Harry Styles Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I got a girl crush i hate to admit it, but
I got a heart rush it ain't slowing down
I got it real bad want everything she has
That smile and that midnight laugh
She's givin' you now

I wanna taste her lips
Yeah, 'cause they taste like you
I wanna drown myself
In a bottle of her perfume
I want her long blonde hair
I want her magic touch
Yeah, 'cause maybe then
You'd want me just as much
And I've got a girl crush
I've got a girl crush

I don't get no sleep i don't get no peace
Thinking about her under your bed sheets
The way that she's whisperin'
The way that she's pullin' you in
Lord knows I've tried
I can't get her off my mind

I wanna taste her lips
Yeah, 'cause they taste like you
I wanna drown myself
In a bottle of her perfume
I want her long blonde hair
I want her magic touch
Yeah, 'cause maybe then
You'd want me just as much




And I've got a girl crush
Oh, and I got a girl crush

Lyrics: (Harry styles version)
I got a girl crush
Hate to admit it but
I got a heart rush
It ain’t slowing down
I got it real bad
Want everything she has
That smile and that midnight laugh
She’s giving you now

I want to taste her lips
Yeah, ‘cause they taste like you
I want to drown myself
In a bottle of her perfume
I want her long blonde hair
I want her magic touch
Yeah ‘cause maybe then
You’d want me just as much
And I’ve got a girl crush

Oh I got a girl crush

I don’t get no sleep
I don’t get no peace
Thinking about her
Under your bedsheets

The way that she’s whispering
The way she’s pulling you in
Lord knows I tried
I can’t get her off my mind

I want to taste her lips
Yeah, 'cause they taste like you
I want to drown myself
In a bottle of her perfume

I want her long blonde hair
I want her magic touch
Yeah, 'cause maybe then
You'd want me just as much
I've got a girl crush

all-time favorite cover harry has ever performed. his voice. the hair. his suit. the background singers. the solo guitarist. everything.

@jbsh724

How i wish i was there🥺

@morechatter6416

It’s weird I’ve always thought this was one of his songs!!

@explicitmemory4284

@@morechatter6416 that's because he sings it with so much emotion and conviction...this is more than just a cover for him, it has huge sentimental value for him....breaks my heart every single time 😔 but it's gorgeous

@myb1d83

I really feel he was feeling something else here. The emotions are all over the place. He didn't even smile once. I agree with you one of his best covers. The performance actually reminds me of 'falling' from the brits awards, he just sang it with so much passion <3

@taliamiller6168

myb1D the amount of passion he gives is so amazing it’s what makes him so great to watch and listen to
