I think the lyrics are : "when I run out of ROAD, you bring me home. Regardless, "two hearts in one home" -- aside from living with Anne, Gemma, Des, Robin/ stepdads, he has shared a home with Ben, Meredith, and Louis. I can't think of anyone else. Crashing on Ed's couch doesn't count. The only YOUNG people on the above list are: Gemma & Louis. I dare anyone to tell me, by this logic, that this song is not a love letter to Louis.

Sweet Creature Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Sweet creature
Had another talk about where it’s going wrong
But we’re still young
We don’t know where we’re going
But we know where we belong

[Pre-Chorus]
No, we started
Two hearts in one home
It’s hard when we argue
We’re both stubborn, I know

[Chorus]
But oh, sweet creature, sweet creature
Wherever I go, you bring me home
Sweet creature, sweet creature
When I run out of rope, you bring me home

[Verse 2]
Sweet creature
We’re running through the garden
Where nothing bothered us
But we’re still young
I always think about you and how we don’t speak enough

[Pre-Chorus]
No, we started
Two hearts in one home
It’s hard when we argue
We’re both stubborn, I know

[Chorus]
But oh
Sweet creature, sweet creature
Wherever I go, you bring me home
Sweet creature, sweet creature
When I run out of rope, you bring me home

[Bridge]
I know when we started
Just two hearts in one home
It gets harder when we argue
We’re both stubborn, I know

[Chorus]
Sweet creature, sweet creature
Wherever I go, you bring me home
Sweet creature, sweet creature
When I run out of rope, you bring me home
You bring me home

This thing took me a year to make, doesn’t hold its shape, and it took me a week to put it together because it kept falling apart, but I love it. Shoutout to @gandalfthepilgrim for pushing me to keep trying to assemble it because I almost gave up without his encouragement

Harry Styles pulled back the curtain just a bit on his new album on Thursday (Apr. 13) with the news that the self-titled, 10-song solo debut will drop on May 12. And while the announcement still leaves plenty of questions – why is Harry face-down and shirtless in a pool of pink water on the cover? Who helped him write the songs? – one thing we do know is which producers helped the former One Direction star craft the tunes.

Styles has already served notice that he’s willing to go a bit off the beaten path for his solo bow, starting with the Bowie-meets-Pink-Floyd, Coldplay-meets-Eric-Carmen sound of the first single, “Sign of the Times.” But his choice of producers is also a signal that he’s not content to play by the rules. A look at Harry’s collaborators:

Hi! Why do u think harry said SOTT was the most literal song on the album when literally sweet creature is?....

This is purely my opinion, but I actually don’t think of either song as very literal. 

I will use this video to discuss Sweet Creatures:

Information about the song:

Produced By: Tyler Johnson, Kid Harpoon, Alex Salibian, Jeff Bhasker
Written By: Thomas Hull, Harry Styles
Release Date: May 2, 2017
Recorded At: Jeff Bhasker’s Home Studio, Geejam Hotel Recording Studio
Executive Produced By: Jeff Bhasker
Label: Erskine Records distributed by Columbia Records

Sign of the Times was a song containing apocalyptic, eschatological symbols describing a separation and an impossible escape. 

In his Rolling Stone interview, the song was described as a mother’s parting words to her newborn:

“Most of the stuff that hurts me about what’s going on at the moment is not politics, it’s fundamentals,” Styles says. “Equal rights. For everyone, all races, sexes, everything. …  'Sign of the Times’ came from ‘This isn’t the first time we’ve been in a hard time, and it’s not going to be the last time.’ The song is written from a point of view as if a mother was giving birth to a child and there’s a complication. The mother is told, ‘The child is fine, but you’re not going to make it.’ The mother has five minutes to tell the child, ‘Go forth and conquer.’”

Perhaps there were lyrics that were literal in Harry’s biography. We’ll never know which ones they are. I think the same applies for Sweet Creature. Is it autobiographical? Maybe. I can only discuss what the song says and how it chooses to say it. 

I think the title of a song is always very telling. If I Could Fly is about a melancholic yearning, even though the refrain is “for your eyes only.”

Construction of El Rancho Vegas, c. 1940

Built by Thomas Hull on U.S. Route 91, a two lane road just out of city limits. This was the first resort on the future Las Vegas Strip.

The hotel was an addition to his chain of “El Rancho” hotels in Gallup, Fresno, and Sacramento. A key attraction was a swimming pool built only a few feet from the highway. The casino and opera house added after the initial hotel plan. It opened 4/3/41, and was destroyed by fire 6/17/60.

Five Intersecting Tetrahedra (the progress)
design by Thomas Hull

CLICK TO SEE THE FINISHED PRODUCT.

So I made this for Christmas 2011! :D

I wasn’t at home when I made this, I was in a sleepover with my cousins and sister at one of my cousin’s house. So I brought a box of the 240 (YES, TWO HUNDRED AND FORTY) pieces of foil paper.

I searched 3 bookstores to find the freakin’ foil paper. I wanted the one that’s foil in front and paper at the back, not the whole foil because that one slips. There were only 4 colors so I had to repeat one color per origami. And the size of the foil paper is a cartolina, I asked my dad to cut it for me.

In the midst of playing Monopoly Deal, playing Wii, watching movies, baking cheesecakes, making panna cottas, and cooking with my cousins, I finished folding all 240. (As you can see on the third photo, the Monopoly Deal cards. Haha!)

So while playing Monopoly deal, I was folding those 9x3 cm pieces of paper. I won some rounds because they thought I wasn’t paying attention in the game. LOL! Pwned. :D

It was a little hard to put them all together because on the last tetrahedra, it gets really tight and hard to move without disjoining the other tetrahedra.

It wasn’t as hard as the Six Pentagonal Prisms I made for my sister, that was crazy. :))
