Lewis Capaldi - Maybe Lyrics

I've said a thousand things before
I've fallen in and out of love
I couldn't walk but tried to run
At night the weight of expectation seems to keep me up

A thousand times I said too much
Always second guess before I jump
I gave my all but not enough
And with the weight of expectation, I'll be sleeping rough

How come I'm the only one who ever seems to get in my way?
Lately, I've been fucking up a good thing any chance I can get

Somebody to lean on, somebody to hold
It's just another to lead on, before I let go
And I ain't tryna be lonely, slowly
But everything I touch turns to stone
Maybe you're better off on my own

A thousand times I've heard the same
A victim of the voices in my head
Let me assure you that my mind's in check
I just can't put my faith in something we might live to regret

How come I'm the only one who ever seems to get in my way?
Lately, I've been fucking up a good thing any chance I can get

Somebody to lean on, somebody to hold
It's just another to lead on before I let go
And I ain't tryna be lonely, slowly
But everything I touch turns to stone
Maybe you're better off on my own

Everything that I touch turns to stone
Maybe you're better off on my own
Everything that I touch turns to stone
Maybe you're better off on my own

How come I'm the only one who ever seems to get in my way?
Lately, I've been fucking up a good thing any chance I can get

Somebody to lean on, somebody to hold
It's just another to lead on before I let go
And I ain't tryna be lonely, slowly
But everything I touch turns to stone
Maybe you're better off on my own

Lewis Capaldi Maybe Comments
  1. Andrew McMillan

    definitely an inspiration in my music writing. he's so talented and easily connects these raw emotions. also, if anyone wants to check out my first single on spotify, itunes, youtube music and over platforms, please do! it's called The Ignorance by Andrew McMillan

  2. Stuart Wood

    not been a better singer come out of scotland since the proclaimers

  3. Sunny xox

    Tune sounds like grace

  4. Manuel Werner

    I love his music.

  5. arandum Hufflepuff

    The chorus hits. Sometimes it's really hard to realize that you should just not be part of a relationship until your mind is clear. You just want someone, but it's dangerous to risk hurting them

  6. EastEnders Fan page

    Whoever hurt Lewis Capaldi needs to hide 😭😭

  7. Clara Dupalco

    All the lyrics of his songs, really hits me inside 😭

  14. Rebecca Chebabo

    wow I love him it hits hard

  15. Wild Card

    Lewis Is an amazing singer and a I’ve noticed something about him. He sings with passion to where the highest lines he sings make the song HIS song. I find it refreshing that he doesn’t fake it like other singers

  16. Obi-Wan Kenobi

    He reminds me of Ed Sheeran somehow

    Pro Panda Pro

    Ye same

    Pro Panda Pro

    Hello There

  17. Michael Derengowski

    Everything I touch to stone
    I’ve already said too much
    It’s the vodkas talking
    Lately I’ve been fucking up every chance that I can get
    Maybe you’re better off on my own 🖤

  18. Raphael John Albert Dela Cruz

    Heard of love at first sight?
    On my dictionary... Love at first listen

  19. Katiamoon

    the second "lean on" is actually "lead, though"

  20. Ellie Largent

    *"i just can't put my faith in something we might live to regret"* this hit me sooooo deep i didn't think anyone else understood like that

  21. Sara Field

    Playboy shit! 😀

  27. Kinga Iwaniszyn


  28. finishcrisp

    That West Lothian accent has brought back the much missed, 'I've been singing the lyrics wrong for years' LOL

  29. Matthew Lawrence

    It's maybe you're better off on my own as a play on both perspectives of the that sentence

  30. Jorune Ziobaite

    Who gave this guy the right to get into my heart like this. Who.

  31. Simone Swaan

    It's : Maybe YOU'RE better off on my own

    Simone Swaan

    @Maddie Hudson Maybe, it's a sort of "LAUREL'' and "YANI'' kind of thing. I listened like 10 times now to be sure and I keep hearing You're, not I. Maybe it's just me WANTING to hear it, I guess.... But in terms of it not making any sense.. It is a song about a guy telling a girl to not cometo close, because he will fuck it up anyway. When you look at it like that, it makes perfect sense, even it's not correct in grammar. ( It could also be because I am NOT English, LOL)

    Maddie Hudson

    Simone Swaan It’s not really a “Laurel” and “Yanni” thing, it says the lyrics on google and if it says “you’re” it doesn’t make sense at all.

