Better Than Words Lyrics
Better than words
But more than a feeling
Crazy in love
Dancing on the ceiling
Everytime we touch
I'm all shook up
You make me wanna *sigh*
How deep is your love?
God only knows, baby
I don't know how else to sum...

I don't think there's a clear cut meaning of this song, people are taking it way too literally. Every lyric of this song is literally the title or main part of a chorus from another well-known song. I'm the very first line, better than words(1D), more than a feeling(BOSTON),crazy in love(Beyonce&jayz), dancing on the ceiling (Lionel Richie), every time we touch(..the honestys too much),I'm all shook up (ELVIS),U make me wanna(USHER),How deep is your love(BEE GEES),God only knows(BEACH BOYS), Baby, Baby(JUSTIN BIEBER)... I could go on, but I won't, I think I've made my point. If they are saying anything at all with the song which I still seriously doubt it is that their love is so great for whoever or whatever they can't find the words so they're going to use the words from the most classic love songs they can find. I actually think it's the most genius lyrics and song in their entire catalog. Absolutely brilliant.

This song is basically saying, that the love they have for all their fans is 'Better than words" they don't know how to thank them enough. That's basically how the chorous is defined. But indeed the verses are about sex. End of story.

the song is talking about, how the girl makes him feel and he doesn't know how to show how much she means to him, the way she moves, making him happy and he's crazy in love, the girl makes him a better person, loving him for who he is. but in return he tries his best to show her his love.

It's been said in an interview, this song has been written by Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson. It's about someone that doesn't know how to express his feelings. That's why this song is only composed of titles of songs (Best I ever had - Beyonce, Hips Don't Lie - Shakira...), songs that are "better than words" (or than its own words) to express what he feels. It's genius.

I just think that words can't describe how much he loves her.

Sex. It says, "best I ever had, HIPS DONT LIE" you use your HIPS when you have sex, right? And he's talking about the "best he ever had" like the best sex he ever had. Sorry, but there is NO WAY those lyrics aren't talking about sex.

It's like the boy who makes the mixtape or cd for the girl that he is crazy about. He doesn't know how to put his own feelings in to words, so he uses his favorite songs or at least, songs that show how he feels. In the first and second verse, every line is a song title. For example, I'm All Shook Up - Elvis Presley, Always Be My Baby - Mariah Carey.

I think this song is about what love feels like and how words can not describe it and will never prepare you for how wonderful the feeling is.
