Main properties of stable quark-antiquark bound states have been investigated by using a relativistic quark model with analytic confinement. A new insight into the problem of hadron mass generation is provided. It has been shown that the compositeness condition expressing the Yukawa coupling of the meson-quark interaction and the master equation relating the meson mass function to the Fermi coupling can together guarantee the equivalency of the both theories, thereby providing an interpretation of the meson field as a bound state of constituent quarks. A smooth behavior for the Fermi coupling G(M) obeying reasonable accuracy for the meson estimated masses M has been obtained. We have also updated our previous numerical results for the weak-decay constants as well as the electromagnetic decay widths of mesons. The obtained estimates are found in reasonable agreement with the recent experimental data.
