Better Than Words is a song by One Direction from their third album, Midnight Memories. It is the fourteenth track of the album. The song was featured on the Where We Are Tour and the On The Road Again Tour.

Background

Liam Payne came up with the idea to use titles of other songs as lyrics in the verses. Every line in each verse (except the bridge) is the title of a popular song. This plays into the theme of not being able to properly describe something so good, so they use other "words" to do so.

The song is about sex and the live performances of the song are the band's most overtly sexual.

During the band's 1D Day livestream, Zayn and Liam previewed exclusive audio of the band writing and recording the song.

Lyrics

  
[Harry]
Better than words
But more than a feeling (ow)
Crazy in love
Dancing on the ceiling

[Liam]
Every time we touch
I'm all shook up
You make me wanna... *sigh*
How deep is your love?
God only knows, baby

[Chorus]
Woo
I don't know how else to sum it up
'Cause words ain't good enough, ow
There's no way I can explain your love, no
Ah, woo
I don't know how else to sum it up
'Cause words ain't good enough, ow
I can't explain your love, no

[Zayn]
It's better than words (better than words)

[Niall]
Ooh oh ooh, ooh oh ooh, ooh ooh oh!

[Zayn]
Better than words

[Louis]
Better than words
You drive me crazy
Someone like you
Always be my baby

[Niall]
Best I ever had
Hips don't lie
You make me wanna *sss*
One more night
Irreplaceable, yeah
Crazy, we're crazy

[Chorus]
Ah, woo
I don't know how else to sum it up
'Cause words ain't good enough, ow
There's no way I can explain your love (there's no way I can explain your love), no
Ah, woo
I don't know how else to sum it up
'Cause words ain't good enough, ow
I can't explain your love, no

[Louis]
Everyone tries (they try)
To see what it feels like (feels like)
But they'll never be right
'Cause it's better, it's better, it's better

[Liam]
Ooh oh ooh, ooh oh ooh, ooh ooh oh!
One more time
Ooh oh ooh, ooh oh ooh, ooh ooh oh!
Better than words

[Chorus]
Ah, woo
I don't know how else to sum it up (I don't know)
'Cause words ain't good enough, ow
There's no way I can explain your love, no
Ah, woo
I don't know how else to sum it up (sum it up)
'Cause words ain't good enough, ow (the words ain't good enough)
I can't explain your love, no

[Zayn]
It's better than words

Ooh oh ooh, ooh oh ooh, ooh ooh oh!
It's better than words
Ooh oh ooh, ooh oh ooh, ooh ooh oh!
It's better than words
Ooh oh ooh, ooh oh ooh, ooh ooh oh!
