Lewis Capaldi shares a new song titled “Hold Me While You Wait.” Capaldi’s new song arrives with its official lyric video whcih you can watch below. The single is off his Divinely Uninspired to a Hellish Extent album.
It is the second single from the album, following “Someone You Loved.” As Lewis puts it in his well-renowned Instagram stories, this song is about him wanting a cuddle with his girlfriend of six months after she unexpectedly tells him that she hates him. Lewis says,
Nothing a couple of hugs can’t fix.
In another statement, Lewis said,
“Hold Me While You Wait” is a song I wrote about the uncertainty of being in a relationship when your partner isn’t sure what they want. There’s an impending hopelessness to the whole thing, on both sides, when they’re not sure whether they want to be in that relationship or not. For me it’s one of the most desperate places you can find yourself in.
“Hold Me While You Wait” debuted at #4 in the UK singles chart while “Someone You Loved” was still at #1. He became the second artist to have two singles in the Top 5, the first artist to accomplish this being Ed Sheeran. The song debuted at #1 in the Irish and the Scottish singles charts.
I’m waitin’ up, savin’ all my precious time
Losin’ light, I’m missin’ my same old us
Before we learned our truth too late
Resigned to fate, fadin’ away
So tell me, can you turn around?
I need someone to tear me down
Oh, tell me, can you turn around?
But either way
