  • My song is love
    Love to the lovers shone
    And it goes up
    You don't have to be alone

    Your heavy heart
    Is made of stone
    And it's so hard to see you, clearly
    You don't have to be on your own
    You don't have to be on your own

    And I'm not gonna take it back
    And I'm not gonna say I don't mean that
    You're the target that I'm aiming at
    And I'll get that message home

    My song is love
    My song is love I know
    And I'm on fire for you, clearly
    You don't have to be alone
    You don't have to be on your own

    And I'm not gonna take it back
    And I'm not gonna say I don't mean that
    You're the target that I'm aiming at
    But I'm nothing on my own
    Got to get that message home

    And I'm not gonna stand and wait
    Not gonna leave it until its much too late
    On a platform I'm gonna stand and say
    That I'm nothing on my own
    And I love you, please come home

    My song is love, is love I know
    And I've got to get that message home Writer/s: CHRISTOPHER ANTHONY JOHN MARTIN, GUY RUPERT BERRYMAN, JONATHAN MARK BUCKLAND, WILLIAM CHAMPION

  • Toy StoryI love this song. I see it as a direct message to me. I see his love. I'm a bit terrified that he wrote it naked but it is a beautiful song.
  • Andrea from Sønderborg, DenmarkHe wrote this naked. And you are right, Troy, so true.
  • Troy from Orem, UtWell I'm not sure what exactly Chris Martin is talking about in this song, but I interpereted it for myself and I love it. There's a girl I'm crazy about and I love her. I told her I love her but I'm not sure how she feels. Like the song says, ". . . and I'm not gonna take it back, and I'm not gonna say I don't mean that." Those words are so true.
