Diana - One Direction



The Experience: Love on the rebound is the meaning of Diana. After falling apart (it's been four months, you've fallen down so far) it's time for healing. (How could someone not miss you?) And while loving her equals "Let me, Diana, save your life", when Diana loves back, it means "Baby, you'd be saving mine."   

The Video: Still Waiting. 

My Take: Diana feels alone, attacked - they make you feel so small, how could someone mistreat you? Her boy comes to her rescue, like a knight in shining armour, I can hear your call. Men were made to defend women. (Note: men are supposed to be helpful, not that women should pretend to be helpless.)to possess or use them.) But love goes both ways, both losing love and falling in love. Loneliness borders on finding no meaning in living (for both). Loving means happiness, a new life (for both). Save your life, you'll be saving mine. Not only does the knight in shining armor save the princess - princess Diana saves the knight. 

Ask Yourself: Do I defend those who are mistreated? Do I promise never to mislead you?


LYRICS:


They make you look so small,
How could someone not miss you at all?
(Oh-ah-oh)

I never would mistreat ya,
Oh 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 you, child,
You could love me, 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 you child,
You could love me, 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 you,
Swear I’d never put you down.

Diana,
Let me be the one to light a fire inside you child,
You could love me, 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
