The Kind of Love We Make: inside the lyrics and their meaning

The lyrics of The Kind of Love We Make are a beautiful message addressed to all long time couples who lost the passion, the connecting spirit of the beginning. In this song Luke Combs describes the way consolidated love relationships sometimes end up consuming each other’s energy on plans, daily duties and discussions, losing the focus of the real reasons why we are together, the sources of love. Therefore, the true meaning of the song is: let’s take a break from plans for a moment, and focus on the way we always loved each other.

The song begins with the bitter awareness of the way long time relationships go. In a nice image, Luke Combs proposes to take some “little time alone”, but we realize immediately that it’s not a literal proposal: the idea is to discover each other once again, like the first days.

We’ve been burnin’ both ends
Keepin’ the lights on
So I’ve been thinkin’ we need
A little time alone

So what you say we cancel our plans?
Tonight I’m only gonna be your man

“Tonight I’m only gonna be your man” becomes then a return to the origins, to the days when everything was so intense and pure. And focusing on the way we can still love our partner, still today. The chorus presents therefore a beautiful romantic scene where the couple rediscovers the love they have for each other.

Let’s get some candles burning
And some records turning
All the lights down low
Take it nice and slow
The way your body’s moving
Keep doing what you’re doing to me all night long
Writin’ our love song
Girl, I want it, gotta have it
Let the passion take us to a higher place
Makin’ the kind of love we make

Analysing the meaning of the lyrics, The Kind of Love We Make is a romantic song and a lesson to learn: even when we are together with the same person for years, the flame of love, of passion, is still there. And if things get complicated in managing the daily duties, it’s the best time to stop and switch again the focus on the love we feel. On the higher dimension of the relationship.

We’ve been burnin’ both ends
Keepin’ the lights on
So I’ve been thinkin’ we need
A little time alone

So what you say we cancel our plans?
Tonight I’m only gonna be your man

Let’s get some candles burning

Writin’ our love song
Girl, I want it, gotta have it
Let the passion take us to a higher place
Makin’ the kind of love we make

There ain’t no way, baby
To get me out this house
When you look this good
What could I even think about? Oh, oh

Besides turn around and lockin’ the door
Watching your red dress fall to the floor

Let’s get some candles burning
And some records turning
All the lights down low
Take it nice and slow
The way your body’s moving
Keep doing what you’re doing to me all night long
Writin’ our love song
Girl, I want it, gotta have it
Let the passion take us to a higher place
Makin’ the kind of love we make

Kind of love we make

Some records turning
All the lights down low
Take it nice and slow
The way your body’s moving
Keep doing what you’re doing to me all night long
Writin’ our love song
Girl, I want it, gotta have it
Let the passion take us to a higher place
Girl, I want it, gotta have it
Let the passion take us to a higher place
Makin’ the kind of love we make
Kind of love we make

Makin’ the kind of love we make
