Golden Lyrics

Golden, golden, golden
As I open my eyes
Hold it, focus, hoping
Take me back to the light
I know you were way too bright for me
I'm hopeless, broken
So you wait for me in the sky
Browns my skin just right
You're so golden
You're so...

    I honestly think this is one of the saddest songs in his new album. As a larrie, I think this is about Louis but honestly could be about anyone. However, I think this song is about wanting to come out/express your sexuality and yourself to the world but your significant other being scared.

    The main part for me that proves this is the lines
    "I know that you're scared
    Because I'm so open"

    Harry is becoming so open about himself and finally expressing who he really is, but the person he wants to be with is too scared. (Louis)

    Harry talks about his significant other being so golden as in they're the light and the person that makes him happy.

    What makes this song so sad (for me anyway) is that harry talks about not wanting to be alone. He needs this person and wants to be with them as he is afraid of being alone. Loving this person is the antidote and will fix everything wrong in his life.

    Being told you cannot be with someone you love is what this song refers to which is SO upsetting especially for anyone who this has ever happened to. You can relate to how harry would feel not being able to be with someone who makes him feel so much joy.

    This can obviously be interpreted anyway it doesn't necessarily have to be about harry and Louis, but from the information, we know about harry's past relationships it seems that it's about harry and Louis being scared to open up and be with him.

    Thank you for listening to my ted talk #larry2020 hehe

    Here is my opinion:
    Golden is about larry and how he is open(his sexuality) but louis is to scared to come out. Now if you dont know harry has unreleased lyrics. In those lyrics it says“golden, Im hoping,he is broken and im hoping someday you’ll open and I know that your scared because im so open“ As i just said he says “Im hoping someday you’ll open“ Maybe meaning he hopes lou comes out so they dont have to hide the relationship... Im not so sure but then again golden could be about something else. Just my opinion. No hate. Tpwk

    i think this song is about harry in his frat boy era. “he’s broken” the frat boy era for harry was when he was in his most broken state. i think he is referring to his old self.

    all I have to say is not every song has to be about larry. I don't think it's good to dive into people's personal lives especially things like shipping 2 real living people. If I were either of them It would make me very uncomfortable and also it's just plain rude, and it definitely isn't treating people with kindness. Finally, I know it is up to your opinion about what this song's meaning is but remember that songs don't always have to have a romantic meaning with romantic undertones

    Personally I think this is about Louis. As many others have talked about, there are unreleased lyrics about how Harry is open and someone (he uses the word your) isn’t comfortable with it. I love the video so much, it’s so beautiful and happy. I wish there was more Larry in it, but honestly, it’s a golden is a masterpiece and so is Harry styles.

    i personally think it possibly could be about louis and how he's scared to come out but then again there could be other reasons so I'm trying to not assume so if it were about louis i think he's scared of what people will think of him if he comes out. We already know harry is outta the closet. I think louis thinks people won't respect him if he does. Me personally I will as I should but people shouldn't be sitting around shipping harry with louis 24/7. This is one reason why I hate blue greeners they sit around shipping them all day like that would be one of the reasons they wont come out. Like please respect their privacy harry has stated that it makes him feel uncomfortable when yall do that. Make sure to TPWK byeee

    This song has got nothing to do with louis because he never explains what his songs and the lyrics mean so he has let the fans write their own interpretations.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    It's not about Louis because Harry Doesn't explain the real meanings behind his songs because he lets the fans figure out the meanings theirselves

    Yep. Truer words have never been spoken/written:


    Here is my opinion:
    Golden is about larry and how Harry is open (his sexuality) but louis is to scared to be with Harry and open up. Now if you dont know harry has unreleased lyrics. In those lyrics it says “golden, Im hoping,he is broken and im hoping someday you’ll open and I know that your scared because im so open“ As i just said he says “Im hoping someday you’ll open“ Maybe meaning he hopes lou comes out so they dont have to hide the relationship...

    “ Golden “ reminds me of George Harrison’s “ My Sweet Lord.”
    Nothing to do with his boyhood pal Luis.
    George Harrison sang about wanting to be with God in heaven...but it takes so long . And Harry Styles “ doesn’t want to be alone”. when his time comes.
    #2. Malibu is my childhood home. CA beach life is always GOLDEN always remembered as we lived in the Southern CA golden sunlight.

    I personally think the song is about Louis and that he’s to scared to open up about his sexuality. And that Harry has already opened up about it but like I said, Louis haven’t and that means they can’t be together.

    It’s about Louis. #larry2020 harry says how he’s so open (about his sexuality) and that scares Louis
