Love’s Gonna Knock You Down – Ilana Charnelle

From the album Play Nice (2018).
You said that you were a straight shooter
Said ‘When I take a shot, babe, I just don’t miss’
What I did not know as I gave you my bow
Was when you hit somebody, you use your fists

Love is a full-ring fighter, competing for the crown
Telling you forever, but beating you right now
And love’s gonna hit you harder when it’s got you on the ground
Now, it might look real pretty from the crowd
But love’s gonna knock you down

I pull my gloves on, gonna take you on
And every blow I take hits right in my chest
Should’ve known better than to take on a winner
Coz when it comes to heartbreak
Baby, you’re the best

Love is a full-ring fighter, competing for the crown
Telling you forever, but beating you right now
And love’s gonna hit you harder when it’s got you on the ground
Now, it might look real pretty from the crowd
But love’s gonna knock you down
Woo!

As that last bell’s gone, I’m taking you on
But when it comes to heartbreak
Baby, you’re the best

Love is a full-ring fighter, competing for the crown
Telling you forever, but beating you right now
And love’s gonna hit you harder when it’s got you on the ground
Now, it might look real pretty from the crowd
Said, now it might look real pretty from the crowd
But love’s gonna knock you down
Love’s gonna knock you down
