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, baby
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 2 a.m.
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
