Happily is a song by One Direction from their album, Midnight Memories. It is the eighth track of the album. It was co-written by band member Harry Styles.

The song was performed on the Where We Are Tour and was performed on the Australian leg of the On The Road Again Tour before being replaced by "Stockholm Syndrome" during the Asian leg.

Background

It was written by Savan KotechaCarl Falk and Harry Styles; while the production was handled by Falk.[1]

Harry Styles co-wrote the song and, like "Strong", it is widely believed to be about his relationship with band-mate Louis Tomlinson. Many also believe the track "Fireproof" may be a continuation of "Happily", due to the lyrics "we're on fire now" (from Happily) and "maybe we're fireproof" (from Fireproof).

The song was announced as the eighth song on the track list of the album. An acoustic version of the song which was created by Country Club Martini Crew was released on SoundCloud on 10 January 2014.

Lyrics

 

[Harry]
You don’t understand, you don’t understand
What you do to me when you hold his hand
We were meant to be but a twist of fate
Made it so you had to walk away

[Niall]
Cos we’re on fire, we're all on fire
We’re on fire now

[Zayn]
Yeah we’re on fire, we are on fire
We’re on fire now

[All]
I don’t care what people say when we’re together
You know I want to be the one who holds you when you sleep
I just want it to be you and I forever
I know you wanna leave
So come on baby be with me so happily

[Liam]
It's 4am and I know that you’re with him
I wonder if he knows that I’ve touched your skin

[Louis]
And if he feels my traces in your hair
I’m sorry lord but I don’t really care

[Niall]
Cos we’re on fire, we're all on fire
We’re on fire now

[Zayn]
Yeah we’re on fire, we are on fire
We’re on fire now


[All]
I don’t care what people say when we’re together
You know I want to be the one
Who holds you when you sleep
I just want it to be you and I forever
I know you wanna leave
So come on baby be with me so happily
So happily
1,2,3,4

Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh we’re on fire now
Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh we’re on fire now
Oh oh oh oh oh, oh oh oh oh we’re on fire now

I don’t care what people say when we’re together
You know I want to be the one
Who holds you when you sleep
I just want it to be you and I forever
I know you wanna leave
So come on baby be with me so happily

I don’t care what people say when we’re together
You know I want to be the one
Who holds you when you sleep
I just want it to be you and I forever
I know you wanna leave
So come on baby be with me so happily
