#TheShuffle: Bleeding Love – Leona Lewis…

Hi guys!

bleeding-love

Welcome to another exciting episode of The Shuffle. Today’s song is one of my all time favourites. The lyrics of the song gets me every single time. Here is a little trivia from Wikipedia: “Bleeding Love” is a song performed by British singer Leona Lewis, who released it from her 2007 debut studio album, Spirit. Jointly written and composed by Jesse McCartney and Ryan Tedder, and produced by Tedder, the song is the album’s lead single; officially, it was Lewis’s official second single, and followed “A Moment Like This.” (A Moment Like This is also another fantastic song, my best friend Sarah, has the song pegged as her first dance at her wedding)

Anyhoo, another funfact is that, Ryan Tedder, from One Republic, initially worked on this song for his himself but when he reviewed the lyrics, he decided that it would be better and less violent if a woman sang it. And i agree. If he had done this song it would have been too much. Let’s look at the lyrics a bit, so you can feel me.

“Bleeding Love”

Closed off from love
I didn’t need the pain
Once or twice was enough
And it was all in vain
Time starts to pass
Before you know it you’re frozen

But something happened
For the very first time with you
My heart melted to the ground
Found something true
And everyone’s looking round
Thinking I’m going crazy

But I don’t care what they say
I’m in love with you
They try to pull me away
But they don’t know the truth
My heart’s crippled by the vein
That I keep on closing
You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open

Trying hard not to hear
But they talk so loud
Their piercing sounds fill my ears
Try to fill me with doubt
Yet I know that their goal
Is to keep me from falling

But nothing’s greater than the rush that comes with your embrace
And in this world of loneliness
I see your face
Yet everyone around me
Thinks that I’m going crazy, maybe, maybe

But I don’t care what they say
I’m in love with you
They try to pull me away
But they don’t know the truth
My heart’s crippled by the vein
That I keep on closing
You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open

And it’s draining all of me
Oh they find it hard to believe
I’ll be wearing these scars
For everyone to see

I don’t care what they say
I’m in love with you
They try to pull me away
But they don’t know the truth
My heart’s crippled by the vein
That I keep on closing
You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open and I

Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
I keep bleeding
I keep, keep bleeding love
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
You cut me open and I
Keep bleeding
Keep, keep bleeding love
