Lyrics

[Niall]
Down to Earth
Keep on falling when I know it hurts
Going faster than a million miles an hour
Trying to catch my breath some way, somehow

Down to Earth
It's like I'm frozen, but the world still turns
Stuck in motion, and the wheels keep spinning 'round
Moving in reverse with no way out

[Liam]
And now I'm one step closer to being two steps far from you
When everybody wants you
Everybody wants you

[Harry]
How many nights does it take to count the stars?
That's the time it would take to fix my heart
Oh, baby, I was there for you
All I ever wanted was the truth, yeah, yeah
How many nights have you wished someone would stay?
Lie awake only hoping they're OK
I never counted all of mine
If I tried, I know it would feel like infinity
Infinity, infinity, yeah
Infinity

[Liam]
Eyes can't shine
Unless there's something burning bright behind
Since you went away, there's nothing left in mine
I feel myself running out of time

[Louis]
And now I'm one step closer to being two steps far from you
When everybody wants you
Everybody wants you

[Harry]
How many nights does it take to count the stars?
That's the time it would take to fix my heart
Oh, baby, I was there for you
All I ever wanted was the truth, yeah, yeah
How many nights have you wished someone would stay?
Lie awake only hoping they're OK
I never counted all of mine
If I tried, I know it would feel like infinity
Infinity, infinity, yeah

[All]
Infinity, infinity, infinity

[All]
How many nights does it take to count the stars?
That's the time it would take to fix my heart
Oh, baby, I was there for you
All I ever wanted was the truth, yeah, yeah
How many nights have you wished someone would stay?
Lie awake only hoping they're OK
I never counted all of mine
If I tried, I know it would feel like infinity
Infinity, infinity, infinity, infinity, yeah
Infinity

Reception

Billboard reviewed the track, stating "One Direction sounds vocally accomplished on “Infinity” in spite of the absence of Zayn Malik; fans should remain excited about the 1D’s highly anticipated new album" but noted an "unmemorable arrangement of kick drum and glistening guitar also helps “Infinity” sound hamstrung by its clumsy lyrics".[2]
