No anon, I don’t. But thanks for gracing my inbox with the “ask of the day to try and send the larries away”, it’s been a long while since I’ve gotten one of these ;-)
PS: on the off chance that you are an actual Larrie worried about whether they may have broken up, sorry for the above, and no worries, my answer is still no. Rather the opposite in fact. I think they have a very strong relationship that people thought wouldn’t last, that they themselves maybe didn’t think would last when it just started out (who thinks they will meet their life partner at ages 16 and 18? few people do), which is why - so it seems from the snippet we’ve heard - they caved under pressure of the record label to be closeted, but then despite all the obstacle, and despite years and years of harsh closeting, and most likely also the label/management trying to pit them against eachother, their relationship survived and did last. I think Louis is singing about his closet, how it’s there because he “gave into the pressure” and how that’s affected their relationship, and Harry. And I am writing that this is killing me, and putting sad smileys in my tags because I’ve been here watching this since 2013 and you could tell how much the closeting was hurting them, and we’ve been wondering how it was for them, and now we are finally hearing it, and it hurt every bit as much as we thought - #theclosetisalonelyplace and as LGBTQ+ peeps we knew this. Two Ghosts killed me too. And that too, is a song, not about a relationship breaking down, but about the closet and how that affects a relationship. It’s outright amazing that Louis is out there and singing these very personal, vulnerable songs.
But I’ve only heard a snippet. It’s taken me more than 2 years to “get” Sign of the Times, so I’ll await tonight, and then I’ll let it sit for a bit, and then please ask me for my considered opinion.
Last but not least: songs are not diary entries, and they are not scientific descriptions of reality. Song are an artform, and some lyrics are symbolic, other lyrics will be “fiction”, some others really personal and true. Like all good art, ideally they leave enough room for interpretation for different people to feel connected to them. So I would never conclude they had broken up based on lyrics alone.
