Lewis Capaldi – Tough lyrics
[Verse 1]
Every little part of me is holding onto every little piece you
It's holding on to every drop of blood you drew
It's holding onto you
And every waking hour I spend
Holding on for reasons not to go to bed
I'm holding on for someone else to hold instead
If every hope of you is dead

[Pre-Chorus]
'Cause every night since you cut and run
I feel like the only one who's ever been the lonely one
Trying to mend a heart that keeps breaking
With every step that you're taking

[Chorus]
'Cause you've been running circles 'round
My mind, turning me inside out
And I fell for you but hit the ground
'Cause the only love I've known has let me
Down and I need lifting up
Now you ain't here I'm sleeping rough
And I pray but I can't pray enough
'Cause waking up without you, it's so tough

[Verse 2]
I'd finally like to find my feet
When I keep on stumbling over you and me
But I keep on trying 'cause I know I need
To outrun the memories

[Pre-Chorus]
And every day I'm reminded of the way I let it come undone
I feel like the lonely one, the only one with time worth wasting
Well, I still can't stop chasing

[Chorus]
'Cause you've been running circles 'round
My mind, turning me inside out
And I fell for you but hit the ground
'Cause the only love I've known has let me
Down and I need lifting up
Now you ain't here I'm sleeping rough
And I pray but I can't pray enough
'Cause waking up without you, it's so tough
Tough
Tough
'Cause waking up without you,

[Bridge]
Stay out
Thought I was talking to you
Stay out
I guess I'm talking to myself
Me and nobody else

[Chorus]
'Cause you've been running circles 'round
My mind, turning me inside out
And I fell for you but hit the ground
'Cause the only love I've known has let me
Down and I need lifting up
Now you ain't here I'm sleeping rough
And I pray but I can't pray enough
'Cause waking up without you, it's so tough
