make sth out of nothing at all

Hi everyone!

I am very confused by the chinese translation of the lyrics of "making love out of nothing at all".Does it really mean that love has gone away?

My question is about the phrase "make sth out of nothing at all".

According the lyrics, which imply the man does everything with purposes , therefore he couldn't understand why his lover can make love out of nothing at all. In other words , his lover just loves him purely and simply , which is contrary to the man'sattitude.

However,the chinese translation translates the lyrics in another way.I am cofused by the chinese translation .What's the meaning of the phrase "make sth out of nothing at all" in this song?

Thanks!

I know just how to fake it

And I know just how to scheme

    out of 是基於.....的意思. 比如 out of curiosity.

    making love out of nothing at all 在這首歌的意思是 那個女的是玩玩愛情遊戲而已.

    但是這個男的對這個女的表白, 前面講了很多 I know...I know....

    He does know a lot, but it is nothing till he gives it to the girl.

    ...

    But I am never gonna make it without you, do you really wanna see me crawl?

    And I'm never gonna make it like you do, making love out of nothing at all.

    這是我對這首歌的理解.

    Yes, the man no longer wants a love game based on no promises like they did. This time he wants a serious relationship and he makes this song to tell the girl he cannot make love out of nothing at all like she does.

    making love out of nothing at all = 只有性,沒有一點愛

    My thought~~

    This play boy finally surrenders to the girl because she just can make love out of nothing at all.It's never a game to the man but pure love.

    感覺是無中生有,就是從沒有之中去尋找愛情。 看了中文翻譯:讓愛成為幻影,也就是一切都是沒有的。
