"Use Your Love" is a cover of the song "Your Love," originally performed by The Outfield. The song is a track on Perry's debut EP Ur So Gay. The song is written by John Federick Spinks and produced by Junior Sanchez. Perry's version of the song contains altered lyrics from a female perspective.

Background

For the single release of "Ur So Gay", Katy Perry's label asked her to include a cover song. She stated in an interview with Prefix magazine:

There were a couple of choices in the pile for covers. I actually wanted to do a Queen cover, but there wasn’t anything they would play in the club. So I’m back to square one, and I go out dancing with my girls. “Use Your Love,” the original version by the Outfield, comes on, and immediately every girl hits the dance floor. Everybody’s out there dancing and trying to hit these notes. It was the best time, and I wanted to capture that on the Ur So Gay [EP].

—Katy Perry

Lyrics

I know you know my boyfriend is out of town
so have a drink, let's talk it over
So many things I shouldn't be saying now
You know I like my boys a little bit older
I just wanna use your love
tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight
I don't wanna lose your love tonight

All my girls are no where to be found
they all split when I'm in trouble
but I'll tell you all my secrets if you stick around
be undercover, love is under the covers
I just wanna use your love
tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight
I don't wanna lose your love tonight

I just wanna use your l-o-v-e, l-o-v-e
I just wanna use your l-o-v-e, l-o-v-e
I just wanna use your l-o-v-e, l-o-v-e, l-o-v-e

Try to stop my head from spinning
too much to drink - not making sense
It's Been a while since I've been with someone new
But I can't stop the way I'm feeling

As you leave please would you just close the door
now that our love affair is over
you're exactly what I was looking for
We'll find a shoulder to cry upon

I just wanna use your love
tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight
I don't wanna lose your love tonight
I just wanna use your love
tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight (Oh, I just wanna use your love baby)
I don't wanna lose your love tonight
I just wanna use your love
tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight, tonight (hey,hey)
I don't wanna lose your love tonight

You don't mean nothing at all to me
You don't mean nothing at all to me
You don't mean nothing at all to me
You don't mean nothing at all to me
You don't mean nothing at all

I think I'm done f**kin' singing this song
I think I'm done f**kin' singing this song
I think I'm done f**kin' singing this song
I think I'm done f**kin' singing this song
Singing this song, song, song song
