Is One Direction's New Song About Zayn? Here Are the Lyrics

One Direction released a new single this week, to the surprise and delight of everyone, everywhere. OK, maybe that's an overstatement, but it's very exciting. It's the group's first single since Zayn Malik's very public split from the group, and you know what? It's still great. When you first hear the title, "Drag Me Down," you might think it's a passive-aggressive swoop at Zayn dragging the group down — at least, that's what I thought. At further inspection, it's actually a love song. The most damning lyrics are, "Nobody can drag me down." Is it Zayn? Is Zayn dragging you guys down? Listen to the song and check out the lyrics below to decide for yourself.

I've got fire for a heart, I'm not scared of the dark
You've never seen it look so easy
I got a river for a soul, and baby you're a boat
Baby, you're my only reason

If I didn't have you there would be nothing left
The shell of a man, it could never be his best
If I didn't have you, I'd never see the sun
You taught me how to be someone, yeah

All my life, you stood by me when no one else was ever behind me
All these lights, they can't blind me
With your love, nobody can drag me down
All my life, you stood by me when no one else was ever behind me
All these lights, they can't blind me
With your love, nobody can drag me down
Nobody, nobody
Nobody can drag me down
Nobody, nobody
Nobody can drag me down

I've got fire for a heart, I'm not scared of the dark
You've never seen it look so easy
I got a river for a soul, and baby you're a boat
Baby you're my only reason

If I didn't have you there would be nothing left
The shell of a man, it could never be his best
If I didn't have you I'd never see the sun
You taught me how to be someone, yeah

All my life you stood by me when no one else was ever behind me
All these lights, they can't blind me
With your love, nobody can drag me down
Nobody, nobody
Nobody can drag me down
Nobody, nobody
Nobody can drag me

All my life you stood by me when no one else was ever behind me
All these lights, they can't blind me
With your love, nobody can drag me down
All my life you stood by me when no one else was ever behind me
All these lights, they can't blind me
With your love, nobody can drag me down
Nobody, nobody
Nobody can drag me down
Nobody, nobody
Nobody can drag me
