They Don't Know About Us Lyrics

People say we shouldn’t be together
We're too young to know about forever
But I say they don’t know what they talk talk talkin’ about

Cause this love is only getting stronger
So I don’t wanna wait any longer
I just wanna tell the world...

    I personally think it is about Harry and Louis. The thing is, the two of them wrote the song together. The lyrics are talking about the management when they say "people say we shouldn't be together".

    This song screams Larry Stylinson to me. That's all I have to say. Listen to the lyrics, guys. It's so freaking obvious.

    It’s about two people (not gender specific) who want to be together and to show the world that they are in love with each other but are being stopped.
    Many people think that it it about Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles as the song was co-written by the two younger boys.
    It has been said that the boys have tried to come out many times but management did not allow it.
    Years have passed and many, many people still believe the ‘Larry’ rumour.
    I’m not sure if we will ever know the truth about the song but it’s a possibility it’s about the two boys!

    This song is most definitely about Harry and Louis but it was NOT written by them. No part of it. Check the writer info.

    Many people are saying that this is about Harry & Louis, But from the day I started listening this song, I interpreted it as like a boy is talking to his girlfriend & maybe there is some rules of society or beacuse of the disagreement of the families, the boy is saying that, "people say we shouldn't be together", and they both wants to marry each other but they are too young & that is why there families are saying,"we are too young to know about forever" like we are too young & not mature enough to talking about the future, but the boy says that "they don't know what they are talking about" because this love will only get stronger, I just wanna tell the world (society or the families) that I can't wait because i love you & you are mine girl ...and the boy is keep telling that , they don't know about the things we do, they don't know that, How mych I Love You, but I bet you if they only knew, the people will get jealous of us..they don't know that I have waited all my life to find the right girl & the right love in my life, Baby they don't know these things about us, that's why they are talking that we shouldn't be together...

    Like these, we can interpret the whole song from the boy's point of view towards his girlfriend....

    One of My favorite songs..❤️

    I definitely think this is about LARRY it screams larry to me like the lyric “I just want to tell the world” Lous and Harry probably tried to come out many of times and announce to the world that Harry and Louis are in love and they are gay/bi/pan whatever they label themselves as, But management wouldn’t allow it cause they think they would have lost hundreds maybe thousands of fans and ruin the career for not just management but the boys as well but Harry and Louis didn’t care about that and they wanted to be free they wanted to be able to kiss, hug, cuddle, anytime they wanted instead of hiding their love.

    I really hope this year on the 28 of September 2021 they come out or something since it will be a very special day for the both of them but I’m 100% sure that this is a Larry song.

    It's definitely about Larry because it's about how the management wants them not to be together bc they think the boys are too young for the world to know (the wrote the song when they were both teens) like c'mon guys, they're obviously together

    im thinking Larry like many other "they see things im a diffrent light"- lots of people dont like gays, and "they don't know about us"-Larry is not official.

    I think it’s about Larry because firstly, Louis And Harry wrote it. Secondly, they are basically saying that they can’t put their relationship out to the public because people are stopping them (for example, their management). Louis was 19, almost 20 and Harry was 18, which is still quite young. In my opinion I think they’re implying that they don’t care what age they are, they are still in love but the reason people are holding them back is because it could go wrong because they are so young.

    It’s about a girl and a guy who really
    Love each other a lot but the People don’t know how much they love each other forever but when
    Niall says “ they don’t know what we do best it’s between me and you
    Our little secret” anyways it’s not about Larry it’s about a boy and a girl who loves each other but the
    People say that they are too young
    To know about each other
    So just listen to the song and really it’s about Niall and a Girl who loves
    Each other more than anything
    But in the end they kept it a secret
    Forever but if the people only
    Knew they would just be jealous of
    Love Rachel Tullis

    I think this song is about a relationship. Keeping relationships isn't a very easy thing. It may has ups and downs. People can only see it from outside and there's few things they have to judge it. People don't know exactly about the couple. They look two of them only in outside. Specially the boy has been waiting all his life to find a love that feels this right. And he say if people only knew how much they love to each other people would be jealous of them. So This shows how much their love is strong!

    I think that this song is about two lovers that get judged a lot for being together. Almost everyone thinks that they are to young to be together. People keep saying that the aren't meant to be but the thing that they all do not see is that the love each other so much and would do anything to stay together despite what everyone else thinks.

    I think its about larry. They write this LOVE song together. How could 2 boys which is 'straight' they said, write a love song together. And listen at 2: 45 or where (i am forget). After zayn sing 'But i beg you if they only knew', there's a voice said 'soon'. My opinion it was Harry's voice. Because his voice is a little rasp

    this song talked about a couple who's deeply in love, but there's a lot of judgement on their relationship like people said that they shouldn't be together but they didn't care about that because they don't know what they've been through, they don't know anything about them though.people only can judge, they don't know the fact.

    I think it is about two people (genders not specified) who want to be together but they always have to hide the fact that they are in a relationship and that if people only knew about them they would be jelouse of them

    it is about a boy and a girl which are too young. They love each other very much more, but the people don't want it, so they are jealous of them.

    You can believe what you like but i believe it is about Larry and how it used to be. When nobody knew about Larry. There is truly nothing wrong with their love. In fact this song is about the love between two people. It's not anyone else's decision who they love. SO IF YOU DON'T HAVE ANYTHING NICE TO SAY ABOUT THEIR LOVE THEN SHUT UP AND LEAVE THEM ALONE!
