Up and away
To stay
Awhile in the arms
Of fate
Where did we start
This crush?
The question could stop
My heart
Oh

Sun on your skin
All smiles
A star at your side
You fly
Hands on the wheel
Held tight
Don't you let go
Just give it time
No

Tell me
All you hear is our song
Like a siren on the 101
Did you come to say so long?
I was sure we had just begun
Tell me
All you hear is our song
I know I can't be the only one
But you and me we are a breakthrough
Just forget the rearview
Don't ever let me go

Was it a test?
This crime
A footnote in your
Meantime?
A shot in the dark
When I
Was certain we'd come
So far?
Oh

But I've got a light
To blind
A vision of doubt
Tonight
The song on my lips
Will fly
And follow you home
Wherever you go
Whoa

Tell me
All you hear is our song
Like a siren on the 101
Did you come to say so long?
I was sure we had just begun
Tell me
All you hear is our song
I know I can't be the only one
But you and me we are a breakthrough
Just forget the rearview
Don't ever let me go

Where'd you go?
What'd you want to know?
What did you come all this way for?
Where'd you go?
What'd you want to know?
What is the luster worth so much more?
Where'd you go?
What'd you want to know?
I wonder if my heart can tie up the score
Where'd you go?
What'd you want to know?
Where'd you Go?
What'd you want to know?

All I hear is our song
I don't care 'bout the damage done
So turn it up and sing sing along
I still feel like we've just begun
All I hear is our song
I know I can't be the only one
But you and me we are a breakthrough
Just forget the rearview
Don't ever let me go

Tell me
All you hear is our song
Like a siren on the 101
Did you come to say so long?
I was sure we had just begun
Tell me
All you hear is our song
I know I can't be the only one
But you and me we are a breakthrough
Just forget the rearview
Don't ever let me go
Let me go
Let me go

    General Commentokay, welllll first of all, i love this song. :)


    secondly, i'm not sure if this is forsure what it means, but this is what it means to me-

    Up and away to stay
    Awhile in the arms of fate
    Where did we start this crush?
    The question could stop my heart.

    [it seems like they've had "something" forever and he really just cannot remember what it was like before; he thought it would last forever, but the way things are now, he's forced to remember what it's like without her]



    Sun on your skin
    All smiles
    A star at your side
    You fly

    [everything's good between them for awhile, like, the "sun" is the goodness, but then a star comes along, and it's better? so she 'flies' away?]

    Hands on the wheel, held tight
    Don’t you let go, just give it time

    [he doesn't want her to let go of this relationship]

    Tell me all you hear is our song,
    Like a siren on the 101

    [well, the 101 is a road in cali, and i'm thinking whenever you hear a siren on that road, it's pretty loud? and pretty common, or somethinggg? i donno. but basically. their song just keeps showing up, and it's sad.]

    Did you come to say so long?
    I was sure we had just begun

    [self explanatory. she breaks up with him. he feels it's much too early.]

    Tell me all you hear is our song.
    I know I can't be the only one.

    [he misses her, he wants her to miss him just as much.]

    But you and me we are a breakthrough.

    [they "breakthrough" their problems, and get back together]

    Just forget the rearview
    Don’t ever let me go.

    [she hurt him, but he wants her to forget the "rearview", as in the past, and just be all better again]

    Was it a test?
    This crime a footnote in your meantime?
    A shot in the dark when I was certain we had come so far?

    [seems to be over again, and he is extra unhappy. of course. he's searching for meaning.]

    But I've got a light to blind a vision of doubt
    Tonight the song on my lips will fly
    And follow you home wherever you go

    [he still is holding on to "their song" and wanting her to hear it; to trigger something to make her miss him]

    Where'd you go? What'd you want to know?
    What did you come all this way for?
    Where'd you go? What'd you want to know?
    What is the luster worth so much more?

    [he doesn't understand why she got back with him ever if she was just going to do it again.]

    Where'd you go? What'd you want to know?
    I wonder if my heart can tie up the score
    Where'd you go? What'd you want to know? [x2]

    ["i wonder if my heart can tie up the score" like, he wants to try to get over this, but he can't if she won't leave for real, she just keeps coming back.]

    All I hear is our song,

    [he's not forgetting.]

    I don't care 'bout the damage done

    [he still loves her.]

    So turn it up and sing sing along,

    ["turn up our song" is basically likeeee. he can't get over her; and even though he wants her to move on, so he can too, he knows he'll never forget, and he doesn't want her to either, regardless of the pain.]

    I still feel like we've just begun
    All I hear is our song,
    I know I can't be the only one
    But you and me we are a breakthrough,
    Just forget the rearview
    Don’t ever let me go.

    Tell me all you hear is our song,
    Like a siren on the 101
    Did you come to say so long?
    I was sure we had just begun
    Tell me all you hear is our song.
    I know I can't be the only one.
    But you and me we are a breakthrough.
    Just forget the rearview
    Don’t ever let me go.
    Let me go [x2]

    General Commenti totally agree with beatingheartxbaby. i'm not sure about the whole "sun on your skin" part though. it seems kind of confusing, but i kind of get what you mean.
    And, yeah, i love this song. and over it.
