Lights Up
Harry Styles Lyrics


What do you mean?
I'm sorry by the way
Never coming back down
Can't you see?
I could, but wouldn't stay
Wouldn't put it like that
What do you mean?
I'm sorry by the way
Never coming around
Be so sweet if things just stayed the same
(La-da-da-da-da)

All the lights couldn't put out the dark
Runnin' through my heart
Lights up and they know who you are
Know who you are
Do you know who you are?

(Shine) step into the light
(Shine) so bright sometimes
(Shine) I'm not ever going back
(Shine) step into the light
(Shine) so bright sometimes
(Shine) I'm not ever going back
(Shine) step into the light
(Shine) so bright sometimes
(Shine) I'm not ever (ooh)

What do you mean?
I'm sorry by the way
Never going back now
Be so sweet if things just stayed the same
(La-da-da-da-da)

(La-da-da-da-da)
(La-da-da-da-da) (oh)
(La-da-da-da-da) (oh)
(La-da-da-da-da) (oh)

All the lights couldn't put out the dark
Runnin' through my heart
Lights up and they know who you are
Know who you are
Do you know who you are?

Okay I feel like sharing this so... Here is my lyric analysis (sorry it's a little long but it's worth reading trust me)

To me this song feels like it's referencing him accepting himself/coming out. My interpretation is that the song tells the story of him accepting himself by showing a conversation between closeted him and present him, as follows.

Closeted: What do you mean I'm sorry by the way.
Out: Never coming back down
Closeted: Can't you see I would but couldn't stay
(He wants to come out but feels like he would have to closet himself again after awhile)
Out: Wouldn't put it like that
(Saying he won't have to do that)
Closeted: What do you mean I'm sorry by the way,
I'm never coming around,
It'd be so sweet if things just stayed the same.
(Wishes that if he came out he wouldn't lose friends/family)

(Throughout this whole song imagine the "light" representing being out/accepting himself and the "dark" being him being closeted)

All the lights couldn't put out the dark,
(Coming out and being accepted by friends/family doesn't do anything if you don't accept yourself)
running through my heart,
Lights up and they know who you are,
Know who you are,
(When you come out [ "lights up"] everyone knows who you truly are)
Out to Closeted: Do you know who you are?
[The chorus represents him coming out]
Shine
Step into the light
(Coming out)
It's so bright sometimes
I'm not ever going back
(Now that he's out he's never going back to where he was)
Shine
Step into the light
It's so bright sometimes
I'm not ever going back x2

What do you mean
I'm sorry by the way
I'm never going back now
It'd be so sweet if things just stayed the same

All the lights couldn't put out the dark
Running through my heart
Lights up and they know who you are
Know who you are
So you know who you are?

Additional note is I feel like the scream right before the chorus is meant to be his screams of frustration of trying to figure out who he is, and towards the end during the choir section those screams of frustration turn into screams of happiness since he finally figured out who he is. I also think that this song is meant to loop since it ends with him asking "do you know who you are" and begins with "what do you mean?"

let me know what you think. Again this is just my interpretation but...



Sanvi

niall : we'll be alright ( still )
louis : it's gonna be alright( we made it )
harry : we'll be alright( fine line )

liam : But maybe it's alright ( alright now )
zayn : It's alright ( to begin again )






one d is connected even tough it's separated
