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