About When Love Takes Over

"When Love Takes Over" is a song by French DJ-music producer David Guetta with vocals by Kelly Rowland from his fourth studio album, One Love. It was released as the lead single from the album on 21 April 2009 by Virgin Records (EMI France). The song was conceived when Guetta played the instrumental version during one of his DJ sets in summer 2008; American recording artist Kelly Rowland, who fell in love with the track, convinced Guetta to allow her to take it so that she could write and record vocals for it. It was co-written by Nervo. According to Rowland, the song inspired her to pursue a more dance-oriented sound for her album Here I Am (2011), while Guetta noted "When Love Takes Over" for providing the framework for his future musical explorations and inspiring him to experiment with more urban sounds. Guetta and Frédéric Riesterer produced the song with piano riffs and a melodic backing track. Veronica Ferraro mixed the song, focussing primarily on giving Rowland's vocals a magical and inspiring tone. Critics would later state that Rowland's vocals on "When Love Take Over" helped to establish herself as a solo vocalist. The song's lyrics carry a message of the euphoria one feels when in love with a significant other, while the production bears some similarities to Coldplay's 2002 hit single "Clocks."

Yeah
You know what it is
It's your man Travis
Gym class heroes
Kelly rowland
Oh so beautiful
Baby girl, stay up all night
Now tell 'em, show 'em how we do
Here we go! oh!

It's five o'clock am
And the party is still going strong
There's a conversation in the corner
Tell a friend, bring everyone
(c'mon, let's go)
Cos the fm music is groovin'
Folks getting down, getting down in their stocking feet
Sleepy eyes are peeping
(they're watching baby)
From the window across the street

And it looks like daylight's gonna get me up again
(damn right and I'm lovin' every minute)
Most people like getting up when I'm just getting in
(i'll be back in three days like paris's jail sentence)
And oh, it's the only only time
It's the only time when I can unwind

I swore to myself time and time and time again
That I would give up the night-life
(yeah right)
Start laying in
But it ain't easy, no no
(no no no)
Saying no to my friends
(that's right)
Cos the real, cos the real set don't get started
Til everyone else is in

And it looks like daylight's gonna get me up again
(damn right and I'm lovin' every minute)
Most people like getting up when I'm just getting in
(i'll be back in three days like Paris's jail sentence)
And oh, it's the only only time
It's the only time when I can unwind

Hello world, good morning sunshine
Great to see you again
Homie, I'm doin' fine
Chasin' day dreams, you know still pursuing mine
Sleep is so foreign, tv is so boring
New york is New York
Travie is still aight
The freaks come out at night like a vampire
Nocturnal lurking
The daylight creeps up

And it looks like daylight's gonna get me up again
(damn right and I'm lovin' every minute)
Most people like getting up when I'm just getting in
(i'll be back in three days like Paris's jail sentence)
Daylight's gonna get me up again
(damn right and I'm lovin' every minute)
Most people like getting up when I'm just getting in
