We're not, no we're not friends, nor have we ever been
We just try to keep those secrets in our lives
And if they find out, will it all go wrong?
I never know, no one wants it to

So I could take the back road
But your eyes'll lead me straight back home
And if you know me like I know you
You should love me, you should know

Friends just sleep in another bed
And friends don't treat me like you do
Well I know that there's a limit to everything
But my friends won't love me like you
No, my friends won't love me like you

We're not friends, we could be anything
If we tried to keep those secrets safe
No one will find out if it all went wrong
They'll never know what we've been through

So I could take the back road
But your eyes'll lead me straight back home
And if you know me like I know you
You should love me, you should know

Friends just sleep in another bed
And friends don't treat me like you do
Well I know that there's a limit to everything
But my friends won't love me like you
No, my friends won't love me like you

But then again, if we're not friends
Someone else might love you too
And then again, if we're not friends
There'd be nothing I could do, and that's why

Friends should sleep in other beds
And friends should kiss me like you do
And I know that there's a limit to everything
But my friends won't love me like you
No, my friends won't love me like you
Oh, my friends will never love me like you

    In my heart I feel as though this could be about friends named Harry & Louis. There's always been a conspiracy about these two being in a relationship I've never really understood maybe since last year. At first I thought this all was just a little fun doing of shipping but then it became much more than that. Most of their fans believed in this relationship more than I think they might have. From the beginning these boys were never friends they were much more than that. From the adoring glances to the secret touches it was beautiful relationship unraveling in front of our eyes. I think these boys have had hard times in their relationship as it says in the 4th stanza they've been through things we may never know as its been kept a secret. In the 2nd to last stanza it says well someone else might love you most of the Larry shippers think Eleanor from what I see I think Nick Grimshaw and Stan. Nick has always hated Louis and that hates been mutual from what I can tell from the twitter fights and sarcastic comments. I think harry had a thing for nick and that was hard time for Louis and harry. As for Stan, he's a good friend of Louis and I think one time Louis and Stan had a one time thing unlike harry and nick. If you ever get the chance just watch the love triangle about Larry on YouTube.
