It'll Happen
It's gonna happen babe
But it hasn't happened yet
I'm not gonna let you get
Ahead of yourself
It's your Achilles heel
Though I want it bad as you
We've gotta try to see it through
Our own excitement
Your excitement babe
Hasn't let that happen yet
and it won't if you forget
What happened last time

    General CommentIn my current state of mind it has to be about a girl impatient for marriage, but I'm sure it could be about anything.

    General CommentOH, SWEET JEEBUS, this song KILLS!!! though it sounds like a mandolin he's playing, in fact, it's my heart strings! ;)

    yes, ita with Tacet in thinking that it's about telling someone you're in love with to cool their heels. whether it's about beginning an anticipated new relationship, or moving on to the next step, it's a request to slow it down before it falls apart... because, quite frankly, love hurts.

    My InterpretationAlthough I can see this song being about falling in love or marriage, I think it could also be able having a baby.

    It'll Happen
    It's gonna happen babe
    But it hasn't happened yet
    I'm not gonna let you get
    Ahead of yourself
    It's your Achilles heel
    Though I want it bad as you
    We've gotta try to see it through
    Our own excitement

    It seems as though the singer is trying to calm his wife down until they know for sure if she is pregnant. She has always seen herself as a mother and he wants a child just as much as she does.

    Your excitement babe
    Hasn't let that happen yet
    and it won't if you forget
    What happened last time

    They may have been trying for some time to have a child, but it hasn't happened yet. He just doesn't want them to get their hopes up too high only to be let down again.
