"This Is Love" as written by Daniel David Anthony Harvey and James Kevin Walker....
I can't believe that life's so complex
When I just want to sit here and watch you undress
I can't believe that life's so complex
When I just want to sit here and watch you undress

This is love, this is love
That I'm feeling
This is love, this is love
That I'm feeling
This is love, love, love
That I'm feeling

Does it have to be a life full of dread
I wanna chase you round the table, I wanna touch your head
Does it have to be a life full of dread
I wanna chase you round the table, I wanna touch your head

This is love, this is love
That I'm feeling
This is love, this is love
That I'm feeling
This is love, love, love, love
That I'm feeling

I can't believe that the axis turns on suffering
When you taste so good
I can't believe that the axis turns on suffering
When my head burns

Love, love, love, love
That I'm feeling
This is love, this is love
That I'm feeling
This is love, love, love, love
That I'm feeling

Even in the summer
Even in the spring
You can never get too much of
A wonderful thing

You're the only story that I never told
You're my dirty little secret, wanna keep you so
You're the only story that never been told
You're my dirty little secret, wanna keep you so

Come on out, come on over, help me forget
Keep the walls from falling as they're tumbling in
Come on out, come on over, help me forget
Keep the walls from falling on me, tumbling in
Keep the walls from falling as they're tumbling in

This is love, this is love
That I'm feeling
This is love, this is love
That I'm feeling
This is love, this is love
That I'm feeling
This is love, love, love, love
That I'm feeling
This is love, love, love
That I'm feeling
This is love, love, love
That I'm feeling
This is love, love, love, love
That I'm feeling
This is love, this is love
That I'm feeling

    General CommentHow in 10 years has no one mentioned these are the totally wrong ass lyrics? lol Not even Polly's! The lyrics above are for Texas' "Beliefs" XD The CORRECT lyrics:

    I can't believe life's so complex
    When I just wanna' sit here and watch you undress
    This is love that I'm feeling
    Does it have to be a life full of dread?
    I wanna' chase you round the table, I wanna' touch your head
    This is love that I'm feeling
    I can't believe that the axis turns on suffering
    When you taste so good
    I can't believe that the axis turns on suffering
    While my head burns
    This is love that I'm feeling
    Even in the summer, even in the spring
    You can never get too much of a wonderful thing

    You're the only story that I never told
    You're my dirty little secret, wanna' keep you so
    Come on out, come on over, help me forget
    Keep the walls from falling on me, tumbling in
    - This is love that I'm feeling

    General Commentthis is about the pure joy taken from being in love and about the haze that it creates, hiding impurity and trouble under the carpet (as it were). nice to see it aswell, after all artful music rarely tries to show anything but doom and gloom. For that i give this powerful song ultimate respect.

    General CommentI like the repitition--it has a nice effect, sort of like her head is spinning from all the feelings of being in love.

    General CommentDefinitely about something she wants to cover up, she gets thrills from it being secret and forbidden: 'you're my dirty little secret, wanna keep you so'. Great song.

    General Commentlove is difficult, relationships are difficult and everyone has their complications, nothing fits like a jigsaw. this captures that and also the wonderful feeling that is love.

    General CommentI think that it's about being unfaithful. That love is not "good", but it feels really nice.

    She feels guilty about it: "I can't believe that the axis turns on suffering/When you taste so good"

    And it's a forbidden love but she wants it to be that way because she's just having fun: "You're the only story that never been told/ You're my dirty little secret, wanna keep you so"

    General CommentDespite what she says in the chorus, I think she's mostly just feeling lust not love in this song.

    Totally hot
