One Direction: Diana Meaning
The front pages are your pictures,
They make you look so small,
How could someone not miss you at all?
I never would mistreat ya,
Oh I’m not a criminal,
I speak a different language but I still hear your...

The song is not towards the eating disorder "Ana" or anorexia, which I can understand how people can think that because in the song it sounds like they're saying "Die Ana." The song is based for all girls (or boys) who have ever felt like Princess Diana in England who self-harmed and had depression. It is to speak out and tell their fans that they should never feel as though they aren't enough and that they are never alone.

The song was written for the fans who sit up at night thinking about suicide this was their was of asking them almost pleading them not to cos every fan that die they lose fart of them selves and something else takes its place that is why they have changed so much.

Sorry to the girl who said it was not about self harm, but it is. i have seen the videos, and everyone says it is. Diana is to any fans trying to kill or hurt themselves. In the song it says stuff like, 'let me save your life,' and stuff like i get the messages u sent. It tottaly is about self harm.

This is very long but PLEASE!! read this could help
This song is talking about a girl, if you really listen to the song carefully and not think everything is about you guys. i'm not hating on the fans but there are songs that are about girls they care for. just saying it's not about eating disorder,self harm,etc... but all those things are important. i can see why you guys thought so.
Here is my interpretation:
1)in all of the photo's they make her look small, and how can he not miss her at all.
2) he would never mistreat her in anyway,he's not a bad guy and he does things a little different, they live in separate worlds. but he still hears her call, as in get her messages.
3)let him be the one to put a spark in her eyes and fall in love again. he's know she's been lonely and the fact that she doesn't really know him, he knows she's been crying.
4) let him be the one to take her pain away and stop her from crying. let him show how much he loves her and she doesn't realize that he really misses her and she's the one that's really saving him.
5)it's only been a while (it's only been four months) since they've been getting to know each other and now that he's gone,(but you've fallen down so far) she fallen for him in that short time, he's surprise that she had fallen for him but he know that already because he fells the same way. (how could someone mislead you at all) how can he mislead you when he's busy all the time but at the same time trying to keep in contact. he misses her and she's always on his mind.
6)(i wanna reach out for you) he wants to talk to her but it's very hard to when everyone around hum is always ways watching every move he makes. (i wanna break these walls) he want to get to her but it's so hard he's afraid to out her in danger. (i speak a different langue, but i still hear your call) two different world but he still gets her calls.
7)let him be the one to make her happy and give him all his love(Diana let me be the one to light a fire in those eyes) she's been all alone by herself crying because of him. the fact that you doesn't know him makes her fell dumb. he know what she's going through all of this but he's doesn't know what to do. she's in a lot of pain and it kills him (you've been lonely, you don't even know me but i can feel you crying) let him be the to stop the pain and start loving her, he's saying that she doesn't realize that she's the one that would be saving him because of all the pain he's put her through. (Diana let me be the one to lift your hear and and save your life i don't think you realize baby you'll be saving mine).
8) he doesn't want her to give up on him, he needs her as much as she needs him (we all need something, this can't be over now.) he's wondering if he could hold on but at the same time he would never put her down but it's really hard.if he knew sooner how this would effect her.(if i could hold on, swear i'll never put you down)
then the course says it all.
so basically this song is saying even though she doesn't know him but she want to get to know him and it's really hard. but at the same time he's telling her that he know how she feels and that she's the one that would save him from his pain. he's really scared because he want to love her with all his hear but all he wanted was for her to love him for him and now that he's seen it it's breaking his hear so when he see's her he would never put her through the pain again and she's the one who saves him because she love him more than anything.
this is what i think of this song. i got to say most of you that are reading this aren't going to believe me but these boys write songs about the girls in their current life the ones that the re dating and the ones they've dated secretly and are dating secretly. sooner or later the two boys that are left single won't be single for long. moreover, don't be sending death note and writing nasty letters to their girlfriends. when you don't even know them, there is a reason why they are dating. not because of money and because he famous but because she really does care for him. she's putting her life at risk putting herself in the public life because she knew what she's getting herself into but also want to be able to support him. you guys as fans of the one direction boys shouldn't be putting a damper on their relationships because that girl she's with isn't "you" or "he could do so much better" but really your just upset because he's not yours himself. your not only hurting her but you'll be hurting him the most. who want to see nasty words about their girlfriend online? that would just make him upset and just couldn't believe those words. don't judge the girl because you don't know who she is. here's what to do put yourselves in her situation. i don't think you would like that. would you? don't start spreading rumors and don't be digging into someones past. the only person to judge you is yourselves. also he knows here and they are still trying to get to know each other. and every girl you see them with or taking a picture with don't assume that they are dating them and if they say so let it be.
they are going to get tired of it and just stop responding. if you want to know something ask them. wait until they say something. also love them for their music and if you want to get to know them that's going to be hard unless you meet them somewhere and not go all nuts treat them/him like he's someone you want to get to know for them and not what his status/ know for but for the person he is. don't pretend to be someone your not around him because of what he does. but generally talk to him as a human-bean he's a regular guy just with an abnormal life still. respect their space. we all go boy crazy when we see a handsome guy. then you start to plan what out what it would be to be with that person. everyone does it, if you say you don't then your lying. overall they just want someone they would love them for them see their flaws and love it, love them more than they can love you. no one can love someone equally someone always loves some more.
for me i want Niall and Harry to find someone that would love them for who they are as a person. do silly things together, got to the movies with out anyone knowing, midnight adventures, simple dates, play fights, travel together, being absolutely annoying to each other. etc... that would be good if the fans do be happy for them because their happy.
Niall looks like a trouble maker but really he's the sweetest person just don't make him upset. he would say the most ridiculous things, he's a tease, protective, kind heart, selfless, has playful side, funny, a gentlemen, not too serious. some what hard to read but there's something about him that you just love about him. you don't have to be afraid to say anything to him, even if you are he'll just try to get it out of you. when anything upsets him he'll swears like crazy. he's got a dirty mouth. talking to girls are not he's strong suit,he's never the one to be rude unless your being disrespectful. he doesn't like it when a girl pretends to be something she's not. he want to see the really her. doesn't like a lot of make-up on girls only make-up would be lip gloss or colored. but who would say no to that boy. overall you would never be bored with him.
Harry he'll go out of his way to see you happy, he may seem like he's not fun but he's a funny person, kind, funny, sweet, old school, selfless, a gentlemen. he seems like a ladies man but he doesn't get way girls like him. he's never the one to be rude unless your being disrespectful. he doesn't like it when a girl pretends to be something she's not. he want to see the really her. doesn't like a lot of make-up on girls only make-up would be lip gloss or colored. he wants to see her natural beauty.
with both guys they have similar things in common. don't believe everything you read in the magazines and where the source hears it from. these boys want to keep their dating life private and just love the music they make amazing voices and their music grow as they grow.
thanks for reading my long interpretation!!
:) <3 this is what i think and what i know about them.

