Gabrielle Aplin – More Than Friends lyrics

You've been awake for hours
I've been awake for days
My eyes still feel like I'm asleep
Stuck inside an empty dream
Question if this is even real
Cliche way for me to feel
Unfinished messages to send
Told you I never want it to end

I 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 jester and the 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 you laugh
'Cause I need to find out how it feels to be broken in two halves, oh.

And do you think I'd run out on you now?
Cause we're still young if we pretend.
Can we go back to when broken things only needed plasters to mend?

Let's stay awake for hours,
Just like we did back then.
When you'd draw pictures on my hands
In permanent marker pen.
We'd watch the sun go down,
But never fear the end.
'Cause I know even in darkness
We're more than friends.
