This Town

Album: Flicker (2016)
Charted: 9 20
  • Waking up to kiss you and nobody's there
    The smell of your perfume still stuck in the air
    It's hard
    Yesterday I thought I saw your shadow running round
    It's funny how things never change in this old town
    So far from the stars

    And I want to tell you everything
    The words I never got to say the first time around
    And I remember everything
    From when we were the children playing in this fairground
    Wish I was there with you now

    If the whole world was watching I'd still dance with you
    Drive highways and byways to be there with you
    Over and over the only truth
    Everything comes back to you

    I saw that you moved on with someone new
    In the pub that we met he's got his arms around you
    It's so hard
    So hard

    And I want to tell you everything
    The words I never got to say the first time around
    And I remember everything
    From when we were the children playing in this fairground
    Wish I was there with you now

    As if the whole world was watching I'd still dance with you
    Drive highways and byways to be there with you
    Over and over the only truth
    Everything comes back to you
    You still make me nervous when you walk in the room
    Them butterflies they come alive when I'm next to you
    Over and over the only truth
    Everything comes back to you

    And I know that it's wrong
    That I can't move on
    But there's something about you

    If the whole world was watching I'd still dance with you
    Drive highways and byways to be there with you
    Over and over the only truth
    Everything comes back to you
    You still make me nervous when you walk in the room
    Them butterflies they come alive when I'm next to you
    Over and over the only truth
    Everything comes back to you
    Everything comes back to you Writer/s: Niall James Horan, Daniel John Donald Bryer, Michael David Needle, Jamie Scott
