"Only One Week" as written by and Jarrod Gorbel....
Have your lips graced another's yet
Or am I the only one?
Every time I try to speak to you
Those are the thoughts that run
Say something else, girl
I don't want to have to leave
Our communication is hardly what it used to be

When can I claim you to be my own, so selfishly?
When can I claim you to be my own, my only?

Want nothing more than our futures to collide
Can tell this is going to be one of many disappointing nights
Traces of you are so minimal
A black and white ?? photobook with us

When can I claim you to be my own, so selfishly?
When can I claim you to be my own, my only?

And I have only one week to make you mine
And I may never see you again
It's not only for me, it's not only me
There's a little bit, a little bit here for you
But I'm willing to wait
I'm willing to wait

Day time is no longer the hours spent
Lit by sunlight ?? the hours to obsess
And the night is far worse
'Cause I know you're alone with her
And thoughts of, of us have been deserted
It'll never be the same
I'll never be the same again
I'll never be the same again

I have only one week to make you mine
And I may never see you again
Time is few and far between
There is someone else who needs
There is someone else who needs your attention
But I'm willing to wait
I'm willing to wait
I'm willing to wait
I'm willing to wait

    General CommentThis is the first song in the album that I immediately took a liking to. As far as what it means, the first half makes sense then I have no idea.

    General CommentI think it's pretty obvious as to what this song means.
    I'm surprised there isn't more comments on this song, it's one of my favourites. I love how his voice gets so strong at some points.

    General CommentYeah this is one of my favorites from the album as well! and yeah it's obvious what it's about. Story of my life. My favorite parts would be: "Want nothing more than our futures to collide
    Can tell this is going to be one of many disappointing nights
    Traces of you are so minimal" and the chorus!

    Oh and those lyrics w/ the question marks are:

    "A black and white bar photo booth with us"

    and

    "Lit by sunlight rather the hours to obsess"

    I love how his voice gets so emotional too!

    General Comment"And the night is far worse
    'Cause I know you're alone with him"

    On the cd, it sounds like he says "alone with her."


    I love love love this song though.
    Probably my favorite on the new cd.

    General Commentit is in fact "alone with HER."
    jarrod told me it's about this girl he was with who was bisexual. and she left him a week before he told me this. for the "her" in the song.

    General CommentOh, that's too bad about the bi girl leaving him.

    I was going to say that I think this song, and actually the feeling of this album, are about dealing with being more in love with your boyfriend/girlfriend than they are with you. Like, with this song, all he wants is for their "futures to collide" but he's going to be disappointed because she's still seeing other girls/guys, so he'll have to wait.
