Tonight, I say we just get out of this town
Let's go to Seattle and watch rain fall on the ground
And on our tongues, "I love you's" run into each other
But could I really trust her?

She said, "Hey, baby, baby boy, why you always look so sad?"
"You've got the whole world in the palm of your hand."
But it don't mean a thing if you're not next to me
I'm so sick, so sick, of just always dreaming

I'm sleeping on the couch
She's married to a mattress
I think the hardest times are finally gonna pass us
Is the glass half-full?
So watch my eyes
Oh babe, I promise that I'll never let what happened last time (x2)

The rain is coming down like oh, cats and dogs
It's harder to see you through all of the fog
I know you're there so I'm not scared
Let's be crazy
How 'bout we just get married?

She said, "Hey, baby, baby boy, I loved you from the day that we met."
"Don't care what mom says, or if we're ready just yet."
Cause it don't mean a thing if you're not next to me
You're who I want to wake up to every morning

I'm sleeping on the couch
She's married to a mattress
I think the hardest times are finally gonna pass us
Is the glass half-full?
So watch my eyes
Oh babe, I promise that I'll never let what happened last time (x2)

(Let's just get married)
Wait, I'm on one knee...
(Let's just get married)
Can you believe this is happening?
So let's kiss the clock just for luck
(Let's just get married)
What timing; 11:11 just struck

I'm sleeping on the couch
She's married to a mattress
I think the hardest times are finally gonna pass us
Is the glass half-full?
So watch my eyes
Oh babe, I promise that I'll never let what happened last time

I'm sleeping on the couch
(Let's just get married)
She's married to a mattress
(Oh, baby, yeah, I'll marry you)
I think the hardest times are finally gonna pass us
Is the glass half-full?
(Let's just get married)
So watch my eyes
(Let's just get married)
Oh babe, I promise that I'll never let what happened last time
(Oh, baby) (x2)

Oh, baby, baby, let's get married
Let's just get married
Oh, baby, yeah, I'll marry you

    General Commentmy boyfriend is on a trip right now. a week trip with no communication with me at all. i heard this song and it put a big smile on my face cuz we are ALWAYS talking about getting married. it put an even bigger smile on my face when i heard the guy say "what time is it? 11:11 just struck" cuz me and my boyfriend always watch the time at night to make a wish at 11:11

    anyways....

    this song is soo self explanitory. they want to get married asap. the girl doesnt care what her mom thinks. they are going through some hard times right now cuz they want to be together all the time and they know it will soon pass once they just get married.

    General Commenti love this song! soco/jm fan?

    their little catchphrase is "this is a story..."


    11:11?

    pretty coincidental man.

    anyways, the meaning really is self-explanatory. marriage. such a cute little tune!

    let's go to seattle, watch rain fall TO the ground.


    i love this song. it almost makes me think of a long distance relationship- "it don't mean a thing if you're not here with me, you're who i want to wake up to every morning?" and "i'm sleeping on the couch, she's married to a mattress"- you can almost see it movie style, split screen, both of em doing the 'laying in bed daydreaming of eachother' type thing ya know? idk. i just love the song.

    General CommentI think the marriage part can be taken metaphorically or literal. I think them being together is irrational in any sense, but he doesn't care, so he's saying "lets just get married!". as in.. lets just go for it all, forget what everyone else thinks, forget what we SHOULD do. or, yeah, it could be taken straight out and literal.

    General CommentArchie Star is Pat D'Andrea, the singer from the band October Fall. Its funny, I think I might like pat better as archie than in Oc fall.
    But s'all good either way.

    As long as he keeps up both.
