tunes to make me cry)

No more "I love you's"
The language is leaving me
sponsored links
No more "I love you's"
The language is leaving me in silence
No more "I love you's"
Changes are shifting outside the word

(They were being really crazy
They were on the come.
And you know what mummy?
Everybody was being really crazy.
Uh huh. The monsters are crazy.
There are monsters outside.)

No more "I love you's"
The language is leaving me
No more "I love you's"
The language is leaving me in silence
No more "I love you's"
Changes are shifting outside the word
Outside the word

The mistery of Annie | Reviewer: Tshepo Mposula | 7/3/12

I believe Annie was trying to show that LOVE has two sides to it,some days its blissful 'desire' ,somedays hurtful'despair'. So u got this person in yo life,sleeps in the same bed but doesnt say I love u anymore because their heart is slowly shifting to someone.So u gotta fool yourself that things could be great again,but the whole hope thing is a monster because as your lover reasures you of their love,you can pick up from the way their words are constructed that their heart is really gone,hence 'The language is leaving me'.

totally get the meaning | Reviewer: Teo | 9/7/11

I've always liked this song but I didn't understand it's lyrics until I fell in love. When things go bad and you feel like everything slips through your fingers no matter what you do and how much you try. There were dark times and definitely fool of "monsters" - feelings and thoughts that haunt you - which you can't resist for a long time because it's close to madness. And then you give up your love for your own sanity and stop tormenting yourself. After that a peace comes but you once again find yourself outside the meaning of love.

Song from the eighties. | Reviewer: Beto Santana | 1/2/10

It's not possible for the song to have been written shortly after Freddie Mercury died 'cos it's a cover from the band The Lover Speaks, who released it in 1986.

Very good song, haunting and beautiful video from Lennox... and the original version is very nice too, try it here: hesawhore.blogspot.com/2008/11/hiden-treasure-lover-speaks.html

Well... | Reviewer: Kristine | 7/29/07

This song has potential, the chourus and the harmony is awesome, but whats with the whole monsters thing?? It is slightly disturbing. But its a pretty cool song other than that.

I love this song... | Reviewer: Rowan | 9/9/06

It's truly a wonderful song... I heard once that the song was written shortly after Freddie Mercury died. I think that's one of the reasons I like it so much!

Exceptionally lyrics, haunting musical arrangement, the unique voice of Annie Lennox blending marvelously. Exquisite video clip, too.
