Louis Tomlinson's 'Bigger Than Me' full lyrics


All of these voices, all of these choices
I don't hear them anymore
Hear them anymore

When somebody told me I would change
I used to hidе behind a smile
When somеbody told me I would change
I was afraid, I don't know why
'Cause so does the world outside, I realised

And it's bigger than me
It's bigger than me
I've woken up from my sleep
It's bigger than me
It's bigger than me

So, come on, call me "Liar"
Yeah, you're so quick to judge
'Cause, yeah, I might have changed
But everybody does

All of those voices, all of those choices
I don't hear them anymore
Hear them anymore[Intro]
When somebody told me I would change
I used to hide behind a smile
When somebody told me I would change
I was afraid, I don't know why
'Cause so does the world outside, I realised

I didn't read the signs
Walkin' different lines
I know I took a left
Tryna make it right

When somebody told me I would change
I used to hide behind a smile
When somebody told me I would change
I was afraid, I don't know why
'Cause so does the world outside, I realised

And it's bigger than me
It's bigger than me
I've woken up from my sleep
It's bigger than me
It's bigger than me

Do you ever ask why? It's not black and white
How d'you sleep at night when you're just like me?
Ooh-ooh, 'cause I feel alive
Now I realise that the world outside

It's bigger than me
It's bigger than me
I've woken up from my sleep
It's bigger than me
It's bigger than me
