Lyrics


Liam:


I tried playing it cool
Girl when I'm looking at you
I can't ever be brave
Cause you make my heart race

Harry:

Shot me out of the sky
You're my kryptonite
You keep making me weak
Yeah, frozen and can't breathe

Zayn:

Some things gotta give now
Cause I'm dying just to make you see
That I need you here with me now
Cause you've got that one thing

Chorus (Everyone):

So get out, get out, get out of my head
And fall into my arms instead
I don't, I don't, don't know what it is
But I need that one thing
And you've got that one thing

Niall:

Now I'm climbing the walls
But you don't notice at all
That I'm going out of my mind
All day and all night

Louis:

Some things gotta give now
Cause I'm dying just to know your name
And I need you here with me now
Cause you've got that one thing

Chorus (Everyone):

So get out, get out, get out of my head
And fall into my arms instead
I don't, I don't, don't know what it is
But I need that one thing
And you've got that one thing

So get out, get out, get out of my mind
And come on, come into my life
I don't, I don't, don't know what it is
But I need that one thing
And you've got that one thing


Harry:

You've got that one thing

Liam:

Get out, get out, get out of my head
And fall into my arms instead

Chorus (Everyone):

So get out, get out, get out of my head
And fall into my arms instead
I don't, I don't, don't know what it is
But I need that one thing
And you've got that one thing

Get out, get out, get out of my mind
And come on, come into my life
I don't, I don't, don't know what it is
But I need that one thing
And you've got that one thing
