Watermelon Sugar - Harry Styles

The Experience: I don't know if I could ever go without... Washed away in desire for someone...
The Vibe: Lazy happiness.
The Topic: Desire.
The Tension: No qualms. Just the tension of desire: I just want to taste it.



Music video: The visuals showcase an orgiastic beach party that plays heavily to the sexual undertone of the lyrics. An early summer song assault on COVID-19 social distancing, Watermelon Sugar is dedicated to touching. However it's sexual touching, not connection, that drives this party.

The Meaning of Watermelon Sugar: Harry Styles sings to desire. A state that brings its own kind of high. It's a happiness that's imperfect - you don't quite have what you want yet. But it's also idealized and picture perfect - you haven't been disappointed yet. Watermelon Sugar's kind of desire also carries a sexual undertone that the music video ramps up: breathe me in breathe me out and I want your belly and washed away in you.

Ask yourself: Are your desires as profound as the needs of your heart?

Album:  Fine Line (2019)

LYRICS:

Tastes like strawberries on a summer evenin'
And it sounds just like a song
I want more berries and that summer feelin'
It's so wonderful and warm

Breathe me in, breathe me out
I don't know if I could ever go without
I'm just thinking out loud
I don't know if I could ever go without

Watermelon sugar high
Watermelon sugar high
Watermelon sugar high
Watermelon sugar high
Watermelon sugar

Strawberries on a summer evenin'
Baby, you're the end of June
I want your belly and that summer feelin'
Getting washed away in you

Breathe me in, breathe me out
I don't know if I could ever go without

Watermelon sugar high
Watermelon sugar high
Watermelon sugar high
Watermelon sugar high
Watermelon sugar high
Watermelon sugar high
Watermelon sugar high
Watermelon sugar high

I just wanna taste it, I just wanna taste it
Watermelon sugar high

Tastes like strawberries on a summer evenin'
And it sounds just like a song
I want your belly and that summer feelin'
I don't know if I could ever go without

Watermelon sugar high
Watermelon sugar high
Watermelon sugar high (Sugar)
Watermelon sugar high (Sugar)
Watermelon sugar high
Watermelon sugar high
Watermelon sugar high
Watermelon sugar high

I just wanna taste it, I just wanna taste it (Woo)
Watermelon sugar high
I just wanna taste it, I just wanna taste it (Ooh)
Watermelon sugar high
Watermelon sugar
