These lyrics by Harry Styles are very much about being in so much love with his partner. He extends the topic extracted out of the book to add the word ‘high’ to show how much intoxicated he is with his lover. It is a never-before-heard level of high.

In the first verse of the song, Harry Styles confesses that she gives him all the summer feelings. She tastes like strawberries, she sounds like a song, and her touch is wonderful and warm. She is the complete Summer-vibe package.

How does he get high next to her? Just by breathing her presence in. Harry also admits that he is quite lost without her and he does not last without her. Harry tells us that she is just like what ‘watermelon sugar’ was to those citizens from the novel.

Even the second verse is dedicated to Harry explaining how intoxicating she is just like how the Summer is for most people. Summer is the happiest season of all filled with life, laughter and activity. She is his Summer, and he is hooked.
