Adore You Lyrics

Walk in your rainbow paradise
Strawberry lipstick state of mind
I get so lost inside your eyes
Would you believe it?

You don't have to say you love me
You don't have to say nothing
You don't have to say you're mine

I'd walk...

    I think this song is about how Harry wants to love Louis but management would not let the boys love eachother so Harry is saying to Louis to just let him love him. I do not know if i'm right but that is my thoughts

    I think the fish represents Louis,, hear me out. When they met, they were really close and loved each other romantically. But the management separated them (like how the fish lives in water and harry lives on land so they may never be together.But in the beginning, harry gets to swim with the fish in the ocean.) Then after a while, the management got tired of them being together (the glass breaks and the fish almost dies) so then harry is forced to let go of louis and be forced to date girls.

    More related to the music video than the actual lyrics. However, in the music video at the beginning, Harry goes into the sea with rocks in his pockets, so he was trying to drown himself. The fish was also trying to commit suicide by jumping out of the water. Harry saved the fish and the fish saved Harry. The fine line album cover is seen through a fish eye lens, which reflects how we have saved Harry and made him into the amazing person he is today, and similarly he has saved us through his music.

    Not my idea but I've seen many people interpret it this way. So sad to think of it this way but at the same time it's extremely heartwarming and shows the power of our fandom! :)

    This song is about love, in all forms. Some of the imagery (including a man loving a fish) shows how love matters and is legitimate no matter what. Personally, I see this song as a story about queer forbidden love. The line “walk in your rainbow paradise” particularly lends itself to this idea, in my opinion.

    Teeny-Bopper fantasy crush: Adore You' Lyrics

    Walk in your rainbow paradise
    Strawberry lipstick state of mind
    I get so lost inside your eyes
    Would you believe it?
    You don’t have to say love me
    You don’t have to say nothing
    You don’t have to say you’re mine

    Grown up intense, True Love : I’d walk through fire for you .
    ( Just being adored might get to be bit boring , but if you want the Teeny-Bopper thing ... I can do that ).

    "Walked in your rainbow paradise" Harry met this person who was bright and interesting and colorful and maybe a bit gay cos rainbows. Harry isn't making them commit or say that they love him, maybe because he doesn't want to scare them off, but he just wants them to know how he feels about them and describes the bliss and joy of being with them.

    The music video tells a story of acceptance and embracing things that are different like people that smile or boys that like fish. It shows Harry being saved by meeting someone/thing from a different walk of life (or should I say, 'swim of life'? hahahahaha) that is struggling as much as he is and they save each other. And, finally, how sometimes you have to let things go to both move forward with your lives. Ofc his way of expressing this is more dramatic and... aquatic. I blame the mushrooms.

    The music video is a pretty obviously about being in the closet and seeing other gay people being persecuted but in coming out finding that most people will be behind you and I think the song is similar. The line "walked a fire for you" is talking about how gay people often face struggles just to be able to date and because of that it can hurt even more when you've gone through so much to make a relationship happen and it doesn't work out.
