Over Again Lyrics

Said I’d never leave her
Cause her hand fit like my T-shirt
Tongue tied over three words, cursed
Running over thoughts that made my feet hurt
Body’s intertwined with her lips.

Now she’s feeling so low since she went solo
Hole in the...

    I think "Over Again" is a bit like "Same Mistakes". It's about a relationship that has fallen apart.

    I think this song is about a guy and a girl breaking up. They both love each other a lot but the guy doesn't know how to say he loves her. So she breaks up with him cause she thinks he doesn't care, when really he does. The girl feels broken inside but shows no emotion that would indicate that she misses him. Basically shes trying to show him she's strong and shes fine without him even though she still loves him and misses him.Then he starts to think she never cared so he starts acting as if he doesn't care as well. Eventually the guy realizes that she really does care. He offers to give his broken parts to her even though she's hurt him by making him think the whole thing was a lie. He asks her if they can forget the past and just start it all over again

    Ok, I just want to say I think that one of the verses is about Larry Stylinson. I know it doesn't fit in with the song's theme but I am pretty sure that

    "Can we stop this for a minute?
    You know, I can tell that your heart isn’t in it or with it"

    Is about Louis and Eleanor. (and possibly if modest was planning Haylor for a while them as well) Louis/Harry want to stop hiding their sexuality and people are starting to be able to tell that Eleanor/Taylor are beards and Elounor/Haylor isn't as happy as Larry.

    "Whether we’re together or apart
    We can both remove the masks and admit we regret it from the start" Harry/Louis want to remove their masks (beards) and admit they regret hiding in the first place.

    I don't know, just an idea.

    This song is about how the guy (one direction) is feeling depressed because he and his girlfriend just broke up but he is unsure if he she ever really loved him even though he still loves her. He says that it's not a joke to him so can they do it all over again. But he is still unsure if he really loves him but he is still willing to give her his heart even though he is convinced that she doesn't love him.

    Over again means that he was bad and the girl left him and he is really upset

    ''Said I’d never leave her cause our hands fit like my t-shirt, tongue tied over three words, cursed.''

    She leaved him.

    ''If you’re pretending from the start like this, With a tight grip, then my kiss can mend your broken heart I might miss everything you said to me... etc. And I will give you all my heart So we can start it all over again''

    He hopes she will give him a new chance by showing her more love.

    If you look at the whole lyric, you can see that it is about a girl that have broken up with her boyfriend and she is not showing any emotion about the breakup but, he can see deep down inside her that the girl is broken and hurt like he is. Do he is wondering if they can start it all over again because he knows that they can't live without eachother because they fit perfectly.

    I don't know if this is right, but yeah... :) xo

    I think over again is about a guy who really likes this girl,but they break it off and hes upset cause he always promised hed never leave her cause they were perfect then it moves onto explaining the girls point of view where shes really down about the break up nd doesnt like being alone the guy says his heart has a hole just like the moddle of a polo mint the guy thinks shes pretendin she doesnt love him nd he is saying he can help he thinks he can fix her heart so maybe shes been hurt before? he says he could forget everything that happened in the pass he says he can "lend you broken parts" which might mean his heart has been broken by someone too? then he goes on to say he wants too start all aover again to try again i think?

    I'm not actually sure of the meaning of the song, but I'm trying.
    I think this song is about the boy loving the girl an awful lot, and she never loved him until she broke up with him, and he will forgive her if she wants, because he lives her too much.
    Just a thought. :)
