Girl Crush Lyrics

I got a girl crush
Hate to admit it but
I got a heart rush
It ain't slowing down
I got it real bad
Want everything she has
That smile and that midnight laugh
She's giving you now

I want to taste her lips
Yeah, 'cause they taste like...

    I think this is about Louis, otherwise the lyrics ‘taste her lips, cause they taste like you’ wouldn’t make sense, unless he liked a girl who was in a relationship with another woman, which was never the case. It’s about his feelings for Louis, that have been hurt over Louis supposed relationship with a girl (probably Eleanor). He imagines all sorts going on and tortures himself over what they could be getting up to.

    I think this song is about Harry wanting to be with Louis tomlinson. This girl that Harry is describing, he is saying he wants to ‘taste her lips because they taste like you’ almost implying that this girl has a partner who Harry wants to be with. The crush is not on a girl but is a girl crush as it is towards a boy. Basically saying he wants everything she has because everything she has is what someone else (Louis) wants.

    So if you don’t know girl crush is originally by little big town and the lead singer is a woman who is presumably straight. She has never said to have any interest in other women. So at first people were confused with the song title, but, if you keep listening this song is about wanting to be someone so you can have to person they’re with. So in this case Harry would want to be with the man the girl is with. Go example “I want to taste her lips, ya cause they taste like you” “I want everything she has” “maybe then you’ll want me just as much” These are, in this case, all about wanting to be her so you can have him. So I’m conclusion the song is about wanting to be with a man, not a woman.

    This song was originally written from the perspective of a girl. Her love is in another relationship, and she longs to be everything this girl is, just to be the one this man desires. Harry covering this song so heart-wrenchingly a multitude of times— at his concerts, his highly public BBC show, and releasing a studio version on Spotify— shows that this song has a personal level of significance to him. Harry is singing about a boy he wants. “I want to taste her lips / Yeah ‘cause they taste like you”, says everything we need to know about who this song is for. While there had been speculation that Harry sang this song about Louis Tomlinson, he actually sang this song about Zayn Malik. Harry and Louis have already made it clear that fan speculation about romance between them had damaged their friendship. I’m contrast, Zayn abruptly stopped posting pictures with Gigi Hadid shortly after Harry covered this, showing that he may have known the real meaning of this song as well. Harry Styles has made statements that prove he is not straight, and the surprisingly beautiful truth of this song only goes to show how invested he has been in his desire for a relationship with Zayn Malik once again.

    I think he is singing from the point of view of a girl. He has a girl crush because it is from the POV of a girl who wants to be like the other girl because she wants to be with the boy. “I want her long blonde hair I want her magic touch yeah cause maybe then you’d want me just as much.” He wants to be the girl in the song because he wants someone else (most likely the girl’s partner) to like him. He could be singing as himself but it’s probably the point of view of a girl because that would make it a girl crush.

    I think this is about Louis but the girl is Brianna and not Eleanor. The song came out in 2017 and would have been written 2015-2016ish. Louis was not with Eleanor around that time but had a baby with Brianna so the line of long blonde hair makes way more sense with the female being Brianna.

    I think Harry is genderqueer and that this song has a double meaning for him. It’s about his relationship with Louis and how he longs for a girls body sometimes. He’s literally singing about wanting to be a girl. And I think that with all his other trans coding this idea that he’s jealous of a woman’s body is very possible.

    It' ObViOuSlY about Louis. In the lyrics Harry said he wants to be that girl (Eleanor) just bc he is in love with her boyfriend (Louis).
    This song is evrything but a straight love song.

    I think it's not about the girl he's singing about. I think it's about the person that hides behind "you". Everytime he sings "she", "her" etc. it's about the girl that the real adressee (probably Louis Tomlinson) is in a relationship with (Eleanor), not exactly about that girl.

    this song is definitely about Zayn Malik.Cause the lyrics says 'i want her long blonde hair'..well...we all know that Zayn's Gf,HIS BABY MAMA,supermodel Gigi Hadid IS a BLONDE..I can see some delusional larries here..they are saying Louis's ex gf Eleanor went through a "Blonde phase" hahahaha..ridiculas as always.and if you notice..Zayn stopped posing pictures of Gigi..or anything thats related with her,right after Harry sang Girl Crush for the first time...and Zayn saying.."I NEVER REALLY TALKED TO hARRY"....Which is defo BULLSHIT..their behavior is so damn suspicious!So defo..this song is about Zayn Malik

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    I think this is about Harry wanting to be with Louis Tomlinson because he’s saying he wants to be that girl so that he can be with him and that he’ll then want him just as much.

    I know that alot of people think this is about Louis or him coming out. Mabey he just likes the song I mean it's a pretty good song so Mabey there's no meaning behind it.

    This song is most likely about Louis Tomlinson. This is true because Eleanor(Louis's wife) went through a blonde phase so the lyric''I want her long blonde hair'' would be referring to her. Harry is also talking about how he wants to drown himself in her perfume which would then make Louis want him. There fore THIS IS ABOUT LOUIS.

    I think he chose this song over everyone else because it is very similar to the "relationship" he has / had with Louis Tomlinson, he wants to be with him, but he can't. And he just wants to be loved by him and no one else.

    i believe it’s about how he has a “crush” on someone and is jealous that he can’t be with them. so when he says “i want to taste her lips, yeah ‘cause they taste like you” he wants to be her so badly and be with his “crush”.
