Another "what's this song?" question.

Another "what's this song?" question. Google-fu and music search engines failed me. Lyrics that I can remember of it are inside.

This is a song I heard at the gym, taught by an instructor that's quit, so I can't ask her what the heck it's called. It was for a cardio class, so it was some kind of pop tune.

Chorus lyrics go something like this:

"It was perfectly normal,
just one little problem,
the fact that it turns out
you don't really want it (? or me?)
My love is a fortress
My love is in bloom"
(two more lines I don't know what they were saying after that)

Right before the chorus, there's some lines about "does it have to be sooooo long, long, long, long..."

I believe that's "Fists Up" by The Blow.

(And it goes "My love is a fortress/My love is a louvre")

"Fists Up" by The Blow

Here's the chorus:

It was perfect you know
with just one little problem
the fact that it turns out
you don't really want it
my love is a fortress,
my love is a Louvre
but it cant ever thrive
if i'm forced to keep proving it.

My love is a Louvre! It's from the excellent album Paper Television, by the way.
