One Direction – If I Could Fly lyrics

[Verse 1: Harry & Liam]
If I could fly, I'd be coming right back home to you
I think I might give up everything, just ask me to

Pay attention, I hope that you listen cause I let my guard down
Right now I'm completely defenseless

[Chorus: Harry]
For your eyes only, I'll show you my heart
For when you're lonely and forget who you are
I'm missing half of me when we're apart

Now you know me, for your eyes only
For your eyes only

[Verse 2: Louis & Niall]
I've got scars even though they can't always be seen
And pain gets hard, but now you're here and I don't feel a thing
Pay attention, I hope that you listen cause I let my guard down
Right now I'm completely defenseless


[Chorus: All]
For your eyes only, I'll show you my heart
For when you're lonely and forget who you are
I'm missing half of me when we're apart
Now you know me, for your eyes only
For your eyes only

[Bridge: Louis & Harry]
I can feel your heart inside of mine, I feel it, I feel it
I'v been going out of my mind, I feel it, I feel it
Know that I'm just wasting time
And I
Hope that you don't run from me

[Chorus: Liam & Louis & Niall & (Harry)]
For your eyes only, I'll show you my heart
For when you're lonely and forget who you are
I'm missing half of me when we're apart
Now you know me, for your eyes only
For your eyes only
I'll show you my heart
(For when you're lonely)
And forget who you are
I'm missing half of me when we're apart
Now you know me, for your eyes only
For your eyes only
(For your eyes only)

    It's a love song written to Louis by Harry. This song means so much to me just because Harry wrote this for Louis. He also wrote "Olivia" about Louis considering they both tweeted #olive at the exact same time on the exact same day. Olivia means Olive (look it up if you don't believe me) and Olive is another way to say I love you. If you heard someone from England say "Olive" it was sound like either "I love you" or "I love" either way you want to put it. There's a video on YouTube (I don't know if its still there, look it up and if its not then I'm sorry but you can ask other Larry shippers and maybe they've seen it) of someone recording the song "If I could fly" and it was when those people went and heard it for the first time. Anyways, during the song, they played a lot of "Larry" videos which really stands out to me since I'm a Larry shipper. Now don't go and add something about this comment because you don't "ship" Larry. That aggravates me so much, so please take your negative comments else where because they are certainly not welcome on any of my rants/post. Thank you - Haley.
