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

Chorus (Everyone):

It's gotta be you
Only 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
Don't be scared, I ain't going no where

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

Chorus (Everyone):

It's gotta be you
Only 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

Everyone:

One more, one more, can we try?
One more, one more,
Can we try one more time to make it all better?


Chorus (Everyone):

'Cause it's gotta be you
Its gotta be you
Only you
Oh, Only you

It's gotta be you
Only you
It's got to be you
Oh, Only you
