He’s “better” with her. Zayn’s “Better” lyrics are about Gigi Hadid and how couple committed to each other after their years-long, on-again-off-again relationship.

The former One Direction member released his newest single and its music video on Friday, September 25. The music video saw Zayn getting dressed in a suit as he sang about a love he wanted to give on more shot. After its release, fans speculated that the track—which was Zayn’s first solo song since 2018—was about his girlfriend, whom he’s been dating on and off for the past four years. Zayn and Gigi confirmed their relationship in 2016. The couple broke up for the first time in 2018 before rekindling their relationship. They split a second time in 2019 before they reunited in January 2020. “Better” also comes less than a week after Gigi and Zayn welcomed their first child together, a baby daughter.

In Zayn’s “Better” lyrics, he sings about how he wants to give his relationship with an unnamed love one more shot. “Why? Why wait to fight? Gave it a try, why say goodbye while it’s right Can we save Tears in your eyes And watching you cry Why wait to hate? Can we save love?” the lyrics read.

The lyrics also seemingly reference Zayn’s relationship with Gigi’s dad, Mohamed Hadid. “Hope I only leave good vibes on your living room floor It hurt so bad that I didn’t when you asked for more Your dad probably loves me more than he ever did now Yeah we finally knocked down,” the lyrics read.

Read the full lyrics to Zayn’s “Better” below.

Hope I only leave good vibes on your living room floor

It hurt so bad that I didn’t when you asked for more

Your dad probably loves me more than he ever did now

Yeah we finally knocked down

 

’Cause sometimes it’s better that way

Gotta let it go so your heart don’t break

’Cause I love you

Yeah baby I love you

Just this one time hear what I’m tryna say

Know you might not feel quite the same way

But I love you

I tell you, I love you

 

Why? Why wait to fight?

Give it a try, oh I say goodbye while it’s right

Can we save

Tears in our eyes

I’m making you cry

Why wait to hate? Can we save love?

 

I fell in, I’m falling, I’m for you

I can’t let you fall through the floor too

It’s a gamble to take any more of you

 

Still in my mind sometimes, I must admit it

Like it’s a crime, on trial I got acquitted

Me and you wasn’t meant, we wasn’t fitted

Like it’s a glove, I hated to admit it

 

’Cause obviously we go back

So why would we ruin that?

In too deep, we’re rearranged

Now you wanna ask for names

We can’t let this fruit go bad

Saying things we can’t take back

In too deep, we’re rearranged

Say you feel the same

 

Why? Why wait to fight?

Gave it a try, why say goodbye while it’s right

Can we save

Tears in your eyes

And watching you cry

Why wait to hate? Can we save love?
