Lyrics for When Love Takes Over (feat. Kelly Rowland) by David Guetta:

Verse 1
It's complicated
It always is
That’s just the way it goes
Feels like I've waited so long for this
I wonder if it shows

Pre-Chorus
Head underwater
Now I can't breathe
It never felt so good
'Cause I can feel it coming over me
I wouldn't stop it if I could

Chorus
When love takes over, yeah
You know you can’t deny
When love takes over, yeah
'Cause something's here tonight

Verse 2
Give me a reason
I gotta know
Do you feel it too?
Can't you see me here on overload?
And this time, I blame you, mmm

Pre-Chorus
Looking out for you to hold my hand
It feels like I could fall
Now love me right like I know you can
We could lose it all

Chorus
When love takes over, yeah
You know you can’t deny
When love takes over, yeah
'Cause something’s here tonight

Post-Chorus
Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight
Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight
Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight
Tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight
And I'll be loving you all the time, it's true
'Cause I wanna make it right with you

Bridge
When love takes over
When love takes over
When love takes over
When love takes over
When love takes over
When love takes over
When love takes over
Over, over, over, over, over
Over, over, over, over, over

Outro
When love takes over, yeah
You know you can’t deny
When love takes over, yeah
'Cause something’s here tonight

Song Facts

On “Love Takes Over,” French EDM superstar David Guetta and American R&B singer Kelly Rowland join forces to celebrate the awesome power of love. The up-tempo dance-pop tune played a pivotal role in both of their careers, helping Guetta cross over the U.S. mainstream and inspiring Rowland to explore dance music on her subsequent third album, 2011’s Here I Am.

The tune was born when Rowland happened to catch one of Guetta’s DJ sets in the South of France. She was so moved by the instrumental version that she begged Guetta for the track. She told The Independent:

It brought tears to my eyes! After that, I asked him if I could have the track and I brought it with me to London. I wrote a song to it and I sent it back to him and next thing, it was history.

Although “Love Takes Over” wasn’t a massive U.S. pop hit, it reached #1 on the Dance Club Songs chart.
