Waiting for HS3 is not child's play.

There is only one thing that can get me to wait for Harry Styles' new album, Harry's House, releasing on May 20 — his already released songs.

While waiting (im)patiently, I made a list ranking all of Harry's songs, right after learning the lyrics to all the songs by heart.

Disclaimer: I love all of Harry's discography. It was an absolute struggle trying to place some of these songs. Nevertheless, here you go.

P.S. "Medicine" and "Oh Anna" aren't included here. IFYKYK!

23. "Watermelon Sugar"

This is definitely a fun summer song, but it is a little too overrated. Favorite lyric: Baby, you're the end of June.

Favorite lyric: "Baby, you're the end of June."

22. "Carolina"

I find the music in this one bland. Favorite lyric: She's got a book for every situation / Gets into parties without invitations / How could you ever turn her down?

21. "She"

This is a fun number to sing along to, nothing too fun about it. Favorite lyric: Lives for the memory / A woman who's just in his head (just in his head) / And she sleeps in his bed (his bed) / While he plays pretend (pretend) / So pretend (pretend).

20. "Golden"

I like this one, but feels like this one again is a bit overrated. Favorite lyric: I know you were way too bright for me / I'm hopeless, broken / So you wait for me in the sky / Browns my skin just right.

19. "Lights Up"

The music video is very fun to watch. However, the song in itself is nothing out of the ordinary. Favorite lyric: All the lights couldn't put out the dark / Running through my heart.

18. "Cherry"

This again is a typical Harry Styles song. Nothing we don't expect from him. Favorite lyric: I notice that / There's a piece of you in how I dress / Take it as a compliment.

17. "Woman"

Again, an energetic number to sing along to. Favorite lyric: Tempted, you know / Apologies are never gonna fix this / I'm empty, I know / And promises are broken like a stitch is.

16. "Ever Since New York"

The lyrics of the song are great, the music in itself, not so much. Favorite lyric: Choose your words 'cause there's no antidote / For this curse.

15. "Fine Line"

The title of Harry's second album is a sad song, but there are better ones in the album. Favorite lyric: Put a price on emotion / I'm looking for something to buy / You've got my devotion / But man, I can hate you sometimes.

14. "From the Dining Table"

Most of the songs in Harry's debut album are very similar to each other. I find this one pretty average.  Favorite lyric: We haven't spoken since you went away / Comfortable silence is so overrated / Why won't you ever be the first one to break? / Even my phone misses your call, by the way.

13. "Falling"

I find the song a little too slow for my taste. You might disagree with this ranking, though! Favorite lyric: What am I now? What am I now? / What if I'm someone I don't want around? / I'm falling again, I'm falling again, I'm falling.

A typical Harry Styles song. Again, pretty average.Favorite lyric:  Broke a finger knocking on your bedroom door / I got splinters in my knuckles crawling across the floor / Couldn't you take home to mother in a skirt that short / But I think that's what I like about it.

11. "To Be So Lonely"

I personally like the live version of this song more than the studio version. Favorite lyric: And I'm just an arrogant son of a bitch / Who can't admit when he's sorry.

10. "Sign of the Times"

Harry's debut is single is a beautiful song, but the lyrics are limited and its just too long. Favorite lyric: We never learn, we been here before / Why are we always stuck and running from / The bullets? / The bullets.

9. "Treat People with Kindness"

The choreography in the music video is so much fun and energetic. The song is fun to listen to, but nothing new, per se. A typical Harry Styles song. Favorite lyric: Giving second chances / I don't need all the answers / Feeling good in my skin / I just keep on dancin'.

8. "Adore You"

The music video of this one is out of this world. The aesthetics, the characters, the camera work, this is a whole package.Favorite lyric: You're wonder under summer skies (summer skies) / Brown skin and lemon over ice / Would you believe it?

7. "Two Ghosts"

This song makes me cry all the time. Favorite lyric: We're not who we used to be / We're not who we used to be / We're just two ghosts standing in the place of you and me / Trying to remember how it feels to have a heartbeat.

Harry's newest solo is deep. Favorite lyric: Ringin' the bell / And nobody's coming to help / Your daddy lives by himself / He just wants to know that you're well, oh-oh-oh.

4. "Kiwi"

An extremely fun song to dance to. I would give anything to go back in time and listen to this song for the first time. Favorite lyric: It's New York, baby, always jacked up / Holland Tunnel for a nose, it's always backed up / When she's alone, she goes home to a cactus / In a black dress, she's such an actress.

This gets the third rank because of the deep, meaningful lyrics. Favorite lyric: I know when we started / Just two hearts in one home / It gets harder when we argue / We're both stubborn.

1. "Sunflower, Vol. 6"

The lyrics, the rhythm, the emotion in his voice. This song is the best of Harry's so far.  Favorite lyric: I couldn't want you any more / Kiss in the kitchen like it's a dance floor /  I couldn't want you any more tonight / (Tonight, tonight, tonight).
