If That's Love - Laura Pausini



ahhhh a beautiful love song . . .
it describes my perfect kind of love!




~ If That's Love (Remix) | Laura Pausini ~



~ If That's Love (Original version) | Laura Pausini ~


The remix is my personal favorite!


Laura Pausini is an Italian pop singer, popular in several European, Latin American, and Middle Eastern countries, famed for her powerful voice, her romantic adult contemporary ballads and love songs. She is fluent in several languages and has recorded songs in Italian, Spanish and English. At the 2006 Grammy Awards, Pausini won Best Latin Pop Album for Escucha.


The song If That's Love peaked on the US Billboard Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart at #1, although the album From The Inside did not get the success she expected in the United States.

The lack of success has been blamed on Atlantic Records' promotion strategy, which promoted it as a dance album rather than a pop album. When she asked to have From the Inside promoted in line with what she considers her singing style, they refused. Pausini, self-confident from her success in Europe and Latin America, went back to Italy, leaving From the Inside to its destiny.



If That's Love
Lyrics

If you're gonna break my heart and leave
Make promises you don't intend to keep
If that's love then I want no part
But if you think that love should last for life
If you believe it's more than just one night
If that's love then you've got my heart

And if you'd rather hold on to your pride
Than wipe away the tears you made me cry
If that's love then I want no part
But if you're gonna be there when I need
Someone to just hold me tenderly
If that's love then you've got my heart

If the kinda love that you bring
Comes with no demands and no strings
If in your eyes I see for sure
That you're the one I'm waiting for
I'll give my heart, my soul, my everything

If I have to let go of my dreams
Become someone I never never thought I'd be
If that's love than I want, I want no part
But if you're gonna be that kind of man
Who's willing just to take me as I am
If that's love then you've got my heart

Tell me in your arms I'll be safe,
Where loneliness and fear have no place
The only thing you have to do
The only thing I ask of you
Is give your heart, your soul and your faith

And if you cannot give those things to me
Then I just have to tell you honestly
If that's love I want no part
But if you say you've finally found in me
The only place that you could ever be
If that's love you've got my heart
If that's love baby you've got my heart
If that's love
If that's love
If that's love baby you baby you
You've got my heart
