  • [Hook: Paloma Faith]
    You’re only a man
    It’s only right you let the tears fall
    Know you're strong but you can’t take it all
    You just lost one
    You’re just a man
    Don’t be scared to let the angels fly
    Just let go cause it's your time to cry
    You just lost one
    You just lost one

    [Verse 1: Tinie Tempah]
    Said that we would never break
    Said that we never falter
    I thought that we were doing great
    I thought we’d make it to the altar
    Love the critical acclaim
    I knew that it’d catapult ya
    Hands on the table where the pepper and the salt are
    Only thing missing, rocks bigger than Gibraltar
    Hey, said that if it didn’t kill me
    Then it would only make us stronger
    But in our final hour will we
    Be wishing we could stay for longer?
    Maybe it would make us somber
    Wanna live and die another day?
    You better change your name to Pascal Payet
    You’ll always be the one that got away
    And I’m over you and you over me
    And you overdue and I’m over seas
    Cause I called you names and you phoned police
    Said man are all the same like there’s loads of me
    We arguing along Dover street
    At least try and smile in these photos please
    And now you’re all alone, cup of Ovaltine
    Whilst I’m with the one who I’m supposed to be


    [Tinie Tempah]
    You know they say it's better to have loved and lost
    To have never loved at all
    I don't even wanna watch you cry anymore
    Just gonna let the tears fall

    [Verse 2: Tinie Tempah]
    Congratulations on the first
    I wonder how we would have turned out
    Some relationships fat people, some of them never ever work out
    I put the stars all around you
    I never let you take your purse out
    But when everybody turned up
    Only one of us was turned down
    And girl, where you going with that attitude?
    We both feel the same and it's natural
    I ain't leaving cause I hate you
    I’m leaving cause I have to
    A half empty glass, two capsules
    Guess I’ll never ever know the exact truth
    If you can hear me, this is at you
    I would have had her if she had you


    [Verse 3: Tinie Tempah]
    How am I supposed to be majestic?
    How am I supposed to be mature?
    When I’ve been tryna move towards you from the moment I could crawl?
    I’ll still catch you when you fall
    And I’ll still answer when you call
    Guess we didn’t understand the language
    Of the writings on the wall
    Missing posters up of my heart girl
    With my love as a reward
    Speeding switching Richard's gears
    Whilst I’m trying not to stall
    Things will never be the same
    My back’s against the wall
    Cause the loser points the blame but the winner takes it all, yeah
