Lewis Capaldi - Hold Me While You Wait Lyrics

I'm waiting up, saving all my precious time
Losing light, I'm missing my same old us
Before we learned our truth too late
Resigned to fate, fading away

So tell me, can you turn around?
I need someone to tear me down
Oh tell me, can you turn around?
But either way

Hold me while you wait
I wish that I was good enough
(Hold me while you wait)
If only I could wake you up
(Hold me while you wait)
My love, my love, my love, my love
Won't you stay a while?
(Hold me while you wait)

Tell me more, tell me something I don't know
Could we come close to having it all?
If you're gonna waste my time
Let's waste it right

And hold me while you wait
I wish that I was good enough
(Hold me while you wait)
If only I could wake you up
(Hold me while you wait)
My love, my love, my love, my love
Won't you stay a while?
(Hold me while you wait)

I wish you cared a little more
(Hold me while you wait)
I wish you'd told me this before
(Hold me while you wait)
My love, my love, my love, my love
Won't you stay a while?
(Hold me while you wait)

This is you, this is me, this is all we need
Is it true? My faith is shaken, but I still believe
This is you, this is me, this is all we need
So won't you stay a while?

And hold me while you wait
I wish that I was good enough
(Hold me while you wait)
If only I could wake you up
(Hold me while you wait)
My love, my love, my love, my love
Won't you stay a while?
(Hold me while you wait)

I wish you cared a little more
(Hold me while you wait)
I wish you'd told me this before
(Hold me while you wait)
My love, my love, my love, my love
Won't you stay a while?
(Hold me while you wait)

(This is you, this is me, this is all we need)
Stay a while
(Hold me while you wait)
(Is it true? My faith is shaken, but I still believe)
Stay a while
(Hold me while you wait)
(This is you, this is me, this is all we need)
My love, my love, my love
Won't you stay a while?

Lewis Capaldi Hold Me While You Wait Comments
  1. Mila Ignatich

    I hope the one person I've been thinking about has had at least thought about the fact he tore me apart and watched it happen just like nothing happened. We weren't even together but we were so close, until I told him my feelings and he still wasn't over his ex. One of the worst parts is that he said I was cute, fun, and fun to be around but wouldn't date me, and I feel so bad for being so selfish about him. I just wish I didn't fuck the only chances I've had up so badly.

  2. Ern Huse

    I loved you, unconditionally. You shattered any thought or feeling in regards to that. You erased what could have been. You destroyed the notion of love, and true love, alike. You are the nemesis of love. You are cold. No love could warm that up if it was a 40,000 watt microwave. Sad, and miserable. Enjoy the fake sympathy and trash. You'll get out what you put in. Oddly enough, working isn't one of them.

  3. Danni Wolverton

    don’t mind me, this is just a random letter they will never read:

    hi. i know that you’re not thinking about me. you’re thinking about her. i told u it doesn’t break my heart. but that was a lie. i want you. i do. but you can’t always get what you want, right.

  25. xX SunnyGames Xx

    Feel free to right what you feel right now this is a safe place 🥺: I love him and he doesn’t love me...he promised he loves me when he doesn’t I know this for a fact. My Ex alek dumped me for a very close friend of mine named Hannah... me and Hannah were very close and then I found out he was talking to her behind my back about dating...now of course we’re not dating because he dumped me and now him and Hannah are dating...I act like I don’t care when I do...I’m hurt I’m really broken inside...but that’s just life... I’m currently dating somebody else at the moment and I really love him he makes me feel better, he’s only dating me because of this whole “bro” code thing. Bro code for this “thing”: whenever a guy and a girl break up in the bro squad, all the boys will try to date that girl eventually until all the boys dated her to where they have a reason to call her a whore... and that’s basically the Bro code, I know that’s what the guy I love is doing but I don’t care because I love him...and I just want it to all work out. I’ve lost 17 pounds from not eating...I’m not proud of my scars on my wrists,stomach,legs, and thighs...but there’s nothing I can do about it but try to keep my head up and keep everybody else happy. I know that sounds like I’m being dramatic and seeking for attention but I’m not...I do this for awareness on others. Stop cutting it doesn’t help...I know it’s what you do to cope but it is just hurting you... and that’s my story...

  26. Acorn Click

    I wish I was good enough but if I was, you'd still be here. But because of me your fine, and I'll never get you back... wherever you are, just know I'm sorry, I'm sorry for everything.I'm sorry I ever came into your life

  27. just kim

    Is it me, or I feel like this song is for someone special (a friend, a family member) who's attempting/has already attempted suicide?
    It hits me that way. I dunno, I feel like his words are far more than just romantic -- they're pleading for someone to stay in this world despite it being trashy.

    Am I hyper-analyzing the song? I need help. *sigh

    Just Another Person

    Thats actually a really good interpretation of it but it was written about paige turley who's on love island right now

    just kim

    @Just Another Person Oh gosh, thank you for the clarification! I hope I didn't look stupid not knowing. I can't even be bothered to do my research. I guess that's the power of music, yea? It hits us in different ways.

  28. ONEandONLY QueenBea

    I like someone you loved better kinda!!

  29. NlHILIST

    Today Lewis announced that this song was inspired by his broken relationship with Paige T. A couple of days ago he said that it was his grandmother's death that inspired Someone You Loved which was then given a dual interpretation.


    NlHILIST thanks for the update bbc news


    DIZZY .. whatever floats yer boat

  34. The Hitman

    Reminds me of a time when I thought we were forever. As we faded away I died a little each day, until we parted ways. Now life has become confusing and scary. Losing your best friend, your lover, is the hardest thing to do. Goodbye my never love. Forever you touched my heart 😭

  35. Lukas. A

    If only I could wake you up...

  36. Catherine Silva

  50. Isaiah Pedraza

    “Won’t you stay WHAAAAAAA!”

  51. Camille Santos

    When your crush liked you back, but you were too scared to risk everything because you got ghosted by an almost lover before him. Now, slowly loosing the walls you've built, doing so for him only to find out that he was just waiting for somebody.

    I am not a bench for you to stay at when you have nothing to do and leave when you have found somewhere to be. However, I know how this would end but I'll take the moment anyways. Will you hold me while you wait? I wish I can wake you up.

  52. Tyler Purvis

  56. toasted fork

    I just lost the love of my life. We've been together for 9 months. He already "lost basically all feelings" for me. He doesn't know how much I need him. I called him on Saturday, begging for him back. He said were better off as friends. It shattered me how much he was saying he didn't want me anymore. It's only been 2 weeks since the break up and he already is moving on while all I can think of is him holding me. I can't sleep without picturing him holding me. I miss him so much and I walked into class today and it smelled like him. I started tearing up. I have to see him Friday (Valentine's day) to give him his clothes back and get my stuff back. It's gonna hurt so much seeing him knowing I can't kiss him. That I can't love him anymore. That I can't call him mine. I love you forever L.L.😭😭-Z.P.

    Hello random person scrolling through the comments.
    If you need motivation, carry on reading:


    They might not stick around forever. So do your best to prevent them from disappearing. Never push someone away, even if its just a joke. No one is in your head. People judge by the actions you take. Be careful about what you do, be ready to make sacrifices. The responsibility is all yours.

    *Do not be like me*
    *Be better than me*
