"Love Is Only A Feeling" as written by Francis Gilles Poullain-patterson, Daniel Francis Hawkins, Edwin James Graham and Justin David Hawkins....
The first flush of youth was upon you when our eyes first met
And I knew that to you and into your life I had to get
I felt light-headed at the touch of this stranger's hand
An assault my defenses systematically failed to withstand

'cause you came at a time
When the pursuit of one true love in which to fall
Was the be all and end all

Love is only a feeling
(Drifting away)
When I'm in your arms I start believing
(It's here to stay)
But love is only a feeling
Anyway

The state of elation that this unison of hearts achieved
I had seen, I had touched, I had tasted and I truly believed

The the light of my life
Would tear a hole right though each cloud that scudded by
Just to beam on you and I

Love is only a feeling
(Drifting away)
When I'm in your arms I start believing
(It's here to stay)
But love is only a feeling
Anyway

Love is only a feeling
(Drifting away)
And we've got to stop ourselves believing
(It's here to stay)
'cause love is only a feeling
Anyway

    This is a pretty amazing song, me thinks.
    Knowing something is only going to fail, yet going on
    makes me feel confused, nervous, happy, scared, like all the emotions present in the song.

    To me, that is lyrical genius at it's up most,
    The words are so poweful.

    Awesome song, was an awesome band,
    classical rock just what we were missing:/.

    & I'm sorry but 'Hot Leg'
    Are or never will be anything compared to what The Darkness were.

    General CommentMy favourite song of existence. It quite simply interprets (to me), that love is a very beautiful yet risky emotion that one could feel at any time. Hawkins implies at various times in the song that when one is with another person, they believe in the idea that love is real, and though they aren't sure if it is, it can make the person feel almost invincible, and capable of doing the impossible with that person beside them. Inevitably, love is just an emotion that is fleeting and can cause massive heartache whenever the feeling isn't as euphoric as it once was, however, Hawkins suggests throughout the song that this feeling isn't really one to give up on, considering it makes you feel so good about yourself.

    General CommentThe Darkness's music is brilliant, they can combine power chords and kickin' guitar solos, in the same verse. They are extremely talented.
