Liam:
People say we shouldn’t be together
We're too young to know about forever
But I say they don’t know what they talk talk talkin’ about
(Talk talk talkin’ about)

Harry:
Cause this love is only getting stronger
And I don’t wanna wait any longer
I just wanna tell the world that your mine
Girl
Oh

Zayn:
They don’t know about the things we do
They don’t know about the I love you's
But I bet you if they only knew
They will just be jealous of us

All:
They don’t know about the up all nights
They don’t know I've waited all my life
Just to find a love that feels this right
Baby they don’t know about
They don’t know about us

Niall:
Just one touch and I was a believer
Every Kiss gets a little sweeter

Harry:
It’s getting better
Keeps getting better all the time girl

Zayn:
They don’t know about the things we do
They don’t know about the I love you's
But I bet you if they only knew
They will just be jealous of us

All:
They don’t know about the up all nights
They don’t know I've waited all my life
Just to find a love that feels this right
Baby they don’t know about
They don’t know about us

Louis:
They don’t know how special you are
They don’t know what you’ve done to my heart
They can say anything they want
Cause they don’t know about us

Niall:
They don’t know what we do best
That’s between me and you our little secret

Zayn*:
But I wanna tell 'em
I wanna tell the world that you’re mine girl

All:
They don’t know about the things we do
They don’t know about the I love you's (I love you)
But I bet you if they only knew *(if they only knew)
They will just be jealous of us *(just be jealous of us)
They don’t know about the up all nights
They don’t know I've waited all my life
Just to find a love that feels this right *(feels so right)
Baby they don’t know about
They don’t know about us

They don’t know about the things we do *(they don’t know about us)
They don’t know about the I love you's *(they don’t know about us)
But I bet you if they only knew *(they don’t know about us)
They will just be jealous of us
They don’t know about the up all nights *(up all night)
They don’t know I've waited all of my life *(all my life)
Just to find a love that feels this right *(right)
Baby they don’t know about
They don’t know about us

Zayn:
They don’t know about us

    This is an amazing song and I think it's about how some people don't understand a relationship and they will hate on the people in it. Yet, they don't know about the "I love you"s and how much the people in the relationship are loving each other. it's for all the people who think that 1D and their girlfriends don't belong together and that any girl isn't deserving of them. THEY ARE IN LOVE and you should always respect and love a loving relationship. They don't know about the true love between the people in the relationship. Yeah, that didn't sound like I wanted, but yeah. I love this song, it's my favorite, and there is just such beautiful instrumental.

    I think this song is about two young people in love but everyone is just so negative about it. This song helped me through my relationship. My friends were so mean to him and this song helped both of us. Thank you one direction for writing this song I love you guys.
