Here Are the Lyrics to Lewis Capaldi's 'Before You Go'

Lewis Capaldi's "Before You Go" locks down a second Billboard Hot 100 single for the Scottish singer-songwriter, following his No. 1 hit "Someone You Loved." The song debuted at No. 85 last week (chart dated Feb. 8).    

The melancholic ballad details the agony-inducing aftermath of a loved one dying by suicide, including feeling responsible by asking, "Was there something I could've said to make your heart beat better?" and "Was there something I could've said to make it all stop hurting?"

Check out the lyrics and music video below.

I fell by the wayside like everyone else
I hate you, I hate you, I hate you, but I was just kidding myself
Our every moment, I start to replace
'Cause now that they're gone, all I hear are the words that I needed to say

When you hurt under the surface
Like troubled water running cold
Well, time can heal, but this won't

So, before you go
Was there something I could've said to make your heart beat better?
If only I'd have known you had a storm to weather
So, before you go
Was there something I could've said to make it all stop hurting?
It kills me how your mind can make you feel so worthless
So, before you go

Was never the right time, whenever you called
Went little by little by little until there was nothing at all
Our every moment, I start to replay
But all I can think about is seeing that look on your face

When you hurt under the surface
Like troubled water running cold
Well, some can heal, but this won't

So, before you go
Was there something I could've said to make your heart beat better?
If only I'd have known you had a storm to weather
So, before you go
Was there something I could've said to make it all stop hurting?
It kills me how your mind can make you feel so worthless
So, before you go

Would we be better off by now
If I'd have let my walls come down?
Maybe, I guess we'll never know
You know, you know

Before you go
Was there something I could've said to make your heart beat better?
If only I'd have known you had a storm to weather
So, before you go
Was there something I could've said to make it all stop hurting?
It kills me how your mind can make you feel so worthless
So, before you go
