"This Year's Love" as written by and David Gray....
This year's love had better last
Heaven knows it's high time
I've been waiting on my own too long
And when ya hold me like you do
It feels so right oh now
I start to forget how my heart gets torn
When that hurt gets thrown
Feeling like you can't go on

Turning circles and time again
Cut like a knife oh now
If ya love me got to know for sure
'Cause it takes something more this time
Than sweet, sweet lies oh now
Before I open up my arms and fall
Losing all control
Every dream inside my soul
When ya kiss me on that midnight street
Sweep me off my feet
Singing, "ain't this life so sweet?"

This year's love had better last

This year's love had better last

'Cause who's to worry if our hearts get torn
When that hurt gets thrown
Don't ya know this life goes on?
Won't ya kiss me on that midnight street?
Sweep me off my feet
Singing, "ain't this life so sweet?"

This year's love had better last
This year's love had better last
This year's love had better last
This year's love had better last
This year's love had better last
Woah woah woah I yeah
This year's love had better last

    General CommentDavid talks about some pretty painful stuff (heartbreak, constant uncertainty in relationships), but i doubt this song was written as a representation of what david might say to a new love interest. Its too raw for that. To me, this song sounds like the thoughts going through the head of someone in a long term on/off relationship, those fears and doubts that have had time to cultivate and grow within you through a long,and unstable relationship.

    "Turning circles when time again
    It cuts like a knife oh yeah
    If you love me got to know for sure
    Cos it takes something more this time
    Than sweet sweet lies"

    You think about these fears that the pattern will repeat and pray that it wont, but even though it eats away at you, you cant tell the person to their face how scared you are that they will hurt you again, like they did the last time, and the last time. He alludes to some pretty destructive relationship patterns

    "But when you hold me like you do/ it feels so right/ i start to forget /How my heart gets torn/ When that hurt gets thrown"

    perhaps my interpretation is the way it is because ive had my heart broken many times by the same person, but nonetheless, i think that it at least provides a slightly different angle to the most popular opinions, which also work well

    this is what i love about music, it sounds different to everyone!
