Katharine McPhee - Love Strikes Lyrics




Summer fades and winter takes its dreary place
That’s what I have seen
Love is failure and I never win the race
That’s what I believed

If love strikes once and one time only
All I’d have is broken dreams inside of me
But my hands trace love hearts around you
And what you see is how my color scream
That love is striking me

Thought I’d spend the greatest years curled up alone
Without someone to kiss my neck
Thought I’d feel the winter cold more than anyone
‘Cause I wouldn’t have the family that I dreamed since I was born

If love strikes once and one time only
All I’d have is broken dreams inside of me
But my hands trace love hearts around you
And what you see is how my color scream
That love is striking me

You came late, but I left the light on for you, babe
I never let my hurt burn my hope away
And now I give you all that I saved

Summer fades and winter takes its dreary place
But now look at the smile on my face

His love, love is striking me

If love strikes once and one time only
All I’d have is broken dreams inside of me
But my hands trace love hearts around you
And what you see is how my color scream
Love is striking me

  10. Patrick Farrelly

    One of the most underrated love songs of the last 10 years. This song literally pushes tears out of my eyes every time

  11. Michael Poyntz

    Katharine is one of the most under promoted voices in the music/entertainment industry today! You wonder what the heck is wrong with her agent cuz they sure are not getting her to centre stage where she TRULY belongs.

  12. 망고스틴

    Summer fades and winter takes its dreary place
    That’s what I have seen
    Love is failure and I never win the race
    That’s what I believed

    If love strikes once and one time only
    All I’d have is broken dreams inside of me
    But my hands trace love hearts around you
    And what you see is how my color scream
    That love is striking me

    Thought I’d spend the greatest years curled up alone
    Without someone to kiss my neck
    Thought I’d feel the winter cold more than anyone
    ‘Cause I wouldn’t have the family that I dreamed since I was born

    If love strikes once and one time only
    All I’d have is broken dreams inside of me
    But my hands trace love hearts around you
    And what you see is how my color scream
    That love is striking me

    You came late, but I left the light on for you, babe
    I never let my hurt burn my hope away
    And now I give you all that I saved

  13. Nona Taylor

    I adore Katherine she is so talented. Don't be upset about her music career seemingly not skyrocketing. Just look at  how many doors have opened up TV for her. Longevity is the key. The best is yet to come. Fan forever.

  14. Lucas Schlüter

    Scorpion <3

  15. musicalman1995

    Prefer Ginny Blackmore's original

  16. Rocio Mendoza

    Scorpion 😻

  17. Jo W

    This song...❤❤❤😭😭😭

  18. Andrew Croach

    Thank you for this song Katharine ☺. Currently experiencing the lyrics & it feels so damn good.

  19. Luis Carlos Brugnoli

    sweet sweet

  20. Kiji Art

    Her voice would be so gorgeous in a rock band. Why does everyone with a great voice do pop?

  21. Thomas Hsi

    "Spirit of Ayla...calm down! Star Trek coming out the Summer of 2016 and The Clan of the Cave Bear...both with 'your' White Girl make-up...shows that you are still alive in Spirit...and will you be coming to this Earth? Or...another? You were the First Anomaly! White Girl in caveman times does it all!"

  22. diamondheart

    This song is so so soooooo beautiful!!!! One word: Waige! ;)

  23. Thomas Hsi

    Hey Barack Hussein Obama, hey Donald Trump, Hey Hillary Rodham Obama...hey Hollywood, hey LA Reid...I checked out "The Best Song Lyrics for 2015"...and you know something Ellen, George S.,...the 'human' world is full of shitty idiots! I am too fucking great for you!

  24. Thomas Hsi

    Thank you Billy Joel because you recognize that uncompensated talent and ability freely shared, or even wrongly stolen, is one of the most unrighteous conditions, ever! Thank you...Piano Man!

  25. P.G. Hudsonjr

    A fine story teller... :)

  26. Ailsa D

    Love her voice, love her as Paige in Scorpion and she is just all round fabulous in every single way

  27. Arumi Zain

    she might be famous like adele with hits song

  28. Danny Hidalgo

    Why is this song not being promoted as a single?! This is Kat's best song in years. The fact that she hasn't performed this live is ludicrous. Here's to hoping...

  29. Ri Ranjo

    I hate that she's not getting the views she deserves...

  30. Oscar Loza Aguilar

    i relate to this in so many levels and im crying

  31. Joey Valliere

    I gotta say...I'm pissed. As a long time Kat fan (is there any question at this point that she should have won her season of Idol over Hicks?) I've had mixed reactions to her albums up to this point, but I've always loved this girl. Well, Hysteria is an AMAZING ALBUM. I really wish it would have made her blow up. She deserves it so much. This song is simply stunning, and should be heard by everyone. I hope she knows that she's got some mega fans who love her, despite what the "numbers" might say.

  32. Dhari Haji

    who ever said there is no such thing as perfection.....F you man

  33. Karla Mariana

    i really love that song <3

  34. Derrik Grella

    This song is Amazing! Kat's voice is so rich and glorious.. She's so underrated.

  35. airforcemama

    I hope she really loves Elyes Gabel and doesn't hurt him. He's seem like an amazing guy.

    dianna G

    +airforcemama she loves him sooo so much. you can just tell. watch any of their interviews or look at pics of them together, she's totally smitten.

  36. ellen rose

    i love you so much. i really really like you voice and soul. and i love your music style and your feeling. your mind is reach me.

  37. Sunshine Love

    amazing! <3

  38. Awkward Kiddo

    She's back! Amazing song. Love it. Been waiting for this for so long! Way to go Kat!

  39. Sawan Challani

    BAE SINCE 2009

  40. Phuong Anh

    I listened to the whole album several times but I didn't even enjoy any songs. I don't know why... Does anyone feel let down? Like we had Over it and Terrified and other beautiful songs and I'm not saying these songs aren't beautiful I just don't FEEL them!

    Hysteria by Katharine McPhee

  42. burlfish76

    I feel like her management or someone is keeping her down.. With her talent there's no reason why she couldn't be super successful.. its the random songs and whomever is backing her who is slacking.. it's truly a shame cause she has such great potential on so many levels. I know she was on a TV show but you know what I'm saying.. she should be more famous than she is and I hope she gets what's deserved and soon :)

    rami assad

    few years ago her manager screwd her over and she stopped.. now she is back

    Zeenat Dollie

    Totes agree !! 100%

    P.G. Hudsonjr

    +burlfish76 STAY TRUE. There's more to SUCCESS than just$$$$, especially when it comes too young and too soon. It's better appreciated the more time you take to earn it. You'll know when you've earned it and NO ONE can take that experience from you.

    L John

    burlfish76 you been brain washed by Hollywood. Determine famous

    Cody Morando

    burlfish76 agreed

  43. Jay Veerayano
