If I Could Fly is the sixth track from One Direction's album Made in the A.M. During 2018, Harry Styles performed the track solo during his live tour. This is the first time the song has ever been performed live.

Critical ReceptionEdit

Digital Spy writer Lewis Corner stated: "Get the box of tissues ready, because this is potentially One Direction's most tender ballad ever. Yep, even more emotional than 'Little Things'. It's a piano-led slow number that hears them let their guard down ("for your eyes only, I'll show you my heart"). It's no secret that the guys have been through a few ups and downs in their private relationships in recent years, and here Louis delivers the most poignant line ("I've got scars even though they can't always be seen")."

LyricsEdit

[Harry]
If I could fly, I'd be coming right back home to you
I think I might give up everything, just ask me to

[Liam]
Pay attention, I hope that you listen cause I let my guard down
Right now I'm completely defenseless

[Harry]
For your eyes only, I 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

[Louis]
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

[Niall]
Pay attention, I hope that you listen cause I let my guard down
Right now I'm completely defenseless

[All]
For your eyes only, I 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

[Louis and Liam]
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

[Harry]
Hope that you don't run from me

[Louis]
For your eyes only,

[Niall]
I show you my heart

[Harry]
For when you're lonely

[Liam]
And forget who you are

[Harry]
I'm missing half of me

[All]
When we're apart
Now you know me, for your eyes only

For your eyes only, I 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

[Harry]
For your eyes only
