[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

    It is talking about a guy or girl sad about her or his break up and is going to cut himself/herself and then he jumps off a bulding and dies to be with his/her bf/gf. The person only wants to be happy and they think that is the only way. So there. -. The person just wants to be happy with the other person and they think that is the only way which is not. They are just really really hurt and sad and want so badly to be happy agian. So they do that because that is the only way for them

    This song is not about suicide it's about a guy trying express his love for a girl. Heres some lyrics that prove he and she are not dead! Theres a pile of my clohes at the end of your bed. Close the door throw the keys ( he can't be telling a dead girl to throw the key)
    i wanna la beside you. Trembling hands touch skin. ( if she's dead her trmbling hands can't can't touch his kin.

    My meaning is memories that you could of shared with one of your closest mates and now you would have to say goodbye to them for a very long time.
