James Arthur – Can I Be Him? lyrics
You walked into the room
And now my heart's been stolen
You took me back in time
To when I was unbroken

Now you're all I want
And I knew it from the very first moment
'Cause a light came on when I heard that song
And I want you to sing it again

I swear that every word you sing,
You wrote them for me
Like it was a private show
But I know you never saw me
When the lights come on and I'm on my own
Will you be there to sing it again?
Could I be the one you talk about in all your stories?
Can I be him?

I heard there was someone
But I know he don't deserve you
If you were mine,
I'd never let anyone hurt you, no no

I wanna dry those tears, kiss those lips
It's all I've been thinking about
'Cause a light came on when I heard that song
And I want you to sing it again

I swear that every word you sing,
You wrote them for me
Like it was a private show
But I know you never saw me
When the lights come on and I'm on my own
Will you be there to sing it again?
Could I be the one you talk about in all your stories?

Can I be the one?
Can I be the one?
Can I be the one?
Oh, can I, can I be him?
Won't you sing it again?
Oh, when you sing it again
Can I be him?
Oh, sing it again
Oh, when you sing it again
Can I be him?

I swear that every word you sang,
You wrote them for me
Like it was a private show
But I know you never saw me
When the lights come on and I'm on my own
Will you be there, will you be there?
Can I be the one you talk about in all your stories?
Can I be him?
Can I be him?
Can I be him?
Can I be him?
