Formal structure of  "It's Only Love":
Intro (bridge) 0:00-0:10*
Verse 1 0:10-0:27
Verse 2 0:52-1:09
Coda (bridge) 1:39-157*
Comments: Last chorus extended to propel the song to its conclusion. Similar extensions served similar purposes in  Thank You Girl,  She Loves You,  All I've Got To Do,  I Want to Hold Your Hand,  "What You're Doing",  "I Feel Fine", and  "Tell Me What You See".
The only other Beatles recording to date to use an introduction based on the bridge is [13f] "Please Mister Postman". No other Beatles recording to date uses a coda based on the bridge.
