One Direction is contemplating how the "Night Changes" in its new single from its upcoming album FOUR. Today (Nov. 14), 1D released its follow up to "Steal My Girl" in anticipation of its new album release date on Monday, and the boys are getting slow and complicated.
Lyrically, "Night Changes" takes a deeper look at the "you only live once" theme seen in previous singles, such as "Live While We're Young" and "Best Song Ever." As a couple emerges from childhood to adulthood, One Direction think about seizing time while you have it and gaining love along the way.
"We're only getting older, baby / And I've been thinking about you lately / Does it ever drive you crazy / Just how fast the night changes? / Everything you've ever dreamed of / Disappears when you wake up / But there's nothing to be afraid of / Even when the night changes / It will never change me and you," the boys sing in the poignant chorus.
The contemplative lyrics, penned by One Direction members Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson, shows maturity and growth in the once perpetually lighthearted boy band. The rich harmonies in the chorus, backed by rounds of "Oohs" give the song added depth and a big contemplative feel.
