"Exist for Love" is the sixteenth single released by AURORA and the first single from her Fourth Studio Album. On May 14, 2020 the song was officially released worldwide.

Background Edit

The announcement of new music was first brought up in an interview with HTS. Then, on May 11th, AURORA posted a photo of a hand-written note on Twitter, saying she had never written a love song but felt that was what the world needed right now. The note closed out by saying "I'm ready to share the next era with you." AURORA blacked out her Instagram and archived all of her posts. She then put up 9 posts that made up the cover art for the song. Each post was accompanied by lyrics to the song.

About the song Edit

"I feel like the world is going through change, and yet again we are reminded of the importance of love. And how much love we are capable of giving back to the world. I think when we get to experience love, in any shape or color we understand why we exist, we exist for love". -AURORA

It was written and recorded in 2017. The vocals in the official version are the same ones in the very first recording of the song.

According to AURORA, the song had to be released a few years after it was written because she didn't feel it was time to release it yet.[1]

Lyrics Edit

They say there is a war
Between the man and the woman (Ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah)
I've never felt like this before
My heart knew that I couldn't (Ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah)
And then you take me in
And everything in me begins to feel like I belong
Like everybody needs a home
And when I take your hand
Like the world has never held a man
I know I cannot heal the hurt
But I will hold you here forever
If I can, if I can

And then I learned the truth
How everything good in life seems to lead back to you
And every single time I run into your arms
I feel like I exist for love
Like I exist for love
Only for love

I can't imagine how it is to be forbidden from loving (Ah-ah-ah, ah-ah-ah)
'Cause when you walked into my life
I could feel my life begin
Like I was torn apart the minute I was only born
And you're the other half
The only thing that makes me whole
I know it sounds like a lot
But you really need to know
We are leaning out for love
And we will lean for love forever, I know
I love you so

And then I learned the truth
How everything good in life seems to lead back to you
And every single time I run into your arms
I feel like I exist for love
Like I exist for love
Only for love

And when you say my name
Like white horses on the waves
I think it feels the same
As an ocean in my veins
And you'll be diving in
Like nothing is out of place
And we exist for love
Only for love

And I love you, I love you, I love you
And I love you, I love you, I love you
