The Most Romantic Song In The World? Let’s Discuss…

A couple months ago, I was going through some artists and bands on ITunes and came across this track from the band, The Script. I imagine it was right around the time “If You Ever Come Back” dropped and I went to see what else the band had to offer. Anyway, I listened to this song, which is the first track on their album “Science & Faith” and I’ve been listening to the words and I’ve decided…this might be the most romantic song I’ve ever heard. Oh I know there are other “love” songs such as Dolly Parton/Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You” and just about every song Lionel Ritchie ever sang but THIS song is what true love is really about. Check it out and tell me that if you’ve ever heard something MORE romantic than this and if you have then you are obviously a woman. Because, as a man, THIS is what it’s all about…

I’ve been kicked right down
I’ve been spat in the face
I’ve been pulled, weighed down
To the lowest place
I’ve been lied to, shamed
I have been disgraced
Been ex-communicated from every holy place
I’ve been beat up and robbed
I’ve been left for dead
For the way I look
For the things I said
When trouble thinks it’s found us
The world falls down around us
I promise baby you won’t ever
You won’t ever feel a thing

Cause I will take it on the chin
for you
So lay your cuts and bruises over my skin
I promise you won’t feel a thing
Cause everything the world could throw
I’ll stand in front. I’ll take the blow for you.
For you.

I’ve been cleared on the street
I’ve been left in the cold
Had my dreams held up
Had them shot full of holes
I’ve been laughed at, burnt, been the butt of the joke
I’ve been lit up in flames
I have gone down in smoke
I’ve been stabbed in the back
While they promised the earth
Tried to keep my head high
For all I am worth
Outside our double glazing, 
I know a war is raging
I promise baby you won’t ever
You won’t ever feel a thing

Yeah.
And if I fall here
At least you know my dear that I would die for you
Promise you won’t ever feel a thing
And if I fall here
At least you know my dear that I would die for you
Promise you won’t ever feel a thing

Yeah everything the world could throw
I’ll take the sticks, I’ll take the stones for you
For you

  1. Way better than the song where the guy wants his chick to lay on a grenade for him. There is something to be said for chivalry after all.
