Lewis Capaldi - Before You Go Lyrics



I fell by the wayside like everyone else
I hate you, I hate you, I hate you but I was just kidding myself
Our every moment, I start to replace
'Cause now that they're gone all I hear were the words that I needed to say

When you hurt under the surface
Like troubled water running cold
Well, time can heal but this won't

So, before you go
Was there something I could've said to make your heart beat better?
If only I'd have known you had a storm to weather
So, before you go
Was there something I could've said to make it all stop hurting?
It kills me how your mind could make you feel so worthless
So, before you go

Was never the right time whenever you called
Went little by little by little until there was nothing at all
Our every moment, I start to replay
But all I can think about is seeing that look on your face

When you hurt under the surface
Like troubled water running cold
Well, time can heal but this won't

So, before you go
Was there something I could've said to make your heart beat better?
If only I'd have known you had a storm to weather
So, before you go
Was there something I could've said to make it all stop hurting?
It kills me how your mind could make you feel so worthless
So, before you go

Would we be better off by now
If I'd have let my walls come down
Maybe I guess we'll never know
You know, you know

Before you go
Was there something I could've said to make your heart beat better?
If only I'd have known you had a storm to weather
So, before you go
Was there something I could've said to make it all stop hurting?
It kills me how your mind could make you feel so worthless
So, before you go

    I might not have a family member who has killed themselves. but I do have my father who passed away on new years. before. we were all so happy with him around.now that he's gone everything went downhill. we don't have a lot of money and my sister is becoming nasty to people. I might have a new stepdad and stepsister. and it's all so hard on us.

    (paraphrased stVelasco)

    Hey, (poke, poke)
    I know you're busy with the whole pesky dying thing n all .. but I'm gonna need u to hang on just a min, bcuz IT KILLS ME
    (Addressing the dying person) to have to remember unpleasant inconsequential things.. yes kinda like what's killing you, but focus, were on me now. ... Hey.. hey... Sleepyhead?? Can u keep just one eye open at least. So yeah it'd really help if u could give some feedback was there anything I. COuld have done to soothe this whole dying thing for you? My hairstyle? Highlights? A trim?? Was the Prada toilet paper a bit much ? Maybe I should be it ûu7u77u7u6i look i

    Speaking to Apple Music's Beats 1, Lewis revealed, "It's about suicide...not necessarily the act of it, but, like, after it happens, the aftermath of it. And...people kind of blaming themselves or starting to think, you know, 'What could I have done to kinda help that person?' or whatever." When I was five or six...my aunt committed suicide and I just remember recently speaking to my mom about her feelings," he said. "About going through that sort of rigmarole in your head of like, you know, "What could I have done here? Could I have done anything?"

    "She said at first you're angry. You kinda get angry at them. And then you get angry at yourself...she said it was a very, very strange [emotional] arc."

  52. caroline

    i heard this song and tried to look it up on youtube and typed james arthur before you go, i was so sure it was james arthur’s voice

    Mizan Rashid

    Ha, they're both my favourite singers!

  53. Teaghan Jayne

    In current time we need more singers/songwriters like Lewis Capaldi because he relates to people on another level

  54. Linda McPherson

    Keep going with your music, it's a tough industry and it only takes one song to set the stage and I'm coming from a song writers view... Love your songs by the way

  55. Depressed_JoshDunsDrumstick X

    Every time I hear this I get an edit of all the good times my crush and I have had together and our friendship

  56. Aesthetic Outfits

    I don’t have a favorite song, but this is definitely one I mostly listen to, it makes me feel like I matter, it makes me feel like I am not worthless and I mean something! Like it’s gives me the chills! Lewis I feel is so underrated and he needs so much of the love he deserves! Literally best song ever...

  57. Roba ha

  61. Martina Demeter

    🥰🥰🥰

  62. Athena Harding

    I Love that all of Lewis Capaldi's songs have something that anyone can relate to.

