Love Is Noise - The Verve

Love Is Noise

Forth
britpop alternative rock british indie rock


"Love Is Noise" is a song by English alternative rock band The Verve and is the second track on their fourth album Forth. Richard Ashcroft stated that lyrically the song is a take off of William Blake's "And did those feet in ancient time", commonly known as 'Jerusalem'. Whereas in Blake's song the title verse is "and did those feet in ancient time. Walk upon England's mountains green?" Love is Noise asks: "Will those feet in modern times / Walk on soles that are made in China?" "Love Is Noise" derived from another song off the album, Columbo. While recording that track Richard created a new loop on a vocoder and added it to the song. "Columbo" was practically a jam the band had been working on for a couple of days. After that loop was added, all the band started adding some stuff on to it until finally, it evolved into a different track.

Love Is Noise - The Verve

Will those feet in modern times
Walk on soles that are made in China?
Feel the bright prosaic malls
Through the corridors that go on and on and on

I was blind - didn't see
What was here in me
I was lost - insecure
Felt like the road was way too long, yeah
Cause love is noise and love is pain
Love is these blues that we're feeling again
Love is noise and love is pain
Love is these blues that I'm singing again, again, again

Will those feet in modern times
Understand this righteous anger
Recognise this world's addiction
Understand this world's affliction?

I was blind - didn't see
What was here in me
I was lost - insecure
I felt like the road was way too long, yeah
Cause love is noise and love is pain
Love is these blues that I'm feeling again
Love is noise and love is pain
Love is these blues that I'm feeling again
Love is noise, love is pain
Love is these blues that I'm singing again
Love is noise, love is pain
Love is these blues that I'm singing again, again, again, again, again, again

Cause love is noise, love is pain
Love is these blues that I'm feeling again
Love is noise, love is pain
Love is these blues that I'm feeling again
Love is noise, love is pain
Love is these blues that I'm feeling again
Love is noise, love is pain
Love is these blues that I'm feeling again
Come on, come on, ah come on, ah come on
Now come on, now come on, now come on
Now come on

Will those feet in modern times
Walk on soles made in China?
Will those feet in modern times
See the bright prosaic malls?
Will those feet in modern times
Forgive me all my sins
Love is noise
