This Love (Will Be Your Downfall)

  • Who are we to be emotional
    Who are we to play with hearts
    And throw away it all
    Who are we to turn each others heads
    Who are we to find ourselves in other people's beds
    I don't like the way I never listen to myself
    I feel like I'm on fire, I'm too shy to cry for help
    I don't think you know me much at all

    This love is be and end all
    This love will be your downfall
    This love is be and end all
    This love will be your downfall
    I'm feeling down about this love

    Who are you to make me feel so good
    Who are we to tell ourselves that we're misunderstood
    Oh who am I to say I'm always yours
    Who am I to choose the boy that everyone adores
    Oh I don't see a reason why we can't just be apart
    Now we're falling on each other like we're always in the dark
    Oh I don't think you warned me much at all

    This love is be and end all
    This love will be your downfall
    This love is be and end all
    This love will be your downfall
    This love is be and end all
    This love will be your downfall

    This love is not what you want
    This heart will never be yours
    This love is be and end all
    This love will be your downfall

    This love is be and end all
    This love will be your downfall Writer/s: ELLIE GOULDING, FINLAY GRAHAM DOW SMITH
