"We'll Be O.K." as written by Anthony S Raneri, Jack A O'shea, John Holohan and Nick Ghanbarian....
So let's close our eyes and we'll talk in the morning
When we're able to feel
The true weight of our words and why we're both here
Then we can say we tried and take comfort in knowing
That if we both die alone tomorrow
It's just the way that the stars aligned

Hope we both learned our lesson (hope we both learned our lesson)
Hope we both learned our lesson
We'll be okay
We both got what we wanted
I got sex, you got fame
Who used who now that you've got all new friends?
But they don't know your name

Here you are, how's the big time darling?
Hope I helped make your dreams come true
And in a way I'm ashamed for not being your first or your last
Just the first cool enough to admit to
I can hide by my reputation, while sadly you're making your own
But a notch on your belt's not a notch worn so well
It's expected of me and the lies that I tell

Hope we both learned our lesson (hope we both learned our lesson)
Hope we both learned our lesson
We'll be okay
We both got what we wanted
I got sex, you got fame
Who used who now that you've got all new friends?
But they don't know your name
They don't know your name

We'll be okay
We both got what we wanted
I got sex, you got fame
Who used who now that you've got all new friends?
But they don't know your name

We'll be okay
We both got what we wanted
I got sex, tasted fame
Who used who now that you've got all new friends?
But they don't know your name

We'll be okay, we'll be okay

    General CommentWow Great Song, R.I.P. to "Beatz" the drummer of bayside,
    we love you dude!!!

    this song i think is very interpretible (is that even a word?) and im wondering why no one has posted but thats ok cause im here to change that lol :)

    overall i think this song is about a girl who either wanted to have sex with some to become more popular, want to have sex to lose her virginity or have sex with some popular guy to impress others.
    The guy either had sex with her just to have sex or what im leaning to is that maybe he thought he really had something with the girl but found out she just had sex with him for another reason besides love.
    I'm leaning towars that because he seems kiinda pissed because he says " Here you are, how’s the big time darling?
    I hope I helped make your dreams come true." kinda pissed of and being sarcastic.

    now i will interpret it line by line

    *im not writing the whole lyrics and refering it to the paragraphs to save room for others if ur wondering :)*

    1st paragraph:
    (im thingking they are in bed and may just have had sex)
    (when they wake up they will understand the weight of there words and what their words to each other actually mean and them realizing the reason why their both there in bed having sex)

    2nd paragraph:
    (saying that though they tried to get something out of having sex, the truth is that if one of them died tommorow that they really wouldnt care because they had no real feelings for eachother, even though in the lyrics it says both)

    3rd paragraph:
    (saying that they both cant complain, he did really get sex and she really did get fame by others knowing that she got laid with him
    so its like they both used eachother and both got something they wanted out of eachother so the sex favored both of them, but even though she has fame by the new friends because of what happend, the so called new friend really dont know her, that can be said by them not knowing hew name)

    4rth Paragraph:
    (hes being kinda sarcastic and nasty, ut he's also ashamed beccause he wanst her fist sex partner or her last sex partner, which both would be special, and at the same time, he's the first guy to admit that he really liked her or for a moment)

    5th Paragraph
    (no one will say that he was used because he already has a repuation but at the same time she is now making a reputation for herself, so her getting laid with him is a notch on her belt of her popularity,,,,, he knows that he will tell lied to protect his reputation)

    hope i didnt take much room, thanks for reading an i hope it helps u figire something out about this wonderful song :)

    General Commentneglectedangel, i agree with you mostly.

    i think in paragraph 4
    by saying "In a way I’m ashamed for not being your first or your last, just the first cool enough to admit to." hes not saying he's the first guy to like her or what you said, rather implying she gets around bc hes not there were guys before him and after him. also, hes not her first time but hes the guy she brags to all her friends about

    paragraph 5
    i dont really agree with you at all. it's not a belt of popularity but like a notch in your belt like of people who she sleep with and hes just a notch and so he saying basically i slept with you, so what? hes a guy in a band and hes saying its expected of him to sleep with girls like groupies whatever


    i guess its all opinion but thats what i think.

    General CommentYea, "I got sex you got fame".

    No offense, dude I love Bayside. But honestly I wouldn't know the lead singer if he kicked me in the balls, let alone his ex-girlfriend (and that is who the song is about, that model chick).

    General Commentfirst off awesome song. the lines A notch on your belt’s not a notch worn so well,
    but it’s expected of me and the lies that I tell. i think he's saying in general like the whole if girls sleep around their sluts thts why its not worn so well but guys can do it because thats what they do kinda thing and their not look down on

    General CommentI think this song is about a girl who sleeps around with a lot of guys and has a reputation for it, so the guy goes and sleeps with her just for a good bang. I don't know if that's right, sorry if it isn't.

    that's my two cents

    General Commentit reminds me of my ex boyfriend.

    he was two years younger than me so when we started sleeping together, it was all fame for him.
    but it was all sex for me : D

    haha

    General CommentI think most of it is fairly easy to figure out. But the fame he is talking about may be the fact he is now singing about her, therefore making her famous (although the name might not be) amoung bayside fans and listeners.

    Who knows. Just a guess.

    General Commentthis song reminds me of my exboyfriend.

    he took my virginity and then dumped me right after, and he had a rep for dating who ever came his way and i got fucked over and i was cool for dating him but all he really wanted was sex