    My grandma has Parkinson's disease and even though she is still here her mind is not and it is so hard to see her that way. She was once a strong independent woman and her own body has betrayed her. The worst thing is that she knows and feels what is happening to her.. but she cant stop it. This song says all the things that I wish I had the courage to say to her.

    princess potatoe

    Athena Harding what will happen will happen and please stay strong through it all

  63. Sad Unicorn

    You hav wonderful voice i love it <3

  64. Tanja Jeitler

  65. Clary Anne

    Im just sitting here listening to the song and imagining telling my-casually-suicidal-self all the words of this song before we go, and im just realizing now at this moment, writing this, how weird my mind and soul has developed

  66. CrazyComedyKid

    I felt the meaning in every word.

  67. Mckenzie Blankenship

    I dedicate this song to my friend Adam his girlfriend committed suicide last week because she had a miscarriage and were all going through a rough time he told me last night that he whisked that there was something that he could’ve done but he said that she is now in a better place and is not hurting no more in loving memory of Taylor Thompson Rest In Peace my friend .

    I lost my best friend to a girl and it just kinda hit me. I think we grew apart because he liked me but I didn’t have the same feelings even though we agreed to continue being friends now he’s gone for good and I’m just kinda stuck rn

  76. Paul Walker

    Makes me remember when I was in the same situation. Beautiful.

  77. UzumakiUchiha _7

    My dog just died tonight. And it’s so painful. I felt so numb, and shock that i just didn’t know what to feel anymore. This song, the sad thing about it is my dog can’t really express, say what hurts her, what’s killing her. They just wag their tails even if their falling apart and that part breaks my heart the most. I wish I could’ve loved my dog even more, so much more. If only they lived longer.

  78. Ashley Martin

    i am right there with you on this song

    He’s so powerful🥰❤️

  86. Just Mia

    my best friend attempted suicide last week. i listened to this song every night. every. damn. night. praying and praying that she would be safe, and hating myself because i never knew how hurt she was. to me, i think this song was what saved her. she survived. and i’ll never ever stop crying to this song because for some reason it got me through everything that week. all the fear and pain of what was happening to her, hoping that i would be able to tell her these exact words in this song. and i am.

  87. Echo

    Hope this comment gets buried, but it takes a weight off of my shoulders. Im committing suicide tomorrow. Planned everything alrdy too :( I want to stop myself but I just cant, my depression is dragging me down into an endless pit of pain. I just want the pain to stop. Its all I want. I share this here cus it feels good to share my story in the comment section of my fav song.

    Heres the story:
    I'm 14 now. I live in Brussels, Belgium. It all started 3 years ago. I moved cities after my parents died. I passed the corner where they got killed by a drunk fucking idiot driving at 10 pm. I couldnt handle it. Im an orphan. Got no other family, no sisters, when my parents died I got stuck in a depression. Didnt talk to my friends anymore. Isolated myself from the outside world. When i moved schools I started getting bullied cus I had no friends. I cant share my story cus there is no one i can talk to. I just dont see the point anymore. No one cares about me, i have no one to care for. I basically dont exist. Who would miss me. And yet i'm still here, wallowing in self-pity, wanting to share my story even though no one cares. I'm jumping out of my window tomorrow. After stealing a piece of chocolate from the kitchen, to make me feel better. Im honestly looking forward to it. Anyways, thanks for reading my story, have a good one.

  88. Bekko Linchen

    The ones who disliked this cried so hard that because of the tears in their eyes they couldnt see ckear and accidently disliked instead of liking the video.

  89. Bosnix Bro

    I came here because of Roomie Official. He made a little cover of this song on his channel.

  90. Diana Dinu

    I love this Song🥺❤️❤️❤️❤️

  91. accebeR

    One day after the release a girl who sat next to me in class committed suicide. We weren’t that close, but it was always nice to talk to her. She did not have many friends, but had a dream to become an actress. I often said that I hope someday her dream will come true. If I only knew how she really felt, I would have done everything to make her feel better.

  92. Euwan Matt

    He sounds like having a cold everytime he sings

  93. Ala Archear

    Lewis Capaldi and Ed Sheeran both have such powerful music, it sends shivers down my spine
