Branch, Michelle - I'd Rather Be In Love Lyrics




I cannot help it I couldn't stop it if I tried
The same old heartbeat fills the emptiness I have inside
And I've heard that you can't fight love, so I won't complain
'Cause why would I stop the fire that keeps me going on?

'Cause when there's you, I feel whole
And there's no better feeling in the world
But without you I'm alone
And I'd rather be in love with you

Turn out the lights now
To see is to believe
I just want you near me
I just want you here with me
And I'd give up everything only for you
It's the least that I could do

'Cause when there's you, I feel whole
And there's no better feeling in the world
But without you I'm alone
And I'd rather be in love with you

And I feel you holding me

Why are we afraid to be in love?
To be loved
I can't explain it
I know it's tough to be loved

And I feel you holding me

Oh, oh
And when there's you, I feel whole
And there's no better feeling in the world
But without you I'm alone

And I'd rather be in love
Yes, I'd rather be in love
Oh, I'd rather be in love with you

And I feel you holding me, oh

Branch, Michelle I'd Rather Be In Love Comments
  1. Celestia Yashida

    Nearly the end 2019 and Im still here, the spirit room is truly one of the most underrated album ever!

    SenorTwoPhones

    Celestia Yashida Her entire catalogue of songs is underrated

    Celestia Yashida

    @SenorTwoPhones trueee but nothing from her comes after this that could top this album tho

    SenorTwoPhones

    Celestia Yashida I’d like to say Hotel Paper was on par with Spirit Room

  2. Anthony Espinoza

    I’m so thankful I found this album back in the day. Thank you Ms. Branch.

  3. Amrulloh Amrul

  5. Honest Erica

    I 💖Michelle 🕊🕊🕊

  6. 700gsteak

    My favourite song of hers then and still my favourite song of hers now.

  7. songsthatarecatchy

    Whoever thumbsed down i say boo to you you fucks

  8. Jay Turkish

    My favorite song is 'All You Wanted' with 'Everywhere' as a close second. But this is the MBranch song I have most consistently stuck in my head.

    SenorTwoPhones

    Jay Turkish She’s a generational talent. It is absolutely ridiculous how good Michelle’s 1st 2 albums were.

    This song was one of many she has where it was good enough to be a single and didn’t make the cut

  9. stand up against cyberbullies

    Me as a kid: *plays this song* I want my high school years to sound like this. It would be so cool.
    Me in high school: uuuugh. Terrible music. Why?
    *Listens to Pink Floyd just to get away from the hits*

  10. & K

    Wow. I'm back in 2003, driving around my hometown with my high school boyfriend and friends!

    Michelle Branch sure rocked it in the day with some great songs every bit as good if not better than the music of today.

    Cartoons galore 213 She is so talented, if she were to do an edm album or anything out of ordinary for her, I think I would enjoy it. I know she did a thing with Timbaland for Mini. I was a bit surprised how good it was

    My favourite song as a teen. Listened to it in bed nights on end and eventually this track on 'The Spirit Room' would pause halfway through. Hopeful and passionate and a 'should've been' hit. I like Patrick M's comment: 'Real men love this song.'

  23. Onyinyechi Ukachukwu

    I love her songs

  24. Cassy Wright

    I’ve been looking for this for months!

  25. 八坂真尋

  26. corentin grandjean

    Nickel ça passe

  27. Al Sneade

    All these posts are at least a year old. Not sure anyone aware she just released a new album in April 2017? She's great as always

    SenorTwoPhones

    Michelle was great back then and she's as great now. She can do pop rock, country, and 80's synth pop. I will always be a huge fan of hers

  28. Me Myself &I

  32. kngar00

    So glad my dad was a big fan of her and introduced me to her music! I love it

  33. Kenny Kelly

    This and "I'd Rather be in Love" tie as my favorite Michelle Branch song. These two are just amazing. I fell in love with song the moment I listened to it late at night when I was 14 - listening to the whole album for the first time, not just the singles. Brings back memories.

    Matthew Keogh

    This is I'd rather be in love Kenny

    Dark Raiden

    +Kenny Kelly So...you like the same song twice huh?

    Kenny Kelly

    @Matthew Keogh I know. The first word of my comment acknowledges that.

    Kenny Kelly

    @TheJ024 Yeah, I meant to say "This and 'Sweet Misery.'" I had both songs on repeat when I made the comment and got confused which video I was on.

    Dark Raiden

    @Kenny Kelly Hahaha, I see; happens to me every time lol

    On the other hand, I wouldn't blame you for liking this song twice over; it's a fantastic song! :)

  34. Shelsea Megan

    I grew up with this song, and many more from her, my mom is a fan :)

  35. Patrick M

    Real men love this song.

    Dylan Thibert

    William

    Looks to me like I'm one of them ☺☺☺

    SenorTwoPhones

    @Cartoons galore 213 Real guys aren't afraid to admit they love Michelle's music

    tRumpet troll Killer

    I love everything she has done including The Wreckers

    Akira Menai

    @Al Sneade I'd love to see her make a huge comeback. And she would deserve it more than most of the trash performers today.
