Harry Styles – She (Lyrics Review and Song Meaning)
The eighth track on Harry Styles’ 2019 album ‘Fine Line’ is something peculiar. In music, lyrics and song meaning, this song titled “She,” stands apart from the rest. Let us learn why in this lyrics meaning breakdown.
Harry Styles’ second studio album ‘Fine Line’ is mostly dedicated to his relationships, most of them in the past. Songs such as “Cherry” and “Falling” directly seem to be talking to his ex, Camille Rowe. Other songs such as “Lights Up” are an address to himself. “She” is, however, about a vision Harry has of his ideal partner.
In this song, Harry Styles narrates his idea of what a perfect relationship would look like. He envisions his daily and monotonous routine with her, happy and complete. But he has not come across such a woman that befits this description. Listen to the song below.

Lyrics Review and Song Meaning of “She”
In the first verse of the song, Harry Styles narrates the daily routine of his perfect life. He has kids and he is happy to drop them at school at 9 am. He does have a job and it sounds like he is allowed to come in late. Maybe he is the boss of his company in this vision? Why not! This is further proven when the singer says he sends his assistant to grab him a coffee at work.
The chorus brings us back to reality. As much as Harry Styles wants this life, it is merely a vision in his head for now. Throughout his relationships, he might have searched for the perfect fit for his vision, but none has come close. Based on songs such as “Cherry” and “Falling,” we can assume that Harry’s ex-Camille Rowe is the one who came closest to fit this description/daydream.
Unfortunately, the search continues!
These lyrics do not mention his perfect wifey as he sails on his private boat into the high seas. Maybe his perfect vision includes him enjoying his personal space as well. He does not even invite his bed buddies on this excursion. There is peace and self-love in seclusion.
The bridge of the song also tells us that the singer has this woman running around in his head, making his visions near perfect. She is lovely, active, helpful, fun to be with and sleeps in his bed. All of this, in his imagination!
The final guitar riff, spanning over 2 minutes, is definitely a new and unique touch in possibly Harry Styles’ entire discography.
