"Remembering Sunday" as written by Jack Bassam Barakat, Robert Ryan Dawson, Alexander William Gaskarth and Zachary Steven Merrick....
He woke up from dreaming and put on his shoes
Started making his way past 2 in the morning
He hasn't been sober for days

Leaning now into the breeze
Remembering Sunday, he falls to his knees
They had breakfast together
But two eggs don't last
Like the feeling of what he needs

Now this place seems familiar to him
She pulled on his hand with a devilish grin
She led him upstairs, she led him upstairs
Left him dying to get in

Forgive me, I'm trying to find
My calling, I'm calling at night
I don't mean to be a bother,
But have you seen this girl?
She's been running through my dreams
And it's driving me crazy, it seems
I'm going to ask her to marry me

Even though she doesn't believe in love,
He's determined to call her bluff
Who could deny these butterflies?
They're filling his gut

Waking the neighbors, unfamiliar faces
He pleads though he tries
But he's only denied
Now he's dying to get inside

Forgive me, I'm trying to find
My calling, I'm calling at night
I don't mean to be a bother,
But have you seen this girl?
She's been running through my dreams
And it's driving me crazy, it seems
I'm going to ask her to marry me

The neighbors said she moved away
Funny how it rained all day
I didn't think much of it then
But it's starting to all make sense
Oh, I can see now that all of these clouds
Are following me in my desperate endeavor
To find my whoever, wherever she may be

I'm not coming back (forgive me)
I've done something so terrible
I'm terrified to speak (I'm not calling, I'm not calling)
But you'd expect that from me
I'm mixed up, I'll be blunt, now the rain is just (You're driving me crazy, I'm)
Washing you out of my hair and out of my mind
Keeping an eye on the world,
From so many thousands of feet off the ground, I'm over you now
I'm at home in the clouds, and towering over your head

Well I guess I'll go home now
I guess I'll go home now
I guess I'll go home now
I guess I'll go home

    General Commentbasically what i hear from this is a man who loved a woman who, from fear of committment, never admitted her love for him. She went missing, explaining the late night calls the man makes to strangers asking "have you seen this girl" and her neighbors' assumptions that she had moved away. While she was murdered from by her captor, her biggest regret ("I've done something so terrible") was never letting this man know how she truly felt, and leaving him alone without the knowledge of her love. The true tragedy, though, is that the man returns home, having given up on his search for the woman, convinced that she had left because she didn't love him the way he loved her. He did not and may never know that she did indeed love him.

    P.S. The line "I'm over you now" in the woman's part suggests strongly that ay one point, she did have feelings for him.

    General CommentThis is definitely my favorite song by them.
    It's addicting & never gets old.

    My interpretation of this song is that this girl that he loved, she died, but he just can't accept the fact that she did, and is denying the fact that she's dead.
    He still remembers the day, Sunday, when she "disappeared"

    "Forgive me, I'm trying to find my calling
    I'm calling at night
    I don't mean to be a bother
    But have you seen this girl?
    She's been running through my dreams
    And it's driving me crazy, it seems
    I'm gonna ask her to marry me"
    He's looking for her, but he can't find her because she's, well, dead.
    But he won't tell himself that she is.

    "Even though she doesn't believe in love
    He's determined to call her bluff
    Who could deny these butterflies?
    They're filling his gut"
    One of my favorite lines in this song.

    My favorite part is Juliet's part:
    "I'm not coming back
    (Forgive me)
    I've done something so terrible
    I'm terrified to speak
    (I'm not calling, I'm not calling)
    But you'd expect that from me
    I'm mixed up, I'll be blunt
    (You're driving me crazy)
    Now the rain is just washing you out of my hair
    And out of my mind
    Keeping an eye on the world
    From so many thousands of feet off the ground
    I'm over you now
    I'm at home in the clouds, towering over your head"
    I think this part is about his ex-girlfriend's message to him in heaven, hence "in the clouds/towering over your head."
    "I'm over you now" is a wordplay/pun I think, because she's over him like she doesn't love him anymore, but she's also over him because shes up in the clouds in heaven.

    Oh gosh I just love this song so much.

    Song MeaningThis is my favourite song! I believe its about a boy who is so in love with this girl who has a lot of problems. She walks into his life and he ends up falling for her. She then leaves and he isnt in a right place of his own. He starts looking for her everywhere trying to find this girl he loves.

    The girl decides she cant go on anymore and she wants to leave. I personally think she jumps off a bridge because not only could the lyrics "....now the rain is just washing you out of my hair" make me think that its raining and shes thinking of him but she knows he is better off without her. Also the lyrics "From so many thousands of feet off the ground," It could be that it seems that high from the bridge.

    As well as both these lyrics refering to that. The second could also be refered to as if she has already killed herself and she is in heaven "Keeping an eye on the world,
    From so many thousands of feet off the ground, I'm over you now
    I'm at home in the clouds, and towering over your head"

    In the end, the boy realises shes gone for good and "goes home" because he knows he has to move on. He seems to be almost trying to convince himself that its best if he goes home since it repeats the lyrics several times.

    This song is open to interperatation but is also obviously about a boy and a girl. The general story line the song follows isnt hard to follow; Never the less, the song is touching and has a beautiful meaning behind the lyrics.

    General CommentI think that when the girl sings "I'm over you now" it isn't as a relationship. I think she literally is above him, like she's in Heaven. Just an opinion.

    General CommentI always imagine this song in a small house near a lighthouse. The guy in the house "runs" the lighthouse. He lives in a very small town and doesn't get out very much, but he meets this amazing girl that he falls in love with. They have some sort of a relationship (one-night stand or something more serious. i don't know) and he is in love and believes she is too. She leaves one day on a plane ("so many thousands of feet off the ground")and he looses it. Gets drunk starts asking around about her. He doesn't really know many of the neighbors or anyone in town ("unfamiliar faces") so they don't pay him much attention, but "he pleads though he tries but he's only denied".

    Anyway, back to the lighthouse deal. Something about "leaning now, into the breeze" and the rain makes me think of him up at the top of the lighthouse keeping it "running" at two in the morning and/or on his backporch looking out over a stormy ocean with dark blues and greys.

    I could go even more in depth, but I think this is quite long enough. And yes, I know that the song isn't really about Alex and a some girl in a lonely lighthouse village so don't berate me for not having the story right. K?

    General CommentThe song is about a girl that has a one night stand with the guy singing the song. He felt there was more to it than just sex, perhaps she even led him on to an extent. She pretty much just left him in the cold the morning after and he's been trying to get in touch with her ever since and it's tearing him apart. When the girl sings her part, she explains how terrible she feels for leading him on, having the sex, and abruptly leaving... but also the fact that she's over it, over him, and getting on with her life.

    Song MeaningI think it means that the guy beat the girl cuz he was drunk (hasn't been sober for days) or something and then she moved away and he's sorry (i've done something so terrible)... and she fell for someone else (I'm over you now)
