Bruises singer took over the charts with his debut single but what are the words to the song? And what is it about?
Lewis Capaldi took over the charts for weeks with single, Someone You Loved which he released in 2018.
The deep and meaningful tune was all anyone could sing but what are the lyrics to the hit song? And what do they mean?
Here’s everything you need to know including where it entered the charts and when it was released:
I'm going under and this time I fear there's no one to save me
This all or nothing really got a way of driving me crazy
I need somebody to heal
Somebody to know
Somebody to have
Somebody to hold
It's easy to say
But it's never the same
I guess I kinda liked the way you numbed all the pain
Now the day bleeds
And you're not here
To get me through it all
I let my guard down
And then you pulled the rug
I was getting kinda used to being someone you loved
I'm going under and this time I fear there's no one to turn to
This all or nothing way of loving got me sleeping without you
Now, I need somebody to know
Somebody to heal
Somebody to have
Just to know how it feels
It's easy to say but it's never the same
I guess I kinda liked the way you helped me escape
And I tend to close my eyes when it hurts sometimes
I fall into your arms
I'll be safe in your sound 'til I come back around
Lewis, 23, has been very honest and revealed the emotional song is about the end of a relationship and family bereavement.
He said during an interview: “Over the course of making this album, for example, there were a couple of bereavements in my family and stuff like that, and I wanted to write a song that could be applicable to both my relationship ending, which I was writing a lot about, and then this bereavement thing.”
Putting Lewis on the map, his song went in at number one for seven weeks in the UK and even impressed America as it topped the Billboard charts there too.
