“L.O.V.E.” by Michael Bublé
You will notice that in the title of this song, the word “love” is spelled out as an acronym. This is because each letter is meant to poetically symbolize a different aspect of the singer’s romantic adoration of the addressee.
So to break it down, the word “L” stands for “look”. More specifically, it is meant to imply the affection the singer perceives in the addressee’s eyes when she gazes at him.
“O” is for “only”, as in the addressee being the apple of the singer’s eye. Meanwhile, “V” is for “very extraordinary”. And Michael would logically be applying this attribute to his partner or the relationship itself. And the “E” is actually the most-ambiguous characteristic, for Bublé describes it as “even more than anyone you adore”. This statement reads as if he is perhaps saying that the addressee has other romantic interests, yet he is superior to them all.
And basically, the chorus reads as if he is trying to convince her to get seriously involved with him. And what he promises in return is to truly love her. He is also making this assertion under the belief that their union will in fact prosper. Indeed he believes that the two of them were made for each other. And what he is asking for in return, considering that he is obviously vulnerable to her from an emotional standpoint, is for her not to break his heart.
And basically we think that is the gist of “L.O.V.E.” It is a statement of the adoration, affection and susceptibility the singer has towards the addressee.
