Real Love
Florrie Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

You′re so hard to read
You're the master of disguise

In your old blue jeans
You give me truth; you give me lies
You′re a mystery, but it's exactly what I like
What I like
I can't pin you down
You′re like catching open air

You make me laugh out loud, lying in your underwear
On your leather couch --I just wanna keep you there
Keep you there
All the voices in my head
Are pushing me right to the edge
If this is real love
Beatin′-like-a-thousand-drums love
Burnin'-like-the-hottest-sun love
You′re the only one I want

I want, I want real love
Hit-me-like-a-hurricane love
Feel-you-runnin'-through-my-veins love

You′re the only one I want

Want, want, want
(Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
(Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)
(Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh)

Real love, real love
All the little things --it's the smell of your cologne

Lying next to me, I breathe you in when I′m at home
Give me everything, I'm not afraid of the unknown
Of the unknown
All the voices in my head
Are pushing me right to the edge
If this is real love
Beatin'-like-a-thousand-drums love
Burnin′-like-the-hottest-sun love
You′re the only one I want

I want, I want real love
Hit-me-like-a-hurricane love
Feel-you-runnin'-through-my-veins love
You′re the only one I want
Want, want, want
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

Real love, real love
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Real love, real love
I'm not scared of much
Take the pleasure with the pain
Do it all for us

Won′t you meet me there halfway?
Don't be scared of love
Take the sunshine with the rain
Do it all for us
Do it all for us
If this is real love
Beatin′-like-a-thousand-drums love
Burnin'-like-the-hottest-sun love
You're the only one I want

I want, I want real love
Hit-me-like-a-hurricane love
Feel-you-runnin′-through-my-veins love
You′re the only one I want
Want, want, want
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh (real love)
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh (real love)
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh (real love)
Real love, real love
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh (real love)
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh (real love)




Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh (real love)
Real love, real love (oooh!)

You're so hard to read, you're the master of disguise
In your old blue jeans, you give me truth, you give me lies
You're a mystery, but it's exactly what I like
What I like

I can't pin you down, you're like catching open air
You make me laugh out loud, lying in your underwear
On your leather couch, I just wanna keep you there
Keep you there

All the voices in my head
Are pushing me right to the edge

If this is real love
Beating like a thousand drums, love
Burning like the hottest sun, love
You're the only one I want
I want, I want, real love
Hit me like a hurricane, love
Feel it running through my veins, love
You're the only one I want
Want, want, want

Real love, real love

All the little things, it's the smell of your cologne
Lying next to me, I breathe you in and I'm at home
Give me everything, I'm not afraid of the unknown
Of the unknown

Cause all the voices in my head
Are pushing me right to the edge

If this is real love
Beating like a thousand drums, love
Burning like the hottest sun, love
You're the only one I want
I want, I want, real love
Hit me like a hurricane, love
Feel it running through my veins
You're the only one I want
Want, want, want

Real love, real love
Real love, real love

I'm not scared of much
Take the pleasure with the pain
Do it all for us
Won't you meet me there halfway?
Don't be scared of love
Take the sunshine with the rain
Do it all for us
Do it all for us

If this is real love
Beating like a thousand drums, love
Burning like the hottest sun, love
You're the only one I want
I want, I want real love
Hit me like a hurricane, love
A fire running through my veins, love
You're the only one I want
Want, want, want

(Real love...)
Real love, real love...

After 6 years it still sounds fresh. They tell me that this song is from 2021 and I believe it. Its lyrics are amazing and catchy, it leaves you a great message and makes you want to dance it. Thank you for so much, sorry for so little Florrie :(

Antonio Escob

sounds and look fresh

Laura Neuzeth

It still puzzles me how Florrie is still such an underrated pop artist. This song sounds like it would do so well on the radio. I hope this explodes because Florrie deserves a huge hit after all the wonderful music that she's released over the years.

Asad Yawar

+Laura Neuzeth Her material is superb and you're spot on: Florrie deserves so much more success than she has attained thus far. It could, however, be argued that there is a question over her branding and identity. The videos are nowhere near the level of the songs: they don't really tell a story or include memorable iconography. In some ways she might be a victim of her own natural beauty: a lazy or unimaginative director will just let her look nice on camera (hardly a challenge!) and not think too hard about how to create something emblematic and shareable. The end result is that one of our national treasures is barely known outside a small-but-devoted fanbase.

Asad Yawar

+Laura Neuzeth Additionally, it may not help that her songs have intelligible, clever lyrics and that she is a seriously classy lady. These qualities can be a liability...

I discovered her through Topshop's Instagram! Seems like she's getting some exposure. They highlighted this new music video, so decided to check it out, and I really liked the song!

Thicc Tones

+Laura Neuzeth its because there is so much on the radio that sounds exactly like this

Laura Neuzeth

Jared Constable Exactly, that's why it's a bit odd. This could very well be put into any top 40 radio station's rotation because it goes well with the stuff that's out there. The radio station world is quite outdated but hopefully this can become somewhat of a viral pop hit.

She deserves more recognition for her work. This song is pleasant.
