Lyrics


[Liam]
You tell me that you're sad and lost your way
You tell me that your tears are here to stay
But I know you were only hiding
And I just want to see ya

You tell me that you're hurt and you're in pain
And I can see your head is held in shame
But I just want to see you smile again
See you smile again

[Niall]
But don't burn out even if you scream and shout
It'll come back to you and I'll be here for you

[All]
Oh I would carry you over fire and water for your love
And I will hold you closer, hope your heart is strong enough
When the night is coming down on you
We will find a way

[Harry]
Through the dark

[Zayn]
I wish that I could take you to the start
I'd never let you fall and break your heart
And if you want to cry or fall apart,
I'd be there to hold ya

[Louis]
You tell me that your hurt it's all in vain
But I can see your heart can love again
And I remember you, you were laughing
So let's just laugh again

[Niall]
But don't burn out even if you scream and shout
It'll come back to you, back to you

[All]
Oh I would carry you over fire and water for your love
And I will hold you closer, hope your heart is strong enough
When the night is coming down on you
We will find a way

[Zayn]
Through the dark

And you don't need, you don't need to run
And you will see it's easy to be loved
I know you wanna be loved

[Liam]
Oh I will carry you over
Fire and water for you love...

[All]
Oh I would carry you over fire and water for your love
And I will hold you closer, hope your heart is strong enough
When the night is coming down on you
We will find a way

[Zayn]
Through the dark

[All]
Oh I would carry you over fire and water for your love
And I will hold you closer, hope your heart is strong enough
When the night is coming down on you
We will find a way

[Zayn]
Through the dark
