The Doors - Love Street




"Love Street" is a 1968 song by The Doors which appears on their album Waiting For The Sun.

This song is about the street in Laurel Canyon, California where Jim Morrison lived with his girlfriend, Pamela Courson.


The address was 1812 Rothdell Trail, but they called it "Love Street" because they could sit on the balcony and watch the hippies go by.


This was released as the B-side of "Hello, I Love You."


The line, "There's a store where the creatures meet" refers to the canyon store where all the hippies of the canyon hung out.


The lyrics, "She has me and she has you" indicates that Morrison knows that his girlfriend Pamela Courson has relations with other men.






Lyrics


She lives on Love Street

Lingers long on Love Street

She has a house and garden

I would like to see what happens


She has robes and she has monkeys

Lazy diamond studded flunkies

She has wisdom and knows what to do

She has me and she has you


She has wisdom and knows what to do

She has me and she has you


I see you live on Love Street

There's this store where the creatures meet

I wonder what they do in there

Summer Sunday and a year

I guess I like it fine, so far


She lives on Love Street

Lingers long on Love Street

She has a house and garden

I would like to see what happens


La, la, la, la, la, la, la

La, la, la, la, la, la, la

La, la, la, la, la, la, la

La, la, la, la, la, la, la

La, la, la, la, la, la, la
