    What does made love in this sentense mean?

    Oh, I've been to Georgia and California and anywhere I could run
    I took the hand of a preacher man and we made love in the sun
    But I ran out of places and friendly faces because I had to be free
    I've been to paradise but I've never been to me.


    Does it mean "Have sex"

    In my country, we never use words about sex in songs.

    From the song "I"ve never been to me"
    Hello everyone. My Name is Noppanat. I'm from Thailand.

    It probably means sexual intercourse, but in a song, in this context, it doesn't have to mean exactly that.
    In English, there is a lot of sex in songs. But often it's expressed very generally.

    Re: What does made love in this sentense mean?

    If you are going to look at song lyrics in English, you will probably have to get used to lots of phrases to do with subjects which might not be mentioned in songs in your own country. British and American songs, certain genres more than others, frequently mention sex, drugs, drink, illicit affairs, illegal activities etc.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
