lonely world lyrics – the vaccines

“lonely world”

i knew who you were, it was perfectly obvious
i was uncomfortable playing it cool
but i feel like i have always known you
i kept you close and i thought you would question it
young in the night, when we stare like the rest of them
god forbid
oh my god

i would hold you close
’cause it is a lonely world
but would you want me too
’cause it is a lonely world

well i put off ’cause i’m painfully diffident
i played it out in my head from afar
but they trust me too
you disappeared to my dissatisfaction
oh, what could have been with a little more time?
woe is me
oh my god

i would hold you close
’cause it is a lonely world
but would you want me too
’cause it is a lonely world

yeah i would hold you close
’cause it is a lonely world
if i was confident
’cause it is a lonely world

yeah i would hold you close
’cause it is a lonely world
but would you want me too
’cause it is a lonely world

yeah i would hold you close
’cause it is a lonely world
if i was confident
’cause it is a lonely world
