This is where I wanna be
When the violent sky just opens up
To reveal the sun
And shine a little light on our friends

Cause that'll be the day
When we're swimming through the rays in love
Making the most of what we got
Before it ends

This is your one chance
Hell if you'll waste it
I can't let it happen
I love you too much

Then you'll see
It's like rain on a beautiful day
All the clouds go away
And we're just singing and playing and alright
Then you'll know
No matter where the wind blows us
We've always got each other
And we're dancing this dance on time

This is where I wanna be
When that summer sun comes crashing down
And makes that autumn sound
That rings out and carries us through winter

Cause that's the only way
That we'll make it through the biting cold
Yeah, if we hold close to the warmth
That resonates in our bones

I know you're a lot stronger than
They give you credit for
Riding your vital signs to the floor
So you can get back up and beg for more

This is your one chance
Hell if you'll waste it
I can't let it happen
I love you too much

Then you'll see
It's like rain on a beautiful day
All the clouds go away
And we're just singing and playing and alright
Then you'll know
No matter where the wind blows us
We've always got each other
And we're dancing this dance on time
Feeling fine

It's true, it's true, it's true, it's true

It's true
What I'm saying could save you
It's true
What I'm saying could save you
It's true, it's true
It's true
What I'm saying could save you

Then you'll see
It's like rain on a beautiful day
All the clouds go away
And we're just singing and playing and alright
Then you'll know
No matter where the wind blows us
We've always got each other
And we're dancing this dance on time

This is your one chance
Hell if you'll waste it
I can't let it happen
I love you too much

No matter where the wind blows us
We've always got each other
And we're dancing this dance on time

This is your one chance
Hell if you'll waste it
I can't let it happen
I love you too much

(Feeling fine)

This is your one chance
Hell if you'll waste it
I can't let it happen
I love you too much

    General CommentI have no clue what the guys truly wrote this song about...but what it makes me think of is two people who are in love, and one of them leaves for a great opportunity somewhere else...

    "This is where i wanna be" like he wants to be wherever she is in that moment. Maybe he knows eventually they'll be separated but for now he wants to stay with her ("Making the most of what we got before it ends")

    Then it seems like he's trying to convince her and himself it's best for her to take the opportunity (job or college or wherever) "This is your one chance/ Hell if you'll waste it/ I can't let it happen/ I love you too much"...yes, he wants to be with her, but he loves her enough to want what's best for her. "No matter where the wind blows us/ we've always got eachother/ and we're dancing this dance on time."

    Then in the second verse when he says "This is where I wanna be/ when the summer sun comes crashing down/ and makes that autumn sound...cause that's the only way/ that we'll make it through the biting cold/ yeah if we hold close to the warmth/ that resonates in our bones" If you related this to her going away for college, for example, it's like he's saying in autumn when she's gone he'll miss her and want her to be with him, but they'll be able to hold on if they just think of the "warmth" of summer instead of the "biting cold" of winter.

    At the bridge, then, "what i'm saying could save you" could simply mean he wants her to understand that this is what's right for her.

    i don't think that's what they were going for, but it does kinda fit. I do get what justpassingthrough was saying though, it would make sense taken as someone attempting suicide too.

    General CommentI think that the song is about living your life free from responsibility. It is about not being held down by everything in the world, and doing what you want instead of what everyone else wants you to do.
