Habit Lyrics

I always said that I'd mess up eventually
I told you that, so what did you expect from me?
It shouldn't come as no surprise anymore
I know you said that you'd give me another chance
But you and I knew the truth of it in advance
That...

    [I always said that I'd mess up eventually
    I told you that, so what did you expect from me?
    It shouldn't come as no surprise anymore
    I know you said that you'd give me another chance
    But you and I knew the truth of it in advance
    That mentally, you were already out the door.]

    The first verse refers to Harry, and the management overall. Modest! made Louis hide his sexuality from the world, trying to keep the image of a perfect 'straight' boy band, because they wanted their fanbase (which is over 80% female) to think they had a chance with at least one of the boys. In mid 2013 Larry stopped being as close as they used to be, and many of the fans suspect that they were in a relationship, causing the management to force them apart. In my opinion, I think that Modest! thought that Larry were giving too many hints, and the eagle-eyed fans caught right onto it. I think this is what Louis means by 'messing up'.
    Larry were probably given a few chances in the beginning, which I think is the meaning of the second verse. It can also refer to Harry, idk, believe what you will believe.
    The last verse, and the ending of the stanza, refers to the fact that this was very emotionally and mentally harming to both Harry and Louis.

    [Never thought that giving up would be this hard
    God, I'm missing you and your addictive heart.]

    Sorry, but this just screams Harry Styles to me.

    [You're the habit that I can't break
    You're the feeling I can't put down
    You're the shiver that I can't shake
    You're the habit that I can't break
    You're the high that I need right now
    You're the habit that I can't break.]

    This stanza can refer to One Direction as a whole, but sorry it still screams Larry to me.

    [I took some time 'cause I've ran out of energy
    Of playing someone I heard I'm supposed to be
    But honestly, I don't have to choose anymore.]

    This is honestly the most heartbreaking stanza to me. It again implies to the fact that Louis is tired of being someone he isn't. Louis is perfect the way he is, and about being gay, it's the freaking 21st century, people! No one cares about your sexuality anymore! You can be whoever the f*ck you want and love whoever the f*ck you want! Louis is right that he doesn't have to choose anymore, and I'm honestly so proud of him.

    [And it's been ages, different stages
    Come so far from Princess Park
    I'll always need ya
    In front of me, in front of me.]

    This is the most obvious Larry reference in the entire song. 'Princess Park' refers to when Larry lived together.

    [You gave me the time and the space
    I was out of control, and I'm sorry I let you down.
    Guess that I know what I already knew
    I was better with you and I miss you now.]

    This in my opinion, refers to Larry's relationship. This song shows how much Louis has grown in the past few years

    okay so i’m not one of those people that think every song by louis and harry are about each other, but you can not convince me that this song is not about harry. I mean, like he mentions princess park, and that’s where they used to live together. idk but i genuinely think it’s about harry.

    I am a Larry and I get the that this could scream LARRY-But I also think it could be about One Direction. Hear me out-its well known that Louis didn't want 1D to break up. So maybe that's why he says that you said you would give me another chance, but mentally you were already out the door. Because they wanted to take a break and he didn't...and Louis has said that he never expected the break to be as hard on him as it was. I think the Princess Park reference is because that's where the entire band lived in the beginning...I think maybe this song is about Louis missing 1D and his friends, I mean he did pretty much grow up in that band with those people. I DO think that Louis and Harry were in love, but not everything has to be about Larry, even if I really REALLY want it to be...

    bro this is such a larry song. “ your the habit i cant break” “come so far from princess park” “i ran out of energy of playing someone i heard im supposed to be”
    i mean like - we all know how sh*tty their management label was towards them and how sh*tty s*mon was to them all as a band and louis has shown us through his songs. so if larry was even real ( it might not be) but like fr imagine how they probably treated a same sex couple - i mean this song could be for the fans like it would make sense but this does too. sorry antis <3.

    habit
    he could be talkin about the fans and how they mean so much to him and how he knew eventually he would do something wrong and that he knew they expected that and he didnt want them to give up on him and he misses that fandom (one direction) and their love for him and being w the boys.
    he ran out of energy of being told who to be and how to act by simon and managment and he had to get away and had to leave and spend time to himself bc he didn’t remember himself as himself and he doesnt have to choose between his management or his own happiness anymore - he can be himself ( come so far from princess park )
    and hes sorry he broke his promise of being away from them for so long “you gave me the time and the space, i was out of control and im sorry i let you down”
    “ but i was better w you, and i miss you now” now hes had that much needed time to himself he can return to that love and the fans that waited for him and we are the ‘habit he cant break’.

    Isn‘t rather Eleanor Louis habit ?
    Because idk But I dont really see this song as a larry song like all of you...
    The Princess Park could just mean je came so far from where he started...First lived without parents (‚for the music‘) , his career....and also the start...he broke up with Eleanor then came back together and so on yk, could also just mean that he tried but it just didnt work...but I think just like you that there could be some Larry-things like this part where he got tired of be not himself.

    I love Larry as porbably all of you and I wish that it is real, BUUUT idk why all of you are so sure that this song is about Harry.
    I mean he had a on-off relationship with Eleanor, which would explain the first sentences and then...to the Princess Park thing...it was his first house at the beginning of his career, its like the place of birth of his music and him as a singer.He could also mean that it was a long way from where he started...Yk I dont want to offend you in any way but I think that there are maanyyyy louder songs and this song is rather about Eleanor..

    I love this song so much!
    I would honestly not be surprised if Louis made it official that the song was about Harry. I mean "Come so far from Princess Park." That is little to obvious isn't it ;)

    Larries take the crown with this one, honestly. Antis can try as hard as possible but there is no heterosexual explanation of this.

    The song refers to beautiful Harry. The eyes never lie. You are the love of his life. There is a sadness behind his eyes without you. You only get one Life so spend it with true love. You are the most beautiful couple and are breaking a millions hearts because you are not together.
    Be true to who you are. You both belong with each other as in my 6 decades I have never seen the love you both ooze when near each other. Breathtaking. Love to you both please be happy as life is so short.

    i think this song is about harry.
    he said: "I took some time 'cause I've ran out of energy
    Of playing someone I heard I'm supposed to be"

    he has shown in many of his mv that he had to wear a mask, aka be someone who he didnt want to be.now we can all take that in different interpretations but if you know what im thinking,, good job ahha. its no mystery simon and the management controlled them horribly, and it has something to do with that for sure.
    lets talk about another lyric:
    "And it's been ages, different stages
    Come so far from Princess Park"
    hes literally spelling it out!!

    I do not agree:
    “This song could be about his music career. He has come so far since starting the career while living at Princess Park.
    The line 'its been ages different stages' might be about all that has happened as he grew up through the years.
    He almost quit after One Direction but singing is the habit he couldn't break.“

    Guys he sings YOU’RE the habit, that I can’t break. This is not about a thing, it’s about Harry. Don’t even try to convince me otherwise.
    And it’s been ages (it literally has) different stages (in their relationship) come so far from PRINCESS PARK

    This song could be about his music career. He has come so far since starting the career while living at Princess Park.
    The line 'its been ages different stages' might be about all that has happened as he grew up through the years.
