Lyrics

   
[Liam]
Been a lot of places.
I've been all around the world.
Seen a lot of faces.
Never knowing where I was.

On the horizon.
Mmm, well, I know, I know, I know, I know the sun will be rising
Back home.

[Niall]
Living out of cases,
Packing up and taking off.
Made a lot of changes
But not forgetting who I was.

On the horizon.
Ooh, well, I know, I know, I know, I know the moon will be rising
Back home.

[All]
Don't forget where you belong, home
Don't forget where you belong, home
If you ever feel alone, don't
You are never on your own

[Harry]
And the proof is in this song

I've been away for ages
But I've got everything I need.
I'm flicking through the pages.
I've written in my memory.

I feel like I'm dreaming.
Oh, so I know, I know, I know, I know that I'm never leaving.
No, I won't go.

[All]
Don't forget where you belong, home
Don't forget where you belong, home
If you ever feel alone, don't
You are never on your own

[Harry]
And the proof is in this song

[Louis]
Lights off when they should be on.
Even stars in the sky look wrong.

[Zayn]
Short days but the lights are long
When I think of the things I've done

[Louis]
Don't matter how far I'm gone

[Zayn]
I'm always free to run home

[All]
Don't forget where you belong, home
Don't forget where you belong, home (Don't forget it)
If you ever feel alone, don't
You are never on your own

[Zayn]
'Never, never, never

[All]
Don't forget where you belong, home
Don't forget where you belong, home (Don't forget it)
If you ever feel alone, don't
You were never on your own

[Harry]
And the proof is in this song

[Outro]

[All]
Home,

[Niall]
Don't forget it

[All]
Home, If you ever feel alone, don't
You are never on your own

[Liam]
And the proof is in this song

[Niall]
Never forget it this song
Don't forget it

[Liam]
 No one never forget it this song

[Zayn]
You were never...
