"Always Attract" as written by Josh Franceschi, Dan Flint, Max Helyer, Matt Barnes and Chris / Miller....
If it hurts this much then it must be love
And it's a lottery, I can't wait to draw your name
Oh, I'm trying to get to you but time isn't on my side
If the truth's the worst I can do then I guess that I have lied

Keeping me awake, it's been like this now for days
My heart is out at sea, my head all over the place
I'm losing sense of time and everything tastes the same
I'll be home in a day, I fear that's a month too late

That night I slept on your side of the bed
So it was ready when you got home
We're like noughts and crosses
In that opposites always attract

You've taken me to the top and let me fall back south
You've had me at the top of the pile and then had me kissing the ground
We've heard and seen it all, no one's talked us out
The problems that have come haven't yet torn us down

Am I keeping you awake? If I am then just say
You can make your own decisions, you can make your own mistakes
I'll live and let die all the promises you made
But if you lie another time it'll be a lie that's too late

That night I slept on your side of the bed
So it was ready when you got home
We're like noughts and crosses
In that opposites always attract

You always have your way
For now it's too soon for you to say will we be always, always
You always have your way
For now it's too soon for you to say will we be always, always

You always have your way
For now it's too soon for you to say will we be always, always
You always have your way
For now it's too soon for you to say will we be always, always, always

You always have your way
For now it's too soon for you to say will we be always, always
You've had your way, you've had your way
You've had your way

    General Commenti love this song.
    its about being in love with someone who is indecisive and all over the place, but loving them through all of that because your the sensible one that trys to keep them grounded :)
    thats my interpretation, 'opposites always attract'/

    General CommentI'm thinking relationships, the guy in the song being so in love with the girl.
    Hence, "it's a lottery, I can't wait to draw your name."

    They fought because of the girl's lies, and the girl left. But he's left hurting, but convinced this relationship means something.

    "Oh I'm trying to get to you, but time isn't on my side." Could mean that hes trying to see the girl beneath the clothes, trying understand/get into her heart. but as time passes shes slipping away.

    Hes hung up on her, closed his heart "My heart is out at sea" , dead confused and messed up. "Head all over the place".

    He thinks he'll be emotionally ready to deal with it "tomorrow" but is afraid that tomorrow will come too late.

    And it goes on how she goes about playing him hot and cold
    "You've taken me to the top and let me fall right back south.
    You've had me at the top of the pile and then had me kissing the ground."

    So he wonders if the girls kept awake by what he said, because he pointed her mistakes out and exaggerated them in their argument
    "If the truth is the worse I could do, then I guess that I have lied."

    but he believes they will get through it, as they've always gotten by in the past.
    "We've heard and seen it all and no ones talked us out.
    The problems that have come haven't yet torn us down,"

    In the end, both parties believe each other manipulates their words, not putting in their 100percent into the relationship for the fear of getting hurt.
    "You always have your way, for now it's too soon for you to say, will we be always always."

    In the end, both are left questioning whether they would be "always always".

    General CommentI think there is someone who knows he is in love and the person who he is in love with loves him too and they can't be together but desperatley want to but there is things stopping them and gradually they grow apart and one thinks about the other way too much and still loves them whilst the other thinks about them abit and how they wasted and threw their relationship away because of the stupid things and the one in love looks back on this and everyday thinks abot them more and more and wishes they couldve been together.

    General CommentI don't get how this resembles Remembering Sunday. If anything, at the beginning he sounds like the singer from The Wedding. Just because the girl comes in near the end doesn't mean it's ATL. They suck. YMAS is far from that. This song is beautiful =]

    General Commentthis is beyond beautifullll, love it!
    but i reckon its to do with being in love with someone when it seems inappropriate (noughts and crosses) and i'm guessing its to do with the problems that come with being in a relationship and a band? Just my take
