Diana

The front pages are your pictures
They make you look so smart
How could someone not miss you at all? (Oh-ah-oh)

I never would mistreat ya
I'm not a criminal
I speak a different language but I still hear your call

Diana, let me be the one to
Light a fire inside those eyes
You've been lonely, you don't even know me
But I can feel you crying
Diana, let me be the one to
Lift your heart up and save your life
I don't think you even realize
Baby you'll be saving mine

Diana, it's only been four months but
You've fallen down so far
How could someone mislead you at all? (Oh ah oh)

I wanna reach out for you
I wanna break these walls
I speak a different language but I still hear you call

Diana, let me be the one to
Light a fire inside those eyes
You've been lonely, you don't even know me
But I can feel you crying
Diana, let me be the one to
Lift your heart up and save your life
I don't think you even realize
Baby you'll be saving mine

We all need something
This can't be over now
If I could hold ya
Swear I'd never put you down

Diana, let me be the one to
Light a fire inside those eyes
You've been lonely, you don't even know me
But I can feel you crying
Diana, let me be the one to
Lift your heart up and save your life
I don't think you even realize
Baby you'll be saving mine

(Oh ah oh) Diana
(Oh ah oh oh oh oh oh oh) Diana, baby you'd be saving mine
(Oh ah oh) Diana
(Oh ah oh oh oh oh oh oh) Diana, baby you'd be saving mine

    General CommentWhat gave me chills is that I read a quote online by Harry and it says "a fan came up to Harry and said 'you saved my life.' He said 'I'm glad!' Then he saw the scars on her wrists. He traced his fingers and said 'you know what babe?' She said 'what?' And he responded with 'you saved mine.'"
    Isaw the quote before I even heard the song, but when I heard the song for the first time,mi broke out crying. That's just so amazing that they would writing a song about this. 1D for life!! Thank you Harry!!❤️

    My InterpretationI love this song it reminds me of someone

    But I think this song is about a girl (Diana) who is depressed and could also self harm herself and this guys meets her and falls in love with her and he wants to save her from dangerous path that could lead to suicide and wants her to know she is also saving his life

    General CommentI think it's about a guy and girl finding each other at the right moment, either as a friendship or relationship. Also I think that the "I speak a different language" allows this song to be about anybody, no matter the culture, even though they use a specific name.

    My InterpretationTo me, Diana is song about a girl who struggles with depression, self-harm, eating disorders, etc. And that someone cares about that girl, and the girl may not know it, but she has really been helping that someone else.

    General CommentBeautiful song, made me cry when I first heard it because the meaning was so obvious to me.

    TRIGGER WARNING:
    Mentions of suicide, self harm, depression, and abuse.

    The front pages of your pictures,
    They make you look so small,
    How could someone not miss you at all?
    (Maybe referring to Twitter icons(wild guess idk please don't laugh lmao), they feel that their existence is too simplified through these pictures because they know there is a complex life behind those pictures of themselves and they wish they could know all of their fans beyond these pictures. Despite what the assumedly suicidal fan thinks, people WILL miss them if they killed themselves)

    I never would mistreat ya,
    Oh I'm not a criminal
    (Perhaps they're addressing their fans in this lyric who are abused by those who surround them and they want these fans to know that there are people out there who love and care about them)

    I speak a different language but I still hear your call.
    (These fans and the boys may not speak the same language but that doesn't mean the fans' cries for help are any less valid)

    Diana,
    Let me be the one to light a fire inside those eyes,
    (Let me help you feel alive and happy)

    You've been lonely,
    You don't even know me,
    But I can feel you crying,
    (The fans have been lonely and they seek comfort in the boys. Despite the fans not knowing the boys personally, the boys can still feel their pain)

    Diana,
    Let me be the one to lift your heart up and save your life,
    (Let me help you make it through this, don't hurt yourself)

    I don't think you even realize baby you'd be saving mine.
    (The fans don't realize it but while the boys are saving their lives, they are simultaneously saving the boys' lives)

    It's only been four months but
    You've fallen down so far.
    (Idk I think they're talking about how bad everything can go for people in such a small amount of time)

    How could someone mislead you at all?
    (Why would anyone want to hurt these fans?)

    I wanna reach out for you,
    I wanna break these walls,
    I speak a different language but I still hear you call.
    (They wish they could just get to know every one of their fans on a personal level to comfort them)

    We all need something,
    This can't be over now,
    (This is mutualistic relationship, we both need each other so please don't leave me)

    If I could hold you,
    Swear I'd never put you down.
    (Self explanatory)

    Ok fuck I'm crying by the end of this interpretation. It's just so fucking beautiful lol. I also suspect that they used the name 'Diana' as a symbol for princess Diana who struggled very much with depression, self harm, and suicidal thoughts.

    General CommentThis song really makes me feel like someone out there will love me and never ever hurt me. I think I've already found that someone. Kealehakimaikalani
