Lyrics

[Verse 1]
You could be the night,
You could be the night sky
We don't need a bed time
It’s just you and I
We could have it, babe
We tryna grab it, babe
I don't wanna end up alone

[Pre-Chorus]
I’ve been broken, laying roses, petals on the floor
I'm better than before
Damn mistakes I've learned from heartache
I don't want another hole

[Chorus]
How long does it take to find somebody you love?
I wanna believe that I'm falling in love
I've been holding out, for so damn long
Knew in my heart, that I wasn't wrong
But darling, how long does it take to find somebody you love?
 
[Verse 2]
Out on the plane
Woke up in a new state
Falling on the bed, but I know I need to wait
You can stay the night, and I could do you right
But I won't be there by your side

[Pre-Chorus]
I've been broken
Laying roses, petals on the floor
But I'm better than before
Damn mistakes I've learned from heartache
I don't want another hole

[Chorus]
How long does it take to find somebody you love?
I wanna believe that I'm falling in love
I've been holding out, for so damn long
Knew in my heart, that I wasn't wrong
But darling, how long does it take to find somebody you love?

And when you're here we'll stay in bed, watching classics 2AM
Sipping wine, candlelights, in my head, late at night
Oh

[Bridge]
How long does it take to find somebody you love (you love)?
How long does it take to find somebody you, somebody you love?
Oh, no, no
I wanna believe that I'm falling in love
'Cause I've been holding out, for so damn long
Knew in my heart, that I wasn't wrong
But darling, how long does it take to find somebody you
Somebody you love
