Hopelessly Devoted To You
Harry Styles Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Guess mine is not the first heart broken
My eyes are not the first to cry
I'm not the first to know
There's just no getting over you
You know, I'm just a fool who's willing
To sit around and wait for you
But baby, can't you see
There's nothing else for me to do?
I'm hopelessly devoted to you

But now there's nowhere to hide
Since you pushed my love aside
I'm out of my head hopelessly devoted to you
Hopelessly devoted to you
Hopelеssly devoted to you

My head is saying, "Fool, forgеt him"
My heart is saying, "Don't let go
Hold on 'til the end"
And that's what I intend to do
I'm hopelessly devoted to

But now there's nowhere to hide
Since you pushed my love aside
I'm out of my head hopelessly devoted to you




Hopelessly devoted to you
Hopelessly devoted to you

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Harry Styles's "Hopelessly Devoted To You" convey a profound sense of heartbreak and longing. The singer opens by acknowledging that they are not the only one who has experienced heartbreak, tears, and the realization that they cannot move on from their former love. They express a willingness to wait and be foolishly devoted to this person, even though it seems futile. This demonstrates the deep emotional attachment and sense of helplessness that comes with desperately holding on to a lost love.


As the song progresses, the singer reveals that there is now no escape from the pain of rejection, as their love interest has seemingly cast aside their feelings. The singer finds themselves consumed by thoughts of this person, unable to focus or think clearly due to their overwhelming devotion. This repetition of being "hopelessly devoted" emphasizes the intensity of their emotions and the idea that they are fully committed to this person, despite the potentially hopeless circumstances.


The internal conflict between the singer's head and heart is addressed in the bridge of the song. The rational mind tells them to move on and forget, while the heart urges them to hold on and not let go, promising to endure until the end. This inner struggle highlights the internal turmoil and confusion that often accompanies a deep emotional attachment, where reason and emotion are in direct conflict.


The chorus repeats the sentiment of being "hopelessly devoted" to this person, reinforcing the idea that the singer is fully invested in their love and willing to endure the pain and uncertainty that comes with it. The repeated refrain of being out of their head further emphasizes the all-encompassing nature of their feelings. Overall, the lyrics paint a poignant picture of unrequited love, longing, and the internal battle between holding on and letting go.

Guess mine is not the first heart broken
My eyes are not the first to cry
I'm not the first to know
There's just no getting over you

I know I'm just a fool who's willing
To sit around and wait for you
But baby, can't you see there's nothing else for me to do?

But now there's nowhere to hide
Since you pushed my love aside

Since you pushed my love aside
