Lewis Capaldi took over the charts with his debut single Someone You Loved but what are the lyrics to the song? And what is it about?
Lewis Capaldi took over the charts for weeks with his single 'Someone You Loved' which he released in 2018 and there was a lot of speculation about who the song was about and what the lyrics mean.
The deep and meaningful tune was all anyone could sing and the lyrics are something we're pretty sure everyone knows by now.
Here’s everything you need to know about 'Someone You Loved', the song that secured Lewis' position as a chart-topper, including its lyrics, meaning and who it's about.
Who is Lewis Capaldi’s Someone You Loved about?
Lewis, 24, has been very honest and revealed the emotional song is about the end of a relationship and family bereavement.
He said during an interview with NME: “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.”
There was originally a lot of speculation the song was about Lewis' ex-girlfriend, Love Island star Paige Turley but he later revealed to an Australian music channel it's about his late grandmother.
Lewis said, "The song is not about a lady who I was in a romantic relationship. It's about my grandmother, who's dead, f**k."
Attempting to keep the conversation on the lighter note, Lewis continued, "She died a few years ago. Your classic death, not coming back that sort of thing."
What are Lewis Capaldi’s Someone You Loved lyrics?
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
