The Outfield - Your Love


The Outfield - Your Love - Meaning of the song


With a distinctive guitar riff and an unforgettable opening line, "Your Love" became one of the most memorable hits of the '80s. When lead singer Tony Lewis declares, "Josie's on a vacation far away, come around and talk it over," we know he's up to something. Our hero spends the rest of the song in seduction mode, trying to convince this girl (probably and ex-girlfriend) to have a one-night-stand. He pulls every trick from the player's handbook: Nobody Will Ever Know ("Stay the night but keep it undercover") I Really Need Comfort ("Another shoulder to cry upon") I Don't Know Where Else To Turn ("I ain't got many friends left to talk to") It Won't Mean Anything ("I just wanna use your love tonight") Does he capture his prey? We never find out, but it's clear that Josie deserves better.


Your love - Lyrics


Josie's on a vacation far away

Come around and talk it over

So many things that I want to say

You know I like my girls a little bit older

I just wanna use your love tonight

I don't wanna lose your love tonight


I ain't got many friends left to talk to

No one's around when I'm in trouble

You know I'd do anything for you

Stay the night but keep it undercover

I just wanna use your love tonight, whoa

I don't wanna lose your love tonight


Try to stop my hands from shakin'

Somethin' in my mind's not makin' sense

It's been awhile since we were all alone

I can't hide the way I'm feelin'


As you leave me, please, would you close the door?

And don't forget what I told you

Just 'cause you're right, that don't mean I'm wrong

Another shoulder to cry upon

I just wanna use your love tonight, yeah

I don't wanna lose your love tonight

Yeah, I just wanna use your love tonight

I don't wanna lose your love tonight

I just wanna use your love tonight

I don't wanna lose your love tonight


(Lose your love)

(Lose your love)

Tonight (Lose your love)

I don't wanna lose (Lose your love tonight)

I don't wanna, I don't wanna, I don't wanna (Lose your love tonight)

No, no (Lose your love tonight)

(Lose your love tonight)

No, no (I don't wanna lose your love tonight)

(Lose your love tonight)
