My Kind of Love

Charted: 17
  • I can't buy your love, don't even wanna try
    Sometimes the truth won't make you happy
    So I'm not gonna lie
    But don't ever question that my heart beats only for you
    It beats only for you

    I know I'm far from perfect
    Nothing like your entourage
    I can't grant you any wishes
    I won't promise you the stars
    But don't ever question that my heart beats only for you
    It beats only for you

    'Cause when you given up
    When no matter what you do, it's never good enough
    When you never thought that it could ever get this tough
    That's when you feel my kind of love

    And when you're crying out
    When you fall and then can't pick
    You're heavy on the ground
    When the friends you thought you had haven't stuck around
    That's when you feel my kind of love

    You won't see me at the parties
    I guess I'm just no fun
    I won't be turning up the radio
    Singing baby you're the one
    But don't ever question that my heart beats only for you
    It beats only for you

    I know sometimes I get angry and I'd say what I don't mean
    I know I keep my heart protected, far away from my sleeve
    But don't ever question that my heart beats only for you
    It beats only for you

    'Cause when you given up
    When no matter what you do, it's never good enough
    When you never thought that it could ever get this tough
    That's when you feel my kind of love

    And when you're crying out
    When you fall and then can't pick
    You're heavy on the ground
    When the friends you thought you had
    Haven't stuck around
    That's when you feel my kind of love

    'Cause when you given up
    When no matter what you do, it's never good enough
    When you never thought that it could ever get this tough
    That's when you feel my kind of love Writer/s: EMELI SANDE, EMILE HAYNIE, DANIEL TANNENBAUM
