The Way You Look Tonight
Harry Styles Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

There was a time
I was everything and nothing all in one
When you found me
I was feeling like a cloud across the sun

I need to tell you
How you light up every second of the day
But in the moonlight
You just shine like a beacon on the bay

And I can't explain
But it's something about the way you look tonight
Takes my breath away
It's that feeling I get about you, deep inside
And I can't describe
But it's something about the way you look tonight
Takes my breath away




The way you look tonight
The way you look tonight

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Harry Styles's song The Way You Look Tonight express a deep admiration and attraction towards a person based on their physical appearance. The opening line sets the tone for the rest of the song, implying that the singer's identity was unstable before they met the person they are singing to. The next line, "When you found me, I was feeling like a cloud across the sun," suggests that the singer was lost and couldn't find their place, but they found hope when they met the person they are addressing.


The chorus repeats the theme of the song, how the person's appearance causes a strong emotional reaction in the singer, "And I can't explain, but it's something about the way you look tonight, takes my breath away. It's that feeling I get about you, deep inside." This suggests that the singer is not just attracted to the person's physical appearance but also their internal qualities. Finally, the repeating line "The way you look tonight" emphasizes that appearance is the main driving force behind their attraction.


Line by Line Meaning

There was a time
At a point in time, there existed a period


I was everything and nothing all in one
At that period, I had mixed emotions, both positive and negative


When you found me
At that moment, a significant person discovered me


I was feeling like a cloud across the sun
I was ridden with sadness and anxiety, similar to how a cloud blocks the sun and causes gloominess


I need to tell you
There's an urge within me to express how I feel


How you light up every second of the day
You have a way of bringing brightness and happiness continuously


But in the moonlight
However, in the dimmer light of the moon


You just shine like a beacon on the bay
You dazzle and stand out like a guiding light on the sea


And I can't explain
I'm unable to express in words


But it's something about the way you look tonight
There's an inexplicable quality to your appearance tonight


Takes my breath away
You leave me speechless with your beauty and charm


It's that feeling I get about you, deep inside
It's a profound sensation I experience within me towards you


And I can't describe
I still can't express it properly


The way you look tonight
You appear exceptionally stunning this evening


The way you look tonight
I cannot get enough of your gorgeous appearance tonight
