Lyrics

[Liam]
Girl I see it in your eyes you’re disappointed
‘Cause I’m the foolish one that you anointed
With your heart, I tore it apart
And girl what a mess I made upon your innocence
And no woman in the world deserves this
But here I am asking you for one more chance

[Harry]
Can we fall, one more time
Stop the tape and rewind
Oh and if you walk away I know I’ll fade
‘Cause there is nobody else
It's gotta be you only (All: you)
It's got to be (you) oh only (you)

[Liam]
Now girl I hear it in your voice and how it trembles
When you speak to me I don’t resemble
Who I was, you’ve almost had enough
And your actions speak louder than words
And you’re about to break from all you’ve heard
But don’t be scared, I ain’t going nowhere

[Zayn]
I’ll be here by your side
No more fears, no more crying
But if you walk away I know I’ll fade
'Cause there is nobody else

[Harry]
It’s gotta be you only (All: you)
It’s got to be (you)
Oh, only (you)

[Zayn]
Oh girl, can we try one more, one more time
One more, one more, can we try
One more, one more time, I’ll make it better

[All]
One more, one more, can we try
One more, one more

[Zayn]
Can we try one more time to make it all better

[Harry]
Cause it's gotta be you
It's gotta be you
Only you
Only you
It's gotta be you only (All: you)
It's got to be (you)
Oh only (you)
