Something Great is the twelfth song from One Direction's third studio album, Midnight Memories.

Lyrically, the song depicts a man yearning for someone and wanting to create an idyllic life with them.

The song has yet not been performed on any of One Direction's tours.

Background

"Something Great" is co-written by band member, Harry Styles and, like "Strong" and "Happily", is rumoured to be about his relationship with Louis Tomlinson

Styles told in an interview that the song is on his personal experiences. 

Lyrics


[Liam]
One day you'll come into my world and say it all,
You say we'll be together even when you're lost

[Zayn]
One day you’ll say these words I’ve thought but never said
You’ll say we’re better off together in our bed

[Harry]
I want you here with me
Like how I pictured it
So I don’t have to keep imagining
Come on jump out at me
Come on bring everything
Is it too much to ask for something great

[Niall]
The script was written and I could not change a thing
I want to rip it all to shreds and start again

[Harry]
One day I’ll come into your world and get it right
I’ll say we’re better off together here tonight

I want you here with me
Like how I pictured it
So I don’t have to keep imagining
Come on jump out at me
Come on bring everything
Is it too much to ask for something great

[Zayn]
I want you here with me
Like how I pictured it
So I don’t have to keep imagining

[Zayn and Harry]
Come on jump out at me
Come on bring everything
Is it too much to ask for something great

I want you here with me
Like how I pictured it
Is it too much to ask for something great

[Louis]
You’re all I want
So much it's hurting
You’re all I want
So much it's hurting
