Took a long time just to find you there,
I know I said a lot, but you didn't care.
I tried hard to sell myself,
You just laughed and brushed me off.
Then one day you smiled and said my name.
I went back home and nothing's ever gonna be the same
And who could ask for more?

But all week waiting on the weekends, we'll get bored.

I called you up and we talked all night
Ranting and raving how it wasn't right
How geography makes love so hard.
It's oh so cruel to be oh so far
And you've been back and gone again since then.
I just wait around until I see you again
And who could ask for more?

But all week waiting on the weekends, we'll get bored.

So we've grown so close though it's been so hard,
Being so god damn far apart.
We left those lovers who came oh so close
But fell so short, we held out hope.
And this is our award for being brave,
For doing what was right and never playing it safe.
And who could ask for more?

But all week waiting on the weekends, we'll get bored.
All week waiting on the weekends, we'll get bored.
We'll get bored.

    General Commentit really is the cutest ever.

    it's about being in a relationship where you only see your love on the weekends because the week is too busy to be able to be together every day. and how much he's sick of "waiting on the weekends" just to see her.

    but their love is strong, definitely. and it's just so cute =)

    General Commentoh, for the meaning, i think it's about a long distance relationship. not just that their week is busy, but that there's distance between them "geography makes love so hard."

    General CommentThis song is one of my favorites and so perfect if you've ever had a long distance relationship.

    It touches on some of the biggest issues with them such as the distance, and being apart all week. Even the line "all week waiting on the weekends, we'll get bored" Is a big concern to most long distance relationships. A fear they they wont work out because the parties will get "bored" being apart.

    It seems though at the end of the song the couple overcomes the concerns of the distance and receive their "reward for being brave" which is being together.

    My OpinionOmg i love this song. Im in a long distance relationship right now and this song is right on point. I definitely think the award is being together in the end. I also like the part about the other couples becuase i have other friends in situations where their long distance relationship ended and im still holding out hope :)
