[Niall]
I figured it out
I figured out from black and white
Seconds and hours
Maybe we had to take some time


[Liam]
I know how it goes
I know how it goes from wrong and right
Silence and sound
Did they ever hold each other tight, like us?
Did they ever fight, like us?

[Harry]
You and I
We don't want to be like them
We can make it 'till the end
Nothing can come between
You and I
Not even the Gods above
Can separate the two of us
No, nothing can come between
You and I
Oh, you and I


[Zayn]
I figured it out
Saw the mistakes of up and down
Meet in the middle
There's always room for common ground


[Louis]
I see what it's like
I see what it's like for day and night

Never together
'Cause they see things in a different light, like us
But they never tried, like us

[Harry]
You and I
We don't want to be like them
We can make it 'till the end
Nothing can come between
You and I
Not even the Gods above
Can separate the two of us


[Zayn]
'Cause you and I

[All]
We don't want to be like them,
We can make it 'till the end
Nothing can come between
You and I
Not even the God's above
Can separate the two of us

No, nothing can come between
You and I
Oh, You and I
You and I
We can make it if we try
You and I
Oh You and I

    This song means that they want to only be with their girlfriends; they don't care about what anyone says or thinks. They don't care what she does. It says that nothing can come between their love. Nothing will separate them, ever. The boys do not want their relationships to be like others, which end in tragity. They want their relationships to be special.
    Also, did anyone else notice they said "gods"? I had a pjo fangirl moment there. :)

    I think it is more like they don't want to be like the boys' whose parents have divorced ended up. They feel like maybe they didn't fight for their relationship to stay in place. The boys don't want their relationships to end up like that, they want to last forever. They don't want to ever break up or divorce their significant other. I feel like this is really Zayn to Perrie since they're engaged now. But it could work for Louis and Eleanor as well since they've been together for so long.

    Saying that couples can be what they want and who they want, because it doesn't matter as long as they're happy (we don't want to be like them) also I think that it is like how relationships may seem luike a confusing battle at first but once you've figured it out these things could really work as long as you don't care about other people's opinions and that you can be the couple that you wnat to be together hence the name you and i

    I feel like they are talking about their girlfriends and how they don't care how old or what she looks like or what they go through together or apart they will always be you and I and also like if let's say Harry were to date a younger fan he wouldn't care about what anyone thought because it doesn't matter to him I feel like this whole album is about this that I said and me being a directioner I do have a favorite which is Harry so yeah they are basically staying that no matter what happens they will always be there for their girlfriends.

    In Niall's perspective, he said this song to him, was about the fans and that nothing can separate them from each other, other artists, them not being good enough, but that it doesn't matter that they will always stand together and we are in it together, maybe to the other boys this was about a girlfriend, like from Louis or Zayn's perspective this was about Eleanor or Perrie. Or Sophia to Liam, but is wouldn't know if Harry thought about this song for a girl, but most of Niall's thoughts on most of the songs about love are for the fans, because Niall hasn't ever been on love with anybody, that's what he says but he feels love for the fans, so that's how he can relate.
