Not just being LSS to One Direction’s songs like Perfect or Drag Me Down that includes in their album Made in the A.M. The band has a deep impact on some (include me in) of the people who take a look back on their past.
The song “History”, was written by Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, John Harry Ryan, Edward James Drewitt. What is your first impression as you hear the song? Are you having LSS to it? My history impact got me 2 different interpretation of the song.
- This song is dedicated to Zayn Malik who left the band after their concert at the Philippines. In the music video, Zayn is part of it as it looks back from where they began in X-Factor. All of the happy memories during the shoot of their music video in One Way or Another and others, especially during rehearsals of the boys in their concerts.
- This song taught me on how to look back from where you started, those people who helped you to raise you from the bottom to the top, they’re part of what you are now. They’re part of the past life you’ve had. And the synonymous word for the word PAST is HISTORY. Without them, you’ll never be who you are now. Your HISTORY has an impact of your present because you’re dealing with new people you’ve never worked or known for so long but as we look back our HISTORY will always be alive as you remember those happy, sad or even the embarassing moments you’ve encounter.
There are lines of the song that takes me in another perspective.
Keep getting the feeling you want to live this all alive. I thought we were going strong. I thought we were holding on.
For me the lines said in the first verse are the expression of the band as one of their member leaves. For example, it seems like everything is in perfect but one of the roses aren’t blooming so you need to leave the one for the goodness sake of others. In reality, if you’re at the top and one of you’re friend goes down for his/her own happiness you’ll be very emotional for all the up and downs you’ve encountered, they’ll just disappear like a magic trick.
You and me got a whole lot of history. We could be the greatest team that the world has ever seen. You and me got a whle lot of history. So don’t let it go, we can make some more, we can live forever
The chorus part of the song is reminiscing and telling that all happened to the past don’t just forget all of those freaky, stupid, funny, scary moments happened when you’re together with the people arond you, they’re the souvenir of the things you’ve done in the past.
Cause the truth is out, I realize that without you here like it’s just a lie. This is not the end. This is not the end.
Like in dreaming, you wake up in reality that it’s just a simple dream but in this part of the song it tells that it maybe the last time, but the end is too far from us. Though we may have seperate lives, there are still connections from each of us remains, so definitely this is not the end.
