One Direction – Little Things lyrics

Your hand fits in mine
Like it's made just for me
But bear this in mind
It was meant to be
And I'm joining up the dots
With the freckles on your cheeks
And it all makes sense to me

I know you've never loved
The crinkles by your eyes when you smile
You've never loved
Your stomach or your thighs
The dimples in your back at the bottom of your spine

[Zayn + Liam]
But I'll love them endlessly

I won't let these little things slip out of my mouth
But if I do, it's you,
Oh it's you,
They add up to
I'm in love with you,
And all these little things

You can't go to bed,
Without a cup of tea,
And maybe that's the reason
That you talk, in your sleep
And all those conversations
Are the secrets that I keep
Though it makes no sense to me

I know you've never loved the sound of your voice on tape
You never want to know how much you weigh
You still have to squeeze into your jeans


[Harry + Niall]
You're perfect to me

I won't let these little things slip out of my mouth
But if it's true,
It's you,
It's you,
They add up to
I'm in love with you,
And all these little things

You'll never love yourself
Half as much as I love you
You'll never treat yourself right, darlin'
But I want you to,
If I let you know, I'm here for you,
Maybe you'll love yourself,
Like I love you


And I've just let these little things
Slip, out of my mouth,
'Cause it's you, oh it's you,
It's you,
They add up to
And I'm in love with you,
And all these little things,

I won't let these little things
Slip, out of my mouth,
But if it's true,
It's you, it's you,
They add up to,
I'm in love with you,
And all your little things

    I love this song for loads of different reasons. Firstly, the lyrics are phenomenal and they are well-writen by one of the band members, niall horan who is an amazing guy and he's really talented. Secondly, one direction have perfect vocals so the song sounds really nice. Lastly, and I think most importantly, it sends a message to directioners. It tells them that although you might hate your body and hate yourself, I think you are perfect just the way you are and that you should love yourself instead of always trying to change who you are. This is especially needed to most directioners because quite a lot of them have poor or not a lot of self confidence and if they hear from their idols that they are perfect then maybe they will love themselves more, have more self confidence and believe that they can do anything!

    This song is my favorite song by them because number one it is a song that I can relate to because I have a lot of insecurities and most of them are named in this song. Another reason I love it is because it stopped me from committing suicide more than once. At the time I kind of hated that I didn't do it but now I'm kind of glad they did because if they hadn't kept me alive through their music I would not have lived to be in a relationship with my great wonderful boyfriend, I would not have lived to see my 16th birthday last Sunday, I wouldn't have lived to see them in concert (along with 5SOS) also last Sunday. I wouldn't have had an amazing summer with my best friends and my cousin and family. I wouldn't have been complimented by Ashton. I am glad that I have One Direction to listen to. Because without them I wouldn't be here today. So this song means a lot to me. Even though I still kept cutting after that I still kept going because every time I contemplated suicide I listened to this song and it helped me through and it made me remember that they do love me and that their music is what keeps me alive. I thought of how much I love them. Without them I would have never made it through.
