One Direction: Happily Meaning
You don't understand, you don't understand
What you do to me when you hold his hand
We were meant to be, but it's just a fade
Made it so we had to walk away
'Cause we're on fire, we're on on fire
We're on fire now
Yeah, we're on...

THIS SONG IS OBV ABOUT LARRY, AND FOR THOSE OF U WHO SAY ITS ABT HAYLOR, LET ME CLARIFY STH
harry wrote this when he is WITH taylor. WITH. so why does it say "you dont understand, you dont understand, what you do to me when you hold his hand." ????hold is hand????? is taylor cheating with harry in public???
and also, "and if he feels my traces in your hair, sorry love but i dont really care." again, if this song is abt haylor, then that means that taylor is cheAtinG with harry.
andddDdD "so come on baby be with me so HAPPILY" haylor was happy together alr... so????????
in conclusion, this is abt larry stylinson.

So, Harry wrote the song, along with some other song writers that help them. As you know, management is very strict about all the Larry Stylinson stuff. If you listen to the lyrics closely, you can understand that this song is all about Larry. They want to be together, but it's not accepted.

No hate to Larries (we're all fellow Directioners!). You should read these: https://www.seventeen.com/celebrity/a10350811/louis-tomlinson-confirms-that-larry-shippers-ruined-his-deep-friendship-with-harry-styles/ and https://www.cheatsheet.com/entertainment/louis-tomlinson-tired-harry-styles-larry-stylinson-rumors-euphoria.html/ Please don't take this the wrong way I'm open to Larry and stuff but they could just be friends. Or they could be more ;) I hope this doesn't offend Larries I'm not an anti believe it or not :)

This song is so about Harry & Louis. It was co-written by Harry & who was Harry closest to? Louis. I don't know if the boys are still together today, but they were together & strong between 2010-2014. You would have to be blind not to have seen it. Remember how jealous Harry used to get when anyone even touched Louis? Remember when the boys were all sitting together on that couch during an interview & Louis & Harry were on the end & the guy giving the interview leaned forward & put his hand on Louis' knee & Harry almost came out of his skin staring daggers at him. What did Harry do? The minute that guy removed his hand Harry immediately put his hand on the same EXACT spot claiming Louis. They were so funny to watch & so natural together. There was no acting going on. They were in love. I don't even care if they are together anymore, but you will never be able to take those moments away from them. Those things actually happened & we all saw it. And to deny them of something to pure is just wrong! And to the people saying this song is about haylor. Don't insult the boys. When Louis was asked what he thought about Harry's relationship w/Taylor he said "I'm glad they're good friends" & then he added under his breath "if that." No one made him say that & no one knew Harry better than Louis so I'm going to take his word that Taylor & Harry were never more than friends. I'm not claiming to know what Harry or Louis' sexual orientation is. I don't care if they are straight, gay, bisexual or whatever. But you will never, ever, ever be able to change or take away what happened between them. It is what it is & it was beautiful & it was real.

(I'm a Larry shipper) While Louis was dating Eleanor he didn't seem to smile a lot. He did seem pretty happy with Harry. Believe what you believe. This is my opinion. I mean I understand that Eleanor made Louis happy, but I just didn't see it. Either way believe what you believe.

This song is about a boy and girl that are not in a relationship but are close friends , they both have romantic feelings for each other but can't be together as the girl has a boyfriend. When it says, "I know you want leave so baby C'mon be with me," it means he knows the girl isn't happy with the other guy so she should just come and be with him. When it says "I wonder if he knows that I touched your skin" its a bit smug and sarcastic because the boyfriend is probably aware that the girl is in love with someone else but he doesn't know that the boy and girl may have had intimate moments ;)... Yes I meant momentS as in more than one, these moments probably kisses and long hugs.
The line, "And if he feels my traces in your hair," is and interesting one it means if the boyfriend notices that the girls mind is always on the boy and she's always thinking about him but not only that it could also mean is the boyfriend notices small things on the girl like the scent of the boy or may a piece of jewelry he gifted her. Anyway this is just what I think is the actual meaning for the song but it might not be.

