"Follow Through" as written by and Gavin Degraw....
Oh, this is the start of something good
Don't you agree?
I, haven't felt like this in so many moons
You know what I mean
And we can build through this destruction
As we are standing on our feet

So, since you wanna be with me
You'll have to follow through
With every word you say
And I, all I really want is you
You to stick around
I'll see you everyday
But you have to follow through
You have to follow through

These reeling emotions they just keep me alive
They keep me in tune
Oh, look what I'm holding here in my fire
This is for you
Am I too obvious to preach it
You're so hypnotic on my heart

So, since you wanna be with me
You'll have to follow through
With every word you say
And I, all I really want is you
You to stick around
I'll see you everyday
But you have to follow through
You have to follow through

The words you say to me are unlike anything
That's ever been said
oh what you do to me is unlike anything
That's ever been
Am I too obvious to preach it?
You're so hypnotic on my heart

So since you wanna be with me
You'll have to follow through
With every word you say
And I, all I really want is you
you to stick around
I'll see you everyday

So since you wanna be with me
You'll have to follow through
With every word you say
And I, all I really want is you
you to stick around
I'll see you everyday
But you have to follow through
You have to follow through
You're gonna have to follow

Oh, this is the start of something good
Don't you agree?

    General CommentIn any relationship you have to Meet the other person half way. Love can't just be told or understood. It has to be expressed, acted upon and demonstarted equally by both parts involved. The person singing is more matured and experienced than the one listening. Gavin does a great job putting this ideas in a kind, loving way. Great Love Song!!

    General CommentThis song basically is about following through with your emotions. Once you tell a person you like them you can not just back off and do nothing about it. This song is pretty much begging the other person to stand up and come and get me.

    General CommentI believe it means that he wants this girl to put the same amount of effort into this new relationship as he is. He will do anything she wants, she has to show him that she is for real.

    General Commenti think its about a girl such as a friend of his who had come out and told him that she likes him, and he likes her as well, he just wants to make sure that shes real about it and is going to be there for him since he's going to be there for her

    General CommentGavin did an interview on my radio station and said that this song refects an emotional part of his life. He met a girl but he was at the certain point in his life where if she wasn't gonna follow through with everything she said then she shouldn't waste her time on him.

    General CommentI think it is about a girl telling Gavin that she really likes him. I think he's telling her that they're relationship won't last if she doesn't follow through with her emotions and what she says.
