    What does the song "Love Walks In" mean?

    I am very good at interpreting lyrics, especially Sammy's lyrics, but what does "Love Walks in" mean? In LWAN, Sammy says that it's about "Aliens". Of course, I catch some references to aliens, but what about "LOVE"? Could someone please interpret this song for me, line by line, if you could? That would greatly be appreciated!

    And when you sense a change, nothing feels the same, all your dreams are strange, love comes walking in.

    It's about how you feel when you fall in love?

    According to Sammy, it's actually about alien abduction.

    Sammy said in an interview last summer that he's been abducted off and on by ETs since he was a kid. Needless to say this was a major source of amusement on this and the Roth boards.

    It does exlpain the way he dresses though.

    I think they replaced Ed with one of their own...

    Actually the second night in Philadelphia, they played Seventh Seal, and when the intro begins with the monks chanting, Ed stood frozen at the microphone, with his hands next to his head (he was playing with his hair at that moment - he left it down that night) with a look on his face like - where the hell is that coming from... It looked like someone had scrambled his brains actually... what a goof...

    love walks in is about love, how it makes you feel sometimes, when you see that special person how strang you feel when your in love, it's a good thing.

    well love can be a pretty alien feeling at times, so it could be about that awkward alien type feeling you get just before you find out if its true love or not.

    Sammy uses "Aliens" as a metaphor to describe the feelings of love.

    If not about aliens per se, it's definitely about a paranormal phenomenon. Listen to "Love Walks In" on the RHRN album. At the top of the track, Sammy says: "This is a song inspired by Ruth Montgomery. It's about walk-ins . . . "

    Ruth Montgomey wrote about "walk-ins"--enlightened beings who are allowed to take over the body of a person who desires to depart their life--in her 1979 book Strangers Among Us. It's said that Sammy was inspired to write the words to LWI after reading this book.

    Omit "rich" and you're probably closer to what many people think about the song.

    Whatever you think it means.

    That's what's great about music, apply it to what it makes you feel and what memories it triggers for you. Don't try to get in the artists head, let them get into yours.

    I always thought it was the exact opposite of an Australian Love Walk About...

    It's just another sappy love song that shouldn't have made the album...

    On a semi-related note, are there any good websites that either give or link to lyrical interpretations of songs?
