Where do broken hearts go?

Harry Styles has just one thing to tell fans: Don't worry about him leaving One Direction anytime soon. Maybe.

"We have the album and the tour that we're working on right now," Styles told Ryan Seacrest Thursday (June 4) -- with just a hint of an awkward pause -- about his long-term plans. "I think when you have so many goals that you feel like you have yet to achieve, it's hard to kind of see past those. It's important to kind of focus on what's going on and don't kind of lose track. So we're all working hard towards the same thing right now, and I don't think we're thinking much past that."

So...Styles basically is repeating what he's often said when asked about the future of the band -- fans will at least get one more album before 1D ends.

"We're all very excited. The creative process -- it's very similar to be honest," Styles shared about life post-Zayn. "But it was cool how some of the things came out sounding because actually there was a lot of parts that kind of needs to get written with Zayn in mind and with all of us in mind. It's great, the new stuff sounds good so far I think? I hope."

Thank God.
