Gwen Stefani's marriage is fulfilling and rewarding in the modish "Luxurious."
The Isley Brothers' sample of "Between The Sheets" starts the song. A man speaks in French over it. It sets an exquisite tone.
Stefani begins with the chorus. She says that she and her husband maintain their marriage and give it the care it needs. In return, they have a satsifying relationship. They work hard at their jobs and invest the money.
"Working so hard every night and day/And now we get the pay back/Trying so hard saving up the paper/Now we get to lay back/Working so hard every night and day/And now we get the pay back, the pay back, the pay back."
In the first verse, she compares his kisses to white wine. His kisses are savory and divine. Cuddling with him is like being surrounded by an extravagant garden with sculptures and an Olympic-sized pool. It's comforting and relaxing. He is a classy guy who takes her anywhere she wishes. Their love for each other has grown into something deeper over the years. When they look to the sky, they see diamonds, not stars. He treats her well and lets her have anything she wants. She has life good with him.
"Champagne kisses hold me in your lap of luxury/I only want to fly first class desires, you're my limousine/So elegant the way we ride, our passion it just multiplies/There's platinum lightning in the sky/Look I'm livin' like a queen."
In the pre-chorus, she says they are both getting spoiled. They live their lives to the fullest. Their relationship is like finely threaded, imported cotton. It's unlike anything else and unique. Their love is warm and silky, like cashmere.They both started out raw and inexperienced regarding relationships. But now, they are the finest couple.
"This kind of love is getting expensive/We know how to live baby/We're luxurious like Egyptian cotton/We're so rich in love we're rollin' in cashmere/Got it in fifth gear baby/Diamond in the rough is lookin' so sparkly."
The chorus is sung again.
In the second verse, she says that when they hold hands or hug, the affection becomes as valuable and precious as gold. It's beautiful like the tuberose. Which according to dictionary.com, is a Mexican lilywhite flower. He's sacred to her. When they kiss, it's like out of a movie. She says they are bonded together and will be well into their 80s.
"Sugar, honey, sexy baby/When we touch it turns to gold/Sensitive and delicate kinda like a tuberose/You know you are my treasure chest/It's pure perfection when we kiss and/You're my Mr., I'm your Miss/Gonna be until we're old."
The pre-chorus is sung again, but edited.
"This kind of love is getting expensive/
We know how to live baby/We're luxurious like Egyptian cotton."
The chorus is sung twice. It segues into the bridge.
