Lucy Spraggan - As The Saying Goes Lyrics




You stood and cleared your throat
Then every word you spoke
Seemed to fall out of your mouth hit the ground and explode
Something about the truth and that you wanted me to know
I was working all the time and that you hadn't been alone

You said that you were sorry, how it had been hell

It hadn't been at home, cause you'd been in a hotel
Turned your phone towards me
And I felt the world melt
Cause I was looking at a picture of you and someone else

Cliched, cliched I know
But it's hard to give up hope
As the saying goes

It's better late than never
There's pride before a fall
It's better to have loved and lost, than never loved at all
Hearts were built for breaking
If you love them set them free
Times the greatest healer
And what will be will be
I just know that I miss you
And none of it helps
Please come back to me

I walked from the front door to my car
And drove straight to the bar
Sat down
Looked at the scars across my arms
It all came flooding back, like I was sitting in the dark
How quickly I forgot that I had come so far

You were more than this
Said I'd never do it again
Because you said it hurt to see me do it to myself
But that's all gone now
And you're not here to help
Because you gave up on me just like everybody else

I wish that I'd been better
The person that you needed
I'm so much better than just sitting here and bleeding
I'm not gonna let this get worse and take hold
I made a promise to myself, and I'll make it home

Well as the saying goes

It's better late than never
There's pride before a fall
It's better to have loved and lost, than never loved at all
Hearts were built for breaking
If you love them set them free
Times the greatest healer
And what will be will be
I just know that I miss you
And none of it helps
Please come back to me

They all say I'll be fine
You'll barely cross my mind, just give it time, ohh time
They all say I'll survive
You'll barely cross my mind, just give it time, ohh time

It's better late than never
There's pride before a fall
It's better to have loved and lost, than never loved at all
Hearts were built for breaking
If you love them set them free
Times the greatest healer
And what will be will be
I just know that I miss you
And none of it helps
Please come back to me

    You are my favourite singer 👩🏻‍🎤 ever. I wish I can see you in person. I live in Manchester but next time you in Manchester I hope I can see you.

    Ok this song hit me hard, she's got a knack for powerful lyrics and hitting the nail right on the head. If you've ever been there, you know. This bit in particular gives me chills every time:
    "I'm so much better than just sitting here and bleeding
    I'm not gonna let this get worse and take hold
    I made a promise to myself, and I'll make it home"
    She's got so much strength, it's infectious 🙌 One step at a time. YOU CAN DO THIS! You are not alone xXx

    I don't usually comment on YouTube. But I just wanted to say that your music really really helps me. I've been in and out of inpatient treatment for PTSD and suicide and self harm etc. When I was inpatient 10 months ago, my bestfriend ran away from the ward. She was only 14. Maziellie Mackenzie took her own life. She was a major fan of yours and she loved to sing. Your music got us both through some very dark times and me and the other patients would sing your songs on the ward whenever things got difficult. Without your music most of us wouldn't have made it- thankyou for giving me a life line and thankyou for making our lives a little brighter. Mazies favourite song was beer fear and she sang Jeremy kyle everytime he came on TV. Thankyou. thankyou so much ❤

    Keep fighting sweet heart. I've been fighting PTSD related anxiety for almost 10 years. I've fought through bad relationships and loss of jobs because of it. But I'm still here and I will shout it to the world. At 25 I have 3 beautiful boys, aged 3yrs - 1mth. It will get better, you will learn how to cope. As long as you remember you have the capability of strength. Be stronger then the pain and know happiness! Have the courage to take chances, it makes all the difference. Much love!

    Ellie Marie

    @Edith Morrison thankyou so much. Stay strong yourself! Sending all the strength and love your way hun
