Love lyrics

Valentine’s Day, and a chance to celebrate the things we love – like music. These are some of the most beautiful love related lyrics in my favourite songs.

The Maccabbees – Toothpaste Kisses

I’ll win your heart with a woop-a-woo / Pulling shapes just for your eyes / So with toothpaste kisses and lines /I’ll be yours and you’ll be mine

Natalie Prass – Christy

Does he?/ Slide each of his fingers down your back when he / When he puts a new record on

Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros – Home

Well, while you were sitting in the back seat smoking a cigarette you thought was gonna be your last, I was falling deep, deeply in love with you, and I never told you ’til just now!

Blur  To The End

Well you and I / Collapsed in love / And it looks like we might have made it / Yes, it looks like we’ve made it to the end

Flaming Lips – Do You Realize?

Do You Realize – that you have the most beautiful face/ Do You Realize – we’re floating in space / Do You Realize – that happiness makes you cry

Sharon Van Etten – For You

I do, I do / I’d wait for you / But you knew

The Shins – Simple Song

I swear that I dreamt / Your face on a football field / And a kiss that I kept / Under my vest

David Bowie – Heroes

We could steal time, just for one day / We can be Heroes, for ever and ever

Beach HouseReal Love

You know, you know, we belong by the stream, to the dawn

FoalsThis Orient

To glide past every city light / Like a satellite careering through the sky / This colour, this summer night

The CribsBe Safe 

I’m tethered to this post you’ve sunk in me / And every clear afternoon now I’ll think of you, up in the air / Twisting your heel, your knees up around me, my face in your hair / You scream so well, your smile so loud, it still rings in my ears

Group LoveTongue Tied

My eyes on your eyes / Like Peter Pan up in the sky

Camera Obscura Let’s Get Out Of This Country 

We’ll pick berries and recline / Let’s hit the road dear friend of mine/ Wave goodbye to our thankless jobs / We’ll drive for miles maybe never turn off /We’ll find a cathedral city you can be handsome I’ll be pretty

The CharlatansOne To Another

I’ll be at ease watching you sleep watching’ you smile / Love I adore you / Always looking for you
