It's You (stylized as iT's YoU), is a song by Zayn Malik. It is the third track of his debut solo album, Mind of Mine. It was released as the first promotional single on February 25, 2016.

"It's You" has self-reflective lyrics, expressing somewhat bitter sentiment, touching on "a love that is pain", and was inspired by the breakup of a relationship.[1]

Background

"It's You" was released as the album's first promotional single on February 25, 2016, along with its music video. Zayn performed "It's You" on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, on February 17, 2016 where the album's cover-art was also revealed.[2][3] "It's You" was inspired by the breakup of a relationship (possibly from Little Mix's Perrie Edwards), with Malik stating, "It was a form of therapy for me, and it did help me get through" some personal issues, while he was writing it. "It's You" is a slow R&B intimate ballad that showcases Malik's falsetto as he sings the song's title during the chorus.[4]

Lyrics

She got, she got, she got
Her own reasons for talking to me
She don't, she don't, she don't
Give a fuck about what I need

And I can't tell you why
Because my brain can't equate it
Tell me your lies
Because I just can't face it

It's you, it's you
It's you
It's you, it's you
It's you

I won't, I won't, I won't
Cover my scars
I'll let 'em bleed
So my silence
So my silence won't
Be mistaken for peace

Am I wrong for wanting us to make it?
Tell me your lies
Because I just can't face it

It's you, it's you
It's you
It's you, it's you
It's you

Could it be that it's a lesson
That I never had to learn?
I looked at it like a blessing
And now it's just a curse
I don't know why
I don't know why

It's you, it's you
It's you, it's you
It's you
