one direction - live while we’re young (HQ video)
One Direction’s sex noises.
Zayn’s isolated vocal from the chorus of WMYB interwoven with Harry’s solo (x)
listen and read:
“Thank you.” Liam said. His voice pained, “For everything you have done for us.”
Niall nodded and stared into the audience, tears stinging the corners of his eyes, “For being here while we did what we love. Thank you for staying through the tough times and loving us with your heart.”
“We love you.” Harry continued, the spotlight hitting his face perfectly as he admired the thousands of fans before him, “You guys made our journey amazing and something that we’ll never forget.”
The boys all nodded, tears rolling slowly down their cheeks.
Zayn stepped forwards, losing his normally calm composure, “You’re all beautiful. You’re all amazing and you’re our fans.”
The crowd fell silent as Louis stepped into the front.
“It’s so hard to leave all of you… it’s hard to end this and leave the boys but we have so many beautiful memories. So many perfect reminders of how perfect our lives have been.”
The boys formed a group hug, crying into each other’s arms as they finally realised that it had been their last performance as One Direction.
They turned into the audience and kissed their finger tips, raising them to the audience and waving slowly, smiling through their tears.
They brought their microphones to their mouths and each inhaled sharply.
“Bye… We were One Direction.”
The stage became completely black and a hushed silence fell over the arena, the screen above the stage lighting up.
“I’m Harry Styles.”
As their X-Factor performance flashed on the screen the boys stood offstage, staring sadly at the screen before them.
The clips slowly faded to darkness again, the boys turned to each other, a silence falling over the room.
“So this is it?” Niall whispered his voice cracking.
Harry nodded, quickly wiping away a tear.
They hugged for what seemed like forever, unable to let each other go before Harry adjusted his curls and walked to the door, waving goodbye to his 4 best friends, his 4 brothers.
Niall followed, along with Zayn and finally Liam, leaving Louis to sit on a guitar amp. His fingers drummed on the side as he stared at the ground, his tears falling quickly.
“Forever young…” He quietly sang as his tears fell, “I wanna be… forever… young.”
