Who Is 'Watermelon Sugar' About? Harry Styles Fans Guess Who Song Is About as Music Video Drops

Harry went to the trouble of creating a whole imaginary island dedicated to the track, so there's no way we're taking his lyrics at face value.

So, what are the lyrics to the One Direction star's track and what exactly is the secret meaning behind the 'Adore You' lyrics?

What are the 'Adore You' lyrics?

Walk in your rainbow paradise

Strawberry lipstick state of mind

I get so lost inside your eyes

Would you believe it?

You don’t have to say love me

You don’t have to say nothing

You don’t have to say you’re mine

Honey

I would walk through fire for you

Just let me adore you

Oh honey

I would walk through fire for you

Just let me adore you

Like it’s the only thing I’ll ever do

Like it’s the only thing I’ll ever do

Your wonder under summer sky

Brown skin and lemon over ice

Would you believe it?

You don’t have to say love me

I just want to tell you something

Lately you’ve been on my mind

Honey

I would walk through fire for you

Just let me adore you

Oh honey

I would walk through fire for you

Just let me adore you

Like it’s the only thing I’ll ever do

Like it’s the only thing I’ll ever do

(It’s the only thing I’ll ever do)

I would walk through fire for you

Just let me adore you

Oh honey

I would walk through fire for you

Just let me adore you

Like it’s the only thing I’ll ever do

I would walk through fire for you

Just let me adore you

Oh honey

Oh honey

I would walk through fire for you

Just let me adore you

Oh honey

Just let me adore you

Like it’s the only thing I’ll ever do

What is the secret meaning behind 'Adore You'?

It's not the first time Harry's made a reference to strawberries - in 'Watermelon Sugar' he sings: "Tastes like strawberries on a summer evenin'." But what does he actually mean when he says 'Strawberry lipstick state of mind'?

The 'Watermelon Sugar' lyrics have been pointed out to have some seriously NSFW meaning behind the lyrics, and the 'Falling' star even admitted that there was a bit of a risque meaning behind it.

At his Tiny Desk Concert for NPR, he said: "It’s kind of about that initial I guess euphoria of when you start seeing someone or sleeping with someone or just like being around someone and you have that kind of excitement about them".

It wouldn't surprise us if the 'Adore You' lyrics had some similar references, especially since the song widely talks about a relationship and quite a complicated one at that.

The line about walking in a 'rainbow paradise' has no doubt inspired a lot of fan theories, with the main assumption being that maybe he's referencing the LGBT flag - something which he often brings on stage with him during his concerts.

What is 'Eroda'?

The 26-year-old star confirmed he's behind the mysterious island of 'Eroda', after days of speculation, by starring in the latest trailer for the 'holiday destination' which is actually an anagram for 'Adore You'.

The advert narration says, "Do you remember the way you felt off the coast of Eroda? Seeing the way the water sparkled below."

"Feeling the rush of wind lifting you as if you were literally in the centre of the world."

"Make memories for your senses at VisitEroda.com."

Some thought it was part of an upcoming 'alternate reality video game' and others tried to connect with the domain of the site which leads them to a software company based in San Francisco.

'Reviews' of people's holiday there have begun to crop up, which include things like 'eating lots of Watermelon' and others saying they'll be headed back there December 13 (the day his album was released).
