I’ll make you mine if you would have me.
With a silver ring that will hug you tight,
Our life begins.
Our life begins with this.

I’ll prove my love if you would let me.
Over and over and over again.

We’ll bring a child into this world
And we’ll say the one thing
Everyone should hear:

You were meant for amazing things.

Give me your hand, it’s time.
It’s time to show new eyes their home.
When fences divide our land,
I would catch bullets with my bare hands.

Because you were meant for amazing things.

    General CommentBeautiful.

    I'm sure everyone would have an easy time following this. He's in love and he wants to start a life with this person - their marriage will be the beginning of perfection, pretty much. It seems very "American Dream"-esque, but more emphasis on his love for her.

    General CommentEssentially it's about a man who is deeply besotted by a woman and he wants to prove that he can fulfil her desires with a ring and wanting to have children. "With a silver ring that will hug you tight"

    General Commentthis song always seemed like the ultimate choice for the end credits of a happy movie. the young couple in love marrying and having children and seeking to lead a happy life and stop any possible disruptions to that life.

    General CommentWhy is this song called Umbrellas? I understand what the song is about just not why Sleeping At Last decided to call it this. Anyone have any ideas?
