Before You Go – Lewis Capaldi

I fell by the wayside like everyone else
I hate you,I hate you,I hate you but I was just kidding myself
Our every moment I start to replace‘
Cos now that they’re gone all I hear are the words that I needed to say

When you hurt under the surface
Like troubled water running cold
Well time can heal but this won’t

So,before you go,was there something I could have said to make your heart beat better
If only I’d have known you had a storm to weather
So,before you go,was there something I could have said to make it all stop hurting
It kills me how your mind can make you feel so worthless oh
Before you go

Was never the right time whenever you called
Went little by little by little until there was nothing at all
Our every moment I start to replay but all I can think about is seeing that look on your face

When you hurt under the surface
Like troubled water running cold
Well time can heal but this won’t

So,before you go,was there something I could have said to make your heart beat better
If only I’d have known you had a storm to weatherSo,before you go,was there something I could have said to make it all stop hurting
It kills me how your mind can make you feel so worthless oh
Before you go

Would we be better off by now
If I’d have let my walls come down
Maybe I guess we’ll never know
You know,you know

Before you go,was there something I could have said to make your heart beat better
If only I’dhave known you had a storm to weather
So,before you go,was there something I could have said to make it all stop hurting
It kills me how your mind can make you feel so worthless oh
Before you go
