  • I'm waitin' up, savin' all my precious time
    Losin' light, I'm missin' my same old us
    Before we learned our truth too late
    Resigned to fate, fadin' away
    So tell me, can you turn around?
    I need someone to tear me down
    Oh, tell me, can you turn around?
    But either way

    Hold me while you wait
    I wish that I was good enough (hold me while you wait)
    If only I could wake you up (hold me while you wait)
    My love, my love, my love, my love
    Won't you stay a while? (Hold me while you wait)

    Tell me more, tell me something I don't know
    Could we come close to havin' it all?
    If you're gonna waste my time
    Let's waste it right

    And hold me while you wait
    I wish that I was good enough (hold me while you wait)
    If only I could wake you up (hold me while you wait)
    My love, my love, my love, my love
    Won't you stay a while? (Hold me while you wait)
    I wish you'd cared a little more (hold me while you wait)
    I wish you'd told me this before (hold me while you wait)
    My love, my love, my love, my love
    Won't you stay a while? (Hold me while you wait)

    This is you, this is me, this is all we need
    Is it true? My faith is shaken, but I still believe
    This is you, this is me, this is all we need
    So won't you stay a while?

    And hold me while you wait
    I wish that I was good enough (hold me while you wait)
    If only I could wake you up (hold me while you wait)
    My love, my love, my love, my love
    Won't you stay a while? (Hold me while you wait)
    I wish you'd cared a little more (hold me while you wait)
    I wish you'd told me this before (hold me while you wait)
    My love, my love, my love, my love
    Won't you stay a while? (Hold me while you wait)

    Stay a while (hold me while you wait)
    (My faith is shaken, but I still believe) stay a while
    (Hold me while you wait)
    My love, my love, my love (hold me while you wait)
    Won't you stay a while? Writer/s: Jamie Alexander Hartman, Jamie N. Commons, Lewis Capaldi