I rlly believe this song is abt the fans. I know liam once denied it in an interview and said it was just a good song but seriously just listen to the lyrics. It cant be "just a good song" It has stories behind it and i think the story is about the fans
anonymous Jul 17th, 7:17pm report
i can tell you for a fact, they said in an interview it is not about cutting, or depression, or princess diana. those interpretations are wrong. look it up, the interview is on youtube
anonymous Jul 16th, 7:08pm report
It is about self harm, suicide ect. It means don't let anyone out you down. Because onedirection will kick they're backsides and they'll land in Turkey :0

Its open for interpretation. Louis said it was about the fans, not eating disorders although he could see how it can relate.
anonymous Jun 28th, 6:57pm report
This song is aimed towards fans who self harm or want to die. They used the name 'Diana' because of Princess Diana who suffered with severe depression. They are also saying, you, as in a Directioner, are what are keeping them alive, and if they found out one of there fans committed suicide, then they would be devastated and maybe blame themselves for not trying to help you.

It is based on princess Diana who had depression and self harmed. It is dedicated to the fans who self harm and are suicidal and get bullied and put down. It is a very powerful meaning. This song saved my life.
anonymous May 23rd, 5:31pm report
I think the name Diana is used as princess Diana suffered with depression. I think it is about the fans who are going through a difficult time. I know a lot of people say it's about suicidal and fans that self harm but notice how they sing it like "die Ana" Ana is a term used for anorexic people. So it could also be about fans with eating disorders
anonymous Apr 24th, 4:11pm report
This song was about all those fans who cut and self harm them selfs. The reason they picked the name Diana is cause of princess Diana and her past. Princess Diana suffered from depression, and self harmed her self. They also didn't want to pick a random name, because if that was your name u might think it was aimed towards you. Thanks for reading hope I helped

I believe it is about the girls who self harm and I am one of them. I cried hearing this song it is ment to make us who feel like no one cares they are here for us. One Direction is in aspiration and they will be here for us fans no matter what.
