One Direction – Act My Age lyrics

[Verse 1: Niall]
When I'm fat and old
And my kids think I'm a joke
Because I move a little slow when I dance


[Hook: Liam]
I can count on you
After all that we been through
Cause I know that you'll always understand


[Chorus: All]
I won't act my age
No, I won't act my age
No I'll still feel the same around you

[Verse 3: Louis]
When I'm fat and old
And my kids think I'm a joke
Because the stories that I've told
I tell again and again


[Hook: Zayn]
I can count on you
After all we got up to
Because I know that you'll truly understand


[Chorus: All]
I won't act my age
No, I won't act my age
No, I'll still feel the same around you
I won't act my age
No, I won't act my age
No, I'll still feel the same and you will too


[Bridge: Harry]
When I can hardly walk and my hair is falling out
We'll still stay up 'til morning
We'll throw an after party
Oh yeah, oh yeah
!

[Chorus: All]
I won't act my age
No, I won't act my age
No, I'll still feel the same around you
I won't act my age
No, I won't act my age
No, I'll still feel the same and you will too

    I think this song is really a great love song from the boys to each other. It makes me think of my good friends I've had for years and all the crazy stuff, drinking and partying we have gotten up to all this time - I want to dedicate this to them, because they were in it with me, and we don't care that we're getting into our 40's now, we'll still throw the after-party!

    I think they are talking about when they brake up as a band and that they won't ever act they're age with they're wives. I sure hope that One Direction will never brake up. I think that in the One Direction movie Louis Tomlinson said that he's scared about his future and I think that this song might be to do with that a bit.

    This song is about friends (the boys) talking about how they won't grow up and how they will stay young even if they are physically old. And that they will still be friend into old age and remember the dances, concerts, and all their old antics that they pulled on others. This is talking about they boys will always be friends and always be there to support each other even in old age no matter what anybody else thinks.
