This Love (Will Be Your Downfall) (3:54)

Cover of Bright Lights

From Bright Lights and 1 other release

“This Love (Will Be Your Downfall)” is the third track on Ellie Goulding’s debut album Lights.

Ellie said to Spinner UK: “I’m quite questioning, I suppose, but then I answer the questions as well. In one song I say ‘Who are we to be emotional, who are we to play with hearts and throw everything away?’ so I’m questioning human behaviour, asking why we act the way we do when we’re in love and infatuated with someone, but later in the song I offer some answers too. I’m a hopeless romantic, and I’m always thinking about what love is.”

To Sky Songs she said: “This Love is about cheating on the person you’re with, and questions why any of us do it.”

    Who are we to find ourselves in other people's beds? I guess if you haven't found love, you're looking for it. I'll spare the cliches. Ellie's voice is so sweet and delicate, almost fragile, that this is the perfect song for her. So vulnerable...yet she's turned my head.
