Spaces is the tenth track on One Direction's fourth album Four.

It was briefly added to and subsequently removed from the On The Road Again Tour setlist during the North American leg.

Background

On September 8, 2014, the band announced the release of their fourth album, Four, on the Today Show. The boys, along with the band account, then tweeted about "Fireproof". On November 17, 2014, the band announced new track "Spaces".

Lyrically, the song has become very poignant in the wake of Zayn leaving the band, as it examines the wearing down of a strong relationship over time and features the line "Who's gonna be the first one to say goodbye?".

It is also the inspiration for the name of the band's fourth fragrance 'Between Us". The commercial features visual references to the lyrics.

Lyrics

[Niall]
Who's gonna' be the first one to start the fight?
Who's gonna' be the first one to fall asleep at night?

[Louis]
Who's gonna' be the last one to drive away?
Who's gonna' be the last one to forget this place?

[Zayn]
We keep taking turns, will we ever learn?

[All]
The spaces between us keep getting deeper
It's harder to reach ya'
Even though I've tried
Spaces between us, hold all our secrets
Leaving us speechless and I don't know why

[Niall]
Who's gonna' be the first to say goodbye?

[Liam]
Who's gonna' be the first one to compromise?
Who's gonna' be the first one to set it all on fire?

[Louis]
Who's gonna' be the last one to drive away?
Forgetting every single promise we ever made

[All]
The spaces between us keep getting deeper
It's harder to reach ya'
Even though I've tried
Spaces between us, hold all our secrets
Leaving us speechless and I don't know why

[Liam]
Who's gonna' be the first to say goodbye?

[Zayn]
We keep taking turns, will we ever learn?
When will we learn?

[All]
The spaces between us keep getting deeper
It's harder to reach ya'
Even though I've tried
Spaces between us, hold all our secrets
Leaving us speechless and I don't know why

[Harry]
Who's gonna' be the first to say goodbye?
Who's gonna' be the first to say goodbye?

[Niall]
The spaces between us
The spaces between us
The spaces between us
The spaces between us
