As The Saying Goes Lyrics

Lucy Spraggan – As The Saying Goes Lyrics

[Verse 1]
You stood and cleared your throat, then every word you spoke Seemed to fall out of your mouth, hit the ground, and explode
Something about the truth and that you wanted me to know
I was working all the time and how you hadn't been alone
You said that you were sorry, how it had been hell
It hadn't been at home 'cause you'd been in a hotel
You turned your phone towards me and I felt my world melt
'Cause I was looking at this picture of you and someone else
Cliché, clichéd, I know
But it's hard to give up hope
And as the saying goes

[Chorus]
It's better late than never
There's pride before a fall
It's better to have loved and lost than never loved at all
Hearts were built for breaking
If you love 'em, set them free
Time's the greatest healer and what will be will be
I just know that I miss you and none of it helps
Please come back to me

[Verse 2]
I walked through my front door to my car and drove straight to the bar
Sat down and looked at the scars across my arms
It all came flooding back, like I'd been sitting in the dark
How quickly I forgot that I had come so far
'Cause you were more than this, said I'd never do it again
'Cause you said it hurt to see me do it to myself
But that's all gone now and you're not here to help
Because you gave up on me just like everybody else
I wish that I'd been better, the person that you needed
I'm so much better than sitting here and bleeding
I'm not gonna let this get worse and take hold
I made a promise to myself and I'll make it home
And as the saying goes

[Chorus]
It's better late than never
There's pride before a fall
It's better to have loved and lost than never loved at all
Hearts were built for breaking
If you love 'em, set them free
Time's the greatest healer and what will be will be
I just know that I miss you and none of it helps
Please come back to me

[Bridge]
They all say I'll be fine, you'll barely cross my mind
Just give it time, oh, time
They all say I'll survive, you'll barely cross my mind
Just give it time, oh, time

[Chorus]
It's better late than never
There's pride before a fall
It's better to have loved and lost than never loved at all
Hearts were built for breaking
If you love 'em, set them free
Time's the greatest healer and what will be will be
I just know that I miss you and none of it helps
Please come back to me
