Song Lyric Sunday – Is This Love? by James Arthur

I usually know the artists I post on my blog, but in this case, I just ran across this singer last week. I hope you’ll all be proud of me for actually taking to Wikipedia and looking him up. James Arthur is a British singer/songwriter who won the 9th series of the X Factor in 2012. This song is featured on his first self-titled album that was released in 2013.

I have to say that I LOVE his voice and this song just got to me. I could probably listen to it over and over again and not get tired of it. Also, isn’t falling in love exactly like this sometimes? You think you know the old song and dance, but when you find that perfect match, it seems that everything is brand new.

I do hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

I must’ve walked these streets about a million times
I thought I knew them well but maybe I was blind
‘Cause everything’s brand new
Thought I knew my heartbeat but it was out of time
It’s like my lungs are opening for the first time
Ever since I met you
And I’m on my way now
Is this love, really love?
Is this love, really love?
I swear that I was heading down a darker road
You got through my guard when I was in safety mode
Darling you’re such a view
You’re pulling down my walls like you’re my only sun
You’re the one to blame, you hold a smoking gun
So take your aim and shoot
And I’m on my way now
Is this love? Really love?
Is this love? Really love?
I need to know, need to know
‘Cause I’ve never been this close
Is this love, is this love?
Really love, really love?
And all these demons I’m letting go
‘Cause I can see what is beautiful
It finally feels like I’m coming home
Is this love? Really love?
Is this love? Really love?
I need to know, need to know
‘Cause I’ve never been this close
Is this love, is this love?
Really love, really love?
And all these demons I’m letting go
‘Cause I can see what is beautiful
It finally feels like I’m coming home
Songwriters: James Arthur / Steve Robson / Claude Kelly
