"Perfect" by One Direction, Song Meaning with Lyrics

Today's song is the meaning of the new song by One Direction called "Perfect" from their album Made In The A.M., probably written by Harry Styles.  It's an answer to Taylor Swifts' 1989 album and all about her.  It is surprisingly a nice song.

It really reminds me of "Wildest Dreams". We see why the relationship did not work, but from Harry's perspective. Basically Harry wasn't ready to commit, "he's not good at making promises". He might not be her "knight in shining armor", the one she takes "home to mother", or "brings you flowers". He won't be the person she puts her heart into, and his "arms won't hold you anytime you want to".  But he will show her a good time, "be the one tonight" "causing trouble in hotel rooms". They can have "secret little rendezvous", doing "things you know that we shouldn't do".  They drove at midnight "with the windows down".  This is a reference to the song "Style".  They went to "places we can't even pronounce".  This made me laugh, they were globetrotting like crazy and shows his personality. Sounds a little bit like "I Know Places" right? Where Taylor talks about being able to hide from the paparazzi.  He does call Taylor out and says cameras will flash "every time that we go out" and if she needs "someone to write your breakup songs about", he will be fine with that.  This is probably the meanest comment he said about her in the song, but it is not really mean.  He says he was fine with the cameras and the songs, he knows what he is getting into when he starts dating her.   Basically the whole song is saying they were never going to get "Out of the Woods" because he didn't want to commit. If she wanted to have fun that would be perfect.

They just wanted different things, she wanted commitment, he didn't.

I've become more of a fan of One Direction over the years, this is a pretty good song. I have listened to it like 20 times already. It will be interesting to see if there are more songs about Taylor on the album...



  
Perfect Lyrics
One Direction

[Verse 1: Louis]
I might never be your knight in shining armor
I might never be the one you take home to mother
And I might never be the one who brings you flowers
But I can be the one, be the one tonight

[Refrain: Liam]
When I first saw you
From across the room
I could tell that you were curious (Oh, yeah)
Girl, I hope you’re sure
What you're looking for
‘Cause I'm not good at making promises

[Chorus: Harry]
But if you like causing trouble up in hotel rooms
And if you like having secret little rendezvous
If you like to do the things you know that we shouldn’t do
Baby, I'm perfect
Baby, I'm perfect for you
And if you like midnight driving with the windows down
And if you like going places we can’t even pronounce
If you like to do whatever you've been dreaming about
Baby, you're perfect
Baby, you're perfect
So let's start right now

[Verse 2: Niall]
I might never be the hands you put your heart in
Or the arms that hold you any time you want them
But that don’t mean that we can’t live here in the moment
‘Cause I can be the one you love from time to time

[Refrain: Liam]
When I first saw you
From across the room
I could tell that you were curious (Oh, yeah)
Girl, I hope you’re sure
What you're looking for
Cause I'm not good at making promises

[Chorus: Harry]
But if you like causing trouble up in hotel rooms
And if you like having secret little rendezvous
If you like to do the things you know that we shouldn’t do
Baby, I'm perfect
Baby, I'm perfect for you
And if you like midnight driving with the windows down
And if you like going places we can’t even pronounce
If you like to do whatever you've been dreaming about
Baby, you're perfect
Baby, you're perfect
So let's start right now

[Bridge]
And if you like cameras flashing every time we go out
(Oh, yeah)
And if you're looking for someone to write your breakup songs about
Baby, I'm perfect
Baby, we're perfect

[Chorus: Harry]
But if you like causing trouble up in hotel rooms
And if you like having secret little rendezvous
If you like to do the things you know that we shouldn’t do
Baby, I'm perfect
Baby, I'm perfect for you
And if you like midnight driving with the windows down
And if you like going places we can’t even pronounce
If you like to do whatever you've been dreaming about
Baby, you're perfect
Baby, you're perfect
So let's start right now
