  • Time
    It never was enough, no time
    I always tried to fit around your life
    With no consideration over mine, mine
    No wrong
    Everything was right and now it's gone
    Like a tree, it cut me down and let me go
    Like I was always banned from sayin' no
    No, no, no, no

    Drownin' in the darkest grey
    With no answers to rescue me
    I'm holdin' it down
    I'm holdin' it down
    Foolin' with no one to blame
    You left me here without a trace
    When I held you down
    I held you down

    So tell me why me?
    I didn't even know
    Why me?
    You left me all alone
    So cold
    So cold

    You stole
    My happiness from underneath my nose
    My insecurities left on the floor
    And didn't think for a second, oh no, no-no

    Oh oh drownin' in the darkest grey
    With no answers to rescue me
    I'm holdin' it down
    I'm holdin' it down
    Foolin' with no one to blame
    You left me here without a trace
    When I held you down
    I held you down

    So tell me why me?
    I didn't even know
    (And you still won't love me)
    Why me?
    You left me all alone
    (So why'd you leave me?)
    So cold
    So cold

    Why me?
    I didn't even know
    Why me?
    You left me all alone
    And now
    Why me?
    I didn't even know, why me
    Why me?
    You left me all alone

    So tell me why me?
    I didn't even know
    (And you still won't love me)
    Why me?
    You left me all alone
    (So why'd you leave me?)
    Why me?
    I didn't even know
    Why me?
    You left me all alone Writer/s: JESSICA HANNAH GLYNNE, KNOX BROWN
