"History" as written by Edward James Drewett, Julian Bunetta, Wayne Anthony Hector, Liam James Payne, John Ryan and Louis William Tomlinson....
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?

No, they don't teach you this in school
Now my heart's breaking and I don't know what to do
Thought we were going strong
Thought we were holding on
Aren't we?

You and me got a whole lot of history
We could be the greatest thing that the world has ever seen
You and me got a whole lot of history
So don't let it go, we can make some more, we can live forever

All of the rumours, all of the fights
But we always find a way to make it out alive
Thought we were going strong
Thought we were holding on
Aren't we?

You and me got a whole lot of history
We could be the greatest thing that the world has ever seen
You and me got a whole lot of history
So don't let it go, we can make some more, we can live forever

Minibars, expensive cars, hotel rooms
And new tattoos, good champagne, and private planes
But we don't need anything
'Cause the truth is out
I realise that without you here like there's just a lie
This is not the end
This is not the end
We can make it you know it, you know

You and me got a whole lot of history
We could be the greatest thing that the world has ever seen
You and me got a whole lot of history
So don't let it go, we can make some more, we can live forever

You and me got a whole lot of history
We could be the greatest thing that the world has ever seen
You and me got a whole lot of history
So don't let it go, we can make some more, we can live forever

So don't let me go
So don't let me go
We can live forever
Baby don't you know
Baby don't you know
We can live forever

    General CommentI honestly love this song, I think it's one of their best yet.

    The song is pretty much self-explanatory but 'History' is a song that is very personal to the boys and to their fans, as it talks about the past 5 years as a band and being with their fans every step of the way. With their impending hiatus coming up next year (2016), I feel like this song was written for the fans as a way of saying that even though it may seem like the end, it's really not and they will be back. Louis promised us they would be back and 'History' feels like a promise from all of the boys :) They're asking the fans to not give up or let go while they're on their break and just wait for them to come back and make lots of new memories!

    My OpinionI think its about zayn and telling him that they have a whole lot of history together. I think its very sweet

    My InterpretationHonestly, i really don't think that this song is about their fans. In my opinion, this song is about someone that thought that the relationship that he or she used to have was going fine, but actually, it wasn't. So, he/she can't let go of it, they have too much history together to end up so easily like this.
