A.M. is a bonus track on the deluxe version of Made in the A.M. It was globally released on November 13, 2015.

Lyrically, it describes being with friends and reflecting on memories of good times shared.

Background

The song was written by Harry, Louis, Liam, Niall, Julian Bunetta, Ed Drewett, Wayne Hector and John Ryan.

Niall describes the song as "self-explanatory" stating "it was an easy title to pick because we already had the song. A lot of the sessions we did, we'd always end up going into the studio late. It's a simple four chord song that anyone can play. Sitting round with your friends, you can picture it. It's the end of the night, after a big party and there's a few of you left, and you're all just sitting around and talking crap. They're the times you always remember. If you can't remember what happened at 2am you can remember what happened at 6am."[1]

Julian Bunetta told Rolling Stone about how the song was written: "This one was written in a black cab while driving around London. Literally driving around London with a guitar and a laptop. 'A.M.' is the perfect example of the album's layers and levels. On the surface, the title of the album is because of a lyric in this song on the album, right? But then, just as a cheeky nod and ode because of Up All Night and Midnight MemoriesMade in the A.M.establishes a theme. You can sort of go from there. In terms of our personal experiences together, the times we spend writing and the times we spend opening up to each other, there are so many meanings. Hopefully the listeners will get that after a long time of listening to this. That was the goal."[2]

Lyrics

[Harry]
Won't you stay 'til the A.M.?
All my favourite conversations
Always made in the A.M (yeah yeah)

[Niall]
Feels like this could be forever tonight
Break these clocks, forget about time
There could be a World War 3 goin' on outside
You and me were raised in the same part of town
Got these scars on the same ground
Remember how we used to kick around just wasting time?

[Harry]
Won't you stay 'til the A.M.?
All my favourite conversations
Always made in the A.M
Cause we don't know what we're saying
We're just swimming round in our glasses
And talking out of our asses
Like we're all gonna make it (yeah, yeah)

[Liam]
Feels like this could be forever right now
Don't wanna sleep cause we're dreaming out loud
Trying to behave but you know that we never learned, how
You and me were raised in the same part of town
Got these scars on the same ground
Remember how we used to kick around just wasting time?

[All]
Won't you stay 'til the A.M.?
All my favourite conversations
Always made in the A.M
Cause we don't know what we're saying
We're just swimming round in our glasses
And talking out of our asses
Like we're all gonna make it (yeah, yeah)

[Harry]
You know I'm always coming back to this place
You know
And I'll say
You know I'm always gonna look for your face
You know

[Harry]
Won't you stay 'til the A.M.?
All my favourite conversations
Always made in the A.M
Cause we don't know what we're saying
We're just swimming round in our glasses
And talking out of our asses
Like we're all gonna make it (yeah, yeah)

[All]
Won't you stay 'til the A.M.?
You know I'm always coming back to this place
Won't you stay 'til the A.M.? (yeah, yeah)
You know
Won't you stay 'til the A.M.?
You know I'm always gonna look for your face
Won't you stay 'til the A.M.? (yeah, yeah)
