8 Letters Lyrics
You know my worst, see me hurt, but you don't judge
That, right there, is the scariest feeling
Opening and closing up again
I've been hurt so I don't trust
Now here we are, staring at the ceiling
I've said those words...

This song is about how the boy is in a beautiful relationship, but he has been hurt in the past ("I've said those words before but it was a lie") and has trust issues ("Why do I pull you close and then ask you for space"). This makes it hard for him to tell her how he feels about her (he loves her) because he is scared that the relationship might fall apart. He doesn't really have a good reason that it could go wrong, so he is frustrated that he can't just tell her that he loves her. ("If all it is is 8 Letters, why is it so hard to say?").

If all it is is 8 letters (I Love You)
Then why is it so hard to say?
(it is so hard to say I love you because he doesn't know how he truly feels and he doesn't want to get hurt again so he tries to distance himself.)

This means I Love You. The guy was hurt before he had this wonderful relationship, so he has trust issues. Even though he loves the girl, he doesn’t want his heart to be broken again, so he’s being cautious.

The eight letters are- I love you - when i first heard the song i counted the letters in I love you.

I think it means Corbyn died because Daniel, Jack, Jonah, and Zach were wearing black and Corbyn was wearing white and was in Clouds. And at the end they were together and corbyn was hard to see.

I'm pretty sure it means "fartface" because it says "if all it is eight letters why is it so hard to say" am the word fart face is eight letters and it is hard to call someone a fart face, right? just imagine going up to someone and saying fart face right in their face, you'd have to think about it before you do say it. plus the boys mentioned the word "fartface" in their genious interview :)

I think this song is about a boy who is new to a relationship and he is afraid of telling a girl he loves her thinking that in return he wont get the same answer.And so the 8 letters are "i love you".

That it’s hard for some one to say I love you and mean it. Especially if they’ve been hurt before after opening up. So they’re afraid of getting hurt as bad as this other time

I think corbyn is dead in the music video so the boys are talking about him.

I have 2 ideas of what 8 letters mean. The first one, the common answer “I love you” the second one however, is “I am sorry”

Why is it so hard for them to say I love you?
