I Couldn't Be More in Love

The 1975

I Couldn't Be More in Love Lyrics

[Verse 1]
At the best of times I'm lonely in my mind
But I can find something to show you
If you have got the time

Why would I rely on the things that I did right?
She said, "I gave you four years of my life"

[Chorus]
So, what about these feelings I've got?
We got it wrong and you said you'd had enough
What about these feelings I've got?
I couldn't be more in love


[Verse 2]
I could have been a great line
I could have been a sign
Or overstay my time

Say what's on your mind
Maybe I'll rely on all the things that made it right
Because I'd give you all the years of my life

[Chorus]
So, what about these feelings I've got?
We got it wrong and you said you'd had enough
But what about these feelings I've got?
I couldn't be more in love

[Instrumental]

[Chorus]
And what about these feelings I've got?
We got it wrong and you said you'd had enough
But what about these feelings I've got?
I couldn't be more in love

About “I Couldn't Be More in Love”

“I Couldn’t Be More In Love” is the fourteenth track from The 1975’s their third studio album A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships. According to Matty, the song is not a love song, but instead “it’s about what happens when no one cares anymore.”

The song is a glorious soul-power ballad ‘with a proper guitar solo, and a key change’, featuring Matty Healy’s most authentically bruised vocals yet.

Matty revealed that he recorded the vocals the day before he went to rehab:

To be fair, I sang it better when I got out, but there was just something in those vocals. It was kind of guttural. I was really upset and scared. I feel like there’s a hopelessness in the vocal performance.

In an interview with SiriusXM, Matty said: “I slipped a couple of she’s in there… to give the perspective of ‘oh he’s talking to a female, must be a partner.’ – No, no!”

Jamie O'Borne, band’s manager, confirmed that this is the song Matty Healy wrote about The 1975’s fans.

  • What have the artists said about the song?

    The vocals on this track are really intense. I don’t think I’ve heard you sing like that before.

    It’s because I struggle to sing like that. Some people can just sing and it’s the most natural thing in the world to them. But in order for me to get people to believe me, I have to really, really try. Those vocals were actually from the day before I went to rehab. To be fair, I sang it better when I got out, but there was just something in those vocals. It was kind of guttural. I was really upset and scared. I feel like there’s a hopelessness in the vocal performance.

    It’s also one of the slickest sounding songs on the record.

    Yeah it’s weird, isn’t it? It has some Eric Clapton moments.

    Especially with the guitar solo.

    That’s my solo, as well. Again, I don’t want to celebrate the part when I was using, but there were some moments we captured where I was on the brink, and there’s a real intensity to it. That was one take. It was the demo, and I just fucking nailed it for some reason. Like anything, it’s a series of little perfect accidents.

    Do you think you’ll rip the solo yourself when you play it live?

    Oh, I’ll rip it to fuck.

    Matt Healy, Pitchfork

  • How did this song come about?

    The 1975:

    It was the last thing that I wrote in the studio during sessions for ‘I Like It When You Sleep,’ our second album. I wrote a song called “Somebody Else” and then I wrote this immediately after that. It came from a couple of different places. I think that I wanted to do something that was really raw and really soulful in the truest sense of just somebody laying it out. And I want it to do the thing that I normally do of presenting a song being about something obvious when it’s actually about something different. So that was where it came from.

  • What does the song mean to you?

    The 1975:

    The overarching idea is that I’ve present it as a love song because I love form. I love what makes a love song. I think a lot of the ingredients in this are probably that. So I make it feel like it’s a song about our relationship. I use a “she” to throw people off at one point, but what it’s about is about what happens when people stop caring. What happens if I lose my fan base? Not through any mistake, but just through time. And what about these feelings I’ve got? I’m not messing around. I’m not pretending this is my catharsis. This is how I negotiate with the world now. And I did before people knew who I am and I do more so now that people do. It’s not cool to publicly worry about that. It’s not cool to be like, “What’s going to happen?” You’re supposed to be like, “I don’t care, man. It’s rock and roll, dude.” I care. Because what about all my feelings? And if I get it wrong, you don’t have many chances in this world. It’s scary being presented with such an amazing reality. The idea that it can be taken away from you terrifies me, so that’s what the song is about.

  • What was the writing process like?

    The 1975:

    The song took a while to make because when I wrote it I was like, “That’s fucking great.” I was like, “I love that. Leave it for ages.” Like, “We don’t need to worry about that. When we finished that, that’ll finish itself.” It’s not quite true. A lot of songs, it’s about trusting your instinct as an artist. That’s what I’ve really learned. You do something right and then you get celebrated. And then you go, “Well, I wasn’t really thinking about why I was doing that when I did it. So fuck, I need to do it again.” And then you try to intellectualize. When really, it was just your instinct. It’s trusting what naturally comes out is what’s going to resonate. So I think with this song, we wrote the original bit and then we tried to make it a million things and then what we actually reverted back to, essentially, the demo that we made in George’s flat. And that’s kind of what happens with most stuff. Tit around and then you just come back to the core of it.
