Sadly, I couldn't find the original version to the song, but this cover is also amazing. Definitely check it out if you haven't, enjoy!
If I could fly, I'd be coming right back home to you. Nothing can tear us apart because you are my everything, always my everything. Ask me whatever you want and I will give it all if I have to. Please don't hurt me as I'm slowly tearing myself down for you. Pay attention, this won't take long. I'm at my weakest moment, just for you.
Only you, I'll show what's inside this broken heart. Only me, promise to never forget who you are. I slowly see half of me in a lost dream as you slowly walk away. Know me, I beg. All anyone could ask is for your love. Your soft smile and your beautiful laugh. For your eyes only, it's my whole world. For your eyes only, I'll show you my heart.
I still got the scars. Those wounds don't fix themselves that's why I need you so much. The constant reminder of the pain caused wash away every time you touch me. Our love that can never be written can solve all the problem in this world. I am numb by this new realization, all I could do is write you a song.
For crying out loud, look at me. Hear my love out because I don't want to lose something so crucial in my life. Right now, I'm completely defenseless, what do I do?
Only you, I need to show you my heart. Only me, never let me go. I saw what was missing when you left. Desperately asking you for one more time. I need you to stay. For your eyes only, watch our love grow and blossom into this beautiful creation. For my eyes only, all I need is you.
Can you feel it? My love bursting through these words. What do I do? I've been going out of my mind. Haven't heard from you in a while. Is it over? Am I wasting my time? Only if I could fly, then you wouldn't run away from me.
For your eyes only, I showed you my heart. And when you were lost and lonely, I was there. Apart of me is missing because you took it. That's okay because you finally know me. If I could fly, I'd be coming right back home to you. Maybe then, we wouldn't be so apart.
If I Could Fly is one of the best ballads One Direction has ever produced by far. I've been a fan for quite a while and saw their music progress. With their new album, they showed variety of materials that is made just for their fifth album. When expressing my thoughts towards this record, I always find myself speechless at how beautiful the melody of it is. I can't really say anything more. The piano builds up and up and you just continue to carry this hopeful love, you never want it to end. You can hear them crying out for their love especially through their lyrics. I'm incredibly happy one of the members wrote this song because it's definitely one of their best work. Great work boys!
