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
