Songfacts®:

  • This song finds the guys singing about the moment when they let the girl they love get away:

    Now I'm searching every lonely place
    Every corner calling out your name
    Trying to find you but I just don't know
    Where do broken hearts go?


    The 1D quintet will go to extraordinary lengths to find their lost loves again.
