The song depicts all five members speaking fondly about a future point in time where they will meet again and have fun like they used to.

Background

On September 8, 2014, the band announced the release of their fourth album, Four, on the Today Show. The band lated tweeted about "Fireproof". On November 17, 2014 the boys announced new song "Act My Age".

The song has a distinct Irish sound and during live performances the concert lights become green, white and orange to represent the Irish flag. Towards the end of the song, the group can be heard laughing in the background.

"Act My Age" was added to the On The Road Again Tour setlist during the North American leg.

Lyrics

 
[Niall]
When I'm fat and old and my kids think I'm a joke
'Cause I move a little slow when I dance

[Liam]
I can count on you after all that we've been through
'Cause I know that you'll always understand

[All]
I won't act my age, no, I won't act my age
No, I'll still feel the same around you
Hey!

[Louis]
When I'm fat and old and my kids think I'm a joke
'Cause the stories that I told, I tell again and again

[Zayn]
I can count on you after all we got up to
'Cause I know that you truly understand

[All]
I won't act my age, no, I won't act my age
No, I'll still feel the same around you
I won't act my age, no, I won't act my age
No, I'll still feel the same and you will, too
Hey!

[Harry]
When I can hardly walk and my hair is falling out
We'll still stay up 'til morning
We'll throw the after-party, oh, yeah, oh, yeah

[All]
I won't act my age, no, I won't act my age
No, I'll still feel the same around you
I won't act my age, no, I won't act my age
No, I'll still feel the same and you will, too
Hey!
