"Happily" as written by Carl Falk, Savan Kotecha and Harry Styles....
You don't understand, you don't understand
What you do to me when you hold his hand
We were meant to be but a twist of fate
Made it so you had to walk away

'Cause we're on fire
We are on fire
We're on fire now
Yeah, we're on fire
We are on fire
We're on fire now

I don't care what people say when we're together
You know I wanna be the one to hold you when you sleep
I just want it to be you and I forever
I know you wanna leave
So c'mon baby be with me
So happily

It's four a.m. and I know that you're with him
I wonder if he knows that I touched your skin
And if he feels my traces in your hair
Sorry, love, but I don't really care

'Cause we're on fire
We are on fire
We're on fire now
Yeah, we're on fire
We are on fire
We're on fire now

I don't care what people say when we're together
You know I wanna be the one to hold you when you sleep
I just want it to be you and I forever
I know you wanna leave
So c'mon baby be with me
So happily

So happily
One, two, three, four!

Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
We're on fire now
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
We're on fire now (we're on fire)
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh
We're on fire now

I don't care what people say when we're together
You know I wanna be the one to hold you when you sleep
I just want it to be you and I forever
I know you wanna leave
So c'mon baby be with me
So happily

I don't care what people say when we're together
You know I wanna be the one to hold you when you sleep
I just want it to be you and I forever
I know you wanna leave
So c'mon baby be with me
So happily

    My InterpretationThis song is about two people who aren't necessarily in a relationship but do care deeply about each other (I can't help but see it as a girl and a boy who are best friends). The girl is already in a relationship so whatever they have is forbidden for the time being but they (more so the singer) doesn't care. They're closeness already is being judged (leads me back to the best friend thing because people say that a girl and boy can't be "just friends") by those around them. The line "I know you wanna leave" could possibly allude to her being unhappy in her relationship (obviously if you're in love with someone else) or just tired of being judged and in the public eye.

    Overall this is a sweet song about going for the one you love regardless of the outside circumstances. If you love them enough you'll go for it no matter what.

    My InterpretationThe person talked about in the song is in a relationship, but clearly wants to be with somebody else. So they act on it, and don't care about what people think or what the future soon-to-be-single person thinks. They just have to be together, because they make each other happy.

    My InterpretationI think this is about a couple that are judged negatively regardless to them being "on fire" or hot together. One of them ends the relationship because they couldn't take it anymore. They move on but they know its not as real as it was then
