This Town Lyrics

wakin' up to kiss you and nobody's there
the smell of your perfume still in the air
its hard

yesterday i thought i saw your shadow running round
its funny how things never change in this old town
so far from the stars

and i wanna tell...

    Hes talking about where he grew up as if they were a person and saying that no matter where i am he still thinks about where he began, if the whole world was watching id still dance with you can mean that he isnt ashamed of where he began and he would gladly move back as it was his home like a partner they were meant together

    It’s either about someone he loves so much and he would do anything with her or it’s about a girl that broke his heart and he still has feelings for her

    I think this song is about him feeling deep pain ever since the girl he loved his whole life breaks up with him. He is talking his deep feelings for her and how she means everything to him. He wishes he could tell her this now.

    He still loves his ex and has pain seeing her move on or his childhood crush likes someone else.

    He's lamenting about his old love moving on with some guy. Like too much to ask, he remembers things from when they were kids until they broke up as adults. This song makes me emotional cuz the same thing happened to me....Niall also talks about the old town that he lives in, that he and his ex have both stayed and lived in it since they were kids.
