"Love Only Knows" as written by Josh Groban and Daniel D. Wilson....
I've tried to hold this back so long
And we're always such a good thing when it's gone
Would it be alright, if we just left our heads tonight

Take me away from this old game
Of saying that we're both too much the same

Would it be alright, if I just stayed with you tonight
And before I go, will I ever see you again
She said love only knows

Love only knows
If we'll give into fear and chose life undercover
She said love only knows
If it's special enough then we'll chose one another
We'll chose each other

You were the secret I loved to keep
The name I would only sing in my sleep
Would it be alright, if we just lose ourselves tonight
And if you let go, will you reach out again
She said love only knows

Love only knows, if we'll give into fear and chose life undercover
She said love only knows, if it's special enough then we'll chose one another
We'll choose each other

And I can't breathe without you and I don't
And I can't live without love and I won't
And I won't

Love only knows
If we'll give into fear and choose life undercover
She said love only knows if it's special enough then we'll choose one another
Love only knows, how your arms pull me in like the tide pulls me under
She said love only knows just how long we can run before we lose each other
And we need each other

And I can't live without you and I won't

    General CommentThis is such a beautiful song! I think its about a couple who aren't allowed to be with each other or people dont want them together so they have to keep their relationship secretive ("life undercover" "secret I loved to keep") But its been very hard for both of them so they're not sure if they should keep going or give up. For the moment they want to just "lose themselves" but they know they'll have to make a decision if their love is worth all the trouble they have to go through to have a relationship. Its a bittersweet song.
