Harry: Circles, we're going in circles
Dizzy's all it makes us

We know where it takes us we've been before
Closer, maybe looking closer
There's more to discover
Find out what went wrong without blaming each other

Zayn:Think that we got more time
When we're falling behind
Gotta make up our minds

All: Or else we'll play, play, play all the same old games
And we Wait, wait, wait for the end to change
And we take, take, take it for granted
That we'll be the same
But we're making all the same mistakes

Liam: Wake up, we both need to wake up
Maybe if we face up to this
We can make it through this
Closer, maybe we'll be closer
Stronger than we were before, ya
Made this something more, yeah

Zayn: Think that we got more time
When we're falling behind
Gotta make up our minds

Or else we'll play, play, play all the same old games
And we Wait, wait, wait for the end to change
And we take, take, take it for granted
That we'll be the same
But we're making all the same mistakes

Yeah, yeah, that's what crazy is
When it's broken, you say there's nothing to fix
And you pray, pray, pray that everything will be okay
While you're making all the same mistakes

Don't look back,
But if we don't look back,
We're only learning then,
How to make all the same mistakes,
Same mistakes again,

So we play, play, play all the same old games
And we Wait, wait, wait for the end to change
And we take, take, take it for granted
That we'll be the same
But we're making all the same mistakes

Yeah, yeah, that's what crazy is
When it's broken, you say there's nothing to fix
And you pray, pray, pray that everything will be okay
While you're making all the same mistakes

    I think the title of the song speaks for itself, it is about a relationship that is not working out because one of the parts involved keeps screwing everything again and again, and even when they try to start from zero it keeps happening despite their intentions to make everything better

    I think this song is about a breakup. When things dont work out between two people and they realize that they cant stay together anymore because they only ever fight or as the lyrics say "play all the same games" and deny that theres anything wrong between them "when its broken you say theres nothing to fix" thats what i think

    It's about a couple always fighting over the same thing and having an on and off relationship.
    And i can't stand not saying it their names are:
    Harry edward styles (not edward harry)
    Louis william tomlinson
    Niall james horan
    Zayn (or zain) jawaad (not javadd) malik
    Liam james payne
    Sorry, i just had to correct...

    Many are commenting here with annoying grammar and spelling. They say they love 1d so much, so what ? If you really love someone, you don't have to boast it to everyone! And just to remind you, spelling zayn by zain are both correct. Infact zayn's real name is zain. Check your grammar first before posting.
