Fingers
by Zayn

Album: Icarus Falls (2018)

Songfacts®:

  • Zayn wrote and recorded this laid-back R&B song in London during the summer of 2018. The sultry slow burner tells the tale of the singer's pursuit of a girl. Zayn's love is so intense he can't even text her because his "fingers ain't broken, but my heart is." However, she is not forthcoming in replying leaving the brooding singer feeling confused and desperate.
