'Little Do You Know' full lyrics

Little do you know
How I'm breaking while you fall asleep
Little do you know
I'm still haunted by the memories
Little do you know
I'm tryna pick myself up piece by piece
Little do you know
I need a little more time

Underneath it all
I'm held captive by the hole inside
I've been holding back
For the fear that you might change your mind
I'm ready to forgive you but forgetting is a harder fight
Little do you know
I need a little more time

I'll wait, I'll wait
I love you like I've never felt the pain
I'll wait
I promise you don't have to be afraid
I'll wait
Our love is here and here to stay
So lay your head on me

Little do you know
I know you're hurting while I'm sound asleep
Little do you know
All my mistakes are slowly drowning me
Little do you know
I'm tryna make it better piece by piece
Little do you know I
I love you till the sun dies

Oh wait
Just wait
I love you like I've never felt the pain
Just wait
I love you like I've never been afraid
Just wait
Our love is here and here to stay
So lay your head on me

I'll wait (I'll wait)
I'll wait (I'll wait)
I love you like I've never felt the pain
I'll wait (I'll wait)
I promise you don't have to be afraid
I'll wait
Our love is here and here to stay
So lay your head on me
Lay your head on me
So lay your head on me
Cause little do you know I
I love you till the sun dies
