"Cross My Heart" as written by and Stephen Bryce Avary....
Cross my heart, hope to die
I swear I won't say what happened that night
So starting today things are gonna be all right
Your best you tried, and yeah you did fine
No better than fine, perfect in my mind
In fact, I wish your heart was mine
And I can hear the memory in my ears
Back to the years and all those tears
But hear me when I say I'm glad we steered that way
Because now we're here

Do you want to get away? get in the car we can leave today
Do you want to celebrate our just made little holiday?
Cause now today is your day
All that stuff you used to take
I'm glad you threw all that away cause now you look so great
You never need to be afraid just know you went the right way

Because even though we never get things right
And it gets so hard just saying we'll keep trying
Its mine to decide when ill be alright

I know you're going crazy (crazy)
But happy is all that you make me (all you make me)
And things are gonna get better baby
I know everything went wrong OK (OK)
But now its time to get some better days (some better days)
Cause I don't want to keep acting this way

Cause man I know we never get things right
And it gets so old just saying we'll keep trying
But its mine to decide when and if ill be alright..
And that's just a thing that take time

So keep going till you know when its time, when its right
Keep showing yourself in that light
Cause back in school man that gets cruel
But one thing is true is that man now look at you
Your heart is big enough for two

Because I can hear the memories in my ears
Back to the years and all those tears
But hear me when I say I'm glad because we're here

I know you're going crazy (crazy)
But happy is all that you make me (you make me)
And things are gonna get better baby
I know everything went wrong OK (OK)
But now its time to get some better days (better days)
Cause I don't want to keep acting this way

Cause man I know we never get things right
And it gets so old just saying we'll keep trying
But its mine to decide when and if ill be alright,
And that's just a thing that take time

    General Commentthis song reminds me of the time when my friend and i were locked out of my house (she was staying over because her parents were away) and it was POURING rain out so we went to her house to stay there for the night because my parents were out at a party. At about 1:30am we decided to go meet up with her boyfriend and the kid i liked at the beach. They live 45 minutes away from us. So we got in the car and this song was playing. We felt so free and we stayed at the beach with them until like 4am. we got back home and got about 3 hours of sleep until i had to go to work. It was probably one of the best times i have ever had. The lyrics "do you want to get away? get in the car we can leave today do you want to celebrate our just made little holiday?" give me butterflies when i hear because that day is all i can think of :)

    General CommentI think this song is about having hope ("and thats just a thing that take time") and confidence in yourself, despite your past mistakes ("i swear i won't say what happened that night") and past sadness ("and i can hear the memory in my ears, back to the years and all those tears") because despite all that, you're still here on earth and you are a much stronger person because of it ("but hear me when i say im glad we steered that way, because now we're here.")

    General CommentThis is the bond between two very close friends. The person who knows all your secrets, who's experienced some of the most important and impacting moments of your life. The person who you can laugh the hardest with, the person who's friendships you've made mistakes in yet they accept you that way and they two have in return made mistakes but every mistake, every laugh, every tear adds up to an unbreakable bond where even just a car ride could feel like your own holiday.

    Well, it could be about something else, but that's my opinion

    General Commentthis is by far my favorite rocket summer song and quickly becoming one of my all time favorite songs... every time i listen to it i think it is supposed to mean something else, i think that is what good songs do, this way they are confusing to understand and everyone can pretty much relate to it... no one will prolly agree with me but i think a lot of times this song is about a guy and girl that are together and split up over and over and the guy is sick of it and is really upset with her and then she comes back again and instead of doing what he should and stop letting her back in he takes her on a car ride and they make it their holiday and everything seems perfect for that lil ride in the car but a week later the relationship will be on the rocks again then she will come back a week later... all in all i love this song and i love this band

    General CommentSome of me thinks, that because of the lines "all that stuff you used to take, i'm glad you threw all of that away, cause now you look so great, you never need to be afraid, just know you went the right way" that maybe this girl has just gotten over an addiction of some sort, and they're just celebrating the fact that she's okay. also, i think he's talking about how she's changed and although she went through a rough patch, she's changed for the better.

    General CommentIt's definitely about some sort of a relationship with a girl... I think the first slow section is about them giving up their virginity to each other or something because he was like you were fine, no perfect blah di hoo. I don't know it just seems to make sense

    General Commentthis song is amazing.
    it means so much to me.
    even though we all know basically what it means and we interperete it how we want; lovers or friends; it doesn't matter...
    it just makes everything seem so right.

    General Commenti think this song is about 2 really great friends that happened to be a little more for a night. and now they're trying to get things back to how they should be.
