Lady Gaga took the stage at Coachella at 11:20 p.m. Pacific on Saturday becoming the first woman to headline the festival in 10 years. And while her presence alone can get people screaming, it was the debut of her new single, "The Cure," that really won them over

The song debuted halfway through her headlining set, according to Rolling Stone. It marks a return to pop after a brief departure to the land of country with her recent album Joanne — and it seems the decision was a good one. In just one day, "The Cure" shot to the No. 1 spot on iTunes in the United States.

"I love you guys so much," Gaga told the Coachella crowd, according to Entertainment Weekly. "I have been through so much in my life and I've seen so much. And you cure me every time with your love."

"The Cure" is a sincere homage to her fans, as evidenced by listening to the song and its lyrics.

"The Cure" lyrics

Here are the lyrics to "The Cure," according to Genius.

I'll undress you, 'cause you're tired
Cover you as you desire
When you fall asleep inside my arms
May not have the fancy things
But I'll give you everything
You could ever want, it's in my arms

So baby tell me yes
And I will give you everything
So baby tell me yes
And I will be all yours tonight
So baby tell me yes
And I will give you everything
I will be right by your side

If i can't find the cure, I'll 
I'll fix you with my love
No matter what you know, I'll 
I'll fix you with my love
And if you say you're okay
I'm gonna heal you anyway
Promise I'll always be there
Promise I'll be the cure (be the cure)

Rub your feet, your hands, your legs
Let me take care of it, babe
Close your eyes, I'll sing your favorite song
I wrote you this lullaby
Hush now baby, don't you cry
Anything you want could not be wrong

So baby tell me yes
And I will give you everything
So baby tell me yes
And I will be all yours tonight
So baby tell me yes
And I will give you everything
I will be right by your side

If I can't find the cure, I'll 
I'll fix you with my love
No matter what you know, I'll
I'll fix you with my love
And if you say you're okay
I'm gonna heal you anyway
Promise I'll always be there
Promise I'll be the cure (be the cure)

I'll fix you with my love
(I'll fix you my love-lo-love)
I'll fix you with my love
(I'll fix you with my love-lo-love)

If I can't find the cure, I'll
I'll fix you with my love
No matter what you know, I'll
I'll fix you with my love
And if you say you're okay
I'm gonna heal you anyway
Promise I'll always be there
Promise I'll be the cure (be the cure)
Promise I'll be the cure (be the cure)

I'll fix you with my love

In the opening lines, it sounds like Gaga is a mom talking to her children or "Little Monsters," as her fans are called. The chorus feels akin to other Gaga songs that advocate for marginalized groups and people who've been abused

It also sounds like a love song to anyone who has experienced a breakup, which Gag experienced recently when she split with fiancée Taylor Kinney not too long ago.

Regardless of the motivation, "The Cure" has effectively swept fans off their feet, and is hopefully just a taste of more new awesomeness to come.
