Harry Styles has just released his debut single titled Sign Of The Times, and it strikes an emotional chord with all of his fans. Styles sings about love and overcoming the adversities that comes with the time we live in. It is clear that the song itself poses the question on how people rarely face their problems head on and tend to runaway from their fears. One line in particular reads, “Why are we always stuck and running from the bullet?” and it captures the essence of the song perfectly. Constantly being stuck in a situation that we have been in countless times before is something every generation can relate to, and the running from the bullet reinforces the fact that we rarely know how to face our issues.
The song goes on to explain that this isn’t anything new, and that crying over the dark times doesn’t make them any brighter. As the song progresses the meaning gets a bit darker explaining that the end is near, and that can mean that the end of the world the lovers have created is near. Harry compares the end of the world and “breaking through the atmosphere” to the separation from his lover, and then explains that they can meet again somewhere.
As a whole the song dives into a new realm for Harry Styles, first being the debut single allowing fans get a taste of his solo sound and second exploring the realm of songs that can have double meanings. One thing is for certain and that is that Harry-mania will start sweeping the nation with this single.
