8 Mar This Year's Love Lyrics: This year's love had better last / Heaven knows it's high time / I've been waiting on my own / Too long / And when you hold me like you do / It feels so right, oh now / I start to. This year's love had better last. Heaven knows it's high time. I've been waiting on my own too long. When ya hold me like you do. It feels so right. I start to forget. How my heart gets torn. When that hurt gets flowin. Feeling like ya can't go on. Turning circles and time again. It cut like a knife oh now. If ya love me, got to know for. This years love it better last. Heaven knows it's high time. I've been waiting on my own too long. And when you hold me like you do. It feels so right oh now. I start to forget. How my heart gets torn. When that hurt gets thrown. Feeling like you can't go on. Turning circles and time again. Cut like a knife oh no. If you love me I got.

To anyone who is alone. General Comment It is definitely a song with multiple meanings. Clearly it is about the fear of being hurt in a relationship.

However, being a David Gray song, it has a lot more to it than that. One possible meaning is this: David Gray's use of the second person you suggests that he is explaining his love to someone i.
Of course, he doesn't just explain it, he lavishes the song with suggestions of differing interpretations of love. The first verse has the wonderful explanation of the situation of his fear and of how much in love he is this time. Concepts that we can all identify with. The first part of the second verse is a further explanation of the pain that he has suffered over the years.
Click here then asks for assurance and proof of her love, before he will let her in and allow himself to love her without restraint. I imagine, somewhere between the second and the third verses he realizes that his request for assurance is in fact control and a ridiculous request i. Hence the change in attitude in the third verse which appears to be the REAL declaration of love, in that he has grown beyond the fears and is prepared to give ALL his love including that which he was withholding in the second verse.
What I love about this reversal is that there is also a suggestion that he telling her to overcome her fears too. That perhaps, we all have fears of being hurt, of commitment etc.
Wonderful views of love. General Comment David talks about some pretty painful stuff heartbreak, constant uncertainty in relationshipsbut i doubt this song was written as a representation of what david might say to a new love interest. Its too raw for that. General Comment This song interests me very much. I think it's because I can see it in a few different ways. I think that the writer is just fed up with relationships and quite possibly the idea of love in general.
He's tried it before, and judging by the lyrics-- "When you hold me like you do It feels so right, oh now Start to forget how my heart gets torn When that hurt gets thrown" --he always ends up hurt. Sounds like he's got this routine of falling and getting hurt down to a science. And this time, he's obviously fallen pretty hard, or is thinking about falling pretty hard, for someone new.

When she holds him, it feels right. But he doesn't want to trust it. After all, the second he trusts it, he will open himself up to all kinds of vulnerability, and once again, he risks getting hurt. BUT I think he ultimately decides to risk feeling vulnerable again, and chaulks up his pride by saying, "this year's love- had better last.
I've been through this before.
This Year's Love (song)
And you know what, life goes on. This, THIS could be something terrific. Gray acknowledges vulnerability and a reluctance to act on something because of that vulnerability. However, I get the impression that in the context of this song, vulnerability is an obstacle as opposed to a roadblock.
I believe he gets past it, and pursues the relationship. It's so refreshing to hear a song where the vulnerability emotion doesn't just loom there dooming something. It's acknowledged, and then dismissed. Cause it takes something more this time, More than sweet sweet lies Before I open up my This Years Love Had Better Last and fall.
His way of figuring out if this is indeed worth pursuing. If she doesn't love him, he doesn't want to get hurt all for naught. Cause the second way, for me, amplifies the idea that see more trying to talk himself into going for it.
General Comment This song is so beautiful. I heard it for the first time on the movie "The Girl Next Door" and it just made the entire scene so perfectly romantic. Song Meaning I think what I like best about this song is the combination of hope and the underlying despair -- the song is all about the willingness to take another shot at love, the intense need for it, the glory of the process combined with the fear of pain, and yet, ultimately, the singer doesn't really believe it's going to work.
It is, after all, "this year's" love, which means there was last year's love, and that there will probably be next year's love after this. Probably my favorite David Gray song, and there are many that I really love. General Comment i agree. General Comment I loooooooooooooooooooooooove this song.
General Comment This Years Love Had Better Last Gray is, for me, one of the greatest writers of all time This Years Love Had Better Last in now to add this track to your mixtape!
