  • Over, over and over 'til you go and lock your heart
    Open, totally broken when you've tumbled through the dark
    Hold me, hold me closer 'til you're breaking up, don't leave
    Fold it, fold it over, eight times then start again

    I was your world, I was okay
    And I was the light that shined on every day
    I was your world, I was okay
    And I was the light that followed you always

    But if we've only got one parachute
    If we've only got one parachute
    You know I'd give it to you, you
    I'd give it to you

    Nowhere, nowhere is home unless we're both in the same place
    Older, shoulder to shoulder 'cause we don't have separate ways
    Hold me, hold me closer 'til we're breaking up, don't leave
    Folded, I've folded it over, eight times then start again

    I was your world, I was okay
    And I was the light that shined on every day
    I was your world, I was okay
    And I was the light that followed you always

    But if we've only got one parachute
    If we've only got one parachute
    You know I'd give it to you, you
    I'd give it to you
    If we've only got one parachute
    If we've only got one parachute
    You know I'd give it to you, you
    I'd give it to you

    Out of mind, it's not important anymore
    I realize
    That you're at the core of what I need

    And if we've only got one parachute
    And if we've only got one parachute
    You know I'd give it to you, you
    I'd give it to you
    If we've only got one parachute
    If we've only got one parachute
    You know I'd give it to you, you
    I'd give it to you Writer/s: Brian Higgins, Charles Wilson, Danny Shah, James Rix, Matthew Gray, Owen Parker, Tobey Le Scott, Vijay Msitry
