Clouds Lyrics

[Verse 1 - Harry:]
I know you said
That you don’t like it complicated
That we should try to keep it simple
But love is never ever simple

[Pre-chorus - Louis:]
You’re gonna see the things that I see
You’re gonna want the air...

    I think it's about a struggling relationship. It is difficult to maintain because the narrator is famous. They argue a lot and then the narrator goes out and drinks. He is asking if the cycle will ever end.

    in my onpinion, they try to tell their past girlfriends, or the people they loved that left them, that they are going to regret leaving them:

    You’re gonna see the things that I see
    You’re gonna want the air that I breathe
    You’re gonna wish you never left me"

    since the are extremely famous and that they are above everyone else and while the people that left them are regreting their decision,they will be celebrating their success

    "Here we go again
    Another go round for all of my friends
    Another non stop, will it ever end
    We’re never coming back down
    Yeah we’re looking down on the clouds"

    I think clouds shows that one direction are known for their fame but they want to be seen for them. This song shows that they can see when people genuinely like them. '

    Since this song was writen by Louis and Zayn the meaning of clouds may be dubious, about always being on airplanes from country to country and also about weed.
    The author is a little bitter for being left, he blames his lover for not being able to cope with the changings in their relationship.He's partying with his mates trying mot to show how much he's hurt.

    'Clouds' is really iffy.
    In my opinion, I think its about how the someone picks fights w/ their partner and ends their relationship and the boys (Harry, Louis, Niall, Zayn, & Liam) are saying that their partner is goinf to regret losing them.
