[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, (fall) one more time? (one more time)
Stop the tape (stop the tape) and rewind (and rewind)
Oh and if you walk away I know I'll fade
'Cause there is nobody else

[Harry]
It's gotta be you oh~
Only you
It's got to be you oh~
Oh only you
Hey

[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 no where

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

[Harry]
It's gotta be you oh~
Only you
It's got to be you oh~
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 oh
It's gotta be you oh oh oh~
Oh only you oh~
Only you
It's gotta be you oh oh~
Only you
Only you
Hey

    The guy messed up and tore the girl's heart apart. The guy still loves the girl and wants one more chance.

    The song's about a guy who's begging his girl for another chance. Seems like the guy did something disappointing to the girl. Anyway, carrots, potatoes, turtles, curls and vain forever. ;) only directioners can understand that. Can't wait for uan on the 21st of november!

    Its about a relationship where he messed up and just wants his girl back. So he is telling her how much he wants her and that she is the only one for him. If she leaves him he wont be able to bear it.
