Olly Murs – Dear Darlin lyrics
Verse 1
Dear Darlin’, please excuse my writing.
I can’t stop my hands from shaking cos I’m cold and alone tonight.
I miss you and nothing hurts like no you.
And no one understands what we went through.
It was short. It was sweet. We tried.

Pre Chorus 1
And if my words break through the wall and meet you at your door, all I
Could say is:
“Girl, I mean them all.”

Chorus 1
Dear Darlin’, please excuse my writing.
I can’t stop my hands from
shaking cos I’m cold and alone tonight.
I miss you and nothing hurts like no you.
And no one understands what we went through.
It was short. It was sweet.
We tried.

We tried.

Woman: I understand why we split before a month.

Verse 2
Been thinking about the ball we dreamt.
Feeling like the sofa was sinking.
I was warm in the hope of your eyes.

Pre Chorus 2
So if my words break through the wall to meet you at your door, all I could
Say is:
“Girl, I mean them all.”

Chorus 2
Dear Darlin’, please excuse my writing.
I can’t stop my hands from shaking cos I’m cold and alone tonight.
I miss you and nothing hurts like no you.
And no one understands what we went through.
It was short. It was sweet. We tried.

Middle 8
Oh I concur. These arms are yours to hold.

Orchestral Instrumental (16 seconds)

Chorus 3
And I miss you and nothing hurts like no you.
And no one understands what we went through.
It was short. It was sweet. We tried. We tried

    This song is about how someone who you love very much and is very important to you leaves your life, for example you've broken up, they passed away, or they moved to a different country. It's about who them leaving you has created a kind-off hole in your life that you can't close. It's a very emotionally powerful song. If you specifically listen yo the lyrics you will realise that there is a lot of meaning underneath the surface. I have to admit this song is my favourite of Olly Murs as I can easily connect with it. Dear Darlin is beautiful, it's a beautiful Song.
