One Direction - Night Changes
The video is a point of view of going on a date with all 5 members of One Direction. The five dates take place in five different locations: a date with Zayn at an Italian restaurant (which he apparently owns as he greets some cooks and introduces his date to a waiter), a drive with Louis in his vintage car, a night in playing Monopoly and Jenga with Niall at his house next to a fireplace, ice skating with Harry and at a carnival with Liam.
One Direction - Night Changes
Everything that you've ever dreamed ofDisappearing when you wake upBut there's nothing to be afraid ofEven when the night changesIt will never change, babyIt will never change, babyIt will never change me and you
"Everything that you ever dream of, dissapearin' when you wake up, but there's nothing to be afraid of, even when the night changes, it will never change me and you," Zayn sang somberly. Notably, "Night Changes" was the last song in which he appeared on a music video with the entire group.
Will it be a romantic Italian dinner complete with spaghetti and red wine with Zayn? A drive in the country with the roof down with Louis? A night in with board games and an open fire with Niall? Ice skating with Harry? A carnival with the other one?
12:00 PM: I call my mom and tell her the news. We make a plan to buy my flight home to Florida for Tuesday morning, the last day most students were allowed to stay on campus. I figured I would need the maximum amount of time to pack up all of my things, figure out storage, and say goodbye to everyone. (Because of rumors that the Boston airport was going to shut down on Monday morning, I ended up changing this flight to Sunday night, giving me even less time than we thought.)
"Going out tonightChanges into something redHer mother doesn't like that kind of dress Everything she never had she's showing off" --- she is old enough to make her own decisions and she's wearing a dress for a date or dance that her mom doesn't like. She never was able to make her own decisions before. now that she is an adult she can get the things she has wanted that her mom didn't approve of in the past----"Driving too fast, Moon is breaking through her hair, She's heading for something that she won't forgetHaving no regrets is all that she really wants."----she's feeling the freedom with her boyfriend, he's driving too fast, living it up. She is heading for something she'll never forget with him, he plans on proposing to her which will make it something she'll never forget. She wants to live life to the fullest and have no regrets on things she hasn't done."We're only getting older, babyAnd I been thinking about it latelyDoes it ever drive you crazyJust how fast the night changes?"---he's telling her as he's proposing to her, that they aren't getting younger they are only getting older together and he wants to start a life with her now, he asks her if she's going crazy with how fast the night changes into daylight meaning another day has gone by."Everything that you've ever dreamed of Disappearing when you wake upBut there's nothing to be afraid ofEven when the night changesIt will never change me and you"---he's saying that while she's sleeping she has dreams that she really likes and feels and seems very real, but when she wakes up its only a dream, this could also be saying that past relationships seemed so real but then reality kicks in and she gets hurt. Her current boyfriend is telling her that he's not a dream, that there's nothing to be afraid of he will love her to the end of life even through all the changes in her life, he won't let it change his love for her"Chasing it tonight, Doubts are running 'round her head He's waiting, hides behind a cigaretteHeart is beating loud, and she doesn't want it to stop"----as they are chasing the the night, she is having doubts about the life with him and his vow to stay with her forever, which implies that she's probably been hurt a lot before from past relationships and been put in similar situations with ex's as she is now with her current boyfriend so she's scared, while she's feeling this way he's waiting for an answer from her and smoking a cigarette, she hears and feels her heart beating fast with excitement of the proposal and future with him and she doesn't want the feeling to ever stop, meaning she doesn't want this to be another "dream"."Moving too fastMoon is lighting up her skinShe's falling, doesn't even know it yetHaving no regrets is all that she really wants"-- some people may think they are moving too fast in the relationship, but his promises and love for her is making her fall for him more and more and eventually says yes to his proposal, but she didn't even know she was going to say yes because she was caught in the fears as well as the excitements. She doesn't want to regret saying no and loose everything because she let her doubts take over""Going out tonightChanges into something redHer mother doesn't like that kind of dress Reminds her of the missing piece of innocence she lost"--- she's going out tonight, implying bachelorette party with her friends or on another date with her now, fiancé she's wearing the same red dress she wore the night he proposed to her. her mom doesn't like the dress because it reminds her of how she lost the innocent little girl she use to have, because her daughter is now a grown woman and her moms giving her up to someone else when she has the wedding
I honestly THINK 'Night Changes', is about growing up and becoming more mature and realizing what it is to grow up. and 'just how the fast the night changes' isnt legitally one night like over time how things change dramatically.
