Gabrielle Aplin

You've been awake for hours
I've been awake for days
My eyes to feel like I'm asleep
stuck inside an empty dream
Question if this is even real
a clich' way for me to feel
Unfinished messages to send
I told you I never want to end

I've watched you break yourself in two
and try to give me half
And I seem to wonder what it takes to work
to make this last

Only two more days
to kill the mess we've made
And give the lions something to hunt for
Cause now the ace is played
the desks are under queen of spades
There's nothing left for us to hope for

And I'd run to the furthest place I need to
just to hear love
Cause I need to find out
how it feels to be broken in two hearts

And do you think that I've run out on you now
Cause I still yearn, if we pretend
Can we go back to where broken things only needed plasters to mend

Let's stay awake for hours
just like we did back then
When you draw pictures on my hand
in permanent marker pen
We watch the sun go down
but never feel the end
Cause I know the sun and darkness are
more than friends
