One Direction's "One Thing" Gets The #deCODED Treatment



For a while, all we would ever heard on the radio was adorable UK boy band One Direction's "What Makes You Beautiful". And now, all we ever hear is the group's second big single "One Thing"! Will we ever escape the power of One Direction? We don't know. All we know is that "One Thing" is constantly in our heads, so we need to #deCODE this little ditty: maybe it'll no longer be in our heads once we find out the meaning behind it...

I've tried playing it cool
But when I'm looking at you
I can't ever be brave
'Cause you make my heart race


Sometimes love can be a scary thing. You're essentially giving all of yourself to somebody, and that requires courage! The guys from 1D can't even pretend to be cool around their girl because she makes their heart beat way too fast.

Shot me out of the sky
You're my kryptonite
You keep making me weak
Yeah, frozen and can't breathe


Kryptonite is Superman's one weakness, so they're comparing this girl to kryptonite because she makes them weak in the knees. :P

Something's gotta give now
Cause I'm dying just to make you see
That I need you here with me now
Cause you've got that one thing


Simply put: she's got that "one thing" that makes the guys fall in love with her! But what could it be? We might never know...

So get out, get out, get out of my head
And fall into my arms instead
I don't, I don't, don't know what it is
But I need that one thing
And you've got that one thing


Just as we predicted: the guys have no clue what that "one thing" is, but she needs to stop wandering around in their heads and get into their arms ASAP.

Now I'm climbing the walls
But you don't notice at all
That I'm going out of my mind
All day and all night


They're going crazy because they're dong everything they can to make this girl notice them, and she's not impressed! We have no idea how she ignores them...they're pretty easy on the eyes and ears, after all...

Get out, get out, get out of my mind
And come on, come into my life
I don't, I don't, don't know what it is
But I need that one thing
And you've got that one thing


Their final declaration asks the love of their life to just come into their life already! Maybe she's also scared of falling in love? She should just go for it!

Do you have another meaning for 1D's "One Thing"? Let us know in the comments...
