This Love

Album: Songs About Jane (2002)
Charted: 3 5
  • I was so high, I did not recognize
    The fire burning in her eyes
    The chaos that controlled my mind
    Whispered goodbye as she got on a plane
    Never to return again
    But always in my heart

    This love has taken its toll on me
    She said goodbye too many times before
    And her heart is breaking in front of me
    I have no choice 'cause I won't say goodbye anymore, woah, woah, woah

    I tried my best to feed her appetite
    Keep her coming every night
    So hard to keep her satisfied
    Oh, kept playing love like it was just a game
    Pretending to feel the same
    Then turn around and leave again

    But, oh, this love has taken its toll on me
    She said goodbye too many times before
    And her heart is breaking in front of me
    I have no choice 'cause I won't say goodbye anymore woah, woah, woah

    I'll fix these broken things
    Repair your broken wings
    And make sure everything is alright
    My pressure on your hips
    Sinking my fingertips
    Into every inch of you
    'Cause I know that's what you want me to do

    This love has taken its toll on me
    She said goodbye too many times before
    Her heart is breaking in front of me
    I have no choice 'cause I won't say goodbye anymore

    This love has taken its toll on me
    She said goodbye too many times before
    My heart is breaking in front of me
    She said goodbye too many times before

    This love has taken its toll on me
    She said goodbye too many times before
    Her heart is breaking in front of me
    I have no choice 'cause I won't say goodbye anymore Writer/s: Jesse Royal Carmichael, Ryan Michael Dusick, James B. Valentine, Michael Allen Madden, Adam Noah Levine

  • Catherine from Glasgow, EnglandI thought this song was about him not being able to satisfy her sexually

    Sinking my fingertips
    Into every inch of you
    Cause I know that's what you want me to do"
