Chris Stapleton - I Want Love Lyrics




I want love, but it's impossible
A man like me, so irresponsible
A man like me is dead in places
Other men feel liberated
I can't love, shot full of holes
Don't feel nothing, I just feel cold
Don't feel nothing, just old scars
Toughening up around my heart

But I want love, just a different kind
I want love, won't break me down
Won't brick me up, won't fence me in
I want a love, that don't mean a thing
That's the love I want, I want love

I want love on my own terms
After everything I've ever learned
Me, I carry too much baggage
Oh man I've seen so much traffic

But I want love, just a different kind
I want love, won't break me down
Won't brick me up, won't fence me in
I want a love, that don't mean a thing
That's the love I want, I want love

So bring it on, I've been bruised
Don't give me love that's clean and smooth
I'm ready for the rougher stuff
No sweet romance, I've had enough

Oh, a man like me is dead in places
Other men feel liberated

But I want love, just a different kind
I want love, won't break me down
Won't brick me up, won't fence me in
I want a love, that don't mean a thing
That's the love I want, I want love

I want love, just a different kind
I want love, won't break me down
Won't brick me up, won't fence me in
I want a love, that don't mean a thing
That's the love I want, I want love

Chris Stapleton I Want Love Comments
  1. matt vargas

    I always wondered if Elton was referring to the type of love you find in a Craigslist no strings attached posting.

  2. Raphael Quaglio

    Strippers & escorts is all you need. They provide an excellent service to lonely men.

  3. Novalee Vivier

    I want love.. but its impossible..😔

  4. Robin Brooks

    I love the orchestra playing along!

  5. larry gentry

    This guy could sing the phone book and he would draw a crowd of folks willing to buy tickets to hear it, one of the most amazing voices in the history of ever!

  6. Mark&vickie Guisasola

    Chris could sing the phonebook.....I'd Love it!!! ❤

  11. Kevin is here

    saw a comment saying this cover was bad, and it's not bad. In fact, it's so intimate and close, not as reflective as the original, but its' good in it's own way and it's great!

    This album is gonna make me love country, and at this point I won't mind.

  12. Patrick Thomas

    The orginal version was written for robert Downey jr his career had taken a turn for the worst elton helped him get back on his feet hes even featured in the video.

  26. al mar

    Chris Stapleton is the definition of an instant classic. Love his true old school country voice that's been missing in modern country. I'm not old myself but grew up on a lot of old school country and Chris Stapleton fits right in with all the old time greats.

  39. Kyle Rogers

    I've never seen him thinking mar.8th Knoxville would be a good one to see

  40. Marie Harrison

    His voice is the true amazing vocal,,,,,,,,,,,,not who's song he made better in my opinion and I love elton

  41. Marie Harrison

    Well I guess that means he's originally making it great

    Mike Beasley

    THIS IS AN ENTIRE ALBUM OF ELTON' S ORIGINAL SONGS BEING REIMAGINED AT HIS REQUEST! THERE'S NO COVER UNLESS THEY PUT ON THEIR OWN ALBUM. I'M NOT SURE HOW MANY SONGS ARE ON THE ALBUM BUT THE NUMBER OF SINGERS IS THE NUMBER OF SONGS SINCE EVERYONE SANG ONE SONG EACH. SONGS ON YOUTUBE THAT ARE NOT AVAILABLE FOR SALE DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A COVER. ONLY WHEN YOU BUY IT AS PART OF AN ALBUM OR AS A SINGLE WOULD MAKE IT A COVER THEN IT WOULD BE A COVER UNLESS THE ARTIST IN QUESTION. WROTE OR COWROTE THE SONG............DO YOU UNDERSTAND NOW................?

  42. Brandon Dvorak

    I want love, but it's impossible
    A man like me, so irresponsible
    A man like me is dead in places
    Other men feel liberated
    I can't love, shot full of holes
    Don't feel nothing, I just feel cold
    Don't feel nothing, just old scars
    Toughening up around my heart

    [Chorus]
    But I want love, just a different kind
    I want love, won't break me down
    Won't brick me up, won't fence me in
    I want a love, that don't mean a thing
    That's the love I want, I want love

    [Verse 2]
    I want love on my own terms
    After everything I've ever learned
    Me, I carry too much baggage
    Oh man I've seen so much traffic

  93. Juhlian Berntsson

    I want love, but it's impossible

    That's the love I want, I want love

    So bring it on, I've been bruised
    Don't give me love that's clean and smooth
    I'm ready for the rougher stuff
    No sweet romance, I've had enough
