One Direction: Taken Meaning
Song Released: 2012
Now that you can't have me
You suddenly want me
Now that I'm with somebody else
You tell me you love me
I slept on your doorstep
Beggin' for one chance
Now that I've finally moved on
You say that you've missed me all...

It's about an ex coming back into the picture after they have finally realised you're happy without them. They've realised what they have given up. The ex thinks they can just walk back in, she thinks that he is trying to make her jealous, but actually he just wants to get on with his new relationship. Although he has somebody else, part of him still breaks when he sees her wanting him back. she still knows how to mess with his mind, but isn't letting it get to him because he is done with all the heartbreak and pain she brought him.
(liam and a girl that rejection him for a date more than 13 times )

It's about the boy realizing that his ex, or his crush for a long time "wants" him as he finds another girl. He understands that she doesn't really love him, she just doesn't want to see him with anyone else. The girl only tries to break his heart, just because she knows she has the power to do so. So the boy finally cuts her off, and tells her that he's happy now.

Out of all the answers I have the craziest ones okay?
You know before x-factor and all that. They might have asked a girl out. But the girl might have said 'NO' so after they got famous and sexy hot and funny the girls will be crawling back for another chance even though they have girlfriends
I KNOW CRAZY

I think the song's about a girl wanting to use them only for their fame. Or maybe they just want to annoy them by acting like they want them when they are already 'taken'.
"You only love to see me breaking
You only want me 'cause I'm taken
You don't really want my heart
No, you just like to know you can
Still be the one who gets it breaking
You only want me when I'm taken"

It means that a boy liked a girl and tried asking her out. She says no and he moves on and gets a girlfriend. She then gets jealous and wants him back because she wants him to be hers.

I think this is about an awkward relationship when one of them alway has to ruin the others happiness when they find someone they are happy with

Its about a boy who really liked a girl but she wouldn't give him a chance even after he tried everything. Finally he decides to move on and finds another girl he is happy with. But once he does that,, the previous girl misses all the attention that the boy was giving her and tells him that she always loved him and missed him just to get the boy to devote his heart to her once again.

It's about this boy and this girl that had been in a relationshop, but it all went wrong and they broke up. The boy has moved on with another girl, and the girl he had broken up with wants him back just because he's taken.

It's about a girl who loves a guy only when he has a different girlfriend, maybe out of jealousy. He used to love her-hence the lyrics "I slept on your doorstep, begging for one chance." But he moved on after realizing who the girl really is. And the girl finally sees that she loves him. Bad explanation, I know.

This song is about a boy who loves a girl so much but the girl just takes him for granted. and when the two split up, the girl is being desperate to have the guy back but the guy already found somebody else.

The song Taken by One Direction is about a previous relationship the boy had shared with a girl. It had gone wrong & they split up. Now that the boy is happy and moved on with another girl, his ex-girlfriend is trying to get him back, and he doesn't understand why. - @hugme_horan
