Niall Horan - So Long Lyrics

Looking back through changes where we started from
Don't know about you but I knew it was wrong
You know I kept a place for you in my mind
Now I know you did the same 'cause you're just the kind

So if we knew all along
Why did it take so long?
I've known since we were young
So why did it take so long?
You know you make me feel loved
Make me feel like I'm home
So if we knew all along
Why did it take so long?

Moving on
You and I started looking back
Now we've got to make up for all the wasted time
You know I'd never let you just walk on by
From the day that I met you I knew you'd be mine, yeah

So if we knew all along
Why did it take so long?
You've known since we were young
So why did it take so long?
You know you make me feel loved
Make me feel like I'm home
So if we knew all along
Why did it take so long?

Just started, just started
Having trouble believing it's true
Just started, just started
Now we are nothing but through

So if we knew all along
Why did it take so long?
We've known since we were young
So why did it take so long?
You know you make me feel loved
Make me feel like I'm home
So if we knew all along
Why did it take so long?

    Adriana Avila

    This is my favorite performance ever of this song. I don't even though if other versions exist, but that first note of music playing.... gosh I'm done for. It melts my heart and soul. This sounds and feels incredible. All those amazing talented beautiful people coming together to create this sound project. oof! Congrats and hats off to all of them.

  7. Kriszti Papp

    I love it.

    This song has found a cozy place to reside in my mind for these past few days. I ain't even mad at it. ❤ This might be my favorite songs I've heard him perform. That orchestra, 👏

  11. charles s. sturdivant

  13. Joude

    This is powerful

  14. Conniption 86

    Lyrics anyone?!

  15. Natalie Watson

    Wow wow wow 😍

  16. Sorry for my english

    OMG! He plays piano too? I didn't even know that! His talent was so hidden in One Direction! And his voice sounds sooo good out of pop genre music! It's crazy! I'm so glad 1D splited! I'm sorry.. It was phenomenal back then, but it was about time for each one of them (at least the majority of them 😅) to shine individually, even if they were scared at first. I bet Niall is beyond happy now.

  17. Tanvi Chipte

    Why isnt anybody talking about the incredible band?!😍😍

  18. Samantha

    Niall ❤️

  19. Nindya Pradiana

    I can listening to this song all the time🥰

  20. Michelle Fraser

    Stop living the life you want in your music. Go live it for real! And stop wasting time. I'm so sad for you and Zayn. This industry is brutal, but your life is your own. This is why I love Sam Smith. He decided if you're gonna support me this is who I am love me as I am. Please be who you really are. And that requires courage. He loves you too. He sounds just as sickening as you in his songs. The wasted time, still waiting. Stop waiting!

    Adriana Avila

    Michelle Fraser, 😭😫😩🥺. Isn’t that what music is about though? Getting I tuyo ur feelings, all of them? I totally get your message but there’s lots f heartache you can’t control. I love sad songs. Humanizes folks I think. But yes, I agree with your comment and will do my best. Thank you. and Happy almost New year!

    Michelle Fraser

    @Adriana Avila it's sickening because the songs speak to our humanity. I think those boys like not under contract with Simon they still have a non-disclosure agreements that they signed to protect the brand so they can't come out of that closet. That's where my head is going because there's no reason preventing them from publicly coming out yet none of them have. Not even Harry whom was the most obviously gay one from day one. I started suspected the others later on, Niall, Zayn, and Louis. I just really hurt for Zayn and Niall. There's a song Zayn sang that spoke about watching you take off your makeup. That was Niall he was talking about. He wore the most makeup in the group because of all his freckles which I love and thought were so adorable. But he was the one that wore the most makeup. Also Zayn sang another song about he loves white t-shirt? Or something about his love for white t-shirt, but anyway Niall was the only person that wore the most white t-shirt out of all of them. He always had on something with white most of the time. Even one of Zayn video shows part of Niall head in it. All you saw was his blonde hair. They both sing about each other. Sitting here waiting for someone, you smilled back at me and your face lit up the 🌞. Now I'm waiting here for someone. And oh love isn't it fucked up we're not in love. You know the song. It screams Zayn. And I feel some damn bad for them because they should be able to, or allowed to be with each other and love each other. It's been 9 years. I want them to have piece, but I don't think that they can. But if I know nothing else I do know that both Niall and Zayn are rebellious and it's just a matter of time before one of them say [email protected] it and just out themselves. That's why the showed us all those emotions they did while the band was together. That's why they touched each other all the time. That's why the developed their own language to communicate to each other, and always photographed together. There was even speculations that they got married in Vegas when they had a concert in America years ago. I'll check and find out if there's any record of a marriage licenses for them. I never checked.

    Michelle Fraser

    @Adriana Avila music is about your life experiences and emotions because of those life experiences. But we can avoid a lot of pain and hurt if we can take our heads out of our asses and just same sometimes I'm sorry! I was wrong about what I did, I still love you and I want what we had back. I miss you. We can start singing I'm finally free! Because we atoned for our wrong doing, or mistakes. I just think we can avoid a lot of grief if we can learn some humidity.

  21. Adriana Avila

    Love this song so much better than “Put Your Love On Me” 😞 😢 😭 gorgeous arrangement. Loved his debut ‘Flicker’ album. Perfect for fall days, winter days just ugh. Fainting lol

    Nindya Pradiana

    AGREE, but PALLOM is a great song too and more ballad

  22. Marianaa Rodríguez

    Adriana Avila

  23. nolo moussy

  24. Michelle Fraser

    I'm glad both of you finally got to sort so shit out. Love each other and don't let anyone or anything get between you two again.

  25. Valentina Sánchez P

    I will always come back to this song... Even though, all of his songs are awesome ❤❤🤭

  26. Ezhar Al Rafisqy

  42. lavernec f

    This is a GREAT song. I only recently know about this song. This needs some serious promotion. A lot of good artists out there have great songs that never got good promotion. This is a perfect example. This is such a great song....

  43. Maureen Lock

    I love that song he puts so much heart in to it well done niall

  44. Tuva


  45. John Roth

    I really hope 'So Long' gets picked up as a Motion Picture theme song. #DateMovieThemeSong

  46. leeswhimsy

    I love the look on his band's faces --- they all know how great this sounds!!

  47. John Roth

    'So Long' performed with full orchestration clearly demonstrates the level of musicianship Niall Horan has achieved as a recording artist. It takes considerable expertise to comminicate to writers the sound and feeling that a songwriter wants to achieve with each instrument in an orchestra. Then the editing process for a song being scored for a music video or for use in a movie separates the pros from the inexperienced. Nialler has so quickly risen to international fame through his music artistry and LIVE performances over the past eight years, it is easy for fans to lose sight of the long hours and hard work Niall has invested, coupled with his natural born talents to become a legend in his mid-20's. With his entire career ahead of him, Niall has only just begun.

  48. Unknown.

    Best live song 😍😍

  56. Lauriane Fargues

    I'm so fucking proud of him. His voice has always had something special , but now he can do whatever he wants with it, and this just sounds SO SO SO SO good. He deserves everything that is happening to him and even more. He's a real musician, a true artist.

  57. jaspreet kaur
