  • I've said a thousand things before
    I've fallen in and out of love
    I couldn't walk but tried to run
    At night the weight of expectation seems to keep me up

    A thousand times I said too much
    Always second guess before I jump
    I gave my all but not enough
    And with the weight of expectation, I'll be sleeping rough

    How come I'm the only one who ever seems to get in my way?
    Lately, I've been fucking up a good thing any chance I can get
    Somebody to lean on, somebody to hold
    It's just another to lead out before I let go
    And I ain't tryna be lonely, solely
    But everything I touch turns to stone
    Maybe I'm better off on my own

    A thousand times I've heard the same
    I've heard some other voices in my head
    Let me assure you that my mind's in check
    I just can't put my faith in something we might live to regret

    How come I'm the only one who ever seems to get in my way?
    Lately, I've been fucking up a good thing any chance I can get
    Somebody to lean on, somebody to hold
    It's just another to lead out before I let go
    And I ain't tryna be lonely, solely
    But everything I touch turns to stone
    Maybe I'm better off on my own

    Everything that I touch turns to stone
    Maybe I'm better off on my own
    Everything that I touch turns to stone
    Maybe I'm better off on my own

    How come I'm the only one who ever seems to get in my way?
    Lately, I've been fucking up a good thing any chance I can get
    Somebody to lean on, somebody to hold
    It's just another to lead out before I let go
    And I ain't tryna be lonely, solely
    But everything I touch turns to stone
    Maybe I'm better off on my own Writer/s: Edward Holloway, Lewis Capaldi, Nicholas Atkinson
