Don't Let Me Go Lyrics

Now you're standing there right in front of me
I hold on, it's getting harder to breathe
All of a sudden, these lights are blinding me
I never noticed how bright they would be

I saw in the corner, there was a photograph
No doubt in my...

    In this song, some believe Harry is trying to tell the listener how lonely he feels even though he has thousands of people around him.

    Fame is not like what he and his friends were expecting. Their private lives are being completely exposed. He’s never free from the people’s eyes. Fame doesn’t let him be with who he loves (whom I recall is rumored to be Louis Tomlinson, his band member).

    The person, whom he loves, is still around him, but he can’t reach out for them whenever he wants to because they are not allowed to do it / is scared they will end up facing public shaming or disapproval. He speculates that maybe this life of fame would be better if he did not love anyone, since the problem of having to be away from [Louis] would not be a struggle if there was no love between them to begin with.

    Harry says that he is tired of pretending, to look but not having the right to touch. However, he longs for the time that they were together happily and will always be there for [Louis] when the person needs him.

    And now that their lives are already in front of the eyes of the world, the only thing that he is looking for is [Louis] to not leave him, because the person who he loves would not have to a struggle if they did leave him.

    Now this is what GENIUS says its about, so please dont attack me. I believe its about this as well, so Im posting it.

    Anyways, TPWK
