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.

    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.

    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 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.

    Uhm. So, this song better not be about a girl because it wouldn't make sense, for one. This song is either talking about their families (moms in particular) or fans even from hometowns, which are also close friends and family. None of us were there all their lives-only family and close friends. The chorus alone contradicts any idea that is about a girl. "All my life you stood by me when no one else was EVER behind me" that is directed towards the people who were there before they became who they are. "If I didn't have you is never see the sun" if you didn't have a mom, you wouldn't be born, this never seeing the sun. "You taught me how to be someone" who teaches us how to be someone? Our parents. We learn from them from the day we come into this earth. I feel like "babe" is a filler word to romanticize the song for fans. Because babe having any deep meaning in this song makes the thing not make sense. But all the lyrics make sense when thinking of close friends and family who were there since before 1D became 1D. "All these lights, they won't blind me" they are dating that they won't allow their fame to cause them to forget their roots.

    I think this song is about the boys that there is no one in the world who can drag them down but they also say that the glitters of fame will never change them no matter how much successful they become. They also say in this song their love for directioners as they were by their side when no one else was and that the fans taught them to be someone they had never thought. And that would had never achieved what they have without the fans.

    Apart from this I just love this song, it's lyrics and their singing. I hope that this song and its fore coming video becomes their best ever.

    Drag me Down was written as a thank you to their families History was for the fans.

    I'm not scared of the dark - you never made it look so easy = the mums made motherhood look easy.
    If I didn't have you there would be nothing left - you taught me to be someone = their families have always been there for them.
    All my life you stood by me. With your love, no body can drag me down. - The rest of the song again is a thank you to their families. Who gave them love unconditionally. Kept them grounded and was always there for them.

    I think that this song means that as they were growing up, and we were all watching them on the X-factor and stuff, all their fans, like me, always stood by them. And no matter what anyone else though about us, we stayed true to them and never stopped loving them. They're staying that for as long as their fans, us, stand by them, they'll try to always be there for us. When bad things happened to them, we stood by them and felt their pain like it was our own. Us directioners have stuck with them through it all and as long as we never leave them, they will try and never leave us. They'll try and be there for us because we have helped them be where they are now. We have as much credit as they do for them to be where they stand now.

    This song is about the fans and how we have supported them since the beginning. Nothing can make them feel bad as long as we are around them. The cameras don't bother them because the fans are supporting them. This is One Direction thanking the fans for standing by them all the way from the X-factor till today.

    I think it not only talks about their loyal fans maybe it also talks about how grateful they are for the people who stay for them through thick and thin and that includes their family. Who helped them to stay grounded and always been there for them and accept and love them for who they are.

    You guys have basically said the meaning. But I also think that it is about Zayn. They released this song after he left and the lyrics "all my life you stood by me" Zayn was always there for them. I definitely think it is also about the fans I think this is one of their best songs! I hope they get back together again! And I wish that Zayn could come back.

    The song Drag me down I think it is special because it sounds like it is about girls and how nothing can get between them and that they are very good supportive fans of One Direction and Niall is my favourite and so is Harry, Liam, Louis, and Zayn but it should be better with Zayn because they need him there he has been with One Direction for quite sometime and our fans want him back in One Direction.

    I think that the song is a Larry song because I heard that Louis wrote the song, and when it says "all these lights they cant blind me" it's talking about how the two are learning to stay strong while having to hide, because before in the beginning of Larry, Harry wrote a song Don't let me go and one of the lines says "and all of a sudden these lights are blinding me", meaning everything had changed so much in his life and with Louis now he had to get used to hiding. But now in the new song it says that the lights don't bind them anymore, meaning they learned how to live with it, which is also why it says "you've never seen it look so easy". Also it says "baby your my boat" and Harry's tattoo is a boat (supposedly a Larry tattoo to represent Louis). Also the lines "I've got a fire for a heart" is like "we're on fire" form the song Happily (an other rumored Larry song the harry wrote most of).
