“Only Love Can Hurt Like This”
A Perfect Contradiction, Paloma Faith

There was a time that this song meant something else to me, now its meaning has changed a little. It seemed that I would hear “Only Love Can Hurt Like This” every single time I stepped into the car to travel to Chippenham. I mean every time. It’s a great song, so that was no hardship. But each time I heard it I felt that sneaking feeling of prescience. As if Paloma was trying to tell me something.

If only I had listened. To Paloma and to my own intuition.

Great song, melody, beat and sentiment. My favourite lyrics are the first and the last lines.
I tell myself you don’t mean a thing

and:


Save me, save me,
Only love, only love,
‘Cause only love can hurt like this
And it must have been a deadly kiss
