"End Of The Day" as written by Julian Bunetta, Wayne Anthony Hector, Jacob Kasher, Gamal Lewis, Liam James Payne, John Ryan, Louis William Tomlinson and Edward James Drewett....
I told her that I loved her, just not sure if she heard
The roof was pretty windy and she didn't say a word
Party died downstairs, had nothing left to do
Just me, her and the moon

I set you on fire babe
Than down came the lightning on me
Love can be frightening for sure

All I know at the end of the day is you want what you want and you say what you say
And you'll follow your heart even though it'll break
Sometimes
All I know at the end of the day is love who you love
There ain't no other way
If there's something I've learnt from a million mistakes
You're the one that I want at the end of the day

At the end of the day
You're the one that I want at the end of the day

Sure the night was over, I said it's forever
Twenty minutes later wound up in the hospital
The priest thinks it's the devil
My mum thinks it's the flu
But girl it's only you

I set you on fire babe
And down came the lightning on me
Love can be frightening for sure

All I know at the end of the day is you want what you want and you say what you say
And you'll follow your heart even though it'll break
Sometimes
All I know at the end of the day is love who you love
There ain't no other way
If there's something I've learnt from a million mistakes
You're the one that I want at the end of the day

When the sun goes I know that you and me and everything will be alright
And when the city's sleeping, you and I can stay awake and keep on dreaming
You and I can stay awake and keep on dreaming

All I know at the end of the day is you want what you want and you say what you say
And you'll follow your heart even though it'll break
Sometimes
All I know at the end of the day is love who you love
There ain't no other way
If there's something I've learnt from a million mistakes
You're the one that I want at the end of the day (at the end of the day)

At the end of the day
You're the one that I want at the end of the day (at the end of the day)
You're the one that I want at the end of the day

    Song Meaning// "I told her that I loved her, just not sure if she heard. The roof was pretty windy and she didn't say a word
    Party died downstairs, had nothing left to do. Just me, her and the moon" //
    This is in the perspective of someone who obviously has a crush on a girl. As I read this I imagine the narrator and the girl sitting alone on a rooftop while a party goes on downstairs.
    // "I said you're on fire babe. Then down came the lightning on me.
    Love can be frightening for sure" //
    The narrator confesses their love to the girl. Then "the lightning came down on me" I think means that someone or mutiple people told them no. "love can be frightening for sure" means that the narrator wasn't expecting what happened to their relationship.
    // "All I know at the end of the day is you want what you want and you say what you say. And you'll follow your heart even though it'll break sometimes. All I know at the end of the day is love who you love. There ain't no other way. If there's something I've learnt from a million mistakes, You're the one that I want at the end of the day."
    The chorus has quite a lot of meaning to it. Although it could be about a girl and a boy, I think this song about a same sex relationship. I think this because of the lyrics "you love who you love, there ain't no other way". The narrator sounds like a person who finally begins to accept themselves in terms of their sexuality. in the line "if there's something I learned for a million mistakes", it sounds as if they've tried to deny who they were before, maybe trying to fall in love with someone of the opposite sex but then to later learn that that wasn't who they were. but at the end of the day, they realized who they loved and wanted and the was no other way.
    // "Said the night was over, I said it's forever. Twenty minutes later wound up in the hospital. The priest thinks it's the devil. My mum thinks it's the flu. But girl it's only you." //
    This verse is what makes me really believe this song is about a same sex couple (I think girl and girl because they use female pronouns through the song but it could be about a boy and boy). the line "the priest thinks it's the devil", means that they think that love someone of the same gender is a sin. "my mum thinks it's the flu", means that their mum thinks that it's a phase. "but girl it's only you" means that no matter what people say about them, they truly believe that they love them. Then the second verse and chorus repeats.
    // "When the sun goes I know that you and me and everything will be alright. And when the city's sleeping, you and I can stay awake and keep on dreaming. You and I can stay awake and keep on dreaming". //
    This verse is self explanatory but they are talking about when they go to sleep, they believe that when they wake up, everything will be ok for them.
    Then the chourus repeats.

    General Commentmost of the fandom interprets this song as being about a same gender relationship (specifically between two girls). it highlights the potential anxieties and mishaps going into the relationship, but accepting them as apart of it since loving each other is, at the end of the day, all that matters.

    My InterpretationI do not take this as same-sex relationships only. I think it is about: a) saying "I love you" to a relationship that is at different levels in one party's eyes, then the next is the b) telling a crush that you like them, and then needing time to sort everything else. This is applicable to any sexuality.
