  • So cold, alone
    Could you be my blanket?
    (Surround my bones)
    When my heart feels naked
    No strength, too weak
    I could use some saving
    And you're love's so strong

    Like a pill I take it, I take it, I take it
    Like a pill, your love, I take it
    I take it, I take it
    Like a pill, your love, I take it!

    When my world gets loud, could you make it quiet down?
    When my head, it pounds, could you turn down all the sound?
    If I lay in pain, by my side would you stay?
    If I need you now, would you kindly calm me down?
    Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, would you kindly calm me down?
    Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, would you kindly calm me down?

    When my heart's not pure
    Would you kill my disease?
    And when there's no cure
    You are just what I need
    When I lose my mind
    Would you still remind me?
    When I'm feeling lost
    Would you come and find me?

    I'd take it, I would take it
    Like a pill, your love I take it
    I take it, I take it
    Like a pill, your love, I take it

    When my world gets loud, could you make it quiet down?
    When my head, it pounds, could you turn down all the sound?
    If I lay in pain, by my side would you stay?
    If I need you now, would you kindly calm me down?
    Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, would you kindly calm me down?
    Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, would you kindly calm me down?

    When my world gets loud, could you make it quiet down?
    When my head, it pounds, could you turn down all the sound?
    If I lay in pain, by my side would you stay?
    If I need you now, would you kindly calm me down?

    When my world gets loud, could you make it quiet down?
    When my head, it pounds, could you turn down all the sound?
    If I lay in pain, by my side would you stay?
    If I need you now, would you kindly calm me down?
    (Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh) would you kindly calm me down?

    (Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, would you kindly calm me down?) Writer/s: ERIC FREDERIC, JAMES MORALES, JULIO DAVID RODRIGUEZ, MATTHEW MORALES, MEGHAN TRAINOR
