Fool's Gold - One Direction Lyrics

I’m like a crow on a wire,
You’re the shining distraction that makes me fly home.
I’m like a boat on the water,
You’re the rays on the waves that calm my mind.
Oh every time.
But I know in my heart, you’re not a constant start

And yeah, I let you use me from the day that we first met
But I’m not done yet,
Falling for your fool’s gold.
And I knew that you turn it on for everyone you’ve met,
But I don’t regret falling for your fool’s gold.

I’m the first to admit that I’m reckless.
I get lost in your beauty and I can’t see two feet in front of me.
And i know in my heart, you’re just a moving part.

Chorus: Harry

Yeah I know your love’s not real,
But that’s not the way it feels.
That’s not the way you feel.

Chorus: Harry
