    Question What's the meaning of 'stone in love'?

    What's the meaning of 'stone in love' in these lyrics?

    Those crazy nights, I do remember in my youth
    I do recall, those were the best times, most of all
    In the heat with a blue jean girl
    Burnin' love comes once in a lifetime
    She found me singing by the rail road track
    Took me home, we danced by moonlight


    Those summer nights are callin'
    stone in love
    Can't help myself I'm fallin'
    stone in love


    Old dusty roads, led to the river
    Runnin' slow
    She pulled me down, and in clover
    We'd go 'round
    In the heat with a blue jean girl
    Burnin' love comes once in a lifetime
    Oo the memories never fade away
    Golden girl, I'll keep you forever


    Those summer nights are callin'
    stone in love
    Can't help myself I'm fallin'
    stone in love

    He's falling in love quickly, like a falling stone.

    That's my favorite Journey song and in the 30 some years I've known it I've never thought that it actually meant anything.

    He might mean 'completely in love', as in 'stone deaf'.

    Maybe he's stoned on love instead of dope.
