Posted on

Girl Group Little Mix have been making headlines ever since the release of their third album, Get Weird. It's debut and peak position on the Billboard 200 charts led them to break another world record: Becoming the first U.K. girl group with three consecutive top 15 albums on the Billboard 200 chart.

Within this record (deluxe), is the critically acclaimed and accepted song known as 'Secret Love Song' pt. II. As stated by Jade Thirlwall, the girls "interpret the group's lyrics in the song as a narrative for the struggles LGBT people are faced with when coming to terms with their sexuality and public affection".

The next song we're gonna perform. We want to dedicate this song to Orlando. This one goes out to all the people. All the families that have been left behind; who are hurting right now. We feel like this song, is quite relevant to that. If you know it, please sing along. Everyone, this is 'Secret Love Song'.

The lyrics for the song goes as follows:

"We keep behind closed doors
Every time I see you, I die a little more
Stolen moments that we steal as the curtain falls
It'll never be enough
As you drive me to my house
I can't stop these silent tears from rolling down
You and I both have to hide on the outside
Where I can't be yours and you can't be mine

But I know this, we got a love that is homeless

Why can't I hold you in the street?
Why can't I kiss you on the dance floor?
I wish that it could be like that
Why can't it be like that? 'Cause I'm yours
Why can't I say that I'm in love?
I wanna shout it from the rooftops
I wish that it could be like that
Why can't it be like that? 'Cause I'm yours

It's obvious you're meant for me
Every piece of you, it just fits perfectly
Every second, every thought, I'm in so deep
But I'll never show it on my face

But we know this, we got a love that is hopeless

Why can't you hold me in the street?
Why can't I kiss you on the dance floor?
I wish that it could be like that

Why can't we be like that? 'Cause I'm yours
Why can't I say that I'm in love?
I wanna shout it from the rooftops
I wish that it could be like that
Why can't we be like that? 'Cause I'm yours

I don't wanna live love this way
I don't wanna hide us away
I wonder if it ever will change
I'm living for that day, someday
When you hold me in the street
And you kiss me on the dance floor
I wish that we could be like that
Why can't we be like that? 'Cause I'm yours, I'm yours

Why can't you hold me in the street?
Why can't I kiss you on the dance floor?
I wish that it could be like that
Why can't it be like that? 'Cause I'm yours
Why can't I say that I'm in love?
I wanna shout it from the rooftops
I wish that it could be like that
Why can't we be like that? 'Cause I'm yours

Why can't we be like that?
Wish we could be like that"

Overall, the song seems to have been heavily accepted as an LGBTQ+ anthem. Check out these tweets below!

Yas Little Mix! Deliver that LGBT anthem! 🔥❤️ https://t.co/QQbMCjWri8

Secret Love Song (Part II) on Little Mix's new album is low-key a legendary LGBT anthem. Queens. I'm emotional.

I don't think @littlemix realise they've written an LGBT anthem with Secret Love Song, Pt II.

So much love and respect for @LittleMix. To those who don't know, 'Secret Love Song' is pretty much a LGBT anthem https://t.co/gvhRW22aob

Love Little Mix's Secret Love Song Pt. II? Let us know! We'd love you to join the Little Mix club with us. They're pretty spectacular.

The song is lyrically emphasizing that despite the tangled ways of society, we as a community must break free and continue to fight for our rights. Whether that be through social media, conferences, etc. We have to continue to speak out because we're more than just people. We're human beings and and we deserve every bit of respect as every other person around the globe.

We can't be afraid to LOVE our loved ones. We don't have to be.

Now if America would only catch on to this amazing girl group quicker.

Little Mix USA Tour anyone? Plus, they've already sold over 12 million records worldwide. It would make sense for them to come to the states and tour, need we say more?

P.S. - Their is actually a petition going around to BRING the girls to North & South America - crazy right? Click here to learn more about it! It's already garnered over 1,200 supporters!

Anyway, we hope you continue to bask in the glory that is Secret Love Song Pt. II - not only an LGBTQ+ anthem, but an anthem for all.
