    Lyrics:
    You walked into the room and now my heart has been stolen
    You took me back in time to when I was unbroken
    Now you're all I want
    And I knew it from the very first moment
    'Cause a light came on when I heard that song and I want you to sing it again

    I swear that every word you sing, you wrote them for me
    Like it was a private show, but I know you never saw me
    When the lights come on and I'm on my own
    Will you be there to sing it again?
    Could I be the one you talk about in all your stories
    Can I be him?

    I heard there was somone but I know he don't deserve you
    If you were mine I'd never let anyone hurt you, no, no
    I wanna dry those tears, kiss those lips
    It's all that I've been thinking about
    'Cause a light came on when I heard that song and I want you to sing it again

    I swear that every word you sing, you wrote them for me
    Like it was a private show, but I know you never saw me
    When the lights come on and I'm on my own
    Will you be there to sing it again
    Could I be the one you talk about in all your stories?

    Can I be the one
    Can I be the one
    Can I be the one
    Oh, can I, can I be him?

    Won't you sing it again?
    Oh, when you sing it again
    Can I be him?
    Oh, sing it again, yeah
    Oh, when you sing it again
    Can I be him?

    I swear that every word you sing, you wrote them for me
    Like it was a private show, but I know you never saw me
    When the lights come on and I'm on my own
    Will you be there, will you be there?
    Can I be the one you talk about in all your stories
    Can I be him
    Can I be him
    Can I be him
    Can I be him?

    this song puts me in a different world that no one understands. his emotions get to me in this song. i don't even have feeling for anyone until i hear this song. i don't know who it is... but it's someone. i feel it. It makes me miss people i don't know. Thank You James Arthur for writing this song.
    sincerely,

    "now you're all I want" that says it all... that feeling sucks when you cannot find it reflecting back at you. and so the broken hearts will be there always.if I would describe the human race, it would be with a love song. this is our stories, so many of us go through this, if not all. but this is not love, the love is there already, this is pure romanticism, and it's beautiful.

    Tu es entrée dans la pièce
    Et mon cœur a été dérobé
    Tu m'as ramené au temps où je n'étais pas brisé
    A présent, tout est tout ce que je veux
    Et je l'ai su dès le tout début
    Car une lumière s'est posée sur moi quand j'ai entendu
    cette chanson
    Et je veux que tu la chantes à nouveau

    J'espère que chaque mot que tu chantes
    Tu les as écrits pour moi
    Comme si c'était un spectacle privé
    Mais je sais que tu ne m'as jamais vu
    Quand la lumière vient sur moi et que je suis seul
    Seras-tu là pour chanter à nouveau
    Pourrais-je être celui dont tu parles dans toutes tes
    histoires
    Puis-je être celui-là

    J'ai entendu qu'il y avait quelqu'un mais je sais qu'il ne
    te mérite pas
    Si tu étais mienne, je ne laisserai personne te faire du
    mal
    Je veux sécher ces larmes, embrasser ces lèvres
    C'est tout ce à quoi je pense
    Car une lumière s'est posée sur moi quand j'ai entendu
    cette chanson
    Et je veux que tu la chantes à nouveau

    J'espère que chaque mot que tu chantes
    Tu les as écrits pour moi
    Comme si c'était un spectacle privé
    Mais je sais que tu ne m'as jamais vu
    Quand la lumière vient sur moi et que je suis seul
    Seras-tu là pour chanter à nouveau
    Pourrais-je être celui dont tu parles dans toutes tes
    histoires
    Puis-je être celui-là

    Puis-je être celui
    Puis-je être celui
    Puis-je être celui
    Puis-je être celui-là

    Ne veux-tu pas chanter à nouveau
    Quand tu chantes à nouveau
    Puis-je être celui-là
    Ne veux-tu pas chanter à nouveau
    Quand tu chantes à nouveau
    Puis-je être celui-là

    J'espère que chaque mot que tu chantes
    Tu les as écrits pour moi
    Comme si c'était un spectacle privé
    Mais je sais que tu ne m'as jamais vu
    Quand la lumière vient sur moi et que je suis seul
    Seras-tu là pour chanter à nouveau
    Pourrais-je être celui dont tu parles dans toutes tes
    histoires
    Puis-je être celui-là
    Puis-je être celui-là
    Puis-je être celui-là
    Puis-je être celui-là

    this video is a fact on how relationships, feelings, and crush seems too complicated, i don't know if everyone really understands the real meaning of it, he was crushing on the girl who was already in a relationship. And then thinking about replacing her man, he finally find out, someone in the dark, all this time...looking at him.
    the right one..
