"Walking In The Wind" as written by Jamie Scott, Harry Styles, John Ryan and Julian Bunetta....
A week ago you said to me
"Do you believe I'll never be too far"
If you're lost, just look for me
You'll find me in the region of the summer stars
The fact that we can sit right here and say goodbye
Means we've already won
A necessity for apologies between you and me
Baby, there is none

Awh, e had some good times, didn't we?
Awh, we had some good tricks up our sleeve
Awh, goodbyes are bittersweet
But it's not the end
I'll see your face again

You will find me
And you will find me
In places that we've never been
For reasons we don't understand
Walking in the wind
Walking in the wind

Yesterday I went out to celebrate the birthday of a friend
But as we raised our glasses up to make a toast
I realized you were missing

Awh, we had some good times, didn't we?
Awh, we wore our hearts out on our sleeve
Awh, goodbyes are bittersweet
But it's not the end
I'll see your face again

You will find me
And you will find me
In places that we've never been
For reasons we don't understand
Walking in the wind
Walking in the wind

I know I'll be your anchor
Just close your eyes and see
I'll be by your side
Any time you're needing me, oh yeah

You will find me
And you will find me
In places that we've never been
For reasons we don't understand
Walking in the wind
Walking in the wind
Walking in the wind

    My InterpretationThis song is definitely about two people that once were boyfriend and girlfriend, and after everything, they're still friends but the boy still likes her.

    A week ago you said to me
    "Do you believe I'll never be too far"
    If you're lost, just look for me
    You'll find me in the region of the summer stars
    The fact that we can sit right here and say goodbye
    Means we've already won
    A necessity for apologies between you and me
    Baby, there is none

    He is remembering moments with his ex, who he's still in love with. And he thinks it is nice that they remain with the friendship after it all happened. No heart feelings.

    Awh, e had some good times, didn't we?
    Awh, we had some good tricks up our sleeve
    Awh, goodbyes are bittersweet
    But it's not the end
    I'll see your face again

    He returns to remember the good times with her and thinks that it is not over yet, maybe, they will get back together again. He really hopes so.

    You will find me
    And you will find me
    In places that we've never been
    For reasons we don't understand
    Walking in the wind
    Walking in the wind

    He thinks that they will get back together when they least expect it. It will come along with time.

    Yesterday I went out to celebrate the birthday of a friend
    But as we raised our glasses up to make a toast
    I realized you were missing

    He remembered how she was used to be with him whenever they were out. He misses her a lot.

    I know I'll be your anchor
    Just close your eyes and see
    I'll be by your side
    Any time you're needing me, oh yeah

    He is saying that whenever she is sad and imagining bad things, he will help her, he will be there for her, he will be her anchor. He will be by her side anytime, like he have always did.

    My InterpretationI think this song can easily be interpreted as a love song between a couple, but I like to think of it as a song the boys (Harry) wrote for each other (One Direction). Harry was always the least vocal about One Direction getting back together, and I think this was his stance on the whole hiatus. He didn't have to speak out on the situation, because he wrote a song about it.

    Hear me out, 'History' is a song for the fans. I think 'Walking in the Wind' is the song for themselves. I look at it as the promise to each other that even though they're taking a (much needed) break, they will see each other again ("I'll see your face again"). This might be the optimist in me, but that's how I interpret the song.

    The songs starts with the idea along the lines of: "guys, we're doing it, we're taking a break. It'll be different, but don't worry we're still hear for each other and excited for each other." See below:

    If you're lost, just look for me
    You'll find me in the region of the summer stars
    The fact that we can sit right here and say goodbye
    Means we've already won


    It's about the time they've had together, the fun, the "good times" the "tricks up their sleeves" -- for me, this triggers images of Louis. See below:
    Aw, we had some good times, didn't we?
    Aw, we had some good tricks up our sleeve


    The break is referred to as the 'goodbye' ("goodbyes are bittersweet"). But they promise to each other that, "...it's not the end, I'll see your face again". See below:
    Aw, goodbyes are bittersweet
    But it's not the end
    I'll see your face again


    The song is about the opportunities that they now have. It's an exciting, yet scary time for them, full of possibilities. This is demonstrated in the lines below:
    "You will find me,
    And you will find me
    In places that we've never been
    For reasons we don't understand
    Walking in the wind"


    It's an idyllic concept, walking in the wind, imagery of being completely at ease and enjoying life. Taking opportunities as they come and their time to grow.

    Throughout the song their is the excitement of new opportunities, but the draw back to their friendship and the importance One Direction has in each of their hearts.

    This is my favorite song on the album, and I think that's because of my interpretation of the song, which may be far, far off!

    General Commentit's for zayn. in the first verse, you can see that the person asking "do you believe i'll never be too far?" is nervous about losing friends. the song is a conversation, reassuring that no matter how far away, they always be there for each other and support each other in spirit. there's an understanding, a sense of forgiveness, a sense of nostalgia but also hope.

    "you'll find me in the region of the summer stars", aka LA, aka where zayn ran off to and spent lots of time shortly after leaving the band.

    "yesterday, i went out to celebrate the birthday of a friend, and as we raised our glasses up to make a toast i realized you were missing" is sung by louis. there's a photo of louis at liam's birthday party, the first in-band birthday since zayn leaving and he looks a bit sad. obviously, this is just a fan interpretation but i'm reminded of it every time i hear this line.
