"This is The Sweetest Little Song" as written by and Butch Walker....
I can only keep this feeling for a minute
Can only stare at a Polaroid so long
Before the chromofilm blurs and the smiles
On our faces are gone
I crossed a line 5 yrs in the making
That the biggest eraser can't clear
And Iâ??m rewinding every time
I whispered that in your ear
As I laid on you
And your naked body
Looked just like I wanted it to

And I wanna be the inspiration
For your room going silent
I wanna feel you erupt
When I play your song
I wanna move you to tears when I say
"It's over, goodnight"
And the rest of your life

I get mad at myself for not acting myself
I get jealous at the thought of you out
I donâ??t want you to think that its all that Iâ??m
Thinking about
But goddamn I do
And every time that I hear someone laugh,
It sounds just like you

And I wanna be the inspiration
For your room going silent
I wanna feel you erupt
When I play your song
I wanna move you to tears when I say
"It's over, goodnight"
And the rest of your life

    General Commentaww this song is so sad and pretty.

    i think he just wants the person he loves/d to care about him or show that they cared about him. he just wants to be noticed by the girl.

    It's a little unclear though, it sounds like they're either going to break up or they've already broken up...

    General CommentOH wait never mind. I never really thought out the lyrics clearly.

    He's writing a song for the girl (at least in the chorus).

    "i wanna be the inspiration
    for your room going silent
    i wanna feel you erupt
    when i play your song
    i wanna move you to tears when i say
    "its over.. goodnight"
    and the rest of your life"
    ^blatantly he's describing how he wants her to respond if he performed his song to her.

    oh such a cute song.

    General Commentto me, this song is about a guy who is in love with his best friend. "i crossed a line 5 years in the making" ... etc. and he wants to tell her with this song.
