Hurts – Only You lyrics

When the night is young but it makes you feel much older
And you come towards each waking hour of life
When the days go by but the darkness lingers longer
And before you know it life is one long night

But when I close my eyes I see you standing before me
And if you take my hand I’ll leave it all behind
Because only you can set me free
So hold me close just like the first time

Flashing lights illuminate your halo
And my pounding heart beats thunder like a drum
When we used to dance we never cast a shadow
Because there was only you and me when we were young

And in this sea of scars the first cut is the deepest
No matter where you are I’ll always think of you
Because only you can set me free
So hold me close just like the first time

Show me how it used to be
Because only you can set me free
