Songfacts®:

  • Harry Styles co-wrote this piano-led tender ballad with producer Johan Carlsson, the same guy he wrote Ariana Grande's "A Little Bit of Your Heart" with. The other credited songwriter is Chicago native Ross Golan, whose credits also include Lady Antebellum's "Compass" and Prince Royce's "Stuck on a Feeling."
  • Like "A Little Bit of Your Heart," this is a lyrically vulnerable song with the guys letting their guard down, as they promise to show their hearts "for your eyes only."
