James Arthur: Naked Meaning
No tags, suggest one.
Song Released: 2017
Hey, you there
Can we take it to the next level, baby, do you dare?
Don't be scared
'Cause if you can say the words, I don't know why I should care
'Cause here I am, I'm givin' all I can
But all you ever do is...

I think he's simply saying he loves this lady but she cannot see it because she goes through life thinking if she doesn't need anyone no one can hurt her so he's telling her he is standing here naked because he is pouring out all his feelings hoping she will see how much he loves her.

He is in a relationship, but she is not willing to let others know or go public with it therefore taking it to the next level. He doesn’t like keeping their secret and wants to be able to be himself around her wherever they are. She is too prideful to show the world that she needs and loves him and so she pushes him away and pretends she doesn’t need anyone and it hurts him deeply. He is desperate to keep their relationship alive but also tired of being hurt and on the back burner. He knows that she is scared but he validates that fear by telling her don’t you see that I’m naked and vulnerable too? I want to give everything to you but I deserve more. You deserve more too, but if you’re not willing to break down your walls, we won’t work and it’s killing me to have to let you go. Please make a choice. And please choose me.

I think this song represents the guy giving all he has and how the girl is not letting him love her as she's scared to accept it and let it get too deep, maybe from the previous experience she's had from the past. The guy is asking the girl to open up a little bit so she can see how beautiful love really is but she's just scared of loving.

Maybe the girl doesn't want a relationship ... she's Happy with him being there . Because no commitment , means no hurt , no expectations and all these . The guy is the one who cares more and want everything of her , not just some part or half of her. He is there with everything he has , he is naked ..he is showing her his all sides . But she is not willing to do the same.She is not ready to take it to the next level to the relationship . And he's giving her the deadline too ... that he's not going to wait for her , because it litteraly kills him when the other doesn't give you the same love , same feelings you are giving to them .so she has to break down her walls if she wants him in her life.

I think this song is about him breaking down and wanting to give a girl he loves so much everything he has and that’s why he uses the metaphor of standing here naked. Like everyone has their own issues and puts up walls, to protect themselves. His like saying hey in the conversation look I’m giving you all I am and now I need you to swallow your pride because I’m clearly not like the guy that hurt you. I WANT TO GIVE YOU EVERYTHING, and in the video when his saying this line his hands are together and it’s like his praying but also begging her at the same time.

The song is about how stupid and hurtful Rita Ora has been to him. Wish more guys where like him. James Arthur is amazing

i think the lyrics that says "im standing here naked" is a complete metaphor. he is trying to give her everything he has, showing her his true emotions he has for her, all the love he has his for her, hence the reference to standing there naked. however the girl has a very high front or maybe shes just very insecure thats why he keeps going "pretending you dont need anyone". he wants her to know he`s there for her.
i dont know if this sounds stupid omg im only 16 but this song spoke out to me alot

he put himself out there. He fell so hard for her and all he wants is for her to realize that he is there. He's standing right there all exposed waiting for her to reciprocate those feelings and give him a chance. It doesn't seem to be fair to invest and give your all when all you're getting only a part. He wants her to remove her shield and stand exposed right beside him believing he won't hurt her.

The guy wants a relationship. He loves her, he wants to be with her. But at the same time, he won’t wait for her forever. He simply wants her to open up and not be scared of being with him. He wants her to know how much he cares and he desperately wants the same from her.

I think it's about how the main character loves someone,but they are afraid. Naked probably means they are stripped to their emotions. There is no pride in them. They gave it all away for this peeson they love.

I believe it’s about him wanting to have sex with her, but she is not ready. It’s almost like he’s trying to force her to have sex with him.

Sound like hes giving her all he can and her wall is high up and hes just giving and hes only get half off what he wants so he keeps trying to get his all from the person he loves and he wants the next level with her and shes not giving it then she keeps messing it up coz she dont know what she wants and he wants a her to pick what she wants and he not going to wait long coz hes giving up giving his all and not getting it back and he wants her to decide on what she want he cant hold on no more so he saying he standing there ready to give his all for her but if not hes ready letting go off her off her all he wants his her and for her to stop messing around.

I think the song is from the girls perspective and everything she tries to do, he decides its not good enough because he's so prideful. She's been stripped so far down by him always dismissing what she has to say, leaving her naked. She's giving all she has into the relationship.

I think his song is about him loving this one girl and he wants to go further but she was lacking love because she overthinks that who she is, is not worthy for him. So James proves her wrong and at the end they come back stronger than ever. If you really listen to the lyrics it’s really deep and people may relate.
