After Harry Styles’ concert in Manila last week, and the upcoming Niall Horan concert this June, we can’t help but miss the good ol’ days of One Direction. It wasn’t long ago when we first fell in love with the boys on the stairs. We remember watching them singing their hearts out in The X Factor, and being silly during their video diary days.
But don’t get us wrong! We love that they are finally getting to do what they originally wanted to do. Since their hiatus in 2015, One Direction have gone their separate ways in terms of music.
Now that they’re doing their own thing, people are no longer afraid to listen to their ‘mainstream’ albums. No one can deny that they had good bops, and occasionally, songs that could potentially rip your heart out.
With the rise of Solo! One Direction, let’s give them the appreciation they deserve from when they were still a band.
Here are the best song lyrics from their One Direction days…
“Up All Night”
“When you stood there, just a heartbeat away when we were dancing and you looked up at me. If I had known then that I’d be feeling this way, if I could replay I would never have let you go.” – I Should Have Kissed You
“If we could only have this life for one more day, if we could only turn back time. You know I’ll be your life, your voice, your reason to be my love. My heart is breathing for this moment. In time I’ll find the words to say before you leave me today.” – Moments
“But I see you with him slow dancing, tearing me apart ’cause you don’t see whenever you kiss him, I’m breaking. Oh how I wish that was me.” – I Wish
“Take Me Home”
“I never understood what love was really like. But I felt it for the first time looking in your eyes.” – Loved You First
“You’ll never love yourself half as much as I love you. You’ll never treat yourself right, darling but I want you to. If I let you know I’m here for you, maybe you’ll love yourself like I love you.” – Little Things
“Did I do something stupid, yeah, girl if I blew it, just tell me what I did, let’s work through it. There’s gotta be some way to get you to want me like before.” – Nobody Compares
“They don’t know about the things we do. They don’t know about the ‘I love yous’ but I bet you if they only knew, they would just be jealous of us. They don’t know about the up all nights, they don’t know I’ve waited all my life just to find a love that feels this right.” – They Don’t Know About Us
“Written in these walls are the stories that I can’t explain. I leave my heart open but it stays right here empty for days.” – Story of My Life
“Diana, let me be the one to light a fire inside those eyes. You’ve been lonely, you don’t even know me but I can feel you crying. Diana, let me be the one to lift your heart up and save your life. I don’t think you even realize, baby you’ll be saving mine.” – Diana
“Pages between us written with no end. So many words we’re not saying, don’t wanna wait ’til it’s gone: you make me strong.” – Strong
“I’m feeling like right now I wish you were here with me. ‘Cause right now, everything is new to me.” – Right Now
“I wish that I could take you to the stars. I’d never let you fall and break your heart. And if you wanna cry or fall apart, I’ll be there to hold you.” – Through The Dark
“One day I’ll come into your world and get it right. I’ll say we’re better off together here tonight.” – Something Great
“So your friend’s been telling me you’ve been sleeping with my sweater and that you can’t stop missing me. Bet my friend’s been telling you I’m not doing much better, ’cause I’m missing half of me.” – Half A Heart
“Shadows come with the pain that you’re running from. Love was something you’ve never heard enough. Yeah, it took me some time but I figured out how to fix up a heart that I let down.” – Where Do Broken Hearts Go
“All I can do is say that these arms were made for holding you. I wanna love like you made me feel when we were eighteen.” – 18
“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.” – Fool’s Gold
“Made In The A.M.”
“I’m missing half of me when we’re apart. Now you know me, for your eyes only. 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.” – If I Could Fly
“One more taste of your lips just to bring me back to the places we’ve been and the nights we’ve had. Because if this is it then at least we could end it right.” – Love You Goodbye
“You’ve gotta help me, I’m losing my mind. Keep getting the feeling you want to leave this all behind. Thought we were going strong? I thought we were holding on? Aren’t we?” – History
