Wrap your arms around my neck so tight
So I can tell what you did and where you were last night
I can smell her perfume on my bed
All she wanted was to see the world
Until she met this boy who fell in love with the girl
Love was not there, she said

Wish that I could buy you all the flowers in the world
And say I’m sorry o’er a half a million times
Wish I could erase the fact that I am not a perfect man
It sounds like such a capital idea

Aye Julian, is this the end of us now?
Love will take you away
Julian, is this the end of us now?
Love will take you away

Aye Julian

Wish that I could buy you all the flowers in the world...

    General CommentActually... It's from a girl's perspective. then it switches back to the guy's perspective. It's about a girl and she caught her boyfriend cheating on her. then he says he's sorry and he wishes that he could buy her all the flowers in the world to make it up to her..and that he's not a perfect man. Then the guy describes his girlfriend that is saying the chorus and how she was just there and they fell in love but he was in love with another girl (the perfume chick) but the girl is saying "love was not there" between the perfume girl and the guy.Then it goes back to the girl talking about how he cheated and then back to the guy asking julian if it's over. ending the song with "Wish that I could buy you all the flowers in the world" is repeating the fact that he's sorry and is in love with her.

    General CommentIt seems like it's coming from both points of views. I love this song dearly. It's a song about cheating. "All she wanted was to see the world til she met this boy who fell in love with a girl," people usually would give up everything for love.
    On their myspace, they said Julian is also the child that would have been born if the relationship had progressed, and I totally didn't see it as that way. Now that I think, it seems correct. "Love will take you away." The guy was in love with both women, and he cheated, his girlfriend broke up with him, so the idea of a baby was 'taken away' by his 'love' for the other girl.

    General CommentDo you not hear how the music changes?

    The fast angry part is the girl realizing that the boy she's in love with and tried to settle down with ("All she wanted was to see the world
    Until she met this boy who fell in love with the girl") is not only in love with another girl, but is sleeping with Girl #2 in her own bed, the bed they probably share as a couple.

    Then the music slows down and it's the boy trying to tell Girl #1 that he's sorry and "Wishes that he could buy her all the flowers in the world."

    General CommentNot so simple, actually. It's about a girl that met this boy and she wanted him, but this boy (Julian) fell in love with some other girl, which is where she states that "love was not there" between Julian and herself. The verse if coming from Julian's point of view telling her he's sorry that he isn't perfect.
