It’s The Sweetest Pain

Jim Adams, aka Newepicauthor, the creator of A Unique Title For Me, is hosting SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY and this week he has chosen the theme: ANXIETY/DELIGHT/EMOTIONS/PAIN/PRIDE/RELIEF

I am feeling ever so romantic this week. It is so nice to be in love. Yet I can testify to the rollercoaster journey that is often involved in the transition from meeting someone to allowing them to turn your life upside down! It is a cocktail of anxiety, delight, pain, relief, pride – yes all the emotions Jim provided to inspire our song choice today.

There is a song that I fell in love with years ago, around the time that Jack and I were probably at our lowest point – it was dire – and whenever I heard this song, I wanted to collapse in a heap of tears. But I loved this song, I loved what it captures.

The song itself we owe to Diane Warren – who wrote some of my very favourite love songs. But I want to give a nod to the singer – the sensational Paloma Faith. We like her because she has been a real grafter and it is pleasing when someone gets a break after all their hard work.

I cannot play you the official video for this song, it is a little too over-excitable for my blog. But I have some treats for you, starting with my favourite – her live performance at the Brit Awards. At the end of this post there are two more videos of Paloma singing live – and I just love them.

When I first watched this video, I was a tiny bit nervous for her at the start, but she gets better and better, and the ending is so spectacular.

I tell myself you don't mean a thing,
And what we got, got no hold on me
But when you're not there I just crumble
I tell myself I don't care that much,
But I feel like I die 'til I feel your touch,

Only love, only love can hurt like this,
Only love can hurt like this
Must have been a deadly kiss
Only love can hurt like this

Say I wouldn't care if you walked away,
But every time you're there I'm begging you to stay,
And when you come close I just tremble
And every time, every time you go,
It's like a knife that cuts right to my soul

Only love, only love can hurt like this
Only love can hurt like this,
Must have been a deadly kiss,
Only love can hurt like this,
Only love can hurt like this

Your kisses burn into my skin,
Only love can hurt like this
But it's the sweetest pain,
Burning hot through my veins,
Love is torture makes me more sure
Only love can hurt like this

Only love can hurt like this,
Only love can hurt like this,
Must have been a deadly kiss,
Only love can hurt like this,

Only love can hurt like this,
Your kisses burn into my skin,
Only love can hurt like this,
Only love can hurt like this,
Only love can hurt like this,
Only love can hurt
Save me, save me,
Only love, only love,
'Cause only love can hurt like this
And it must have been a deadly kiss
