Clouds is the twelfth track on One Direction's fourth studio album, Four.[1]

The song had been added to the official tracklist on the On the Road Again Tour, and had been performed as an opening number for the tour.

Lyrically, the song is about a relationship that didn’t work out because one person wasn’t as serious about the relationship as the other.

Background

"Clouds" signals a new sound for the group, channeling a much harder rock sound than most One Direction tracks. It features Harry Styles performing lengthy vocal runs and lyrically describes a person recovering from a breakup by partying with friends and reveling in the success they have found both personally and professionally.

It may also be about the boys' relationship with people or media that doubted that they would succeed or reach the stardom that they did and stay as long as they did, “We’re looking down on the clouds.”

It is widely considered a fan favorite. The song was also performed live for Coca-Cola FM in early 2015.

Lyrics

[Harry]
I know you said that you don't like it complicated
That we should try to keep it simple
But love is never ever simple no

[Louis]
Someday you're gonna see the things that I see
You're gonna want the air that I breathe
You're gonna wish you never left me

[All ; led by Harry]
Here we go again
Another go round for all of my friends
Another non stop will it ever end
Here we go again
Another go round for all of my friends
Another non stop will it ever end

We're never coming back down
We're looking down on the clouds

[Liam]
I know you said that you don't like it complicated
But you were tired of all the changes
But love is always always changing woah

[Zayn]
Someday you're gonna see the things that I see
You're gonna want the air that I breathe
You're gonna wish you'd never left me

[All ; led by Harry]
Here we go again
Another go round for all of my friends
Another non stop will it ever end
Here we go again
Another go round for all of my friends
Another non stop will it ever end

We're never coming back down
We're looking down on the clouds

[Niall]
And we go and we go and we go and we don't stop

[Harry]
But we don't no we don't no we don't ever grow up

[Niall]
And we go and we go and we go and we don't stop

[Harry]
But we don't no we don't no we don't ever grow up

[All ; led by Harry]
Here we go again
Another go round for all of my friends
Another non stop will it ever end
Here we go again
Another go round for all of my friends
Another non stop will it ever end (Here we go again)

Here we go again
Another go round for all of my friends (Here we go again)
Another non stop will it ever end
Here we go again (Here we go again)
Another go round for all of my friends
Another non stop will it ever end (Here we go again)
