[Liam] Shut the door
Turn the light off
I wanna be with you
I wanna feel your love
I wanna lay beside you
I cannot hide this
Even though I try
Heart beats harder
Time escapes me
Trembling hands touch skin
It makes this harder
And the tears stream down my face

[Harry] If we could only have this life for one more day
If we could only turn back time

[All] You know I'll be your life
Your voice
Your reason to be
My love, my heart
Is breathing for this
Moment in time
I'll find the words to say
Before you leave me today


[Niall] Close the door
Throw the key
Don't wanna be reminded
Don't wanna be seen
Don't wanna be without you
My judgement's clouded
Like tonights night sky

[Louis] Hands are silent
Voice is numb
Trying to scream out my lungs
It makes this harder
And the tears stream down my face


[Harry] If we could only have this life for one more day
If we could only turn back time

[All] You know I'll be your life
Your voice
Your reason to be
My love, my heart
Is breathing for this
Moment in time
I'll find the words to say
Before you leave me today

[Zayn] Flashing lights in my mind
Goin' back to the time
Playin' games in the street
Kickin' balls with my feet
There's a numb in my toes
Standing close to the edge
There's a pile of my clothes
At the end of your bed
As I feel myself fall,
Make a joke of it all

[All] You know I'll be
Your life, your voice your reason to be
My love, my heart
Is breathing for this
Moment in time
I'll find the words to say
Before you leave me today
You know I'll be
Your life, your voice your reason to be
My love, my heart
Is breathing for this
Moment in time
I'll find the words to say
Before you leave me today

    The meaning of the song is a guys girlfriend dies and the guy gets sooo depressed that he wants to kill himself and the part where zayn goes.
    "flashes went through my mind goin back to a time playin games in the street kickin balls with my feet theres a numb in my toes standin close to the edge theres a part of my clothes at the end of your bed as i feel myself fall make a joke if it all" is like the guys whole life is flashing before his eyes like they say it does when your about to die and its that one final thought that pushes him over the edge of a building.

    This song is about a guy who's girlfriend died and he feels like he can't live without her so he wants to commit suicide and in Zayn's solo he does. He thinks about all the memories they had together before she died. Ed Sheeran wrote the song for One Direction and its one of my favourite One Direction songs. Its a really emotional song and the first time I listened to it I actually burst into tears. Amazing song and the meaning could help a lot of people as it could relate to their life some how. One Direction saved my life and many other teenage girls too. People think this song is about other things but its not about sex or other things people have said it is about.

    This song is about a girl who has died and her boyfriend is thinking of the memories and how it used to be when she was alive and thinking if time could turn back he would give her everything she wanted and more and he would tell her how much she really means to him before she dies and then he can't take it no more so he kills himself to be with her.

    This song makes me just want to burst out in tears! Its one of my favorites (i love the whole album) but out of all the other songs this one just makes me want to cry its soo beautiful and all there voices are amazing! I can't get enough of this song! Although it makes me feel sad btw I had nooo idea louis and niall had a solo! I was frozen for a couple of mins when I found out! To me this songs meaning is just the same as everybody elses about the guy who just wants to be with this girl but shes dying.

    The overall meaning of this song is not s**. It's about a girl dying and her boyfriend is so heartbroken, he wants to comitt suicide. This whole song is just about him remembering all the good times they had together, but he knows he cant't get her back. I love this song soo much; it's my favorite 1d song. It's quite sad, but I really connected to it when my grandmother died. Well not all of it reminded me of her(there's a pile of my clothes at the end of your bed.) but the connection's still there! Thanks 1d for pulling out of the pit I was in, couldn't have done it without you! :)
