Daylight
Harry Styles Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I'm on the roof
You're in your airplane seat
I was nose bleedin'
Lookin' for life out there
Readin' your horoscope
You were just doing cocaine
In my kitchen, you never listen
I hope you're missin' me by now

If I was a bluebird
I would fly to ya
You'd be the spoon
Dip you in honey so I could be stickin' to you

Daylight, you got me cursin' the daylight (ooh)
Daylight, you got me cursin' the daylight (ooh)
Daylight, you got me callin' at all times (ooh)
Ain't gonna sleep 'til the daylight (ooh)

Out of New York
I'm on the comedown speed
We're on bicycles
Sayin' there's life out there
You got the antidote
I'll take one to go, go, please
Get the picture, cut out my middle
You ain't got time for me right now

If I was a bluebird
I would fly to ya
You'd be the spoon
Dip you in honey so I could be stickin' to you

(Ooh)
(Ooh)
Daylight, you got me callin' at all times (ooh)
Ain't gonna sleep 'til the daylight (ooh)

Daylight, you got me cursin' the daylight (ooh)
Daylight, you got me cursin' the daylight (ooh)
Daylight, you got me callin' at all times (ooh)
Ain't gonna sleep 'til the daylight (ooh)

If I was a bluebird
I would fly to ya




You'd be the spoon
Dip you in honey so I could be stickin' to you

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of "Daylight" by Harry Styles can be interpreted as a yearning for connection with someone who is physically absent. The first verse finds the singer on the roof, while the other person is in an airplane, representing not only distance but possibly also a class difference. The singer indicates they were looking for “life out there,” while the other person was “just doing cocaine,” further highlighting a sense of existential crisis within the singer.


The chorus repeats the phrase "Daylight, you got me cursin' the daylight," indicating a sense of frustration that the daylight is separating them from the other person. The line, "Ain't gonna sleep 'til the daylight" suggests the singer is struggling to cope with their own loneliness and longing for the other person.


The second verse suggests that the singer and the other person are in different places, with the singer on a comedown speed in New York City and the other person on bicycles claiming that there is “life out there.” The other person has "the antidote," suggesting they have the remedy for the singer’s emotional pain, but they are too busy for the singer right now.


Overall, the song is about the longing for connection with someone who is physically and/or emotionally distant. The singer is struggling to cope with their own loneliness and is eager to be with the other person who they believe has the solution to their problems.

You'd be the spoon
Dip you in honey so I could be sticking to you
