Miss You Lyrics

Is it my imagination?
Is it something that I’m taking?
All the smiles that I’m faking
“Everything is great
Everything is fucking great”
Going out every weekend
Staring at the stars on the ceiling
Hollywood friends, gotta see them
Such a...

    I think this song is about One Direction and person who he missed (Harry).

    In a MV you can see Louis with four other guys(One Direction) and then we have [Just one more pint or five]

    [Does it even matter anyway?]
    I think Louis wanna say it doesn't matter if they are together (1D). He just missed Harry

    [Now I’m asking my friends how to say “I’m sorry”
    They say “Lad, give it time, there’s no need to worry”]
    This is propably about Harry because if you did hear other songs from Louis you know that Louis did leave Harry (propably when 1D went for a break)

    And this song is from 2017 so I think in that time they weren't together yet

    So at the end I think it is about 1D a Harry.

    (sorry for my English)

    I think that this song could be about an ex, who the singer broke up with, but realizes that he still misses them. He is trying to have fun and let go, but, in the back of his mind, he misses the person and wants to go back to that life. It could be about Louis and Harry, but I don't know. That's just my thoughts. By the way, all my directioners: Watch drag me down and story of my life to get it to one billion views! Have a good day!

    I think this song is Louis telling Harry that he misses him and after the band broke up and Louis and Harry could not be seen together Louis didnt have a good time with his other friends without Harry

    I always had the feeling like "Miss You" is about Harry, wether as a couple or just (Best) friends in general.
    Especially because of the lines "Now I'm asking my friends how to say I'm sorry, they say 'Lad, give it time, there's no need to worry.'", like he messed up big time with Harry and never found the words to apologise.

    I read an article where Louis stated it really is about Eleanor and I can see that too, but on the other hand I don't see the reference in a few lines.
    E.g. "But we can't even be on the phone now, and I can't even be with you alone now. Oh, how shit changes, we were in love, now we're strangers."
    Louis and Eleanor got back together in 2017 which is also the year when the song was published.
    I'm pretty sure that IF Louis and Eleanor had really alienated that much, then it would have been by far more difficult for them to come together once more.
    Personally I believe it's about Harry, like I already said above, Louis messed up and he wants to rekindle their special bond but Louis doesn't quite know How.

    So to put it in a nutshell, I think it could be about Harry or Eleanor :)

    It's about missing someone and wishing you could go back being with them. That feeling when you try to fun but the thought of that someone you miss hits you.

    I can relate with this with my old friends, even if I try to have fun on my own or with new friends the thought of them hits me every time "the lights go on".

    Tbh, I am really not sure but i think that there is a slight chance that this song is about Harry and how he misses him very much and how he is sorry that they couldn't be together because management. But at the same time it also could be about Eleanor. Either way, it's a great song and it is personally one of my favourite songs by Louis. Btw, this is coming from a Larry stan :)