    Simone Swaan

    @Maddie Hudson And yet, 5 different lyric- videos on youtube, and at least 1 website with lyrics, says it IS You're....

    Maddie Hudson

    Simone Swaan but it’s not

  37. Kevin Parker92


  38. Jason Lee

  58. Mr. Pooba

    Great tune

  59. Unknown anymous

    This is weird confessing my problems to strangers but people around me tried their hardest to help me but made me more confuse. Not their fault but mine. I envy those who are faithful and religious towards their religion and right now as I entered my teenage years I am beyond confused to the point as I don't know which religion to Identity.

    Sorry for bothering you I know your going through your problems have a good day/evening

  60. Stephanie leigh

    This hit me hard 😪😭 just split up with my boyfriend and it was all my fault....

    Za Bidi BR

    It's okay, everything will be alright, you'll find someone again, but for now, try to give yourself some self-love

    Game Over

    Agreed give ure self some attention no one is worth that pain

  61. Scarlets World

    Time to learn this 🤪

  62. Bonnie Acton

    does anyone notice that the lyrics r wrong? They're meant to say "Somebody to lean on, somebody to hold. Its just another to lead, though, before i let go and i aint tyrna be lonely, solely but everything i touch turns to stone Maybe i'm better off on my own."

  63. litol ryry

  65. Louise Keates

  66. Masha V

    What does he mean by "maybe your better off on my own"?

    Nate Dawgg

    Maybe you’re better off.. if Im on my own. It’s like the person would be better off without Lewis in their life. It’s an awfully lonely lyric

  67. Michelle Laird

    Shouldn't it be 'another too little before i let go' and doesnt he say 'maybe your better off on my own' ??? 🤔🤔🤔

    Adele Brownieee

    Nope xD

  68. Eugine Tadeo

    Keep on writing songs like this. 🥰

  69. Lewis McIver

    Lewis’s voice is the only voice in Britain that everyone likes

  70. Niko S

    Maybe If Adele and One Republic make their clones probably Lewis Capaldi is their best child 😌

  71. Shannon Sexton

    Everything I touch turns to stone,
    Maybe I'm better off on my own!

  72. Mattie Williams

    Shannon Sexton

    Mattie Williams so I

    olivia pickford hodson

    Herpes_Free_Since_63 😂 ikr

  84. Atlas

    This is just for me to rant knowing that someone can read It because I feel really alone right now so feel free to ignore.

    My “girlfriend” just ended things with me last night. I started off as friends with her. She had a boyfriend until just a few weeks back. I blurted out that I was in love with her way sooner than I should have but I meant it, and the same night she told me she had to move because of her parents divorce. We were going to spend the next <2 months together and she came back to tell me that she doesn’t want to get attached so she’s ending what we have. I know it’s reasonable from her stance but I can’t deal with not having her, even though it’s inevitable I was going to lose her. I just wanted to get the good times in so I had something to remember. I know it would have lasted for a long time if she didn’t have to leave me. She made me happier than anyone else ever has and now she’s just the most recent in a line of painful relationships for me. I want to get over it but I’m still in love with her even after she said she wants to call it off. Now here I am, trying to move on from her but she became such a big part of my life, it feels like a massive chunk of my day is gone. It feels empty.

    Daniel Creamer

    You'll be fine

  85. Georgia Gillie

    Best song for heart break innit🥺💔

  86. Kory Koger

    Not a very good looking guy but amazing fucking voice

  87. lou

    feel like im fucking up all my friendships because im so goddamn insecure and anxious all the time.. like i'm so afraid of being rejected, i dont even try. can't ever let myself be happy, fuck it.

  88. lou

    this… is exactly how i feel right now. and it kinda hurts. my anxiety is paralysing, i'm pushing people away by avoiding them, and the more i do, the more i hate myself, and the harder it is to ignore it. i feel so fucking alone because no one gets it. but i don't blame them, cause the thing is, i don't either.

  89. Leah Prescott

    I made a semi joke/scientific conclusion from my brain,on twitter like "wow Lewis Capaldi's album would be INCREDIBLE to cry to when you've had your heart broken, someone fucking break my heart so I can cry to his album properly." That was this week. Yesterday all my friends stabbed me in the back and twisted the knife so deep that I will be scarred for life. Now I'm crying to ALLLLL his songs hysterically with that horrible feeling in the pit of my stomach and my heart literally breaking over and over again. So I mean I was right, his songs are great to sob to but Christ this hurts 😂😂😂😂
