From The Dining Table Lyrics

Woke up alone in this hotel room
Played with myself, where were you?
Fell back to sleep, I got drunk by noon
I've never felt less cool

We haven't spoke since you went away
Comfortable silence is so overrated
Why won't you ever be the...

    I think this is about having a one night stand to get over your ex 'Woke up the girl who looks just like you. I almost said your name'. I think the ex isn't contacting at all and the narrator (not necessarily Harry) is waiting for a call or text. Hence, 'Even my phone misses your calls, by the way'. Overall, this song is beautiful whatever the meaning.

    I think Harry is actually quite a private guy and this is more of a metaphor about how so much has changed in his life. All that was once fimiliar is now so different yet the same in some ways, that instead of it being a change it’s a bit more like something is missing or perhaps that the change is hard to get used to. This could be in reference to him leaving the band, or a relationship, or maybe even he isn’t exactly sure what it is that’s making him feel like that, but I feel like he’s noticed somethings gone missing but he doesn’t know what

    This is definatley about Louis. The first meal Louis ever cooked always seems very important. He said it was the romantic thing he ever did. Probably not a coincidence that Harry happed to post a photo of it. I think they may have shared a very important moment there in the kitchen. Also the fact that Louis and Harry don't talk often makes sense.

    It's about dining tables
    (Hence the title)
    I like dining tables so I feel like this song was probably written with me in mind (not to brag, just a theory)

    I think its a beautiful song it just sounds sad like u can hear the hurt in his voice you know i just cant figure out what its about somewhere in the back of my head i belive in larry just a little bit though like some of it makes sense like when they were in the band at the beginging yea maybe they were dating but now that louis has a kid i dont think so and pepole saying freddie was fake was just hurtfull like he had to prove he had a kid i dont know i love them both very much love u hazza and lou <3

    es que se termina una relacion y le duele siente que fue es facil que se olviden de el y sigue esperando es respuesta que le diga lo importante que es y que no lo quiere perder, intenta convencerse que la historia no acab ahi que an algun punto llegara esa llamda y que el le diga que tambien lo extraño pero aun no llega...
