  • I don't have much to give, but I don't care for gold
    What use is money, when you need someone to hold?
    Don't have direction, I'm just rolling down this road
    Waiting for you to bring me in from out the cold

    You'll never know the endless nights, the rhyming of the rain
    Or how it feels to fall behind and watch you call his name

    Pack up and leave everything
    Don't you see what I can bring?
    Can't keep this beating heart at bay
    Set my midnight sorrow free
    I will give you all of me
    Just leave your lover, leave him for me
    Leave your lover, leave him for me

    We sit in bars and raise our drinks to growing old
    Oh, I'm in love with you and you will never know
    But if I can't have you, I'll walk this life alone
    Spare you the rising storms and let the rivers flow

    You'll never know the endless nights, the rhyming of the rain
    Or how it feels to fall behind and watch you call his name

    Pack up and leave everything
    Don't you see what I can bring?
    Can't keep this beating heart at bay
    Set my midnight sorrow free
    I will give you all of me
    Just leave your lover, leave him for me
    Leave your lover, leave him for me
    Leave your lover, leave him for me Writer/s: Sam Smith, Simon Aldred
