Love Walks In

by

Van Halen



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This song deals with extra-terrestrials, which can interpreted as a metaphor for new love, or as Van Halen reaching out to new fans. 5150 was the first album Van Halen released with new lead singer Sammy Hagar, and Hagar drew the lyrics from some out-of-body experiences. In an interview with Guitar World magazine, Hagar said: "I'm a firm believer - have seen, have felt, have been contacted 3 or 4 different times. I have received information that has been valuable in my life from those people, and they have used me. I'm gonna sound like a complete nut here, but they have used me in an experimental fashion. The easiest way to put it is that they downloaded my brain information. When I was about 19 or 20, they downloaded everything that was in my head. And I caught 'em doin' it! I woke up in the middle of the night, thinking, 'What's goin' on?' They were like, 'Oh, my god, he's waking up!' But this was all telepathy - there were no words being spoken. And as soon as I woke up - it was probably 3 o'clock in the morning - my whole room was so bright that I could hardly keep my eyes open. I was wide-awake, I could not move, eyes open, white room, they were still disconnecting - and when they did, it just went bang! Everything went back to normal, back to black. I was shaking, I almost passed out, I was sick to my stomach and almost had to throw up, it was so scary. It sent me on a course of curiosity. I bought a telescope, and I started reading UFO books, and I just got into the whole thing. And since then, there have been 3 or 4 other contacts with the same group of people. I don't know who the f--k they are, but I've narrowed them down to a people called The Nine, who are called that because they're from the Ninth Dimension. I've named my publishing company the Nine Music after them. It's a crazy thing, man. But to me, anyone who thinks we're the only ones here, despite the vastness of the entire universe, is f--king crazy. Those people gotta be put away - not the guys having these contacts."
