Charted: 1 9
  • I fell by the wayside like everyone else
    I hate you, I hate you, I hate you, but I was just kidding myself
    Our every moment, I start to replace
    'Cause now that they're gone, all I hear are the words that I needed to say

    When you hurt under the surface
    Like troubled water running cold
    Well, time can heal, but this won't

    So, before you go
    Was there something I could've said to make your heart beat better?
    If only I'd have known you had a storm to weather
    So, before you go
    Was there something I could've said to make it all stop hurting?
    It kills me how your mind can make you feel so worthless
    So, before you go

    Was never the right time, whenever you called
    Went little by little by little until there was nothing at all
    Our every moment, I start to replay
    But all I can think about is seeing that look on your face

    When you hurt under the surface
    Like troubled water running cold
    Well, some can heal, but this won't

    So, before you go
    Was there something I could've said to make your heart beat better?
    If only I'd have known you had a storm to weather
    So, before you go
    Was there something I could've said to make it all stop hurting?
    It kills me how your mind can make you feel so worthless
    So, before you go

    Would we be better off by now
    If I'd have let my walls come down?
    Maybe, I guess we'll never know
    You know, you know

    Before you go
    Was there something I could've said to make your heart beat better?
    If only I'd have known you had a storm to weather
    So, before you go
    Was there something I could've said to make it all stop hurting?
    It kills me how your mind can make you feel so worthless
    So, before you go Writer/s: Benjamin Kohn, Lewis Capaldi, Peter Kelleher, Philip Plested, Tommy Barnes