I think it is generally more about the struggles of becoming an adult. "Night" is a metaphor for youth, you're kind of blind, oblivious to what's happening. However, as you get older you become more aware of things (like romance), and the night slowly turns into day. Of course our parents want us to stay young and innocent forever. So I think this song is about the struggles of growing up for both the girl and her mom.
My interpretation of this song is about someone in a relationship. Who goes to out with their boyfriend/girlfriend on date. But things go wrong as the night goes on. But they don't let the disappointing events define their relationship. I think that meaning be could related to any relationship a person has in their lives.
I think there is a lot that could be perceived about this song, but here is just one person's opinion:Night Changes is about a girl who's life has been hard. The line "everything she never had, she's showing off" to me means that she doesn't have much, but she's pretending like she does. Then they talk about how fast the night changes, meaning she is realizing that she could be happy regardless of her situation. As the night goes on, she dreams of a better life, but she realizes that she doesn't need one. She likes herself (and her life) the way she is. "Everything you've ever dreamed of, disappearing when you wake up" to me means the riches and glory she wanted.Than, the part about the dress, and her mom remembering her own "missing piece". I think that is about when she realized how her life was/is hard, and she sees that her daughter can overcome it, so she can too. That is just my interpretation!
my view of Zayn's line "going out tonight changes into something red" means that Zayn and that girl going out that night then changes into something bad which means "red" because red generally symbolizes the negatives so when Zayn sings going out tonight changes into something red Zayn would say that date turned into a bad situation. the "her mother doesn't like that kind of dress" part means to me that the mom doesn't like Zayn or something. The "Everything she never had, she's showing off" part tells me that as she's reaching her adult years she's getting the freedoms, decisions and other things that she never had before, she's showing that she can do things by herself
If you have ever heard of the "Red Dress effect", it means that women look more attractive in red than in other colors. Her mother obviously doesn't like this and has been protecting her for years, but the dress symbolizes that the girl is reaching independence and adulthood.Liam's verse talks about how she wants to break free and live her own life to the fullest ("driving too fast", "having no regrets is all that she really wants"). Also, the "moon is breaking through her hair" which means it is nighttime already and she is heading for something important and core to her life.I think the chorus means that everything is happening so quickly and life is changing as they reach adulthood. They don't have anymore innocence as they are probably doing the deed. As she goes on in life, the woman makes mistakes and her dream of a perfect, beautiful world "disappears when she wakes up". But her boyfriend tells her not to worry because change is inevitable and they will still stay together forever. He probably proposed that night :)In Louis' verse the girl is having doubts about what is happening in her life right now, but the boy is still there waiting for her, and he is smoking (symbolizes growing up). She feels alive right now with him and she doesn't want the feeling to stop.Now Niall's verse could be taken two ways: the girl got into an accident and died trying to "live" OR she is just enjoying her time with her boyfriend and time is going by so fast.Zayn's final verse changes its last line to "reminds her of the missing piece of innocence she lost" which the "her" could be the mom or the daughter. If the daughter died, then the mother is upset that she lost her daughter that was wearing a red dress (explaining why she doesn't like the dress: reminds her of her daughter's lost innocence and her death also). Take note that the color of blood is Red. But it could also be the daughter saying that the Red Dress reminds herself of becoming an adult, having sex, getting married. The Red Dress symbolizes the turning point of the girl's life and everyone around her.The last chorus can refer to the mom: it's horrifying how fast her daughter died and how the "night changed". She wanted her daughter to have a long perfect life, but the innocence and life just disappeared, only to be in her memory. But the last chorus can also refer to the couple, one that has not lasted as long as the mother-daughter relationship, but is as strong.Note that it doesn't have to be specifically nighttime. It could be referring to core events in a person's life. This girl is leaving her parents to marry the love of her life, showing how fast the night changes with a single action.Basically, whatever happens in life, there will always be the people who care for you. Becoming an adult, you tend to stray from your parents, but that doesn't mean the relationship wears down. Also, as you go through life, you'll craft new relationships and have ups and downs in life that you can always count on the other person to be by your side. 041b061a72
