i lost my memory in a cab back in the city
its somewhere off of lexington
just somethin that the east coast does to me
makes me forget who i am

so cmon and hold me, dont put out the lights
i wanna see that look in your eyes
i know tho lately ive been out of your sight
being here has never felt so right

im falling in love with you
balloons or no balloons
so its time i forget the past
and just learn to love what i have
cause i love waking up to your laugh

theres something about the midwest honey
oh it makes me miss you more then life
could be the trees that stand alone in the fields
they remind me every coupla miles

id love to stop our lives, stop everything
just so we could move far away
and live alone together with the sweat of the summer
with the chill of the cold winter air

im falling in love with you
more reasons then 22
so its time i forget the past
and just learn to love what i have
cause i love waking up to your laugh

wont you put it in drive?
cmon and get me back home
ill spend the rest of my life
with only you by my side

    General CommentWell, being from AZ I absolutely adore the Format.
    Nate is so damn entertaining live, and such a sweet heart in person.

    I love love love this song.
    It's quickly grown to be one of my favorites by them.

    I think that it's definitely about missing someone or something, and how when you do miss that person everything just seems to remind you of them.
    No matter where you are, or what you're doing...
    everything just points back to that same person.

    & I think it's also about falling in love with someone minus all of the pretentions.
    "Balloons or no balloons"
    Like he doesn't need all of the things that he needed in previous relationships to fall in love with someone.
    He can just love the person for who they are...
    & love being with them.

    General Commentthis song, like all of the songs by the format, is so catchy and well written. i only have the live version of it and his voice still sounds awesome.

    General Commentit sounds to me like an "i miss you" song for when their touring and he cant be with her. its kindof...ironic maybe? that nate always says he doesnt really care to be home more than a couple of weeks at a time, and he would rather be touring, and yet this song seems to be about missing home, though i guess its not really home, its just janet. Also, i only have the live version and i feel like his voice is more powerful live than it is on a cd. not quite as easy sounding. its a different but eqally pleasing sound to me.

    General Commentand also if he is talking about new york at the begining (which makes perfect sense)...do people all over the country refer to new york city as just "the city" cause i know people in new york state do, but i never would have guessed that the rest of the country does. i wonder if they call chicago "the other city"...haha, sorry....hey, i thought that was pretty funny.

    General Commentchicago is actually called "second city", i'm assuming in reference to being second behind new york.

    General CommentI was just wondering if anyone knows why he says "i'm falling in love with you, more reasons than 22" is that his age or is there something else behind it

    General Commenti think the balloons part means like i'm falling in love with you for who you are not just bc of the way you dress/do your makeup or the romantic settings or anything
