Sign Of The Times
Harry Styles Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Just stop your crying
It's a sign of the times
Welcome to the final show
Hope you're wearing your best clothes
You can't bribe the door on your way to the sky
You look pretty good down here
But you ain't really good
If we never learn, we been here before
Why are we always stuck and running from
The bullets?
The bullets
We never learn, we been here before
Why are we always stuck and running from
The bullets?
The bullets

Just stop your crying
It's a sign of the times
We gotta get away from here
We gotta get away from here
Just stop your crying
It'll be alright
They told me that the end is near
We gotta get away from here

Just stop your crying
Have the time of your life
Breaking through the atmosphere
And things are pretty good from here
Remember everything will be alright
We can meet again somewhere
Somewhere far away from here

We never learn, we been here before
Why are we always stuck and running from
The bullets?
The bullets
We never learn, we been here before
Why are we always stuck and running from
The bullets?
The bullets

Just stop your crying
It's a sign of the times
We gotta get away from here
We gotta get away from here
Stop your crying
Baby, it'll be alright
They told me that the end is near
We gotta get away from here

We never learn, we been here before
Why are we always stuck and running from
The bullets?
The bullets
We never learn, we been here before
Why are we always stuck and running from
The bullets?
The bullets

We don't talk enough
We should open up
Before it's all too much
Will we ever learn?
We've been here before
It's just what we know

Stop your crying, baby
It's a sign of the times
We gotta get away
We got to get away
We got to get away
We got to get away
We got to get away
We got to, we got to, away




We got to, we got to, away
We got to, we got to, away

Overall Meaning

The opening line of Harry Styles's "Sign of the Times", "Just stop your crying, it's a sign of the times" has resonated with millions since it was released in April 2017. The song opens with a powerful piano melody that continues throughout the song. Styles sings about hope, the end of the world, and love. One interpretation of the song is that it is a commentary on the state of the world today. Styles sings about how humanity has been popping up with the same problems over and over again- we never learn from our mistakes. The line "If we never learn, we've been here before" speaks to this. It could be that the bullets he references in the chorus allude to the constant violence around the world as people keep fighting and killing for the same reasons. He is urging listeners to stop crying, to have hope that things will improve, and to find ways to move on and escape the current state of things. He urges people to leave the violence that envelops them behind and to look forward to better days.


Styles also seems to address his listeners personally in the chorus, asking them to move on and to halt their crying: "Just stop your crying, baby/ It's a sign of the times/ We gotta get away/ We got to get away/ We got to get away/ We got to get away/ We got to get away/ We got to, we got to, away". He encourages people to have the time of their lives and to be happy. Perhaps the message is, no matter how bleak things can look, take life as it comes and enjoy it while it lasts. There is always a brighter day waiting at the horizon.


In conclusion, "Sign of the Times" by Harry Styles is a song about hope, loss, and finding a way to move on from the atrocities of the world. He urges people to leave behind the violence that engulfs the world and to have hope that better days are ahead. The song's powerful piano melody and soaring vocals speak to the human condition and the resilience of the human spirit.


Line by Line Meaning

Just stop your crying
Stop feeling sorry for yourself


It's a sign of the times
It’s indicative of current events and issues


Welcome to the final show
The end is near


Hope you're wearing your best clothes
Make it count, because what you wear can’t save you


You can't bribe the door on your way to the sky
Money and power mean nothing when facing death


You look pretty good down here
The world may be a mess, but you’re making it work


But you ain't really good
Beneath the surface, everything is falling apart


If we never learn, we been here before
History repeats itself if we don’t learn from it


Why are we always stuck and running from the bullets?
Why do we constantly find ourselves in danger and afraid?


The bullets?
A metaphor for the chaos and violence in the world


Just stop your crying
Stop being paralyzed by fear and sadness


We gotta get away from here
We need to escape this troubled world


It'll be alright
Everything is going to turn out okay


They told me that the end is near
The signs are all around us


Have the time of your life
Enjoy the present moment


Breaking through the atmosphere
Breaking free from the constraints of the mundane world


And things are pretty good from here
From a distance, the world can seem fine


Remember everything will be alright
Take comfort in the hope that everything will turn out okay


We can meet again somewhere
In some other place, at some other time


Somewhere far away from here
Far removed from the problems of this world


We don't talk enough
Communication is lacking


We should open up
We need to share our thoughts and feelings


Before it's all too much
Before we’re overwhelmed


Will we ever learn?
Will we ever change our ways?


Stop your crying, baby
Stop being so sad and helpless


We got to get away
We need to escape this troubled world

When things were at their very worst:
2 Suns, Cross in the sky, 2 comets will collide = don`t be afraid – repent, accept Lord`s Hand of Mercy.
Scientists will say it was a global illusion.
Beaware – Jesus will never walk in flesh again.
After WW3 – rise of the “ man of peace“ from the East = Antichrist – the most powerful, popular, charismatic and influential leader of all time. Many miracles will be attributed to him. He will imitate Jesus in every conceivable way.
Don`t trust „pope“ Francis = the False Prophet
- will seem to rise from the dead
- will unite all Christian Churches and all Religions as one.
One World Religion = the seat of the Antichrist.
Benedict XVI is the last true pope - will be accused of a crime of which he is totally innocent.
