Meaning of “Love Someone” by Lukas Graham

“Love Someone” is a love ballad by the renowned Danish band Lukas Graham. As the title implies, the song is purely about love. The song begins with the band’s lead singer Lukas Forchhammer telling the world how sometimes he finds it so hard to believe that that special woman in his life is his. Throughout the song, he does nothing but express his deep and profound love for this woman. But who’s this woman?  She’s Marie-Louise “Rillo” Schwartz and she’s Forchhammer ‘s longtime girlfriend. In 2016, Forchhammer and Rillo welcomed a baby girl named Viola.

On the whole, the song is an ode to Rillo and the immense love he has for her. In a 2018 interview with Genius, Forchhammer said Rillo was so touched by the song the first time he played it to her that she actually wept.

      If you mean someone else, well, then is it really true that you truly love them, or are you just kidding with yourself?

    I agree with @Niel. I wish I had unconditional love, because it can mean more than the world itself.

    I love my family, and I’m fortunate for that. I wish that some families would be more accepting to some of their kids.
