"I Do" as written by Marilyn/sawyer Mc Leod and Tracy La Marr/spillman Davis....
and when his tiny head emerged from hair and folds of skin
i thought to myself if he only knew he would climb right back in
i do
now that my blushing bride has done what she was born to do
it's time to bury dreams and raise a son to live vicariously through
the sperm swims for the egg
the finger for the ring
if i could take one back
i know what it would be

    General Commenti wrote a song called ten months about a boy who gets his girlfriend pregnant and has to marry her. which is what happened here, obviously.

    my song is told in second person talking to the boy from the point of view of the boy's hope that someday his life will be what he wants it to be.

    that speaker says "you'll bury your dreams and you'll bury (me)."

    i wrote that before i ever heard this song.

    i am sorry for wasting songmeaning's time talking about my own song.

    i think that burying dreams is very sad. and when one has to bury one's dreams one becomes a very bitter person and things turn out shitty. trust me.

    General CommentI don't necessarily think that Pedro is portraying a guy who gets his girlfriend pregnant. But rather is demonstrating the objectification of women in the Church. Primarily, that women serve one purpose: to provide offspring. It seems that Pedro is really stuck on the evidence of this mindset that he has seen.

    General CommentI think this song is sung from the point of view of a young man that has reached a turning point in his life. He no longer has hopes. The man had a lot of dreams growing up. The dreams gave him motivation in life, a purpose to live. At the point when he has the child, he realizes that his dreams are no longer a possibility. With this realization he desires two things. One, he wants to go back in life and unmake the decissions that led him to being disconnected with his dreams. And secondly, he wants to explain to other people (his child) that there is no boint in living because any hopes you will ever have will fade away or be destroyed. At the end of the song, he begins to cope. He decides that if he can't live any of his dreams in his life, his son can live them for him.

    General CommentI've always felt that this song merely describes childbirth and what comes with it. Though there is happiness and pride of having a child, there is also the sadness of having to abandon everything you've ever hoped for to raise the child so that it can grow up well.
    Not that that stopped Bazan, he has a year-old daughter now.

    General CommentDave is just feeling sorry for his child who has to live through the rushed marriage and prompt divorce of its parents. He says he obviously doesn't regret having a child, but he knows which he would take back (saying "I do"). I really prefer Bazan's cynical side.

    General Commenti think the first part of the song is about how fucked up the world is, in the church and not, you know? everything is messed up everywhere and it's a pity that kids have to live in it...

    i don't really agree with nofamelost; i just don't really see it.

    eh, that's just my pov and my opinion.
