Critical Reception

ANDPOP writer Rebecca Mattina stated: "Jason Deruuuulo! This is the collaboration we didn’t even know we needed but are forever thankful we now have. Prepare yourselves for a delicate yet powerful ballad –reminiscent of previous LM songs like “Towers.” Jason’s soulful voice is a perfect mirror to the girls’ and harmonizes with Perrie beautifully. Props to Leigh-Anne for killing that last chorus!"[1]

Lyrics

Jesy:
When you hold me in the street
And you kiss me on the dancefloor

Jade:
I wish that it could be like that
Why can't it be like that
Cos I'm yours

We keep behind closed doors
Every time I see you I die a little more
Stolen moments that we steal as the curtain falls
It'll never be enough

Jesy:
It's obvious you're meant for me
Every piece of you it just fits perfectly
Every second, every thought
I'm in so deep
But I'll never show it on my face

But we know this,
We got a love that is hopeless

Perrie:
Why can't you hold me in the street
Why can't I kiss you on the dancefloor
I wish that it could be like that
Why can't we be like that
Cos I'm yours

Jason:
When you're with him do you call his name
Like you do when you're with me
Does it feel the same?

Would you leave if I was ready to settle down
Or would you play it safe and stay
Girl you know this
We got a love that is hopeless

Jason and Perrie:
Why can't you hold me in the street
Why can't I kiss you on the dancefloor
I wish that it could be like that
Why can't we be like that
Cos I'm yours

Jason:
And nobody knows
I'm in love with someone's baby

Leigh Anne:
I don't wanna hide us away

Jason:
Tell the world about the love we making'

Leigh Anne:
I'm living for that day, (and Jason: someday)

Jason:
Can I hold you in the street
Why can't I kiss you on the dancefloor

Jesy:
I wish that we could be like that
Why can't it be like that
Cos I'm yours, I'm yours

Leigh Anne (with Jason):
Oh,
Why can't you (hold me in the street)
Why can't I kiss you (on the dancefloor)
I wish that it could be like that

Leigh Anne (Jason):
(I wish)
Why can't we be like that
(I wish)
Cos I'm yours
(Cos I'm yours)

Perrie (with Jason):
Why can't I say that (I'm in love)
(I wanna shout it from the rooftops)
I wish that it could be like that
(Jason: I wish)
Why can't we be like that
(Cos I'm yours)

Jade:
Why can't we be like that
Wish we could be like that

Jade:
We keep behind closed doors
Every time I see you I die a little more
Stolen moments that we steal as the curtain falls
It'll never be enough

As you drive me to my house,
I can't stop these silent tears from rollin' down
You and I both have to hide
On the outside
Where I can't be yours
And you can't be mine

But we know this,
We got a love that is hopeless

Why can't I hold you in the street
Why can't I kiss you on the dancefloor
I wish that it could be like that
Why can't we be like that
Cos I'm yours

Why can't I say that I'm in love
I wanna shout it from the rooftops
I wish that it could be like that
Why can't it be like that
Cos I'm yours

Jesy:
It's obvious you're meant for me
Every piece of you it just fits perfectly
Every second, every thought
I'm in so deep
But I'll never show it on my face

But we know this,
We got a love that is hopeless

Perrie:
Why can't you hold me in the street
Why can't I kiss you on the dancefloor
I wish that it could be like that
Why can't we be like that
Cos I'm yours

Why can't I say that I'm in love
I wanna shout it from the rooftops
I wish that it could be like that
Why can't we be like that
Cos I'm yours

Leigh Anne:
I don't wanna live love this way
I don't wanna hide us away
I wonder if it ever will change
I'm livin' for that day
Someday...

Jesy:
When you hold me in the street
And you kiss me on the dancefloor
I wish that we could be like that
Why can't we be like that
Cos I'm yours
I'm yours!

Leigh Anne:
Oh,
Why can't you hold me in the street
Why can't I kiss you on the dancefloor
I wish that it could be like that
Why can't we be like that
Cos I'm yours

Perrie:
Why can't I say that I'm in love
I wanna shout it from the rooftops
I wish that it could be like that
Why can't we be like that
Cos I'm yours

Why can't we be like that
Wish we could be like that
