Hurts – Wait Up lyrics
[Verse 1]
It's four in the mornin'
We pass by your apartment
And there's a candle in the window
It's happened again
And I don't know where it ends, but
It always leaves me hollow

[Pre-Chorus 1]
The driver asks me which way to go
And I'm starin' at my phone
In this taxi cab

[Chorus]
So if you're worried
Then I'm sorry
I'm coming home, so wait up for me
'Cause I feel shameful
Oh, so unholy
Unlock the door and wait up for me
Wait up for me

[Verse 2]
I pull up on your street
Stinking of whiskey
Wipe the lipstick from my collar
The more I cheat, the more I love
The more it eats me all up inside
And I wonder why I bother

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Still got your perfume on my coat
And I'm starin' at my phone
In this taxi cab

[Chorus]
If you're worried
Then I'm sorry
I'm coming home, so wait up for me
And I feel shameful
Oh, so unholy
Unlock the door and wait up for me
Wait up for me

[Bridge]
Wait up for me, baby
Wait up for me, darling
'Cause I'm coming home
I'm coming home

[Chorus]
If you're worried
Then I'm sorry
I'm coming home, so wait up for me
(open up your heart and wait)
I feel shameful (shameful)
So unholy, yeah
Unlock the door and wait up for me
(wait up, wait up, wait up, wait up)
Wait up for me

[Outro]
(Wait, wait, wait...)
