"Hard To Swallow" as written by Josh Franceschi, Max Helyer, Matt Barnes, Chris Miller and Dan Flint....
It seems so hard to swallow, you keep your thoughts by your pillow.
Just so you can adore them, and just so we can ignore them.
I'd rather lead than follow, I'd rather stay and not go home.
My moves have got so old, or so I've been told.

But now you've lost it all.

We're running out of time
We've got things on our mind, and things that we just don't like
Who d'you want to see?
Who d'you want to be tonight?

Forgetting the promises you make,
Is how your, your promises easily break.
You sit on the fence, and now I'll take on the risk.
I'll count my losses, and I'll count my fears.

I hope you've cleared your head.

We're running out of time
We've got things on our mind, and things that we just don't like
Who d'you want to see?
Who d'you want to be tonight?

We're running out of time
We've got things on our mind, and things that we just don't like
Who d'you want to see?
Who d'you want to be tonight?

We were young and we were blind,
We ignored the warning signs.
How were we to know?
How were we to know?

We were close but still so far,
We grew apart and out of touch,
All I wanted was,
All I wanted was to sing.

We're running out of time
We've got things on our mind, and things that we just don't like
Who d'you want to see?
Who d'you want to be tonight?

We're running out of time
We've got things on our mind, and things that we just don't like
Who d'you want to see?
Who d'you want to be tonight?

Tonight?
Tonight?
Tonight?
Tonight.

    General Commenti think a lot of those lyrics are wrong! here's my interp:

    It seems hard to swallow
    You keep your thoughts by your pillow
    Just so you can adore them
    And just so we can ignore them
    I'd rather lead than follow
    I'd rather stay and not go home
    My moves have got so old
    Or so I've been told

    But now you've lost it all

    We're running out of time
    We've got things on our mind, and things that we just don't like
    Who d'you want to see?
    Who d'you want to be tonight?

    Forgetting the promises that you make
    Is how your, your promises easily break
    You sit on your fence
    And I'll take on the risk
    I'll countmy losses
    And I'll count my fears
    And I hope you've cleared your head (?)

    We're running out of time
    We've got things on our mind, and things that we just don't like
    Who d'you want to see?
    Who d'you want be tonight?

    We're running out of time
    We've got things on our mind, and things that we just don't like
    Who d'you want to see?
    Who d'you want be tonight?

    We were young and we were blind
    We ignored the warning signs
    How were we to know, how were we to know?
    We were close but still so far
    We grew apart and out of touch
    All I wanted, all I wanted was to say

    We're running out of time
    We've got things on our mind, and things that we just don't like
    Who d'you want to see?
    Who d'you want be tonight?

    We're running out of time
    We've got things on our mind, and things that we just don't like
    Who d'you want to see?
    Who d'you want be tonight?
    Tonight, tonight, tonight
    Tonight

    General CommentThis is incredible.
    For me it was one of them songs where i listened to the first verse and though it was ok.
    didnt really grab my attention.

    But when the chorus kicked in, I knew it was definitely gonna be a favourite!

    Same thing happened with "Theres no such thing as accidental infidelity"
