One Direction: Happily Meaning
Get "Happily" on MP3:Get MP3 from Amazon
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...

they are not gay people geez, for goodness sake just because harry co-wrote it.
it just means that a boy and a girl were in a relationship and the girl broke up with the guy because it was too much pressure. the girl is dating another guy now. the guy aka the person who is singing the song, i saying how much he misses her and he doesn't care what people say about them when they are together, he just want her and him to ive happily.

Gosh, everyone thinks it's about Larry.

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.
NOW HERE COMES THE HAPPY PART OF HAPPILY punspuns
"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
"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.
I DONT CARE WHAT PEOPLE SAY WHEN WERE TOGETHER.

Well Louis' bit means that he fucked someone and doesn't care if her boyfriend finds Louis' cum in her hair... why the fuck am I obsessed with these guys

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
