  • I'm down to my skin and bone
    And my mommy, she can't put down the phone
    And stop asking how I'm doing all alone, alone
    But the truth is the stars are falling, ma
    And the wolves are out calling, ma
    And my home has never felt this far

    But all this driving
    Is driving me crazy
    And all this moving
    Is proving to get the best of me
    And I've been trying to hide it
    But lately
    Every time I think I'm better
    Pickin' my head up, getting nowhere

    Take me back to the basics and the simple life
    Tell me all of the things that make you feel at ease
    Your touch, my comfort, and my lullaby
    Holdin' on tight and sleepin' at night
    Holdin' on tight and sleepin' at night

    Now I'm down to my skin and bones
    My baby listens to me on the phone
    But I can't help feeling like I'm all alone, all alone
    The truth is, the stars are falling, babe
    And I'd never ever thought that I would say
    I'm afraid of the life that I've made, I've made

    But all this driving
    Is driving me crazy
    And all this moving
    Is proving to get the best of me
    And I've been trying to hide it
    But lately
    Every time I think I'm better
    Pickin' my head up, getting nowhere

    Take me back to the basics and the simple life
    Tell me all of the things that make you feel at ease
    Your touch, my comfort, and my lullaby
    Holdin' on tight and sleepin' at night

    I've been lyin' to them all
    I don't need it anymore
    Don't you worry about me
    I'll be fine if I can breathe
    I've been hidin' for too long
    Taking shit for how I'm wrong
    How I'm wrong
    Always wrong

    Take me back to the basics and the simple life
    Tell me all of the things that make you feel at ease
    Your touch, my comfort, and my lullaby
    Holdin' on tight and sleepin' at night
    Holdin' on tight and sleepin' at night

    Holdin' on tight and sleepin' at night
    Holdin' on tight and sleepin' at night
    (Take me back to the basics and the simple life)
    Holdin' on tight and sleepin' at night
    (Tell me all of the things that make you feel at ease)
    Holdin' on tight and sleepin' at night
    (Your touch, my comfort, and my lullaby)
    Holdin' on tight and sleepin' at night Writer/s: CALEB NOTT, GEORGIA NOTT, TROYE SIVAN
