"Red Light Pledge" as written by and Shane Told....
The ending's the same,
Past mistakes that you made
Come back to haunt you.
I made a mistake;
I wish I could take back everything that I did.
I wanted to tell you,
I really did.
But how do I explain this?
Promise me you will be there
Until the red light will change.
I would wait forever.
Promise me you will stay here
Until the darkness will fade, I'd wait for you.

    General Commenti think the red light means he would wait there till it turns greem( not literally) ,,like he would wait until everyuthing cool again..this could be mistakes he made before they were together or past mistakes from the past relationships that she found out about,,,oh well this songs cool.,,,woof

    General CommentI think this song could be interpreted a few ways there are two situations i think of when i hear it either the person cheated one someone who they really cared about and are tearing themselves up about how they wish they could say somehing but it would ruin everything so they are just living with a guilty concious until thier lover found out about it from someone else and everything was ruined or two people liked eachother but one wouldn't confess it possibly because of some social influence and then once they get themselves together they realise it is too late because the other person has moved on and they are left to regret not listening to thier feelings when it mattered. The first situation is decribed by the song better, but i like the second one. anyway i love everything by silverstein!!

    General Comment~This is one of the best silverstein songs, especialy one of the best off this album.

    ~this was prolly already said but this song means:::

    ~Hes made a few mistakes in thier relationship and hes sorry for what he did.

    ~He wants to fix everything , and he wants her to wait for him, because if she was in his position, he would wait for her....

    General Commenthe dated a chick and after a while he did something to upset her that led to them breaking up. Shortly after, he realized "i made a mistake, wish i could take back everything that i did" but by the time he realized he made the mistake it was almost to late for the girl to forget about his mistake and love him again because she wasnt ready yet therefore he says he dosent realy care how long it takes (i would wait forever).....fyi i heard from shane himself after a concert that the title/chorus was named red light pledge because on a way to a band practice he put the song together on paper at stoplights.

    General CommentI kind of inferred it as a long distance relationship... 'until the red light will change' could mean 'until things are possible for us to actually be together'.

    General Commentholy shit look its my favorite song now isnt it? but i think that it means that he did something to upset her and so he is telling her and he wants her to promiss that she will be there for ever no matter what, even for whatever it was that he did!
