"A While" as written by Gabrielle Aplin and Luke Benjamin Potashnick....
When it rains, yeah it rains
We can be so unforgiving
It leaves us unforgiven
We're the same, we never change
Its the reason we’re together
We’re just waiting for the weather to pass

I’ve been rolling my days away
Come turn out the light that keeps me awake
I’ve been trying to sleep for a while
There'll be nothing left to talk about
And no one left to hear
In a while, we’ll throw water on these ashes
And these walls will disappear
For a while, we’ve been caught in the cold light of day

Lost our luck, you put it down
Somewhere for safe keeping
Too safe, you don’t remember
But it’s okay, we'll make some more
It''s you that I'll be needing
Not these books that we’ve been reading too long

I’ve been rolling my days away
Come turn out the lights that keep me awake
I’ve been trying to sleep for a while
There'll be nothing left to talk about
And no one left to hear
In a while, we’ll pour water on these ashes
And these walls will disappear
For a while, we’ve been caught in the cold light of day

I’ve been rolling my days away
Come turn out the light that keeps me awake
I’ve been trying to sleep, I've been trying to sleep for a while
There'll be nothing left to talk about
And no one left to hear
In a while, we’ll pour water on these ashes
And these walls will disappear
For a while, we’ve been caught in the cold light of day