Stop Larry interpretations noww please.
It's not about Larry
Even if Harry co-wrote it doesn't mean he wrote the entire song. He wrote little bits.
The managment probably wrote the rest!
It's NOT about larry.
anonymous Aug 26th, 2014 8:31pm report
It's about Larry, you dipshits
How fucking dumb can you get, you ignorant twats???!!! "I DON'T CARE WHAT PEOPLE SAY WHEN WE'RE TOGEEEEETHEEERRRRR" YEAH RIGHT OH YEAH THAT IS SOOOOOOO NOT ABOUT HARRY'S BOYFRIEND WOW OKAY I CAN'T BELIEVE I EVER THOUGHT THAT, GEE, WOW, I MUST BE SO """DELUDED"""
All these little girls shipping Elounor just make me laugh. "Deluded". Ha. How about you get yourself a new, ORIGINAL insult instead of calling everyone "deluded"??????
God, I can't believe I let myself get mad about childish shit like this.
If you don't believe in Larry, that's fucking fine and dandy, just don't go traipsing around and waving your little beard "proof" in my face. How many fucking times have you seen Louis look happy in a pic with Eleanor? How many fucking times have Elounor even HELD HANDS fucking PROPERLY? You think that just because "Louis" tweets Eleanor, they're in love? Hell, no! Reak couples don't use fucking social media to show their love, they text/snapchat/direct message/FUCKING TALK IN PRIVATE instead of feeling the need to BROADCAST retarded fucking conversations like damn how stupid do you have to believe that twitter shit
@Louis_Tomlinson loves Eleanor Calder.
Louis Tomlinson loves Harry Styles.
Also, how come when any other couples go out in public, we only get a few, low quality, stolen little pap shots, but when Eleanor goes out, we come back with 108432488451025604 HQ pictures and the whole fucking world has to know about it?
I saw a nice little thing on Tumblr, it goes like this:
Elounor: *see cameras and start holding hands*
Larry: *see cameras and stop holding hands*
Holy fuck, I'm mad.
When has your otp mirrored eachother for EVERY FUCKING MOVE THEY MAKE???????? When has your otp TATTOOED THEIR FIRST WORDS TO EACHOTHER?????????? Does your otp have a whole fucking body full of ink explaining their fucking love for eachother? When was the last time Elounor kissed eachother, for real?
Ah, remember the time that Eleanor sat on a couch, and Louis sat RIGHT FUCKING NEXT TO HER WITH THEIR THIGHS PRESSED FUCKING SKIN-TO-SKIN even though the WHOLE FUCKING REST OF THE COUCH WAS EMPTY? Wasn't that cute???
THAT WAS HARRY.
Oh, how about the time an interviewer touched Eleanor's knee and Louis got all upset and jealous and grabbed Eleanor's knee and pulled her closer to him??
Oh, wait, shit, THAT WAS HARRY TOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I could go on and fucking on forever and ever until he universe collapses, and I would still never run out of reasons why your otp could NEVER compare to the love of harryandlouis.
Just wanna give a shoutout and a huge FUCK YOU to the comments above, calling Larry shippers "deluded", "dumb", "gross", "weird", or "stupid".
A future word of advice: Keep your mouth shut tight and your thoughts to yourself, because us poor little deluded Larry believers can't be held responsible if you get your feelings hurt while we're defending harryandlouis.
PEACE OUT MOTHERFUCKERS

This song, if you didn't know, was co-written by Harry Styles and clearly he is talking about Louis. He says "You don't understand, you don't understand. What you do to me when you hold his hand" He is talking about how Eleanor holding Louis' hands hurt his feelings.
"I dont care what people say when we're together.I just want it to be you and I forever" Could it get anymore obvious? He is saying that he want to be with Louis forever and he doesn't care what people say when he is with Louis because they are gay but fell deeply in love.
Listen to the song carefully and you'll see this song is about Larry Stylinson.

It's about Larry. Sorry folks if you disagree but...it's kinda obvious. I would elaborate but others have put some through examination. But to further explain the "traces in my hair part", it could be a reference to those two halloween instances where louis wore white face paint and harry didn't use face paint or didn't dress up and stayed at home but at the press conference the next day he showed up with white face paint in his hair...mysterious eh?
Anyway hopefully you found that helpful :) But hey if you ship something else go right ahead, just you kinda have to admit that this sounds a bit like Larry...whether you ship it or not.
And if you ship Larry :)

I think all the Larry interpretations are laughable considering Harry and Louis hate it when they are called gay. Louis loves Eleanor, and the Larry people are extremely deluding themselves. Harry is definitely heterosexual so this Larry fantasy is all a joke to begin with. This song is definitely about a girl that the guy loves, but she is with someone else and he is jealous.
"We were meant to be but a twist of fate
Made it so you had to walk away," says the girl walked away from the relationship after something happened.
"You don't understand, you don't understand
What you do to me when you hold his hand," is about the numerous pics that appeared on the internet showing her holding the other guy's hand.
"I don't care what people say when we're together/You know I wanna be the one to hold you when you sleep," is about the hate and internet speculation about the relationship, and he doesn't care because he wants to be with her".
"It's four a.m. and I know that you're with him/I wonder if he knows that I touched your skin/And if he feels my traces in your hair/
Sorry, love, but I don't really care," is all sexual references.
"'Cause we're on fire/We are on fire/We're on fire now/Yeah, we're on fire/We are on fire/We're on fire now," is that they want each other, but it has a dual meaning, the other being that they are hot in their careers right now.
All the lines put together says they want to be together, but can't be because of their careers, but he is saying come back,"be with me," "So Happily."
