10 Most Romantic Lyrics on One Direction's New Album 'Made in the A.M.'

Where do broken hearts go? Find some solace in the band's sweetest lyrics off 'Made in the A.M.'

One Direction's final album (calm down, just for right now), Made in the A.M., dropped today (Nov. 13).

Made in the A.M. sticks to what the now-foursome do best: Talking girls and being charming while harmonizing. The guys discuss everything from pining for a former flame to midnight rendezvous to a whole tune about some lucky gal named Olivia. Spoiler alert: While not included on this list of romance, the guys also spend a not insignificant amount of this album discussing how they're sort of down for whatever. (Looking at you, "Temporary Fix.")

One Direction Points the Way Forward on Swan Song (For Now) ‘Made in the A.M.’: Album Review

Here, on the first of what will be many, many listens, we rounded up 10 of the most romantic lyrics on this, the final installment of this era of 1D.

10. "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" ("Walking in the Wind")
Heed these words during the upcoming trial separation ("hiatus," whatever).

9. “Mini bars, expensive cars, hotel rooms, and new tattoos/ The good champagne, and private planes, but they don't mean anything/ Cause' the truth is out, I realize that without you here life is just a lie" ("History")
Being a rock star is hard.

8. "If you like midnight driving with the windows down/ And if you like going places we can’t even pronounce/ If you like to do whatever you've been dreaming about/ Baby, you’re perfect" ("Perfect")
Just be down for whatever! An unintentional ode to Cool Girls

7."All I know at the end of the day/ Is you love who you love, there ain't no other way/ If there's something I've learnt from a million mistakes/ You're the one that I want at the end of the day" ("End of the Day")
Not a Les Miserables homage, surprisingly. Would also work very well on an apology card. 

6. "What a feeling to be right here beside you now/ Holding you in my arms" ("What A Feeling")
Straightforward and sweet. 

5. "I come alive when I hear your voice/ It's a beautiful sound, it's a beautiful noise" ("Hey Angel")
Laying it on a little thick, but we'll allow it.

4. "Lips so good I forget my name/ I swear I could give you everything" ("Never Enough")
Okay, so, this tune is all about how no matter how much they love you, it would never be as much as you deserve. Which is very flattering, frankly.

3. "If I could fly, I'd be coming right back home to you/ I think I might give up everything, just ask me to/ Pay attention, I hope that you listen cause I let my guard down/ Right now I'm completely defenseless/ For your eyes only, I show you my heart/ For when you're lonely and forget who you are/ I'm missing half of me when we're apart/ Now you know me, for your eyes only" ("If I Could Fly")
Even if One Direction could literally fly, they would still just stick around home with you. Boys are dumb.

2. "When you go and I'm alone/ You live in my imagination/ The summertime and butterflies/ All belong to your creation/ I love you, it's all I do/ I love you I live for you, I long for you, Olivia" ("Olivia")
If your name isn't Olivia: Who the hell is Olivia?
If your name is Olivia: !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1. LITERALLY ANY LYRIC from "I Want To Write You a Song," starting with the title.
Exhibit A:
I want to lend you my coat
One that's as soft as your cheek
So when the world is cold
You'll have a hidin' place you can go

Exhibit B:
I want to build you a boat
One that's as strong as you are free
So any time you think that your heart is gonna sink
You know it won't
I want to build you a boat 

Exhibit C:
I want to write you a song
One to make your heart remember me
So any time I'm gone
You can listen to my voice and sing along
I want to write you a song 

Any questions?
