Charted: 50
  • I find shelter in this way
    Under cover, hide away
    Can you hear when I say
    I have never felt this way

    Maybe I had said something that was wrong
    Can I make it better with the lights turned on
    Maybe I had said something that was wrong
    Can I make it better with the lights turned on

    Could I be, was I there
    It felt so crystal in the air
    I still want to drown whenever you leave
    Please teach me gently how to breathe

    And I'll cross oceans like never before
    So you can feel the way I feel it too

    And I'll send images back at you
    So you can see the way I feel it too

    Maybe I had said something that was wrong
    Can I make it better with the lights turned on
    Maybe I had said something that was wrong
    Can I make it better with the lights turned on

    Maybe I had said something that was wrong
    Can I make it better with the lights turned on
    Maybe I had said something that was wrong
    Can I make it better with the lights turned on

    Maybe I had said something that was wrong
    Can I make it better with the lights turned on Writer/s: ROMY ANNA MADLEY CROFT, OLIVER DAVID SIM, JAMES THOMAS SMITH, BARIA QURESHI
