Something Great is a song by One Direction from their album, Midnight Memories. It is the twelveth track of the album.

Lyrically, the song depicts a man yearning for someone and wanting to create an idyllic life with them.

Background

The song is co-written by "Harry Styles" and, like "Strong" and Happily, is rumoured to be about his relationship with Louis Tomlinson. Particularly notable on this track is the complete omission of Louis's vocals until the very last lines, where his solo verse appears to "answer" the please of the previous verses.

Lyrics

 
[Liam]
One day you'll come into my world and say it all
You say we'll be together even when you're lost

[Zayn]
One day you'll say these words
I thought but never said
You say we're better off together in our bed

[Harry]
I want you here with me
Like how I pictured it
So I don't have to keep imagining

Come on, jump out at me
Come on, bring everything
Is it too much to ask for something great?

[Niall]
The script was written and I could not change a thing
I want to rip it all to shreds and start again

[Harry]
One day I'll come into your world and get it right
I'll say we're better off together here tonight

I want you here with me
Like how I pictured it
So I don't have to keep imagining

Come on, jump out at me
Come on, bring everything
Is it too much to ask for something great?

[Zayn]
I want you here with me
Like how I pictured it
So I don't have to keep imagining

[Harry/Zayn]
Come on, jump out at me
Come on, bring everything
Is it too much to ask for something great?

I want you here with me
Like how I pictured it
Is it too much to ask for something great?

[Louis]
You're all I want
So much it's hurting
You're all I want
So much it's hurting
