Harry Styles dropped his second solo album Fine Line, the follow-up to his self-titled debut, back in December. It peaked at number three in the UK albums chart and features singles Lights Up, Watermelon Sugar, Adore You and Falling. There has been much speculation about the meaning behind the lyrics for the new ballad, with many fans debating whether or not it’s about his ex-girlfriend Camilla Rowe.
In an interview with RADIO.COM, Styles explained the truth about Falling, saying it was about a period of time where one starts falling back into a dark place.
“Falling is about getting right before a place that you recognise as a low for you,” he said.
“You kind of feel yourself falling back into that down period, I guess, and being sad about what you lost.”
The lyrics for Falling include the lines: “I’m in my bed / And you’re not here / And there’s no one to blame but the drink and my wandering hands.”

In the chorus, Styles croons: “What am I now? / What am I now? / What is I’m someone I don’t want around?
“I’m falling again / I’m falling again / I’m falling…”
Some fans spied a clue in the music video which appeared to hint Falling was about Styles’ split from his French-American ex-girlfriend Rowe.
In the video, which sees the popstar sat at a grand piano as the room around him fills with water, the silhouette of the Eiffel Tower can be seen outside the window.
