"If Your Love Is Real" as written by and David Gray....
Three days spent staring at your photograph
Read your letter, made me laugh
But there's a shadow on the path
'Till I know
If your love is real

Cause its not as if a lot was said
Falling in and falling out of bed
And now the world's turned on its head
'Till I know
If your love is real

Spent a long time persuading myself
That I don't no one, nobody else
That who I was, I could conceal

I'm in a daydream now
I'm out to lunch
Should it come down to the crunch
I'm wide open for that sucker punch

'Till I know
If your love is real
'Till I know
If your love is real

Spent a long time persuading myself
That I don't no one, nobody else
That I felt all there was to feel

Know if I should live a hundred years
I'd never see another face like hers
On stranger sea and brighter shore
Cause I know
That my love is real

Yeah yeah
Woah

    General Commentquestions seep through If Your Love Is Real which is "about someone falling for somebody and some mad, passionate thing that is fantastic, in-and-out of bed, then they're off somewhere else and you're wondering whether it was just a good time for them or if they really feel as deeply as you do." This he considered in terms of his own mother.
    "My mom and dad had been split up for a couple of years and my mom was about to start seeing another bloke and I remember thinking she seemed really vulnerable and what a big deal this was," he says, quietly. "All she'd been through and then to stake it all on someone else again. The courage you need to do that. Those thoughts also occurred while I was writing the song that opens this album, Flame Turns Blue."
