Love in The Dark

  • Take your eyes off of me so I can leave
    I'm far too ashamed to do it with you watching me
    This is never ending, we have been here before
    But I can't stay this time 'cause I don't love you anymore
    Please stay where you are
    Don't come any closer
    Don't try to change my mind
    I'm being cruel to be kind

    I can't love you in the dark
    It feels like we're oceans apart
    There is so much space between us
    Maybe we're already defeated
    Ah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah everything changed me

    You have given me something that I can't live without
    You mustn't underestimate that when you are in doubt
    But I don't want to carry on like everything is fine
    The longer we ignore it all the more that we will fight
    Please don't fall apart
    I can't face your breaking heart
    I'm trying to be brave
    Stop asking me to stay

    I can't love you in the dark
    It feels like we're oceans apart
    There is so much space between us
    Maybe we're already defeated
    Ah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah everything changed me

    We're not the only ones
    I don't regret a thing
    Every word I've said
    You know I'll always mean
    It is the world to me
    That you are in my life
    But I want to live
    And not just survive

    That's why I can't love you in the dark
    It feels like we're oceans apart
    There is so much space between us
    Maybe we're already defeated
    'Cause ah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah-yeah everything changed me
    And I-I-I-I-I don't think you can save me Writer/s: Adele Laurie Adkins, Samuel Ronald Dixon
