"Night Changes" as written by Julian C. Bunetta, Jamie Scott Baylin, John Henry Ryan, Niall James Horan, Zain Javadd Malik, Liam James Payne, Harry Styles and Louis William Tomlinson....
Going out tonight
Changes into something red
Her mother doesn't like that kind of dress
Everything she never had she's showing off

Driving too fast
Moon is breaking through her hair
She said it was something that she won't forget
Having no regrets is all that she really wants

We're only getting older baby
And I've been thinking about it lately
Does it ever drive you crazy
Just how fast the night changes?
Everything that you've ever dreamed of
Disappearing when you wake up
But there's nothing to be afraid of
Even when the night changes
It will never change me and you

Chasing it tonight,
Doubts are running ‘round her head
He's waiting, hides behind a cigarette
Heart is beating loud, she doesn't want it to stop

Moving too fast
Moon is lighting up her skin
She's falling, doesn't even know it yet
Having no regrets is all that she really wants

We're only getting older baby
And I've been thinking about it lately
Does it ever drive you crazy
Just how fast the night changes?
Everything that you've ever dreamed of
Disappearing when you wake up
But there's nothing to be afraid of
Even when the night changes
It will never change me and you

Going out tonight
Changes into something red
Her mother doesn't like that kind of dress
Reminds her of a missing piece of innocence she lost

We're only getting older baby
And I've been thinking about it lately
Does it ever drive you crazy
Just how fast the night changes?
Everything that you've ever dreamed of
Disappearing when you wake up
But there's nothing to be afraid of
Even when the night changes
It will never change, baby
It will never change, baby
It will never change me and you

    General CommentI think its describing a boy and girl going out. The mother of the girl doesn't approve her outfit. The girl doesn't care and wants to go out and have a good time. The guy asks if shes ever thought about how fast their dates go by and how they are getting older. Although when she sleeps, her dreams go away when she wakes up; the boy reminds her that their relationship won't vanish when she wakes up. She has doubts, but he keeps reminding her that their love will never fade away as the night changes. Her mother is concerned that she will try to grow up to fast. He reassures her by saying their love will never change as the night changes.

    General CommentI do not think that this is a romantic song. If fact, I do not think that "he" plays a significant role in the story. I think it's about a mother consoling her daughter after her first sexual encounter. The young girl (daughter) want's it to happen but she wants it to be right and without regrets . The "night" is a metaphor for how quickly we all grow up. Reference to her own lost innocence and her worry over her daughter's dress choice leads me to believe that the mother recognizes her daughter's intentions. We all have hopes and dreams about how we want our lives.... and the lives of our loved ones...to play out. We all want to be the narrator of our life story. I'm guessing that maybe the experience was not exactly what the young girl anticipated it to be.. or maybe it was but I do not think that's the point. I think the mother is assuring her daughter that while absolutely everything is changing their relationship will not falter.
