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
But I know, I know, I know, I know
The sun will be rising back home

[Niall]
Leaving out the cases
Ain't packing up and taking off
Made a lot of changes
But not forgetting who I was
On the horizon
But I know, I know, I know, I know
The moon will be rising back home

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

[Harry]
And the proof is in this song
I've been away for ages
But I got everything I need
I've flicken 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, oh
Don't forget where you belong, oh
If you ever feel alone, don't
You were never on your own
Harry: And the proof is in this song

[Louis]
Lights up
And they should be on
Even stars in the sky they're wrong
Zayn: Short days where the nights are long
When I think of the days I'm gone
Louis: Don't matter how far I'm gone
Zayn: I'm always feeling like home

[All]
Don't forget where you belong, oh
Don't forget where you belong, oh
If you ever feel alone, don't
You were never on your own
Zayn: Never, never, never

Don't forget where you belong, oh
Don't forget where you belong, oh
If you ever feel alone, don't
You were never on your own
Harry: And the proof is in this song

[Outro]
All: Oh, Niall: don't forget it
All: Oh, If you ever feel alone, don't
You were 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...
