Lyrics

Perrie:
Dancing with your silhouette
In the places that we met
Oooh, tryna find you in the moon

Paris never feels the same
When the streets all call your name
Oooh, so I hide in crowded rooms

Leigh-Anne:
And I'll follow
Right down the river
Where the ocean meets the sky
To you, to you

Jade:
Once upon a time we had it all
And somewhere down the line we went and lost it
One brick at a time we watched it fall
I'm broken here tonight
And darling no one else can fix me
Only you, only you
And no else can fix me
Only you, only you, only you
And no else can fix me
Only you, oh

Only you

Jesy with Trevor:
Did I let go of your hand
For a castle made of sand
Oooh, that fell into the blue

I went following the sun
To be alone with everyone
Oooh, looking 'round a crowded room

Leigh-Anne with Trevor:
And I'll follow
Right down the river
Where the ocean meets the sky
To you, to you

Perrie with Trevor and Little Mix (Jade):
Once upon a time we had it all (Trevor: We had it all) (Mmm)
And somewhere down the line we went and lost it (Trevor: We went and lost it)
One brick at a time we watched it fall (Fall)
I'm broken here tonight
And darling no one else can fix me (No one else can fix me)
Only you (Only you)
Only you (Only you) (Perrie: Yeah)
And no one else can fix me, only you (Only you, yeah)
Only you, (Jesy: Nobody else)
Only you, (Trevor: Ohh)
And no else can fix me, only you

Perrie with Trevor:
Oh

Jade with Leigh-Anne:
Only you

Perrie:
Fallin', fallin', fallin', yeah

Jade with Little Mix (Trevor):
Only you (Only you)
Only you (Only you)
Oh no one else can fix me, only you (Perrie: Only you)
Only you (Perrie: Ohh) (Only you)
Only you (Only you)
And no one else can fix me
Only you

Perrie:
Dancing with your silhouette
In the places that we met
Oooh, tryna find you in the moon

Paris never feels the same
When the streets all call your name
Oooh, so I hide in crowded rooms

Leigh-Anne:
And I'll follow
Right down the river
Where the ocean meets the sky
To you, to you

Jade:
Once upon a time we had it all
And somewhere down the line we went and lost it
One brick at a time we watched it fall
I'm broken here tonight
And darling no one else can fix me
Only you, only you
And no else can fix me
Only you, only you, only you
And no else can fix me
Only you, oh

And no else can fix me
Only you, only you

And no else can fix me
Only you

Jesy with Trevor:
Did I let go of your hand
For a castle made of sand
Oooh, that fell into the blue
