One Direction – History lyrics

[Harry]:
You gotta help me, I’m losing my mind
Keep getting the feeling you wanna leave this all behind
I thought we were going strong
I thought we were holding on
Aren’t we
?

[Niall]:
No, they don’t teach ya, 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
?

[Chorus]
You and me, got a whole lot of history (ohhh)
We could be the greatest
Team
That the world has ever seen
You and me got a whole lot of history
So don't let it go, we could make some more
We can live forever


[Liam]:
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?

[Chorus]
You and me, got a whole lot of history (ohhh)
We could be the greatest
Team
That the world has ever seen
You and me got a whole lot of history
So don't let it go, we could make some more
We can live forever

[Louis]:
Mini bars, expensive cars
Hotel rooms and new tattoos
And the good champaige and private planes
But they don’t mean, anything
Cause the truth is out, I’ve realized
That without you here, life is just a lie
This is not the end, this is not the end
We can make it, you know it, you know


[Chorus]
You and me, got a whole lot of history (ohhh)
We could be the greatest
team
That the world has ever seen
You and me got a whole lot of history
So don't let it go, we could make some more
We can live forever

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

[Harry]:
So don’t let me go
So don’t let me go

[All]:
We can live forever
[Harry]:
Baby don't you know
Baby don't you know
[All]:
We can live forever

    The whole song is about the band itself. The first verse is about Harry trying hard to keep the group together, and thinking that Zayn is gonna "leave it all behind" and he was right. Niall disapproves about Zayn leaving with the group. He then says they don't teach turning on your friends' back at school. Zayn broke his heart by leaving and he doesn't "know what to do". They thought they were going good all along but lately the band comes doubtful.
    Then they proceed to say they have a hell "lot of history" and they could "be the best team, the the world has ever seen!", surpassing the likes of Queen, The Beatles, and other legends. So they don't let it go... and complete their lifelong goal. The second verse has Liam talking about the rumours that surrounded them as a band. And they survived every single one.
    Repetition, saying they could beat the Beatles and bleh bleh...
    Louis then says that without you (the band) here nothing he've been through actually matters because they've helped each other into fame.
    Other stuff about beating the Beatles, and Harry then tells his other bandmates to "not let it go" and achieve their lifelong dreams.

    Can relate to this so much. My love has been so cold to me these past months. He barely replies to me. I barely see him and when I do, it still seems like he's so far away. I keep thinking he 'wanna leave this all behind'. I mean for all the things we've been through. How can he just leave this all behind? It's killing me. These time of life lessons are the ones you'll never learn in school. This is the side of life they don't show you. The bad part; the one which isn't always happy. But now, I still try to keep my faith. I still try to save this relationship. I'm going to try to convince you that if we stay together, 'we could be the greatest team that the world has ever seen'. So baby, please don't let it go, we can make some more, yeah, we could live forever.

    Basically it is talking about the relationship that had been going on for awhile. It might be something different and they have no experience on how to handle this. They had encountered numerous obstacles but always come out strong. One is hoping that the other will not give up on this relationship and believe that they are compatible and should see this relationship through. The person also feels that all the materialistic stuff is nothing without the other person. So hopefully love conquers all.
