One Direction – Drag Me Down lyrics

[Verse 1: Harry]
I've got fire for a heart, I'm not scared of the dark,
You've never seen it look so easy.
I got a river for a soul, and baby you're a boat,
Baby, you're my only reason
.

[Verse 2: Louis]
If I didn't have you there would be nothing left,
The shell of a man who could never be his best.
If I didn't have you, I'd never see the sun,
You taught me how to be someone, yeah
.

[Chorus: Liam]
All my life, you stood by me,
When no one else was ever behind me.
All these lights, they can't blind me,
With your love, nobody can drag me down
.

[Chrous: Niall/ Group]
All my life, you stood by me,
When no one else was ever behind me
.
All these lights, they can't blind me,
With your love, nobody can drag me down
.
Nobody, nobody,
Nobody can drag me down.
Nobody, nobody,
Nobody can drag me down
.

[Verse 3: Niall]
I've got fire for a heart, I'm not scared of the dark,
You've never seen it look so easy.
I got a river for a soul, and baby you're a boat,
Baby you're my only reason.

[Verse 4: Harry]
If I didn't have you there would be nothing left (nothing left),
The shell of a man who could never be his best (be his best).
If I didn't have you I'd never see the sun (see the sun),
You taught me how to be someone, yeah
.

[Chorus: Group]
All my life you stood by me,
When no one else was ever behind me
.
All these lights, they can't blind me,
With your love, nobody can drag me down.
Nobody, nobody,
Nobody can drag me down.
Nobody, nobody,
Nobody can drag me.

[Bridge]
All my life you stood by me,
When no one else was ever behind me
.
All these lights, they can't blind me,
With your love, nobody can drag me down
.

[Outro]
All my life you stood by me,
When no one else was ever behind me.
All these lights, they can't blind me,
With your love, nobody can drag me down!
Nobody, nobody
,
Nobody can drag me down.
Nobody, nobody,
Nobody can drag me.

    I think this song is about them thanking us their fans for bringing them were they are now and not believing all the fake rumors. "All my life you stood by me.
    When no one else was ever behind me" their saying that we were behind them through all the tough times and all those rumors *cough cough daddy situation cough* that are fake. "All these lights, they can't blind me.
    With your love nobody can drag me down" right here they are saying that all these lights as in paps with cameras they can't blind them and cant bring them down as said "drag me down". All in all this song is them thanking their fans for not believing the rumors said and being their for them. (Imma also add that this song isn't even in a album yet but it's slaying!)

    I truly think this is out Zayn. To be honest Z left and I think they are talking about him leaving and it can't drag them down. And it says "all my life you stood by me'" by saying Z never left them at heart and he was always there for them no matter what.

    This song I think that are telling all the directioners that they are very thankful for supporting them and be by their side, that's what they said in the lyrics "nobody can drag me down" means that nobody could do anything to not made their day and made them sad I think. So this is for all the directioners out there that was supporting them all these fantastic years lol.

    I think this song is clearly about a guy who has a lot of confidence built in himself because his girl supports him. And no matter what obstacle comes in his way, his girl is always going to be by his side. No one will stop him from doing what he wants to do or be who he wants to be. His girl is his life saver. He comes out of his shell all because of her.

    I think just all the fans, and each other have helped them to get where they are now. So they're like saying with us and each other nobody can take them from where they are. Just like through everything, breakups, Zayn leaving, all their imperfections, the directioners that have been through it with them all are being like recognized. With the love we give them and they give each other as almost brothers, is enough. So like with us, each other, and all the people that have been there for them, NOBODY can bring them down from where they are. Even when the band like breaks up, they will still have the love and everything they have now.
