"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

    Song MeaningI think what I like best about this song is the combination of hope and the underlying despair -- the song is all about the willingness to take another shot at love, the intense need for it, the glory of the process combined with the fear of pain, and yet, ultimately, the singer doesn't really believe it's going to work. It is, after all, "this year's" love, which means there was last year's love, and that there will probably be next year's love after this. Wonderfully heartbreaking.

    Probably my favorite David Gray song, and there are many that I really love.
