you said it to me once or twice tonight
i'll be the first to call your name
if i die tonight i want your name written on my grave
just go, let it go
you know now its not a race
but don't let me know

i'm ready when you are, take me home
you know i shouldn't be left alone
tell me whether i'm right but tell it to my face
tonight

with everything i do (and everything you see)
how can you put up with me?
and i shouldn't do half the things i don't want you to see
and i shouldn't be here alone tonight
so just bring me home alright so i can see you

    General Commentit's okay. I like this though;
    "if i die tonight i want your name written on my grave"

    it could either mean, that you love that person so much that you want their name with you when you die.
    Or that their name can be written there for the cause of death.

    General Commentpersonally i think the song at least at the start is about first love, and he's talking about their first time or just being in love for the first time in general. Then later in the song id say its later in the relationship maybe after a breakup....

    General CommentI love this song and the band. Brighten is probably the best band I've ever seen perform live.

    This may be just me, but I can see this song in a religious view, too.

    General CommentI love this song so much.

    "if i die tonight i want your name written on my grave"
    [i think it means that they want the person they love to always be a part of them so if they die they want to take the other persons last name on their grave even if they arent married yet..idk]

    General CommentAt first I thought this band has a whiny, generic sound to it as well, but this band has grown on me.
