Matt Cardle - It's Only Love Lyrics




It's a kick in the head so close your eyes
Some say it's dead, but we're alive
And it has no use anymore

It's a losing game that I won't play
I know full well, it isn't here to stay
It has no use anymore

Just get a hold of your heart and set it on fire
You don't need it now, you'll be alright cause

Did you think it would hold you?
Did you think it would carry you?
Did you think it would save you?
Did you think it would see you through?
It's only love, it's only love

Don't let it push you to your knees
You don't have to fall, lean on me
It has no use anymore

Just get a hold of your heart and set it on fire
You don't need it now, you'll be alright 'cause

Did you think it would hold you?
Did you think it would carry you?
Did you think it would save you?
Did you think it would see you through?
It's only love, it's only love

Did you think it would hold you?
Did you think it would carry you?
Did you think it would save you?
Did you think it would see you through?
It's only love, it's only love

It won't hold you
It won't carry you
It won't save you
It won't see you through
It's only love, it's only love

Did you think it would hold you?
Did you think it would carry you?
Did you think it would save you?
Did you think it would see you through?
It's only love, it's only love

It won't hold you
It won't carry you
It won't save you
It won't see you through
It's only love, it's only love

  16. ronniegeorge10

    one of my favourite songs (and music videos), especially as I can't stand the cack (X) factor, and love the fact the X factor distanced themselves from him because he basically told them to go f... themselves and did what he wanted to do.

  17. Grey Line

  27. Marlon Wong Sioe

    I really love the music and the voice, but I wish the lyrics were different. If the lyrics were as below I would probably listen to the song all day long. :) "It's holy love": It's a spark in your heart, so close your eyes. Some say it's dead, but it's alive. And it has to shine evermore. It's beyond each game, I'll ever play. I know full well, it is here to stay. It has to shine, evermore. Just get a hold on year heart, and set it on fire. You do need it now, you'll be alright cause. Don't you know it will hold you? Don't you know it will carry you? Don't you know it will save you? Don't you know it will see you through? It's holy love, it's holy love. Let it now bring you on your knees. You don't have to fall, lean on me. It has to shine evermore. Just get a hold on your heart, and set it on fire. You do need it now, you'll be alright cause. Don't you know it will hold you? Don't you know it will carry you? Don't you know it will save you? Don't you know it will see you through?It's holy love, it's holy love. Don't you know it will hold you? Don't you know it will carry you? Don't you know it will save you? Don't you know it will see you through? It's holy love, it's holy love. It will hold you. It will carry you. It will save you. It will see you through. It's holy love, it's holy love. Don't you know it will hold you? Don't you know it will carry you? Don't you know it will save you? Don't you know it will see you through? It's holy love, it's holy love. It will hold you. It will carry you. It will save you. It will see you through. It's holy love, it's holy love. Lyrics altered by: Marlon Wong Sioe

    Julia68yt

    +M Wong Sioe Go ahead. Nothing keeps you from covering it.
    Yet it's not how Matt felt when he wrote it. Love is an abstract concept that will absolutely _not_ save you from anything nor does it anything for you - unless you yourself fill it with meaning while life happens all around you.
    And if you listen to the lyrics this becomes pretty apparent within the lines "Some say it's dead but we're alive" and "you don't have to fall, lean on me".
    It's exactly because of regarding love as some form of devine intervention, where you just have to wish hard enough to make your situation better, that so many people fail in achieving it. Love is in your actions ... not a passive confession of faith.

    Pendragon1987

    +Julia68yt  Hi Julia, I respect the song as it is. The lyrics I've posted say something about what the song triggers in me. I partly agree with you about love. Love is meaning, I would say. But we won't experience it till we allow it. The phrases you refer to, (at least the phrase "you don't have to fall, lean on me") in the song presumes that there is something outside love that can be alive and help us. I think without love there isn't really life. But I'm not interested in having a discussion with you on this. :) :) :D I agree that love has to do with actions. :) For me changing the lyrics and posting them was an act of love. :) :D

  28. dwena39

    This is an awesome song. I really wished he was promoted and his music played here in the US.

    Julia68yt

    +dwena39 Look up KGUP1065FM :)

  29. Dan Gray

    love it

  30. Diego Perez Perea

    Amazing song, Matt.

  31. Sterre Eliza

    Altough I love this song and think Matt has a great voice I aslo can't believe he won x-factor. I don' t think it went really fair that night.

    Julia68yt

    +Sterre Eliza Well, file a complaint. I'm sure the TV police will be happy to look into it... like 5 years later :p
    And into the week before that and the week before that one and the week before aaaaand .... cause he kinda topped the voting right from the start.

  32. Hana Knavova

    Love this song and this video as well! Fantastical!

  33. Eugene Willsey

    I've liked Matt from his 2010 X factor first audition and the boot camp performance sealed the deal.range and focal clarity. outstanding . and if you say he can't sing. record sales say different.

  34. Adam Covfefe

    He has a 1979-1981 Steve Perry Voice

  35. EJ Y

    So good..I can't explain!!

    EJ Y

    @***** reminds me of the scene from Forest Gump

    Julia68yt

    @eunjung yu That's the imagery Matt was going for :)

  36. Maud Kennedy

    Even my hamster is a Matt's fan! Especially of this song! <3

    Julia68yt

    @Maud Kennedy How can you tell?

    Maud Kennedy

    He's all excited every time I put this song!

    ÔÃśiś _29

  37. ScrittiSparkle

  42. fetish master

  43. Art Vautour-Toole

    For us this is his best of all time, Great song and better video 

  44. Art Vautour-Toole

    Love his ass when he started for sure

  45. reeree12

    Don't get it...to me he sounds like a girl. Given he is cute but not a fan of his voice regardless of the songs powerful lyrics.

