Lets turn the lights down low, oh
Turn the lights down, I got a movie
We can watch until you fall asleep on my chest
So tell me right now, oh
So tell me right now, is there any place
You'd rather be other than here, lets forget the rest
And I swear I swear when I first saw you
And talked to you, you'd give me purpose
With every single word you'd say
You took my breath away

I am so high I'm never coming down
Because you're mine, and you've decided to stay around
And as time is taken away, you stay the same, you stay the same
You stay here with me

And our futures are splitting us apart as we speak
We'll get to that when it comes around
None of that really matters now
Because you're here with me
So tell me you love me, because it makes me feel alive
For the first time
I love you too

Tell me how long we have up here
Away from everything we fear
Cause I don't wanna come back down tonight
I swear I will fight until we're the last to stand
Until it's you left holding my hand
And oh our love will burn so bright

    My Interpretationlove this song,
    it pretty much means how much he loves someone, & how "I am so high I'm never coming down
    Because you're mine, and you've decided to stay around"
    he feels so high when hes with this girl, and "never coming down" because he thinks hes found the one, & she completes him.

    Lyric CorrectionSo, turn the lights down low
    Turn the lights down
    I got a movie we can watch until you fall asleep on my chest
    So tell me right now
    So tell me right now
    Is there any place that you'd rather be other than here?
    Lets forget the rest
    And I swear, I swear
    When I first saw you and talked to you
    You gave me purpose with every single word you'd say
    You took my breath away

    I am so high
    I am never coming down
    Because you're mine
    You decided to stay, decided to stay around
    And as time is ticking away
    You stay the same, you stay the same
    You stay here with me

    And our futures are splitting us apart as we speak
    We'll get to that when it comes around
    None of that really matters now
    Because you're here with me
    So tell me you love me
    'Cause it makes me feel alive
    For the first time
    I love you too

    Tell me how long we have up here
    Away from everything we fear
    'Cause I don't wanna come back down tonight
    I swear, I will fight until we're the last to stand
    Until it's you left holding my hand
    And our love, our love will burn so bright
