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...

    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! :)

    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.

    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 this song is about louis. i know im probably going to get a lot of hate for saying this but its my opinion and you may have a different one, im not stopping you. ik in the song it says "brown skinned" and im still wondering what its about but besides that its definitely ab louis (in my opinion). there is a book called louis the fish, it was published in 1980 so the book did come first. from what ive heard, the character in the book is exactly like harry in the mv, in his pjs and stuff. idk too much ab it tho. but in the beginning they're both down the road of suicide and they save each other. at the end the fish and harry go different ways but he sees the fish again...he saw louis when louis sang on x factor for his mom. i think its ab louis for sure. thanks for listening to my ted talk lol xxx

    i think this song has a very deep meaning.
    i thought it was about louis at first, but after watching some videos i think its about zayn. just hear me out. i am a Larry though, but i think it can be about both zayn ( as friends ) and/or louis.

    in the beginning of the mv it shows that harry was going thru a very hard time in his life (suicide). it breaks my heart for him tho :(. anyways, the fish (Louis or zayn) saved each other. over time they became close, but finally in the end, it was time to let go. they had both found happiness and they were glad to see each other go and achieve great things.
    at the end of the mv tho, where the fish and harry go their own ways, he sees the fish again in the water, so I think that means he saw either Louis or zayn after the band breakup. idk if this really made sense but there's signs that it could be about Louis or zayn, like for zayn the map being green and yellow, the fish leaving him first, "brown skin and lemon over ice", etc. for Louis, a book called "Louis the fish" where the boy had a role exactly like harry, how the fish and harry wanted to be together but they couldn't, etc.
    these aren't my thoughts and I definitely did NOT notice these things, I read a bunch of comments on YouTube and watched some videos and this is how it all made sense to me. but honeslty speaking I really don't know who its about since there's sm proof for the both of them.

    This song and the mv for this have the same meaning. It is about a person he met. At first he thinks he can givenup his life for her, he can love her till his dying days but after sometime he realizes that they are not meant fro eachother. They cannot be with eachother and he needs to move on.

    The mv signifies that same thing. He meets a fush. At first he thinks that the fish is his everything. He wouldnt need anything if he can live with that fish but as time passes the fish starts growing bigger and bigger each day. He starts realizing that he cannot fulfill what the fish is beeding because the fish needs to be set free. At last, he leaves the fish at the ocean where other fishes are living. The fish finds its kind and he goes to find his.

    Its written about the early stage of infactuation where all of us feel like we can give up everything for a person but later realize we are not meant for wachother and move on.

    Sorry for my poor english. It is not my first language.

    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.

    "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.
