"Two Ghosts" as written by and Mitch Rowland Harry Styles....
Same lips red, same eyes blue
Same white shirt, couple more tattoos
But it's not you and it's not me
Tastes so sweet, looks so real
Sounds like something that I used to feel
But I can't touch what I see

We're not who we used to be
We're not who we used to be
We're just two ghosts standing in the place of you and me
Trying to remember how it feels to have a heartbeat

The fridge light washes this room white
Moon dances over your good side
This was all we used to need
Tongue-tied like we've never known
Telling those stories we already told
'Cause we don't say what we really mean

We're not who we used to be
We're not who we used to be
We're just two ghosts standing in the place of you and me
We're not who we used to be
We're not who we used to be
We're just two ghosts swimming in a glass half empty
Trying to remember how it feels to have a heartbeat

We're not who we used to be
We're not who we used to be
We're just two ghosts standing in the place of you and me
We're not who we used to be
We don't see what we used to see
We're just two ghosts swimming in a glass half empty
Trying to remember how it feels to have a heartbeat

Trying to remember how it feels to have a heartbeat
I'm just trying to remember how it feels to have a heartbeat

    My InterpretationLet's just get this out of the way first...it's pretty obvious this song is meant to be about Taylor Swift. Beyond that, I think it's about a relationship that was once amazing, but somehow they lost that spark. Now they are just two strangers clinging to happy memories and trying to make something work that just isn't there anymore.

    My InterpretationHarry wrote this around 2013-14, clearly means alot to him to put it on his album. To me i feel its about a change in a relationship used to be so good and free, now somethings changed, communication is not as good. Somethings stopping the couple to not be themselves with eachotber.

    My OpinionI'm really sorry to those fans who hate Larry, I'm not Larry shipper, but if Harry and Louis really had relationships (not exactly lovers, maybe just really close friends, soulmates), then this song might be about their freindship, and how the time and the business they work in changed them both. Cuz they first got freinds when they weren't famous, and how the time and everything they went through have changed them.
    Actually it doesn't really matter if they had romantic relationship or were just good friends, media and their management influenced their relationship, so they were not aloud to behave as they felt to.
    And after all they went through, after all the pressure upon their friendship, Harry felt what he wrote in this song.

    My OpinionThis song is clearly about Louis and Harry (relationship or friendship). This was written around the time that Louis and Harry weren't allowed to touch or be seen together as their management forced them apart so people would stop thinking they were together. In doing so they became shells of their former self you could tell they weren't as happy, carefree because they were being controlled "We're not who we used to be We're just two ghosts standing in the place of you and me Trying to remember how it feels to have a heartbeat." There is videos of them performing where one of them would reach out to the other and realise they weren't allowed to touch "But I can't touch what I see" Also all the comments Harry and Louis have to make about girlfriends, Harry being a flirt and in Louis' case when he had to tweet that Larry is the biggest load of bullshit tweet "Cause we don't say what we really mean"

    It's an honest and raw song of two best friends/ lovers (whichever one you prefer) who were forced apart by management for the sake of the "bands image"

    My InterpretationI think it's saying that a couple has been together for so long it's changed the way they think and act towards each other
