Too Much to Ask

Charted: 24 66

Songfacts®:

  • This delicate piano pop ballad was released as the third single from Flicker. Niall Horan sings of his heartbreak after splitting from his lover, hoping they regret ending it too.

    Tell me there are things that you regret
    'Cause if I'm being honest I ain't over you yet
    It's all I'm asking
    Is it too much to ask?


    The lyrics about a breakup immediately got fans wondering if Niall is singing about one of his famous ex-girlfriends such as Ellie Goulding or Selena Gomez.
  • Niall Horan co-wrote the song with regular One Direction songwriter Jamie Scott. It was produced by Greg Kurstin, who also helmed "This Town."
