Для меня в этой песне в каждом слове обреченность, оптимизм и покой.

Текст с первого взгляда укуренный, но если копнуть глубже, он как шифр, нет ни одного случайного слова. Для меня за авторским смыслом в каждой фразе дополнительный собственный подтекст.

I'm gonna marry a man like no other
Light the fuse, hallelujah, hallelujah

[Verse 1]
Love is the warmest colour
Petrol blues, hallelujah, hallelujah
Saut dans le vide, my lover
In my youth the greatest tide washed up my prize

Follow, let him go, let him lead me be
Love is a pharaoh, and in front of me
I thought let him be where he'd want to be
Love is a pharaoh and he's boning me

I've discovered a man like no other man
I've discovered a man like no other man
I've discovered a man like no other man
I've found a love to love like no other can

I've found a love to love like no other can
He's found me, my Aslan

Hallelujah, Bovay, Alabama
Marry a man like no other
Hallelujah, Bovay, Alabama
Love is the warmest colour
Hallelujah, Bovay, Alabama
Unpin your butterflies, Russia
Hallelujah, Bovay, Alabama
To be a deer in Nara

"Официальная трактовка":
This is the middle track of a three-song cycle named after a Japanese town, which was the capital of the country from 710 to 784, lending its name to the Nara period. According to legend, a mythological god Takemikazuchi arrived in Nara on a white deer to guard the newly built capital. Since then the deer have been worshipped as sacred, protecting the city and the country and they can be seen roaming free through the town.

The song is about gay marriage and the joy of a life without interference. Keyboardist Gus Unger-Hamilton explained in an interview for the Italian magazine Rumore: "The song was written around the time of the Winter Olympics in Russia — the Russian Government’s policy about gay people was a big topic then, and we thought what they were doing was wrong, obviously."

"The guy is basically is wishing he could be like a deer in Nara, and to be left alone to do what he wants," he added. "He’s not hurting anybody, so why should he be told that he can’t marry a man he loves?"
There is a reference to Aslan, the lion in C.S. Lewis' Chronicles Of Narnia, when Newman sings, "He's found me, my Aslan." Whilst Aslan represents mankind's saviour Jesus Christ in Lewis' allegorical Christian story, Alt-J are comparing here a homosexual relationship to the love of the redemptive lion/Jesus
