  • You can't find the phone, so you can call it off
    But it might be for the best
    You can't walk away, anyway
    'Cause you've nowhere else to go

    Is he worth all this, is it a simple yes
    'Cause if you have to think, it's fucked
    Feels like you've loved him more than he loved you
    And you wish you'd never met

    Don't keel over now
    Don't keel over
    Don't keel over now
    Don't keel over

    You've been up all night and the night before
    And you've lost count of drinks and time
    And your friends keep calling, worried sick
    And there's strangers everywhere

    Don't keel over now
    Don't keel over
    Don't keel over now
    Don't keel over

    And in one little moment, it all implodes
    This isn't everything you are
    Breathe deeply in the silence, no sudden moves
    This isn't everything you are

    Just take the hand that's offered, and hold on tight
    This isn't everything you are
    There's joy not far from here, I, I know there is
    This isn't everything you are

    When you took the call, how could you know
    That he'd slipped away last night
    When you wish you'd went home days ago
    To say goodbye, or just hello

    Don't keel over now
    Don't keel over
    Don't keel over now
    Don't keel over

    And in one little moment, it all implodes
    This isn't everything you are
    Breathe deeply in the silence, no sudden moves
    This isn't everything you are

    Just take the hand that's offered, and hold on tight
    This isn't everything you are
    There's joy not far from here, I, I know there is
    This isn't everything you are

    This isn't everything you are
    This isn't everything you are Writer/s: GARRET JACKNIFE LEE, GARY LIGHTBODY, JONATHAN GRAHAM QUINN, NATHAN CONNOLLY, PAUL WILSON, TOM SIMPSON
