“Late Night Talking” is the second track on Harry Styles’ 2022 album ‘Harry’s House.’ In the song, Harry reminisces all the late-night talks of sweet nothings he has had with a former partner. It only takes twenty-one days to form a habit, and all their late-night talks have made Harry an addict to a special euphoria.
Harry Styles released his third studio album ‘Harry’s House’ on May 20, 2022. The album follows Harry’s previous release in 2019, titled ‘Fine Line.’ The new album takes melodic themes about people’s mental states during current days. Although, the album cover paints a house turned upside-down, a house is where your heart is.
“Late Night Talking” is rumored to be inspired by one of Harry Styles’ relationships. He debuted the song during his live performance at Coachella 2022 alongside “Boyfriends.”

Harry Styles “Late Night Talking” Lyrics Meaning and Song Review
Harry Styles kicks off the song by warning about impending trouble.
Things haven’t been quite the same
There’s a haze on the horizon, babe
A haze blurs vision, casts doubt, and fogs the path ahead. There is something off about them lately, but Harry can’t quite put the finger on it.
It has only been a few days since his partner has been away and he misses them so much. He cannot help but feel that something is slipping between his fingers.
Harry is aware that nothing in life really goes to plan perfectly every time. He gives two nonchalant examples of this; stubbing your toe (as painful as this is, this is quite painless compared to heartbreak) or breaking your camera (which seems quite insignificant compared to heartache, too).
But whatever life throws at you, Harry promises to be there to hold their partner’s hand through it. This is the sweetest promise one can give and receive.
If you’re feeling down, I just wanna make you happier, baby
They have been at it all night long for days now. No, not sex. But holding each other and talking. Just conversations about their day, how they feel, how they want to feel, and what’s eating inside their heads. Harry grew to like these little escapades into a world of their own.
Once a habit is formed, it is quite hard to get rid of them.
I’ve never been a fan of change
But I’d follow you to any place
Harry Styles says that he loves consistency (who doesn’t?). But if he was to change anything about his life, he would do it for his partner. He would leave the limelight behind if that was what it took to keep them by his side and continue these late-night talks.
Now that a strange hazy cloud is rolling in, Harry wants to do everything he can to keep his partner in sight. But he is worried that this reality might be slipping out of his control.
The song hits differently on a rainy evening laying in bed with the person you love!
