Harry Styles: She Meaning
No tags, suggest one.
Song Released: 2019
The man drops his kids off at school
And he's thinking of you
Like all of us do
Sends his assistant for coffee in the afternoon
Like he knows what to do
She lives in daydreams with me (she)

The single letters in "she" are actually an anagram of Harry's initials. Harry Edward Styles=HSE, which is a re-ordering of SHE. Not saying this means anything, but it's quite an interesting way to think about it lol :). I interpret she as being about Harry'a femininity, and how for years he had to be someone he wasn't. For example the line "imagines just sailing away, not telling his mates, he wouldn't know what to say" could imply that he, in the past has felt that he has to hide his true identity, due to toxic masculinity that was constantly forced upon him by society, it may have even been a reference towards his former band mates, as they "traditionally" dress and act more"masculine" than Harry does/did, which would explain why he says "he wouldn't know what to say". Just my interpretation, not saying it's correct, everyone's free to believe whatever they want and enjoy his music!TPWK :)

I 100% agree with the other comment that she = Harrys feminism.
This is so obvious for me especially in the line "she lives in daydreams with me". This just shows that he dreams about being able to express his feminism but is unable to show it to the world.
I don't think this song is about a person AT ALL
now the line "not telling his mates, wouldn't know what to say"
This is like harry not knowing how to tell the people around him about his sexuality and is unsure what he would even say. He wishes he could just sail away and express himself.
A woman who's just in his head (just in his head)
And she sleeps in his bed (his bed)
While he plays pretend (pretend)
Harry sleeps with other women but just pretends to hide how he really feels. By someone just being in his head he doesn't feel anything with them he just thinks about them.
This could also be interpreted as 'she" being part of himself, like 'she' sleeps in his bed while he plays pretend could mean he just pretends to be someone he isn't etc.
Just my thoughts on this song any way I'm up for any other suggestions cause I loveeee this song!!!
