"Vegas Skies" as written by Butch Walker, Alexander Deleon, Alex Marshall, Ian Crawford, Cash Colligan and Alex Johnson....
It's twelve o' clock and I need your attention
It's like the alcohol making my head spin
Your scent is the rum in the bottle
Keeping me hopeless 'til I wake tomorrow

And if tonight ever makes a difference
The way that I feel the way that I'll remember it
I'll take this down until the glass remains
Swallow the words that I was meant to say

It's a long drive back to Vegas skies
So I don't, I make one more wrong turn tonight so

[Chorus]
Say goodnight our first goodbye
I've only got forever and forever is fine
Just take your time
We'll stop the clock together
And know that the timing was right

All of these guards they stand tall and defensive
Putting up walls around what was once innocent
It won't let me in but I'm stronger than that
Cause you stole my eyes and I'll never look back

Girl last night I forgot to mention
The way that I feel the way that I'll remember this
When we're this young we have nothing to lose
We just the clock to beat and a hand to choose

It's a long drive back to Vegas skies
So I don't, I make one more wrong turn tonight so

[Chorus]

It's a long way down
Just fall into place and you'll fall into me
We'll make it out you'll see

[Chorus: x2]

    General Comment"Vegas skies is about a beautiful young girl named Logan Elizabeth.

    I was in high school, and being the spontaneous little kid that I was, me and my buddy Matt decided to leave town. So we packed our bags and headed to Laguna. I know most of you probably associate Laguna Beach with the reality show with the over dramatic girls arguing over who kissed who and who’s nails were what color and when they were done. But to be honest..I find that painfully sad. Laguna is an incredibly beautiful little beach town; filled with character, history, and fun. Just when I thought the little beach town couldn’t be anymore beautiful…I met Logan. She was amazing. Amazing smile. Turquiose eyes. A laugh more memorable than any song I had ever heard. But there was a problem…she was with another guy. We talked..and I knew immediately that she was one of a kind. It broke my heart that she was taken…but I respected it and a few days later I left Laguna…with nothing but the memory of her. I never forgot about that smile. Not once.

    When we talked in Laguna..she would tell me about how unhappy she was with everything. Her life..the cruel, pompous guy she was with, and may other things. I wanted to save her. I wanted to be there for her. My heart was broken into a million pieces when I found out she couldn’t be mine. But I stayed strong and never forgot about her. This girl made me laugh, smile, and smile some more. I felt like I was a better person having met her and spent a few days with her. Logan was my miracle, and I was determined to wait as long as it took, forever if I had to, to call her mine.

    When things get hard for me…I write songs. This time was no different. I wrote the chorus first… I told myself that I would wait forever for her. I would wait until it was our time to be together…and I did wait. For a few years. That’s what the lyrics “I’ve only got forever and forever is fine.”

    When you’re in love… Forever is nothing. To wait forever for love is no time at all..because when it finally does come, it is met with the most breathtaking feeling imaginable. If you haven’t felt what love and to be loved feels like..then you’re missing out on the best this world has to offer. So the words “I’ve only got forever, and forever is fine. Just take your time” were just saying that I would wait as long as it took to be with her. You can’t give up on love, because I promise love will never give up on you. It didn’t give up on me…

    Years later I saw her again, and this time..we weren’t going to leave each other’s side. From there it was history. Waiting for love, had paid off and it made me the happiest boy in the entire world."

    General Commenti think this song is about a girl who isnt ready for a relationship and he is in love with her so he will wait forever for her.
    orrr maybe he hurt her (the whole guard thing) and is waiting for her to go back to him because he knows they are meant to be.
    idkk maybe not

    General CommentI love the part when he sings,
    "Just take your time
    We'll stop the clock together
    And know that the timing was right"

    As for meaning, rockstar316 might have the idea down. I don't know. This song is quite pretty though (:

    General CommentSounds like an obsession over a girl, and finding it impossible to let go. He meets a girl for the first time and is his world "So say goodnight, our first goodbye. I've only get forever and forever is fine.

    He does sound like he would wait forever and it seems the line "So why don't I make one more wrong turn tonight?" could have something to do with the whole Vegas idea of marriage.

    Lots of ideas backing it up.

    General CommentI might know what girl this is about
    I live in vegas and a senior I know dates the lead singer. But idk, he may have written this before dating her.

    Either way I love this song, it gives me such pride knowing we're from the same city. :]

    They're amazing
