  • I look up from the ground
    To see your sad and teary eyes
    You look away from me
    And I see there's something you're tryna hide
    And I reach for your hand but it's cold
    You pull away again
    And I wonder what's on your mind
    And then you say to me you made a dumb mistake
    You start to tremble and your voice begins to break
    You say the cigarettes on the counter weren't your friend's
    They were my mate's
    And I feel the color draining from my face

    And my friend said
    "I know you love her, but it's over, mate
    It doesn't matter, put the phone away
    It's never easy to walk away, let her go
    It'll be alright"

    So I still look back at all the messages you'd sent
    And I know it wasn't right, but it was fucking with my head
    And everything deleted like the past, yeah, it was gone
    And when I touched your face, I could tell you're moving on
    But it's not the fact that you kissed him yesterday
    It's the feeling of betrayal, that I just can't seem to shake
    And everything I know tells me that I should walk away
    But I just wanna stay

    And my friend said
    "I know you love her, but it's over, mate
    It doesn't matter, put the phone away
    It's never easy to walk away, let her go
    It'll be okay
    It's gonna hurt for a bit of time
    So bottoms up, let's forget tonight
    You'll find another and you'll be just fine
    Let her go"

    But nothing heals the past like time
    And they can't steal
    The love you're born to find
    But nothing heals the past like time
    And they can't steal
    The love you're born to find

    "I know you love her, but it's over, mate
    It doesn't matter, put the phone away
    It's never easy to walk away, let her go
    It'll be okay
    It's gonna hurt for a bit of time
    So bottoms up, let's forget tonight
    You'll find another and you'll be just fine
    Let her go"

    It'll be alright
    It'll be alright
    It'll be alright
    It'll be alright
    It'll be alright Writer/s: Dean Lewis Grant Loaney, Jon Cobbe Hume
