Ultralight Beam
Harry Styles Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴

We're on that ultralight beam
That ultralight beam this is everything
We're on that ultralight beam
Ultralight beam
This is everything, it's everything

I'm tryna keep my faith
But I'm looking for more
It's holy war, it's holy war
Tryna keep my faith but I'm looking for more
It's holy war, it's holy war

We're on that ultralight
Beam, ultralight beam, baby
This is everything
We're on that ultralight beam
Ultralight beam it's everything

Foot on the devil and I’m
Moving my family to Zambia
My daughter looks just like Sia
You can't see her
I'm just having fun with this
Know I've feeling so lost
Laugh in my head I bet that my ex
Looking back like a pillar of salt
And Now we're on that ultralight beam
Ultralight beam baby it's everything
O-o-o oh we're on that ultralight beam
Ultralight beam it's everything
I'm just having fun with this
Know I've been feeling so lost
Laugh in my head I bet that my ex
Looking back like a pillar of salt




And now we're on that ultralight beam
Ultralight beam baby it's everything

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Harry Styles's song "Ultralight Beam" reflect a deep sense of spirituality and inner struggle. The repeated mention of being on an "ultralight beam" can be interpreted as being in a state of transcendence or spiritual enlightenment. This imagery suggests a feeling of weightlessness and purity, as if the singer has risen above earthly concerns and entered a higher realm of consciousness. The refrain "This is everything, it's everything" emphasizes the importance and completeness of this experience, indicating that it is a profound moment of clarity and connection with something greater than oneself.


The lyrics also touch on themes of faith and doubt, as the singer expresses a desire to keep their faith but admits to feeling lost and searching for more. The reference to a "holy war" can be seen as an internal struggle between belief and uncertainty, a spiritual conflict that is deeply personal and introspective. This tension between faith and doubt adds depth to the song's message and highlights the complexity of the human experience.


In the verse where the singer mentions moving their family to Zambia and compares their daughter to singer Sia, there is a sense of whimsy and surrealism. The line "Foot on the devil" suggests a defiance against evil or negative forces, while the reference to Sia, known for her enigmatic persona and distinctive appearance, adds a playful element to the narrative. This juxtaposition of serious themes with more lighthearted imagery creates a contrast that further enriches the song's meaning.


Overall, "Ultralight Beam" conveys a sense of searching for meaning and purpose amidst moments of confusion and doubt. The repeated refrain of being on that ultralight beam underscores the idea of transcending earthly struggles and tapping into a higher consciousness. Through its blend of spirituality, introspection, and surreal imagery, the song invites listeners to reflect on their own beliefs and inner conflicts, ultimately offering a message of hope and possibility in the face of uncertainty.

[Refrain]
I'm tryna keep my faith
But I'm looking for more
It's holy war, it's holy war
Tryna keep my faith
But I'm looking for more
It's holy war, it's holy war

[Chorus]
We're on that ultralight beam, ultralight beam, baby
This is everything
We're on that ultralight beam, ultralight beam
It's everything

[Verse]
Foot on the devil and I’m moving my family to Zambia
My daughter looks just like Sia, you can't see her
I'm just having fun with this
Know I've feeling so lost
Laugh in my head I bet that my ex looking back like a pillar of salt
And Now we're on that ultralight beam, ultralight beam baby
It's everything
Ooooh
We're on that ultralight beam, ultralight beam
It's everything
I'm just having fun with this, know I've been feeling so lost
Laugh in my head I bet that my ex looking back like a pillar of salt
And now we're on that ultralight beam, ultralight beam baby
It's everything

Taking a Kanye West song and making it sound like a Pink Floyd song is nothing but pure genuine honest talent!!

Rusty Hobbs

I felt the same way, very Pink Floyd flow to it. Amazing job.

TONYA P JACKSON

Don't be ridiculous. This sounds NOTHING like Floyd!

Pablo V.

Yeaaaaaah thats why i liked this song the first time i heard from him

Richard j.

Pink floyd??? 🤔🤔

Elif M.Ç

I love both pink floyd and harry as a solo artist but this is nothing like pink floyd. Pf music was/is whole another genre called progressive rock. This is more like indie / alternative rock maybe, if it is a must to put in a genre.
