"What If We Could" as written by and Justin Furstenfeld....
What if we could
Put our lives on
Hold and meet some
Where inside of the world
I would meet you
Would you meet me?

2, 3, 4...

On a park bench
On a skyscrape
On a mountain
Oh yeah, whatever it takes
I would meet you
Would you meet me?

I'm glad to say that we've met
But I'm sad to say that the circumstances where
On our side

So go on
Go on be your own
Go on be your own star

What if we could?
Where would we go?
If it felt right
Would you want me to know
I would meet you
Would you meet me

It's like a last chance
For a first dance
You're a sunrise
Can't somehow exist
I would meet you
Would you meet me

I'm glad to say that we've met
But I'm sad to say that the circumstances where
On our side

So go on
Go on be your own
Go on be your own star

A simple star in my eyes
In my eyes

Look in my eyes
Just look in my eyes
My eyes
My eyes!

What if we could
Put our lives on
Hold and meet some
Where inside of the world
I would meet you
Would you meet me?

On a park bench
On a skyscrape
On a mountain
Oh yeah, whatever it takes
I would meet you
Would you meet me?

God I would
God I would
I would meet you
Would you meet me

I would meet you
I would meet you
I would meet you

    General CommentTo me this song is about two people who meet, become friends and eventually discover they are soul mates and made for each other. Or at least one of them feels that way. However they are involved with someone else (or maybe he is) and it keeps them apart.

    "What if it felt right, would you want me to know?"

    They have to be strong and never admit the undeniable love they have for each other. They both know if it was known between them, nothing would stop them from being together and it would destroy the lives of the innocent people they are already involved with.

    "what if we could" "would you meet me?"
    "God, somehow exist"

    She is stronger than he is and able to resist because she know's the cost of being together but he is more desperate to know and a huge part of him wants it to be real no matter the cost.

    "So go on be your own star"
    "Your a superstar in my eyes"
    "Look in my eyes Just look in my eyes My eyes, my eyes"

    He's trying to push her out of his life, so he can go on with the life he has chosen, yet he can't let her go because she is the brightest girl he has ever known. He wants her to see it in his eyes, so she knows it's real.

    God, I would
    God, I would
    I would meet you
    Would you meet me?
    I would meet you
    I would meet you

    This part of the song sounds as if he realizes he would throw away everything to be with her, if only she would say the word and he feels guilty for it by screaming "God I would!"

    Tragic fucking song......

    General CommentWell I'm guessing that this about a relationship that can't be, they're at different points in their lives and that kills the relationship. I think he's saying he'd leave it all if they would... I could be very wrong though. Great song though

    General CommentI just heard it on their myspace. It's an awesome song. I like it just as much as Hate Me which is another great song.

    General CommentWhen I was at their concert they were getting ready to play this song and Justin was talking about how most of the crowd was from Omaha, Nebraska. He said this song was about meeting his wife who was from Omaha. She met him at one of his shows and they had trouble at first being able to meet up.

    General CommentChorus:
    I'm glad to say that we met
    But I'm sad to say that the circumstances weren't
    On our side
    So go on, go on be around
    Go on be a rock star


    Actually the lyrics are.. Go on be your OWN star.

    General CommentReminds me of a situation I'm in where me and a guy are totally into each other but for reasons I won't go into here, we can't be together right now (we're not married to other people). But so many times I'd love to just slip out of the world for one night and be able to be together.

    General Commenti guess the song is about rying. trying to keep a reationship up, and maybe one of the two people whoever it may be is kind of feeling like their putting more work into it therefore asking if they would meet them n stuff...

    General Commentthis is such an amazing song.

    it describes the situation i'm in perfectly, we both totally are into each other but the problem is hes in college and i'm just starting highschool. i know u r thinking...slut. but its so different. we are perfect together, but "the circumstances aren't on our side"

    life is pretty much shitty like that

    General CommentThis song describes my relationship with my boyfriend almost perfectly. Ever since the day we met circumstances have not been on our side, in so many unfortunate ways. And I care about him so much but sometimes I wonder how much he cares about me... He's a thousand miles away but if I were able to I'd drop everything and meet him in a heartbeat. And it makes me wonder if he'd do the same, would he meet me, too?

    The song is about two people who probably just met and felt a deep connection ("It's like a last chance for a first dance") but due to circumstances beyond their control, they can't get together. It's one of those things that you feel could really be something special if you could just get a chance to make it something. So this guy is desperate to meet with this girl and wonders, if it were somehow possible to drop everything and meet somewhere, would she meet him, too?
