Lewis Capaldi - Leaving My Love Behind Lyrics

I don't know how we got to where we are
So far removed I don't know where to start
'Cause I've been away for
Far too long but I implore you please hold on
I beg you please hold on

Love don't come easy to us
And it's killing me to hang on and hope it's enough

So I was just wondering
Could you tell me is it all a waste of time?
Are you leaving my love behind?
Baby, say the word and let me know
You gotta give me something
I swear that I won't try to change your mind
If you're leaving my love behind
Baby, say the word and let me go

We used to wait up and talk for hours on end
And it's got me thinking that lately something's changed
'Cause I've been feeling you leaving
Cracks in conversations way too long
I'm barely holding on

Love don't come easy to us
And it's killing me to hang on and hope it's enough

So I was just wondering
Could you tell me is it all a waste of time?
Are you leaving my love behind?
Baby, say the word and let me know
You gotta give me something
I swear that I won't try to change your mind
If you're leaving my love behind
Baby, say the word and let me go

Just let me go
Let me go
Just let me go
Just let me go
Baby, say the word and let me go

'Cause I was just wondering
Could you tell me is it all a waste of time?
Are you leaving my love behind?
Baby, say the word and let me know
You gotta give me something
I swear that I won't try to change your mind
If you're leaving my love behind
Baby, say the word and let me go

Just let me go
Just let me go
Baby, say the word and let me go

  18. shian nicole

    Yo his feelings must be deep as fuck sometimes because his music hits your soul man

  19. Rayna

    I guess, you've just waited for me to let you go. Now I understand why you just left without any word. 💔 It breaks but I leave it like that. At least I learned what I need to learn. ( with this song, at least I am one step to moving forward and slowly not to look back, just accept what need to accept.) 👌🏻

  20. Maisie Twiggs

    I feel like Lewis Capaldi can read my mind -his songs are so relatable. First it was bruises then Someone you loved and now this. i feel so much more less alone when i listen. Thank you.

  21. Dec

    Ive just started seeing someone new, shes amazing in every way, beautiful and I almost feel shes too good for me that I surely cant be everything she wants, I just wanna dive right in but im reluctant to open up due to what my ex did to me, I fear that if I do open up then I may be back here listening to this song in a different way, but also fear that if I don't open up she may feel that I don't want it, advice guys what should I do?

  22. malia delk

    he is the love of my life. he never fails to make me happy

  23. Aysha KZM

    Moving on from someone you still care about can be very suffocating. But you need to let go in order to breath.

  24. Bonnie Page

    i never loved someone this much that ive never even met...

  25. Amelia S

    When ever I am going through something hard i just switch on my phone plug in my headphones and listen to Lewis Capaldi!! why is this so relatable

  26. Alice-Chan Kayla

    He could let me go a thousand times but I wouldn’t be able to let him go...

  27. nellclarkk

  31. Janella Ner


  32. Linda N

    i don’t know how we got to where we are so far removed i donner know where to start. ( i ask myself how i even think i got this far, in my feelings, my way to feel about him.. about us )

    please hold on.. i beg you please hold on

    love don’t come easy to us ( universe. the cards that we’ve been dealt. unlucky isn’t it ? )

    and it’s killing me to hang on ( it was so hard to keep going feed the memories and don’t care about the things around )

    hope it’s enough ( it was for me )

    so i was just wondering
    could you tell me is it all a waste of time ??? 😭 ( apparently yeah )

    are you leaving my love behind ? ( now it’s over. it’s like bye thank u. next one )

    let me know !

    you gotta give me something i swear ( justify. your actions. what you have said and what you have done )

    that i won’t try to change your mind ( i would give up on u if you were honest. but you didn’t assume. i wouldn’t try to change your mind if you were honest with me )

    if you’re leaving my love behind ( if it was your plan you could’ve just let me know and i would understand )

    say the words and let me go ( you would let me go and that’s it )

    you used to wait up and talk for hours on end ( remember ? )

    it’s just got me thinking that.. lately something has changed

    conversations way too long
    i’m barely holding it ( when you were so weird. sometimes i wanted to give up )

  33. INSANE Arachnid

    Gold coast, you have some of my favorite lyric vids, just sayin


    . IHHHH

  35. Suraya Kosters

    After listening to his songs for over an hour, I only have one question remaning: Who hurted this poor boy???

  36. Merle Mitchell

    Sadly I've been trying to let you go, I don't want to hurt you anymore. My heart is hurting. You deserve to be happy with someone free.

  67. Lara-Anne Visser

    Yea, so this guy introduced me to Lewis Capaldi, but like I already listened his songs... But after he played it, it hit different. It's because I like this guy and now every time I hear one of Lewis's songs I can't help but think of him. Even though he will never like me more than friends, but yea thought I'd share🌺💕

    Also... Lewis Capaldi has an amazing voice and no matter in whatever mood I'am, I'm always in the mood for Lewis's songs💕💕💕

  68. Susan Alegria

    Ask... don’t be like me! That he just changed his number and did not look back! 3 years gone in a push of a button! 😔

    I don't know why I enjoy tormenting myself with these songs so much.

  85. Isobel Smyth


  86. Andwel’s Baker

    I love this song

  87. Thugpug _BVB

    The person who I love deeply and who I thought loved me has just completely shut me out for no reason and I don't know how to ask if this is the end of it all bc I don't know how to live w/o them if the answer is yes... so now I'm just playing this song on loop haha):

    Julissia Jones

    I'm going through a similar thing with my ex. I love him so much, but he's never felt the same about me. He's hurt me so many times, but I'd stay because he'd tell me that he *thought* he loved me. Now I'm trying to move on. I was tired of pining over him, of calling and getting his voicemail, tired of chasing after someone who couldn't care less about me. He calls more often now that I've stopped pursuing him. I don't know if it's because he misses me or because he wants to hurt me more than he already has. I can't give you any good advice, but I hope it helps to know that someone shares your pain, even if the circumstances are somewhat different. And I hope things work out :)
