“I’m looking for a love that I can’t find / To be mine / A love that’s mine / It’ll shine in my mind / A love that shines.”
Now I’m not one of those guys who thinks that dumb lyrics automatically wreck a song. A lot of my favorite songs have stupid lyrics. But you can’t take yourself too seriously if you’re going to get away with terrible lyrics. And Billy Corgan takes himself very seriously. Man, is he trying to write an anthem here? About a love that shines? Oy. Are you real this time?
