One day you'll come into my world and say it all
You say we'll be together even when you're lost
One day you'll say these words
I thought but never said
You say we're better off together in our bed

I want you here with me
Like how I pictured it
So I don't have to keep imagining

Come on, jump out at me
Come on, bring everything
Is it too much to ask for something great?

The script was written and I could not change a thing
I want to rip it all to shreds and start again
One day I'll come into your world and get it right
I'll say we're better off together here tonight

I want you here with me
Like how I pictured it
So I don't have to keep imagining

Come on, jump out at me
Come on, bring everything
Is it too much to ask for something great?

I want you here with me
Like how I pictured it
So I don't have to keep imagining

Come on, jump out at me
Come on, bring everything
Is it too much to ask for something great?

I want you here with me
Like how I pictured it
Is it too much to ask for something great?

You're all I want
So much it's hurting
You're all I want
So much it's hurting

    Louis' solo is the best out of the whole song; his solos are always the best. He is my favorite out of One Direction. He is gorgeous and awesome. In my opinion, he has the best voice out of all of them. No one's gonna agree, though. Love you Louis :) You're my idol and my inspiration and you're just so funny that you keep me going in life. Anyone remember 'Quickfire', 'Spin the Harry' and 'Megamind'? Louis always made me laugh so hard during those. He really does keep me going in life and he's awesome.

    Now to the song. It means that they want to be with someone really badly, but they can't for some unknown reason. They want to know if it really is too much to ask for something great. They want the person to know how much they love them and how much they want to be with them and that it hurts them so much that they can't, for some unknown reason, be together. Just like when it says 'I want you here with me, like how I pictured it, so I don't have to keep imagining'. They're saying that they want the person with them, so they don't have to imagine being with them anymore; they can be with them in real life.

    That's what I think.

    This song is by far the most well written in the album "Midnight Memories." It does have a hidden meaning to it. But you don't have to over analyze it because the song really speaks for itself. The Love. The Hurt. The longing for each other. It really captures the listeners emotions.

    It's just so perfect that the whole song is written by Harry (and the guy from snow patrol) and the "main text" is about someone asking for another someone to tell him how much he loves i'm and wants them to be together and then there's the end of the song with Louis singing this which is practically the answer to the whole song, telling Harry how much he loves him and Harry knew Louis will sing it and Harry gave Louis that part to sing and that Louis will tell him exactly what he asked for in the song. That's why I love it so much. Btw Louis' voice sounds like honey mixed with concentrated blood of billion angels flowing over chocolate in that part.
