Birdy – What You Want lyrics

What you want to say, wait 'til you get home
Sick of communicating over the telephone
Tell me how you feel, for I am lonely too
Need you to know I'm just as cold and numb as you

But I could fly away or I could be no one
And you could be the sunshine falling over the mountains
Or you could come and stay, you could come right home
I don't see why I have to live this life all alone

Oh, I know there is a way to make up for old mistakes
And I know what's happening is for a reason, I know

But I could fly away or I could be no one
Sunshine falling over the mountains
