  • If I could fly, I'd be coming right back home to you
    I think I might give up everything, just ask me to
    Pay attention, I hope that you listen 'cause I let my guard down
    Right now I'm completely defenseless

    For your eyes only, I'll show you my heart
    For when you're lonely and forget who you are
    I'm missing half of me when we're apart
    Now you know me, for your eyes only
    For your eyes only

    I've got scars even though they can't always be seen
    And pain gets hard, but now you're here and I don't feel a thing
    Pay attention, I hope that you listen 'cause I let my guard down
    Right now I'm completely defenseless

    For your eyes only, I'll show you my heart
    For when you're lonely and forget who you are
    I'm missing half of me when we're apart
    Now you know me, for your eyes only
    For your eyes only

    I can feel your heart inside of mine, I feel it, I feel it
    I've been going out of my mind, I feel it, I feel it
    Know that I'm just wasting time
    And I hope that you don't run from me

    For your eyes only, I'll show you my heart
    For when you're lonely and forget who you are
    I'm missing half for me when we're apart
    Now you know me, for your eyes only
    For your eyes only, I'll show you my heart
    For when you're lonely and forget who you are
    I'm missing half for me when we're apart
    Now you know me, for your eyes only
    For your eyes only
    For your eyes only Writer/s: Harry Edward Styles, Johan Jens Erik Carlsson, Ross Jacob Golan
