Been a lot of places.
I've been all around the world.
Seen a lot of faces.
Never knowing where I was.

On the horizon,
Oh, well I know I know I know I know the sun will be rising
Back home
.

Living out of cases.
Ain't packing up and taking off.
Made a lot of changes,
But not forgetting who I was
.

On the horizon,
Oh, well I know I know I know I know the moon will be rising
Back home.

Don't forget where you belong!
Home

Don't forget where you belong!
Home
If you ever feel alone,
Don't.
You were never on your own,
And the proof is in this song.

I've been away for ages.
But, I've got everything I need.
I'm flicking through the pages
I've written in my memory.

I feel like I'm dreaming.
Oh, so I know I know I know I know I'm never leaving.
I won't go.

Don't forget where you belong!
Home
Don't forget where you belong!
Home
If you ever feel alone,
Don't.
You were never on your own,
And the proof is in this song.

Lights off when they should be on.
Even stars in skies they're wrong.
Short days when the nights are long,
When I think of the things I've done.

Don't matter how far I've gone
I'm always feeling like home!

Don't forget where you belong!
Home
Don't forget where you belong!
(Don't forget it)
Home
If you ever feel alone,
Don't.
You were never on your own
Never, never, never.

Don't forget where you belong!
Home
Don't forget where you belong!
(Don't forget it)
Home
If you ever feel alone,
Don't.
You were never on your own,
(You were never)
And the proof is in this song.

Home
Don't forget it.
Home
If you ever feel alone,
Don't.
You were never on your own,
And the proof is in this song.

Never forget it.
This song.
Don't forget it!
No, I'd never forget it.
This song.
You were never.

    1. It about not losing yourself or who you are. Often times with fame people can lose sight of who they really are and let the fame change you. The message 'don't forget where you belong' is somewhat a reminder that no matter how big these boys may get they should remember their pasts and how it wasn't always like this.

    2. Not getting lost in the crowd. Again with fame sometimes you can get overwhelmed and fell lost in a sea of people. Being away from your loved ones can make you feel lonely and this is a reminder that there is always someone who loves them and will be there for them, but more importantly, that they will always be there for each other (If you eve feel alone, don't. You were never on your own and the proof is in this song).

    3. Reassurances to their loved ones back home. With touring, award shows, interviews, and promotions these guys spend a lot of time away from home and the people they love. This song was written as a sort of reassurance that no matter how far away they go for however long of a time, they'll always return to home.

    4. Staying together as a band. There have been plenty of rumors that the band are breaking up and solo careers so this is their message to each other and their fans that they belong in the band and no where else. ("I feel like I'm dreaming. Oh, so I know, I know, I know, I know that I'm never leaving. No, I won't go.") Also this is saying that when they're away for long periods of time that they are their own little sense of home. I find that this idea especially resonates in the line "Don't matter how far I've gone I'm always feeling at home." meaning that the boys are each others homes as well.

    These are just a few of my ideas of what the song is about.

    The songs about the boys not forgetting where they come from, they're still the boys from cheshire, wolverhampton, bradford, doncaster and mullingar, they're always be the same boys from home and its obvious in this song that they miss home a lot and they havn't forgotten about the united kingdom at all well done boy ily x
