15 Songs Whose Lyrics Make Us Swoon

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at UPR chapter.

The fascinating thing about music is that some people listen to it because of the rhythm while others listen to it because of their lyrics. Lyrics have a way, like poetry, to convey our deepest desires, most inner thoughts and what we want people to know. Next up is a list that, because of one or two lines, are those songs that make us swoon. Most of them make us wish we had that SO to dedicate them to but – even if we don’t have that person – we still enjoy playing these songs while driving down country lanes.

1. Touch by Little Mix – “Just a touch of your love is enough to knock me off of my feet all week”


2. Superman by Joe Brooks*“If I could be your superman, I’d fly you to the stars and back again. ‘Cause every time you touch my hand and you feel my powers, running through your veins. But I can only write this song and tell you, that I’m not that strong. ‘Cause I’m no superman, I hope you like me as I am.”


3. The Sound by The 1975 “And I know when you’re around, ‘cause I know the sound, I know the sound of your heart.”


4. Can’t Help Falling in Love by Elvis Presley* –  “Take my hand, take my whole life too. Cause I can’t help falling in love with you.”


5. Work Song by Hozier* – “In the low lamp light I was free. Heaven and hell were words to me.”


6. The Only Exception by Paramore* “I’ve got a tight grip on reality but I can’t let go of what’s in front of me here”


7. Thinking Out Loud by Ed Sheeran –  “Baby now take me into your loving arms. Kiss me under the light of a thousand stars, place your head on my beating heart. I’m thinking out loud that maybe we found love right where we are, oh”


8. This I Promise You by NSYNC – “And I will take (I will take you in my arms) and hold you right where you belong. Till the day my life is through, this I promise you.”


9. Kid In Love by Shawn Mendes – “Maybe I’m just a kid in love, oh baby. If this is what it’s like fallin’ in love. Then I don’t wanna ever grow up”


10. Gravity by Sara Bareilles* –  “But you’re neither friend nor foe. Though I can’t seem to let you go. The one thing that I still know is that you’re keeping me down.”


11. Starving by Hailee Steinfield ft. Zedd*“I didn’t know that I was starving ’till I tasted you”


12. Sunday Morning by Maroon 5*“Singing someday it’ll bring me back to you, find a way to bring myself back home to you”


13. Clarity by Zedd ft. Foxes*“If our love is tragedy why are you my remedy? If our love is insanity why are you my clarity?”


14. Moonshine by Bruno Mars*“Moonshine take us to the stars tonight. Take us to that special place, that place we were the last time”


15. Stay by Zedd ft. Alessia Cara “I’ve never been the best at letting go. I don’t wanna spend the night alone. Guess I need you, and I need to.”
