Niall Horan has premiered the title track of his 2020 album ‘Heartbreak Weather.’ The new song comes along with a bright and chirpy music video despite addressing topics of loneliness and love. Let us go through the lyrics and unravel its meaning.
“Heartbreak Weather” releases from his second studio album released on March 13, 2020. This album release was preceded by singles such as “Nice to Meet Ya,” “Put a Little Love on Me,” and “No Judgement.”
In an interview with The Sun magazine, Niall Horan talked about the idea behind this track; “Heartbreak Weather” is about the start of the relationship and the song’s quite a personal song but I’ve dressed it up as a happy tune. I’m pretty decent at that. There’s a lot of sad songs that are dressed up as happier sounding ones. This has an eighties kind of feel to it, it makes you feel happy as soon as it starts and that’s what I wanted. That’s why I wanted to start the album with it because it really perks your ears up straight away. I absolutely love this song.”

Lyrics Review and Song Meaning of “Heartbreak Weather”
The whole song is dedicated to those intoxicating feelings of starting a new relationship. The past seems like a blur that was not as worthy. All you imagine is the future with this person. In the first verse, the singer recalls a very fond moment where the girl and he were dancing to a song by Bruno Mars. Her smile made his heart skip a beat!
The refrain takes us to a more cynical place in the relationship. Niall says that these sparks of a new relationship had them blinded. They wandered around in the darkness hoping the sparks would turn into a fire that would illuminate their path. But it was never meant to be.
In the chorus of the song, Niall Horan says that he has been living a lonesome life all his life. She is the one who changed it all. So he would not be able to bear to see her leave his life. But you cannot force things that are not meant to be.
Niall Horan jumps hoops between being all by himself and being with this girl in “Heartbreak Weather.” It is an even scarier feeling to be in a relationship and feel alone!
