"Where Would We Be?" as written by Joel Madden, Benji Madden and Billy Martin....
I smile, you laugh, I look away
I sigh, you ask me why, I say,
It's ok and I am just feeling down
Your hand on mine I hear the words
If only love had found us first, our lives they would be different

But that was not the plan, oh

Where would we be now baby, if we found each other first
Where would you do now darlin', if I said these simple words
I'll wait
I'll wait, as long as you want

And now I must confess
That I am a sinking ship
I'm anchored by the weight of my heart cause it's filled with these feelings
I keep my true thoughts locked beside my hearts black box
And it wont be found, it wont survive through the smoke or the wreckage
So I guess I'll crash and burn

Where would we be now baby, if we found each other first
What would you do now darlin', if I said these simple words
I'll wait, I'll wait, as long as you want.

Where would we be now baby

I'll wait
I'll wait

Where would we be now baby, if we found each other first
What would you do now darling, if I said these simple words
I'll wait, I'll wait, as long as you want.

Where would we be now baby
I'll wait
I'll wait
I'll wait
I'll wait

    General CommentMy current situation rolls out in song yet again :<

    To me this song is about two people who are in love, but one of them is already in a relationship, and isn't willing to risk what they already have.

    The singer (in terms of my situation at the moment that would be me), chooses to accept that but secretly hopes they'll break up on their own so he can have his chance.

    General Commentyea.. the piano part in the chorus does sound like clocks.. don't really care if they're ripping them off, this song still rocks

    I think this song is about regret. he says he kept his true thoughts locked then he crashes and burn. by the time he decides to confess his feelings to the girl, its too late and she's gone. he's left thinking, if only..

    i think alot of us can relate to this song. great song.
