PALOMA FAITH - Only Love Can Hurt Like This

This song is from the album A Perfect Contradiction Outsiders' Edition(2014), released on 07 November 2014.
Even though the production lacked in certain areas, the main attraction of this song is her powerful vocals. The power and energy in her vocals were excellent, it made the choruses sound bombastic. The background music felt good, but it didn't have the power or the energy that I expected in a song like this. This song would have gotten a much better rating had it had a better production. Thanks to Caitlin for this great song suggestion.

[INTRO] Bb Gm Eb
[VERSE]
Bb
I tell myself you don't mean a thing,
Gm
And what we got, got no hold on me
    Eb                               Bb
But when you're not there I just crumble
Bb
I tell myself I don't care that much,
Gm
But I feel like I die 'til I feel your touch,

[CHORUS]
Eb                                  Bb
Only love, only love can hurt like this,
Bb                       Gm
Only love can hurt like this
Gm                        Eb
Must have been a deadly kiss
Eb                       Bb
Only love can hurt like this

[VERSE]
Bb
Say I wouldn't care if you walked away,
Gm
But every time you're there I'm begging you to stay,
Eb                              Bb
When you come close I just tremble
Bb
And every time, every time you go,
Gm
It's like a knife that cuts right through my soul

[CHORUS]
Eb                                  Bb
Only love, only love can hurt like this
                        Gm
Only love can hurt like this,
                          Eb
Must have been a deadly kiss,
Eb                       Bb
Only love can hurt like this,
Bb                       Gm
Only love can hurt like this

Gm                        Eb
Your kisses burn into my skin,
Eb                       Bb
Only love can hurt like this

[BRIDGE]
Gm
But it's the sweetest pain,
Eb
Burning hot through my veins,
F
Love is torture makes me more sure

[CHORUS]
                         Bb  Gm
Only love can hurt like this

[INSTRUMENTAL] Bb Gm Eb

[CHORUS]
Eb                        Bb
Only love can hurt like this,
                          Gm
Only love can hurt like this,
                         Eb
Must have been a deadly kiss,
Eb                       Bb
Only love can hurt like this,

                          Gm
Only love can hurt like this,
Gm                        Eb
Your kisses burn into my skin,
Eb                         Bb Gm
Only love can hurt like this,
Gm                         Eb
Only love can hurt like this,
Bb
Save me, save me,
      Gm
Only love, only love,
Gm                              Eb
'Cause only love can hurt like this
Eb                              Bb
And it must have been a deadly kiss
