Drag Me Down - One Direction


by Minerva Carrillo


The Experience: When we find true love there really is nothing that can drag us down...




Music Video: One Direction presents one of the best videos I have seen of them so far! They are all preparing to become astronauts and seem to be undergoing the specific and harsh training in a NASA facility. The final scene shows them being launched in a spaceship and actually making out of Earth's orbit. It can be an interesting analogy to the song that talks about a love that makes you grow stronger and go beyond your boundaries, having nothing "dragging you down". 

Meaning of Drag Me Down: For me this song has a very simple message: love is stronger than anything else. Only when we love and are loved do we fulfill ourselves plainly and totally. A heart on fire not only comes with passion but it also comes when we find the right love and we give ourselves to it.

Ask yourself: How strong does love make me feel? Do I believe in the strength of love? 
LYRICS:

[Harry:]
I've got fire for a heart
I'm not scared of the dark
You've never seen it look so easy
I got a river for a soul
And baby you're a boat
Baby you're my only reason

[Louis:]
If I didn't have you there would be nothing left
The shell of a man who could never be his best
If I didn't have you, I'd never see the sun
You taught me how to be someone, yeah

[Liam:]
All my life
You stood by me
When no one else was ever behind me
All these lights
They can't blind me
With your love, nobody can drag me down

[Niall:]
All my life
You stood by me
When no one else was ever behind me
All these lights
They can't blind me
With your love, nobody can drag me down

[Chorus:]
Nobody, nobody
Nobody can drag me down
Nobody, nobody
Nobody can drag me down

[Niall:]
I got fire for a heart
I'm not scared of the dark
You've never seen it look so easy
I got a river for a soul
And baby you're a boat
Baby you're my only reason

[Harry:]
If I didn't have you there would be nothing left (nothing left)
The shell of a man who could never be his best (be his best)

When no one else was ever behind me
All these lights
They can't blind me
With your love, nobody can drag me down

Nobody, nobody
Nobody can drag me down

Nobody, nobody
Nobody can drag me down
Nobody, nobody

Nobody can drag me down
