The first flush of youth was upon you when our eyes first met And I knew that to you and into your life I had to get I felt light-headed at the touch of this stranger's hand An assault my defenses systematically failed to withstand
'Cause you came at a time When the pursuit of one true love in which to fall Was the be all and end all
Love is only a feeling (Drifting away) When I'm in your arms I start believing (It's here to stay) But love is only a feeling Anyway
The state of elation that this unison of hearts achieved I had seen, I had touched, I had tasted and I truly believed
That the light of my life Would tear a hole right through each cloud that scudded by Just to beam on you and I
Love is only a feeling (Drifting away) When I'm in your arms I start believing (It's here to stay) But love is only a feeling Anyway, anyway
Love is only a feeling (Drifting away) And we've got to stop ourselves believing (It's here to stay) 'Cause love is only a feeling Anyway

Zane from Kenosha, WiAddy, you put that very well about liking modern music with the classic vibe
Addy from Fort Myers, FlMatt, American Idol is for a single singer. Not a band. And also, It's not a ripoff, do the 70's or 80's claim right's to music like that, or are you just an ignorant whiner who has nothing to do but go comment bands you don't like. You probably haven't even heard any of their music. The Darkness is where it's at if your looking for modern music with that classic vibe.
Ty from Kitchener, Canadait doesnt matter if their a ripoff of 70s bands; their still way better than any of the other crap in music today.
Matt from New York, NyThe Darkness suck big time - they are a complete rip off of hard rock bands of 1970's and 80's, completely unoriginal in every way shape and form. I wish they went on American Idol or the X factor - they would be laughed at!!!
Stacey from Nowra, Australiais this the song with the filmclip like bon jovi's with the cliff? rock on big day out! rock on the darkness
The Darkness Rock from Millmerran, AustraliaThis film was shot in The blue mountains in Australia. My country. The Darkness know where to shoot their films. The song is the second The Darkness song I ever heard. The first being I believe in a thing called love.
Bill from Warshington, DcActually this is a song of conflicting thought; On one hand he wants to believe in the existence of love, but has perhaps become hardened from past experience and realizes the inherent danger of "falling in love." It's inconclusive as to whether love is real or not, but the pain we all experience at love's end or in its course, is, empirically, undeniable. Rather then experience that pain, Mr. Hawkins implies, it's better to convince one's self that it is "only a feeling."
Luke from Maple Grove, MnWow Justin Hawkins has one of the highest voices ever
Aimee from Newcastle, United StatesThe Darkness is a gorgeous, out-there glam rock ensemble with a most perfect song. I believe Love Is Only A Feeling doesn't have as negative a meaning as the title might otherwise suggest. The vocalist tells of why he believed in love, what time of life he was at, and says that "love is only a feeling (drifting away)...love is only a feeling (anyway)" which are probably the most telling lines, because he is trying to tell himself that love is only a feeling, and forget the pain that ultimately comes with love. I don't think he truly believes that 'love is only a feeling.' If anyone knows of any other bands that are like the Darkness I would love to know so I can check out some of their songs! And I didn't know that the Blue Mountains was the location for the videoclip! That's awesome. -Aimee
Jimmy from Byblos Lebanon, OtherGreat song , shot in a wild mountains where Rock belongs !!!! (Like Bonjovi blaze of Glory)
Andy from Lincoln, Englandthis is absolutely gorgeous when they perform it live
Anonymousthe video was shot at the blue mountains in nsw australia. they were in the country touring the big day out festival that travels annually across australia. the band wanted a video that was on the edge
Charlie from Thomaston, Dcfinally finally, thank god! a darkness song!!!!!
