"Love will come through" as written by and Francis Healy....
If I told you a secret
You won't tell a soul
Will you hold it and
Keep it alive

Cause it's burning a hole
And I can't get to sleep
And I can't live alone
In this life

So look up, take it away
Don't look da-da-da-down
The mountain

If the world isn't turning
Your heart won't return
Anyone, anything, anyhow

So take me, don't leave me
Take me, don't leave me
Baby, love will come through
It's just waiting for you

And you stand at the crossroads
Of highroads and lowroads
And I've got a feeling
It's right

If it's real what I'm feeling
There's no make believing
The sound of the wings
Of the flight

Of a dove, take it away
Don't look da-da-da-down
The mountain

If the world isn't turning
Your heart won't return
Anyone, anything, anyhow

So take me, don't leave me
Take me, don't leave me
Baby, love will come through
It's just waiting for you

Oh, look up, take it away
Don't look da-da-da-down

If the world isn't turning
Your heart won't return
Anyone, anything, anyhow

So take me, don't leave me
Take me, don't leave me
Baby, love will come through
It's just waiting for you

Love will come through
Love will come through
Love will come through

    General Commenti think it's about the difference between waiting for someone to love you and taking the initiative to just go and love someone no matter the consequences. i feel like many people find it easier to wait for someone to love them, they try to be as lovable as they can, but they may never know (the dreaded "what if") unless they try to love someone else instead. we shouldn't "look down the mountain," be scared to love whoever it is we love because no matter what you'll eventually be one step closer to finding the person that will love you back.

    General CommentI actually really like this song. This is so far their best single from the new album, in my opinion. Love the music to it.

    General CommentYeah, I really do like this song. I suppose its concept (that love is supreme and that it is there for everyone) isn't an awfully unique one, but musically, at least, it's certainly a great song.

    General CommentI love this song, am a bit crazed over that they didn't write this song, but it sure doesn't sound like them... But I think they did a wonderful job on it and it's beautiful.

    General CommentA lovely song!
    This song is about your love for your friends and family, not for a girl. It symbolize what you trust your friends with, f.ex. secrets and feelings about a girl. We can very easily see this in the lyrics.

    "If I told you a secret
    You won't tell a soul
    Will you hold it and
    Keep it alive"

    -and f.ex.

    "Baby, love will come through
    It's just waiting for you"

    Either telling a friend this or beeing told by.

    General CommentThis song reminds me a situation that you are burning with love feel that he's the only one, and you can't tell him that you love him. You know that if you tell it; evrything will be harder for you for him and for some other people.

    If I told you a secret
    You won't tell a soul
    Will you hold it and
    Keep it alive

    I felt that this was a secret of "I love you"

    But this can also be for the family, why not.

    And if it's for a love, I'm sure that this love also includes strong friendship too.

    The music and the video is magical. I love this song which I feel that fully expresses how I feel.
