Fine line Lyrics

Put a price on emotion
I'm looking for something to buy
You've got my devotion
But man, I can hate you sometimes
I don't want to fight you
And I don't wanna sleep in the dirt
We'll get the drinks in
So I'll get to thinking of her
We'll be...

    this song is saying that there’s times where you’re going to be happy and times where you’re going to be sad, there’s always a fine line between them. he’s saying he’s always going to love this person but there’s also dark times. there’s a fine line with drinking and being happy but when he’s alone and by himself he’ll be thinking of her and that’s the sadness part. when he says you sunshine you temptress she’s the light and she’s tempted to her but when he says my wrists, i told he’s scared of showing feelings to them and he shys away. when he says “spreading you open is the only way of knowing you” he thinks that’s the only time where he gets to know her and where she’s able to show her feelings. at the end he reflects on how he/they will be alright and there’s always just a fine line.

    I think that « Fine Line » is a song about happy and sad moment in life, at the beginning the song sounds like a bit sad but at the end, the song sounds happier « We’ll be alright » its a ✨fine line✨

    I think that this is about a strong relationship that even after the break up they were still alright and they don’t have to be together all the time. That’s their fine line connection between them both.

    I actually think the first part of this song (before chorus: We'll be a fine line) it is about Simon Cowell

    [You’ve got my devotion]
    like Simon is somebody Harry looks up to

    [But man, I can hate you sometimes]
    but sometimes Harry can hate him because he split Harry and Louis

    [I don’t want to fight you
    And I don’t wanna sleep in the dirt]
    I think the rest of the first part speaks for itself

    And then I think the rest of this song is about Louis

    [A test of my patience]
    Harry doesn't know how long time he can handle in this situation with Louis (they cannot be together in a public)

    [There’s things that we’ll never know]

    [You sunshine, you temptress]
    I think we all know who is sunshine.

    [Crisp trepidation
    I’ll try to shake this soon]
    I think their situation isn't easy. And Harry just wanna coming out

    [Spreading you open
    Is the only way of knowing you]
    Harry shows us something which pointing to his sexuality and it's the only way how knowing Louis.

    [We'll be a fine line]
    It just pointing how harry feel

    [We'll be alright]
    He saying Louis they'll be alright

    It's just my opinion.

    A while back, when the album first came out, I thought of this as a sad song. But lyrics like 'we'll be alright' made me think it was both happy and sad. *It's a fine line.*

    i think this song is about life and how there is a fine line between happiness and sadness. as you can see, the beginning of the song is obviously sad and as the song progresses it gets happier and it says “we’ll be alright” which makes me feel during the darkness and light in life, we will end up ok.

    "Put a price on emotion looking for something to buy you got my devotion and man I can hate you sometimes"
    This could be Harry referencing Simon. Saying how he was young and wanted to be a star so he thought becoming one would make him happy. But he realizes he hates Simon sometimes due to management splitting up Louis and Harry.
    "I don't want to fight you and I don't want to sleep in the dirt"
    meaning he doesn't want to fight Simon and he doesn't want to be left in the "dirt". Saying if he fights against management he could lose his chance at becoming who he wants to be but he can't love, Louis.
    "We'll get the drinks in so I'll get to thinking of her"
    Going on from what I said before since Harry doesn't want to lose his chance of becoming a star/idol he becomes the "womanizer" of the group. So he will "drink" until he starts to think of women.
    "We'll be a fine line"
    Meaning Harry is fulfilling his dream but pushing away his loved one, Louis. So fine line relates to not awful not awesome, just in the middle. But this isn't what he really wants.
    "Test of my patience"
    Simon is playing with Harry's time and he is broken.
    "There are things that we'll never know"
    An explanation as to why Harry can't be with Louis.
    Therefore I think this song is about how Harry had to deal with pushing away loved ones to maintain his public figure. Which relates to the fine line because it's just a line of being in the middle.

    i believe it’s about being in a long term relationship and looking back through it all and recognizing that they will always be alright.
