We're Taking a Deeper Dive Into the Lyrics of Harry Styles's "Adore You"

Harry Styles's latest song, "Adore You," is out now, and as always, the lyrics are super catchy. What do they actually mean? Unlike some songs, there doesn't seem to be any hidden meaning or secret shade-throwing happening here. It's just a lovely, slightly bittersweet song about love!

A lot of the images Styles uses seem to conjure up the idea of an idealized young love. "Rainbow paradise," "strawberry lipstick state of mind," and "brown skin and lemon over ice" create the image of a carefree romance, maybe a Summer love. "I get so lost inside your eyes," he sings, furthering the idea that this is the intense, swoony early part of discovering a new love.

The lyrics aren't entirely carefree, though: the singer is addressing someone who doesn't return their feelings to the same degree, making it a little more angsty than it might be at first. "You don't have to say you love me," he sings. "You don't have to say you're mine." It's a little bittersweet and even sad, leaning into the idea of love that's unrequited, or at least not returned in equal measure.

You can read the lyrics in full below:

Walk in your rainbow paradise
Strawberry lipstick state of mind
I get so lost inside your eyes
Would you believe it?

You don't have to say you love me
You don't have to say nothing
You don't have to say you're mine

Honey
I'd walk through fire for you
Just let me adore you
Oh honey
I'd walk through fire for you
Just let me adore you
Like it's the only thing I'll ever do
Like it's the only thing I'll ever do

Your wonder, under summer skies
Brown skin and lemon over ice
Would you believe it?

You don't have to say you love me
I just wanna tell you something
Lately you've been on my mind

Honey
I'd walk through fire for you
Just let me adore you
Oh honey
I'd walk through fire for you
Just let me adore you
Like it's the only thing I'll ever do
Like it's the only thing I'll ever do

(It's the only thing I'll ever do)
(It's the only thing I'll ever do)
(It's the only thing I'll ever do)
(It's the only thing I'll ever do)
(It's the only thing I'll ever do)
(It's the only thing I'll ever do)
(It's the only thing I'll ever do)
(It's the only thing I'll ever do)

I'd walk through fire for you
Just let me adore you
Oh honey
I'd walk through fire for you
Just let me adore you
Like it's the only thing I'll ever do

I'd walk through fire for you
Just let me adore you
Oh honey
Oh honey

I'd walk through fire for you
Just let me adore you

Oh honey
Just let me adore you
Like it's the only thing I'll ever do
