SLS – Town

I could so easily have picked a Taylor song for today’s Song Lyric Sunday theme, but I resisted the urge. Instead I chose a gorgeous song from Niall Horan. I truly want you to listen to this song and fall in love with it like I did!

“This Town” is a song that I think has a slight sad tinge to it. It seems like a collection of all the things he wishes he had said to that girl, the one in his hometown. I adore this track.

The writing team behind “This Town” were Niall Horan, Jamie Scott, Mike Needle, Ruairi Sheridan and Daniel Bryer – job well done guys!!!

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
Mmmmm

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

‘Cause 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 ’bout you

‘Cause 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
Mmmm
Everything comes back to you
Mmmm

I think so too. I was never a 1D fan particularly, but I like that these boys can all find their own niche. Harry Styles confuses me….I have to admit…I am not sure what is going on with him. I love this song from Niall. I just like to see someone enjoying what they do.