    Julia68yt

    You're free to not listen to it. So what's there to understand? He's not promoted to death, neither on radio/tv nor by itunes or youtube banners that jump in your face at every corner. The solution is just a click away.

  46. Cottonwood

    Where was this filmed?

    Julia68yt

    @wsharp2005 California. Check the "making of". It's on his channel, too :)

    Cottonwood

    Thank you.  !

  47. Ana Maria Corrêa Paixão

    Ótima voz, linda música, amei.

  48. kanadjanka100

    Matt is on "Fire" !!!

  49. Ruth Naranjo-quigley

    Matt is really so Good !

    myecox

    More so live 👍

    myecox

  50. Daniel Holmes

    This guy is so good

  51. Val Horn

    love it!

  52. Susie Snowcap

    Matt has an amazing voice, able to hit high C with little effort.. He is a superb tenor with a vocal range around B2-F5.. There are few singers outside of opera that can sing falsetto with such purity.. The fact that he also writes most of his own music, can sing a wide range of genres, from pop to blues to ballads and also plays many of the instruments on his arrangements goes to show he is a talent to be reckoned with in the future.. One can only hope that, thanks to his fans and YouTube, he will continue to further his career and becomes as well know in the USA as he is in Britain..

    Ricardo Hernández

    Nice music

    Iris Enamorado

    Susie Snowcap
    Yes, I am waiting here in Indiana for him.

  53. Jayne Peitavino

    great song,plus this voice is flawless

  54. nuimaleko7

    Matt got a lot of flack for doing a song in such a strong 80s style when this came out 2 years ago, but more and more artists are reaching back to the 80s for inspiration and everybody loves it. Just goes to show that Matt is ahead of the curve.

  55. James Cook

    Good voice, but wouldn't have guessed a man sang this.

    Julia68yt

    Things like that tend to happen when it comes to Matt :D
    Imagining a woman with this kind of voice, tho, scares the hell outta me.

  56. myecox

    Fantastic vocals

  57. mooominty

    Love this, one of many brilliant songs from the album The Fire! :)

  58. Danny

    wow it's just awesome, I love the power of this song how it sounds!

  59. francesca ellis

    Bloody hell, it is such a shame that what could of been such a real individual singer could be reduced by such a shit vid, shame on them

    Julia68yt

    Them? You mean those who hold the copyrights, production rights, had the idea for the video and coughed up the costs for director and crew? Have a look at the description and find out who that might be.

  60. Kansas Jack

    The only couples that DONT have arguments, disagreements, fights...are the dead ones. We've all been there at some point.

  61. Splurge24

    look at all those thin white people (and the token guy) walking with matt cardle!  you walk that street, matt cardle.

    drhouse1100

    Huh? You make no sense....and it's a road.

  62. xitah7

    Loved the fact that gay couples were also represented! Love you Matt! 

    Julia68yt

    @Sukyhoi Matt very clearly says "We gotta put this fire out!" on the track "The Fire" that he stuck right after "It's Only Love" on the album  LOL!! :))

    Sukyhoi

    ahhhhhh! see! this is what a well produced album should be like hahaha

    Julia68yt

    Well, it's a very funny coincidence anyway :D Great song, Check it out. Interesting guitar riffs :)

    Sukyhoi

    Cool thanks for recommending.

    Julia68yt

    You know, it really is freaky how much that song fits the scene in this video :) Never thought of it in this way.
    "You held me over the fire. Would you burn me till there's nothing left?"

  63. S S

    you still do painting???? I need my bathroom and kitchen done!!! bring your hat, and uh you don't need to wear anything else !!!! Loved your first audition!!

  64. Renee' Ennis

    what can I say!?  LOVE..... Matt  you are an amazing singer.

  65. Misty Hall

    Oh how i adore this song!

  66. Rainbow Sam

    Most amazing upcoming artist

  67. Sorcha Sevenwaters

    Im in love

  68. Jeff King

    Would someone mind sharing their interpretation of this song with me? As I understand it, I am getting the impression that he is saying not to be in love. Or is it that you shouldn't trust love? Or maybe when you're in love don't depend on it to do the impossible, just embrace it? Those are three thoughts I had that were on their own level of optimism. 

    Julia68yt

    I think it's indeed about not trusting, and depending on, love. Well, love in its abstract form, that is. Yet if you listen to the lyrics more carefully it also says "You don't have to fall, lean on me". And that again is ... love. Only in a way more profound manner.

    Jeff King

    @Julia68yt Awesome, thank you :]

    nuimaleko7

    I think it is about the constant confusion in western society between romantic love and real love.

    juan enamorado

    This song described people with a broken heart. They need to feels love for themselves, after the loss of a relationship. This is my understanding of the lyrics of this beautiful song.

    francesca ellis

    Umm you no what... You should get on with your life

  69. astryd_may

    That's it, I'm falling in love with Matt

  70. astryd_may

    That's it, I'm falling in love with Matt

  84. LODS ANDRE

    Matt is Matt and he is the only one. Very nice song and videos. Go on !!!!! We love you (from France)

  85. Hana Knavova

    Fantastic song and video!Love it!

  86. lizzymoore54

    LOVE the lyrics to this song, It's Only Love. I think this is the only song, that  I can recall, about love, that puts love into perspective! Thanks for that, Matt. Most of us desire love so deeply that we loose our perspective and become devastated at love lost instead of enjoying the love we have for someone at the height of it. Good, good on you again, Mr. Matt Cardle!

  87. Trọng Nghĩa Nguyễn

    I like your voice

    I study French and have been sharing your videos with people around the world on a chat board for people learning different languages. People from France, Canada, Puru, Australia and even Turkey. They all love your music. :)

  95. Julia68yt
