I can see that someone went and left you hanging from a string
And if I pulled hard I could make you do most anything
You can run from the past but mistakes are meant to last
Between the lines these are mine

The moment that you go is the moment that you know
That the best thing in your life is happening
So look me in the eye
And say you'll never say goodbye
I know the best thing in my life is happening now

You can tell your father I know that he won't let you be
Doesn't wanna believe that you see him in me
But the way that you lay so serene inside the gloom
I don't care
I don't care

The moment that we go is the moment that we'll know
That the best thing in our life is happening
So before we say good bye and leave them all behind
Know the best thing in our life is happening now
And I won't let you ever fade
Like a sunburn wasted in L A
And if we fall down breaking all along the way
I'll lift you up and that's a promise that I'll never break
And then you won't and then you won't

We sit on the steps reading graffiti on the wall
The smile on your face, more than words it says it all
On your way you will find the meaning in the rhyme
You are mine
You are mine

The moment that you go is the moment that you know
That the best thing in your life is happening
Before we say goodbye
Just look me in the eye
I know the best thing in my life is happening now

    General CommentSurprised that there aren't more comments on this one...this is an amazing song! I haven't researched but i think the meaning rings through pretty clear. It sounds like they've made the decision to leave their parents and friends (possibly engaged) and they know that they may get some resistance, but the way he speaks to her (possibly to calm her down and give her confidence that they have an incredible happy future together) is the part that gets me. It the way you should speak to a woman...and the way you should build each other up...this song is awesome! Great lyrics...great tune...and easy to play on the guitar!
