Walking in the Wind is a bonus track featured on the deluxe version of Made in the A.M. It was globally released on November 13, 2015.

Lyrically, it describes moving on from someone and missing them, but knowing they will meet again one day. It is likely to be about Zayn Malik, who left the band in March 2015.

Background

The song was written by Harry Styles, Julian Bunetta, John Ryan and Jamie Scott.

Harry has stated he was inspired by Paul Simon's music, specifically Graceland, while writing and recording this song. He said "The way in which the verse is so conversational and informal, and it's not like melody melody melody - it's like spoken word, and kind of drifts and peaks and troughs. I love [Graceland], and when I listen to it I love hearing the influence from that in this song."[1]

Julian Bunetta talked to Rolling Stone about the track, stating ""That title was born in Japan. Just the title of it and the idea of it. Everyone's different experiences of what they're going through, whether it's this or that, I'd like to think that these songs can apply to more than just [one instance]."[2] He also revealed on Twitter that the lyric "You'll find me in the region of the summer stars" came from a poem his grandmother wrote.[3]

Lyrics

 
[Harry]
A week ago you said to me
"Do you believe I'll never be too far"
If you're lost, just look for me
You'll find me in the region of the summer stars
The fact that we can sit right here and say goodbye
Means we've already won
The necessity for apologies between you and me
Baby, there is none

[Niall]
We had some good times, didn't we?
We had some good tricks up our sleeve
Goodbyes are bittersweet
But it's not the end
I'll see your face again

[All]
You will find me
Yeah you will find me
In places that we've never been
For reasons we don't understand
Walking in the wind
Walking in the wind

[Louis]
Yesterday I went out to celebrate the birthday of a friend
But as we raised our glasses up to make a toast
I realized you were missing

[Liam]
We had some good times, didn't we?
We wore our hearts out on our sleeve
Goodbyes are bittersweet
But it's not the end
I'll see your face again

[All]
You will find me
Yeah you will find me
In places that we've never been
For reasons we don't understand
Walking in the wind
Walking in the wind

[Harry]
I know we'll be alright child
Just close your eyes and see
I'll be by your side
Any time you're needing me

[All]
You will find me
Yeah you will find me
In places that we've never been
For reasons we don't understand
Walking in the wind
Walking in the wind
Walking in the wind
