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 show you my...

    This is a very emotional song written about missing someone and being willing to give up anything to be with them. It's saying how for her eyes only that he will show her his love for when she's lonely and missing him. He's missing half of him when there apart and he just needs her, she is essential for him in his eyes.

    A very emotional and troubling song. This song is and always will be about Larry. That's the reason for the song's meaning not being discussed. Lastly, I'd like to just say I can't wait for my idols(H&L) to be free from this management mess and be able to come out as they truly are. And for you dumb antis suck my ass you know damn well this is about Larry.

    Missing someone who is just so far away. Long distance relationships are so hard. At the end you just have to say goodbye.

    Larry is real. Harry is Louis' home and he's calling him back to him from the beards (eleanor,Danielle,etc) and they can fly away from management. It is very emotional and always makes me cry my eyes out. I hope larry can be out someday :(

    A lot of people say this is about Larry but I disagree.
    I think it's about their family's and how they don't ever get to see them.
    "If I could fly, I'd be coming right back home to you"
    THey hardly ever get to see their family's and It gets hard
    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"
    For the boys their family will always be comforting because they've been there through it all so when they're with them they forget about the stress of touring and the famous life.
    So they're saying if they could fly they'd go home back to their family's where they feel safe.

    As fellow directioners, I hope you all know that when Harry played/sang this song for Liam, Liam started crying. People can say that it's about an ex-gf of Harry's, but he's never really been in an invested or long-term relationship, so who else could it be about? Louis. This entire song screams Larry. It's about wanting to be with someone so badly, and how Harry put his entire trust in this person (Louisssss) and loves them without end, yet cannot be with him.

    While Harry was writing If I could Fly, Louis was on the other side of the world writing Home, this song is about Larry, that is all.
