I Know You Care

  • Clinging to me
    Like a last breath you would breathe
    You were like home to me
    I don't recognize the street

    Please don't close your eyes
    Don't know where to look without them
    Outside the cars speed by
    I never heard them until now

    I know you care, I know it is always been there
    But there is trouble ahead I can feel it
    You are just saving yourself when you hide it
    Yeah, I know you care
    I see it in the way that you stare
    As if there was trouble ahead, and you knew it
    I'll be saving myself from the ruin
    And I know you care

    I use to run down the stairs, to the door
    And I thought you were there
    To shape to the comfort of us
    Two lovers loved out of love

    Oh, but I know you care
    I know it is always been there
    But there is trouble ahead I can feel it
    You are just saving yourself when you hide it
    Yeah, I know you care
    I see it in the way that you stare
    As if there was trouble ahead, and you knew it
    I'll be saving myself from the ruin

    I know it wasn't always wrong
    But I've never known a winter so cold
    Now I don't want my hands in a coat
    But I still hope
    'Cause this is how things ought to have been
    And I know the worst of it wasn't all that it seemed
    Why can't I dream?
    Do I care to dream?

    'Cause I know you care
    And I know you care
    I know you care
    I know you care
    I know it's always been there Writer/s: Ellie Goulding, Justin Parker
