This is not a song for the lonely. It is a song for everyone. The iconic and original song was referring to everyone, not just heartbroken souls who have been neglected at the wine table of amorous and passionate love. The song embraces all those who have had their hearts broken for a number of different reasons. It embraces those who were once brave and lost their lives because of their great love for others.
And, of course, it expresses solidarity with those who might even today still be in mourning after all these lost and lonely years. The song is basically saying that no one needs to be lonely anymore. There is more than enough love to go around. The term to make love to someone has a great deal many more connotations than the obvious expression of physical passion. Now, all this is interesting and highly uplifting perhaps for those that need a lift, but how to make someone fall in love with you remains the burdensome question for many, even those who are not so desperate at this time.
There are many ways to skin a cat, although, in reality, you will never be doing such a heinous deed. But you would be surprised. You would be surprised just how many desperate men and women out there resort to nasty and crazy measures to get someone to take notice of them. That is not the way to get someone to fall in love with you. Even if you get a lovely mystic to cast a spell over someone you have been eyeing for some time, you still need to express genuine feelings of true love for the other.
