Jacob Collier – He Won’t Hold You Lyrics

He Won’t Hold You By Jacob Collier

He won’t hold you
Like I do
He won’t bring out
The love in you

I been feeling down and out lately
Baby since you left me
Been so long since your body held me
Won’t you come and save me

I never was misunderstood baby
Since the day you met me
But now I’m lost, I’m on my own, I feel so lonely
Won’t you resurrect me

And all across
From all around
The people make
A people sound
They dance along
The avenue
Of what I thought I knew

And all across
From all around
The people make
A people sound
They dance along
The avenue
Of what I am to you

I won’t
Be alright
I would
Be alright
I won’t
Be alright
I would
Be alright

(Rapsody rap)
Things rearrange
We miss what is not the same
I learned the value
Of what we had taught by pain

Caught the rain, used it to wash my wounds
Learned the other side’s grass wasn’t as green
I bloomed, I grew

Took separation to get closer to you
You didn’t let go and I held onto
Your arms were my armor, karma cut us loose
You learned value I learned truth

No one holds me down the way you do
But your feelings I let spill over and over and over
Just a cover for insecurities
I couldn’t show the hell
I had to face myself, my fears, my feels

Now I know there’s nothing I can’t do
I dance in the rain knowing I can swim too
Found liberation, found my freedom
Where it begins is without you
I understand now, my love
My only one, without you

And all across
From all around
The people make
A people sound
They dance along
The avenue
Of what I thought I knew

And all across
From all around
The people make
A people sound
They dance along
The avenue
Of what I am to you

I won’t
Be alright
I would
Be alright
I won’t
Be alright
I would
Be alright
