She
Harry Styles Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Nine in the morning
The man drops his kids off at school
And he's thinking of you
Like all of us do
Sends his assistant for coffee in the afternoon
Around 1:32
Like he knows what to do
She (she)
She lives in daydreams with me (she)
She's the first one that I see
And I don't know why
I don't know who she is (she, she)

He takes a boat out
Imagines just sailing away (away, away)
And not telling his mates (not telling his mates)
He wouldn't know what to say (wouldn't know what to say, to say)

She (she)
She lives in daydreams with me (she)
She's the first one that I see
And I don't know why
I don't know who she is (she)

She (she)
She's the first one that I see (she)
She lives in daydreams with me
And I don't know why
I don't know where she is (she, she)

Lives for the memory
A woman who's just in his head (just in his head)
And she sleeps in his bed (his bed)
While he plays pretend (pretend)
So pretend (pretend)

She (she)
She lives in daydreams with me (she)
She's the first one that I see
And I don't know why
I don't know who she is (she, she)

She (she)
She's the first one that I see (she)
She lives in daydreams with me




And I don't know why
I don't know where she is (she, she)

Overall Meaning

The song "She" by Harry Styles appears to be about a man who has a secret crush on a woman who he can only see in his daydreams. The verses paint a picture of an ordinary man going about his day, dropping his kids off at school and sending his assistant for coffee. However, his mind keeps drifting off to this mysterious woman who he cannot identify but is clearly infatuated with. The chorus repeats the line "She lives in daydreams with me" which implies that this woman is not real, but exists only in his fantasies. The man seems to be living a double life, pretending to be content with his mundane routine while secretly dreaming about this woman.


The second verse takes us even deeper into the man's imagination. He imagines sailing away on a boat, leaving his normal life behind, and not even telling his friends about it. He acknowledges that he wouldn't know what to say to them, perhaps suggesting that he feels isolated in his fantasies. The line "She's the first one that I see" is repeated, emphasizing her importance in his thoughts. In the bridge, the song takes a darker turn as it becomes clear that this woman is not real. The man is living in a world of make-believe, pretending that she is lying beside him in bed. The line "Lives for the memory, a woman who's just in his head" confirms this.


Overall, "She" is a melancholic and somewhat wistful song about unrequited desire. The verses depict a man going through the motions of everyday life, while his mind is consumed by a fantasy that he cannot let go of. The chorus repeats the line "And I don't know why, I don't know who she is" which suggests that the man is aware of the impossibility of his situation but cannot help but dwell on his daydreams.

[Verse 1]
Nine in the morning, a man drops his kids off at school
And he's thinking of you, like all of us do
Sends his assistant for coffee in the afternoon
Around 1:32, like he knows what to do

[Chorus]
She (She), she lives in daydreams with me (She)
She's the first one that I see, and I don't know why
I don't know who she is (She, she)

[Verse 2]
He takes a boat out, imagines just sailing away (Away, away)
And not telling his mates (Not telling his mates)
Wouldn't know what to say (Wouldn't know what to say, to say)

[Chorus]
She (She), she lives in daydreams with me (She)
She's the first one that I see, and I don't know why
I don't know who she is (She)
She (She), she's the first one that I see (She)
She lives in daydreams with me, and I don't know why
I don't know where she is (She, she)

[Bridge]
Lives for the memory
A woman who's just in his head (Just in his head)
And she sleeps in his bed (His bed)
While he plays pretend (Pretend)
So pretend (Pretend)
