Lyrics

[Niall]
We made a fire
Went down in the flames
We sailed an ocean
And drowned in a wave
Built a cathedral
But we never prayed
We had it all, yeah
And we walked away

[Harry]
Point of no return
And now it's just too late to turn around
I try to forgive you,
But I struggle 'cause I don't know how
We built it up so high and now I'm fallin'
It's a long way down
It's a long way down from here

[Louis]
We had a mountain
But took it for granted
We had a spaceship,
But we couldn't land it
We found an island,
But we got stranded
We had it all, yeah
Who could've planned it?

[Liam]
Point of no return
And now it's just too late to turn around
I try to forgive you,
But I'm struggling 'cause I don't know how
We built it up so high and now I'm fallin'
It's a long way down from here
Such a long way down from here
It's a long way down
It's a long way down
Such a long way down
It's a long way down
It's a long way down
