  • Nine in the morning
    The man drops his kids off at school
    And he's thinking of you
    Like all of us do
    Sends his assistant for coffee in the afternoon
    Around 1:32
    Like he knows what to do

    She (she)
    She lives in daydreams with me (she)
    She's the first one that I see
    And I don't know why
    I don't know who she is (she, she)

    He takes a boat out
    Imagines just sailing away (away, away)
    And not telling his mates (not telling his mates)
    He wouldn't know what to say (wouldn't know what to say, to say)

    She (she)
    She lives in daydreams with me (she)
    She's the first one that I see
    And I don't know why
    I don't know who she is (she)

    She (she)
    She's the first one that I see (she)
    She lives in daydreams with me
    And I don't know why
    I don't know where she is (she, she)

    Lives for the memory
    A woman who's just in his head (just in his head)
    And she sleeps in his bed (his bed)
    While he plays pretend (pretend)
    So pretend (pretend)

    She (she)
    She lives in daydreams with me (she)
    She's the first one that I see
    And I don't know why
    I don't know who she is (she, she)

    She (she)
    She's the first one that I see (she)
    She lives in daydreams with me
    And I don't know why
    I don't know where she is (she, she) Writer/s: Harry Edward Styles, Jeff Bhasker, Mitch Rowland, Thomas Hull

  • Mo from AlkmaarCan we a collectively aggree that this is the fantasy of a gay man wanting to be with an ideal woman that he keeps seeing in his head but can't find
  • Caleb Hernandez from Minnesota I thought this song was about porn.
  • Esskay from UkThere are a lot of theories among his fans (who are prone to theorizing!), but you must look at Fine Line as an album. This track sits after the section of a relationship falling apart (but before closure is obtained), and seems to me to be referring to an idealized partner who is and always will be out of reach, as relationships take work in practice and fantasy and reality do not line up. The She referred to doesn't exist in reality.
  • Hernah from PragueI think She is a beautiful song and while- I see that she is/can be interpreted about his repressed sexuality.. I think She is about someone Harry longs for. The slow and prolonged mellow and yet dreamy tune says there’s a strong desire for something he’s never had. The solo is simply the beauty of She. Perhaps she is a part of him, and that’s why he feels like sailing away- to find that part of himself that begs to be free. She is perhaps my favorite and I called track 8 before titles were released. I made a good choice!
