Tighter Lyrics

by Fitz & the Tantrums

To be real is to understand
When I had you I was not completely in tune

'Cause I was blind, I let you drift away
I didn't give you enough to stay
So you made up my mind
And you walked away

And why didn't I
Hold you tighter than tighter?
When I could do no wrong
It's getting harder and harder

Why didn't I
Hold you tighter than tighter?
How could I be so wrong?

You can't hold on
To what is already gone
Come back, baby

Don't be strong, don't let it go
'Cause are you out there with someone else?
Are you telling him, no?

'Cause I could be your shelter from the rain
Come inside now, not gonna give you pain
'Cause I made up my mind, I walk away

And why didn't I
Hold you tighter than tighter?
When I could do no wrong
It's getting harder and harder

Why didn't I
Hold you tighter than tighter?
How could I be so wrong?

You can't hold on
To what is already gone
Come back, baby

And why?
Oh, why won't you believe in me?
Why?
Oh, why won't you believe in me?

Why didn't I
Hold you tighter than tighter?
When I could do no wrong
It's getting harder and harder

Why didn't I
Hold you tighter than tighter?
How could I be so wrong?

You can't hold on
To what is already gone
Ooh, ooh, ooh
