Happily Lyrics

[Verse 1]
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...

    OMG The first interpretation is soooo righhhtttttt haha anyway this song is so about larry it's not even funny i mean for god's sake Harry co-wrote this nd "a twist of fate made it so we had to walk away" Duhh it's talking about modest telling them larry is not accepted. "We were meant to be" He's clearly saying he loves him and they want to be together. "I don't care what people say when we're together" Duh he doesn't give a sh*t abt what people say bc Harry Loves louis

    C'mon guys let's be a little serious about this, if you don't think this song is at least 10% about Larry then you are in completely denial, like let's see at the very deep lyrics.

    (Also take in mind that harry-fucking-edward-styles co-wrote this song AND he hasn't really been in a "serious" or "evident" relationship apart from Louis whether-you-believe-it-or-not)

    "You don't understand, you don't understand. What you do to me when you hold his hand" IF THAT ISN'T STRONG OR ABOUT ELEANOR (even if you take her as a beard or not) THEN I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO SAY. yep maybe louis doesn't understand if he may be hurting harry when he's with her.

    "We were meant to be" okay since we don't have the lyrics book I've been having an issue listening if he says "but it's just a fade" or "but a twist of fate", the point is that yes I think they are meant to be, I mean they met even before txf and then got put together into a boyband, and let's not talk about the mirroring and soulmate bullshit; but then it's the other part of the verse, if it really says "but it's just a fade" I would really like to see what the fuck happened or what they think about it, and if it is "but a twist of fate" I would relate their problems as "the biggest boyband in the world" and that obviously that includes modest. And then is "made it so we had to walk away" and basically we all know how separate they are from each other now. Anyways is extremely sad huh.

    Let's move on cause I'm crying like the showers that are brittish.

    "Cause we're on fire we're on fire, we're on fire now" I get you're on fire, and in my personal opinion I take it as the "edge" of something. alsoonenightithoughttheywerehorneyandlaughedsohardokay.


    "I don't care what people say when we're together" ????????????!!?!! He can't be more obvious is2g

    "You know I wanna be the one who hold you in your sleep" I NENED HLEP. First of all louis fucking knows and I mean harry is so sappy I'm gonna puke. Imagine them cuddling and blame me for suicide attempts.

    "I just want it to be you and I forever" FOREVER F O R E V E R REVEROF for e ver. soulmatesthingagain

    "I know you wanna leave so c'mon baby be with me so happily" I assume that "leave" as giving up (which louis clearly clarifies he's not going anyway in strong) AND THEN THE BE WITH ME SO HAPPILY I MEAN THEYRE SO CUTE I WANT TO KEEP THEM IN MY BOOB POCKET AND TAKE CARE OF THEM FOREVER

    *banjo solo*

    "It's 4 am and I know that you're with him, I wonder if he knows that i touched your skin" put a little bit of effort and change the genre of the song (whichimalmostsureharrywilldoitinconcerts) so yeah a brand new world in front of your little bambi eyes.

    "And if he feels my traces in your hair, I'm sorry love but i don't really care" same louis, same harry, same everyone

    Let's just ignore the love, don't wanna have a mental breakdown in my room.

    Then they're on fire again and blah

    Repeat the chorus and basically you have the sappiest and in my opinion the most reveling song of their entire careers.

    And I respect (but-do-not-care) if you ship elounor or whatever but just try to see it in another point if view and yeah.

    I wanted to do this a while ago and I should be doing my homework but instead I did this painful interpretation and ate all the ice cream of my house.

    Seriously. Harry co-wrote this, you guys. I'm not even a Directioner but I like this song along with a couple others and even I can see it. I pretty much guarantee this is about Louis and Harry. The song literally goes "I don't care what people say when we're together," which is, I believe a reference to how homosexuality is still pretty controversial in our society and could also be talking about the amount of backlash they could get from fans and media for coming out. Another line from this song that I think validates my opinion is "I know you wanna leave so come on baby be with me so happily" which is referring to how Harry wants Louis to leave that Eleanor chick or beard or whatever and be with him. So yeah, that's just my opinion, along with the rest of Tumblr. I personally don't give a flying flip if they're gay, but if they love each other and this song is about what I think it is about, everyone needs to get over themselves and just let the two of them be happy jfc.

    Harry: You dont under stand you dont understand what you do to me when you hold his hand
    Obviously saying it hurts him when he sees eleanor holding louis' hand.
    We WERE MEANT TO BE BUT A TwIsT Of FaTe made it so we had to walk away.
    Okay. Larry met more than once. Then got put into a boyband. Fate. Anyways, the twist was Modest Management.
    It is so a Larry song.

    Okay the first interpretation is gross. How could you even say that that's freaking weird. Anyways, I think that it means he wants her to marry him, thus, 'live with me so happily' that sounds like a proposal.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    I think that harry had a close female friend and with management being so strict he had to stop talking to her,he now sees that she is with somebody else and cant handle the pain but he has to follow management gotta luv modest!

    The guy is in love with a girl. They've dated but along the way they broke up and now she is dating someone else. He feels like its just them two when they are together and doesn't care what people say about as long as they have each they will be alright. The girl is still dating the other guy but he doesn't care. The guy wants them to live happily
