To Be So Lonely
Harry Styles Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Don't blame me for fallin'
I was just a little boy
Don't blame the drunk caller
Wasn't ready for it all
You can't blame me, darling
Not even a little bit
I was away
And I'm just an arrogant son of a bitch
Who can't admit when he's sorry

Don't call me "baby" again
You got your reasons
I know that you're tryna be friends
I know you mean it
But don't call me "baby" again
It's hard for me to go home
Be so lonely

I just hope you see me
In a little better light
Do you think it's easy
Being of the jealous kind?
'Cause I miss the shape of your lips
Your wit
It's just a trick
And this is it, so I'm sorry

Don't call me "baby" again
You got your reasons
I know that you're tryna be friends
I know you mean it
But don't call me "baby" again
It's hard for me to go home
Be so lonely
To be so lonely
To be so
To be so lonely
To be so lonely
To be so
To be so lonely

And I'm just an arrogant son of a bitch
Who can't admit when he's sorry

Don't call me "baby" again
You got your reasons
I know that you're tryna be friends
I know you mean it
But don't call me "baby" again
It's hard for me to go home
And be so lonely
To be so lonely
To be so
To be so lonely
To be so lonely




To be so
To be so lonely

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Harry Styles’s song To Be So Lonely depicts a story of a love relationship that has come to an end, where the singer is having a hard time dealing with the loneliness that comes after the separation. The song goes on to address the singer’s inability to take responsibility for his actions that led to the breakup. He blames it on being young and arrogant and refusing to admit when he’s wrong. However, he still longs for his ex-lover’s affection and cannot help but feel envious of the attention she gives to other people. He wishes that she would see him in a better light, and perhaps he could still have a chance with her, but he also understands that the damage has been done and the two are better off being friends for now. The song concludes with the recurring phrase “To be so lonely,” which emphasizes the pain that the singer is experiencing.


The somber tone of the song is highlighted by Harry Styles’s high-pitched, echoey vocals, which evoke a sense of sadness and longing. The song’s slow tempo, coupled with the use of acoustic guitar, drum machine, and synth, creates a dreamy ambiance that complements the melancholic lyrics. Overall, the lyrics and musical arrangement come together to deliver a heartfelt and relatable tune that captures the pain of separation and loneliness.

[Verse 1]
Don't blame me for falling
I was just a little boy
Don’t blame the drunk caller
Wasn't ready for it all

[Pre-Chorus]
You can't blame me, darling
Not even a little bit, I was away
And I’m just an arrogant son of a bitch
Who can't admit when he's sorry

[Chorus]
Don't call me "baby" again, you got your reasons
I know that you're tryna be friends, I know you mean it
Don't call me "baby" again, it's hard for me to go home
Be so lonely

[Verse 2]
I just hope you see me in a little better light
Do you think it's easy being of the jealous kind?
’Cause I miss the shape of your lips
You’ll win, it's just a trick
And this is it, so I’m sorry

“ he’s broken , i hope one day you’ll open I know that you’re scared because I’m so open “ in Golden
I could go on for Hours and Hours but it hurts af
