"Sweet Disposition" as written by and Lorenzo Sillito Abby Mandagi....
Sweet disposition
Never too soon
Oh, reckless abandon
Like no one's watching you
A moment a love
A dream aloud
A kiss a cry
Our rights
Our wrongs
A moment, a love
A dream aloud
A moment, a love
A dream, aloud

So stay there
'Cause I'll be coming over
And while our blood's still young
It's so young, it runs
And won't stop til it's over
Won't stop to surrender

Songs of desperation
I played them for you
A moment, a love
A dream aloud
A kiss, a cry
Our rights
Our wrongs
A moment, a love
A dream aloud
A moment, a love
A dream aloud

Stay there
'Cause I'll be coming over
And while our blood's still young
It's so young, it runs
And won't stop til it's over
Won't stop to surrender

And won't stop til it's over
Won't stop til it's over
Won't stop til it's over
Won't stop to surrender

    General CommentQ: "So what's the song really about?"
    A: " When we're young, we act first and think later. But as adults, we rationalize everything. Basically, the song is about capturing the innocence of youth." - In NYLON NOV 09

    General CommentThis is a song I can constantly listen to and not really get tired of. Australia has been pumping out the most amazing music for the past couple of years; cut copy, digitalism, oh mercy, clue to kalo, and many more have made my new favorites list. As for this song, it is very Bill Joel reminiscent but packed with so much more feeling and power.

    General CommentI rode back home from college with 3 very close friends, driving through the fields on that familiar path home, the windows down and the wind rushing through the car, blasting this song, our hair flying. It was one of the most incredible moments of my life, it encompassed everything I was feeling in that moment.

    First, the buildup makes you think of things all starting-- to me, the excitement of an adventure, sharing the song and moment with friends, thinking of all the rest of the beautiful moments we would have together. And nostalgic, going home for the first time in so long, so weird to be going back to a life we used to live, the houses we grew up in, our parents, our dogs, our streets with the kids playing, feeling so profoundly different from the person you were when this was your life.

    This song is about being stuck between then and now. Who are you, really, in this moment? What can you know, more than what you feel? "A moment, a love, A dream aloud,A kiss, a cry, Our rights, our wrongs" << all the little things that give life meaning, feeling alive when the emotions that accompany these things rush over you. Just feeling so alive.

    Song MeaningDisposition is a habit..something or someone you always go back to(in this case I believe someone)..reckless abandon is just the opposite, getting away from that habit or set of friends..so you can be someone else(like no one's watching you that knows you)..so if you have something or someone you love and is your sweet disposition and then you can abandon them(get away from them(a set of friends or your place in the life of those people)..so when he says 'just stay there' he's away from them all or her or his habit(whatever he loves) and wants her/him/it to stay there because he'll be going back to it.It's about being young as well and enjoying these moments of life that he's having with people. Songs of desperation..what a great theme..aren't we all desperate in your youth...not having this and that..one day we'll be older and have the spouse/career..all that security..but we'll have lost our youth..so while our blood is young we should enjoy what we do have which is each other's love/friendship/etc..very inspirational

    General CommentSo this is my view on the song, don't bitch if you disagree.

    Its about people in their youth - obviously - and about all the things they go through, the fun, the first experiences, the first love and relationship. I reckon that its about a couple who are in love, even though they are young and reckless, and are trying to stay together and live through their youth together without... breaking up? That's where you get the whole "So stay there, cause I'll be coming over"

    But that being said, they are living up their teenage years at the same time. So there will be moments of "our rights, our wrongs". Dunno... I've kinda lost what I was getting at.

    Still, in the end this is what I pick up; Youth, first love, and living through their youth together, through all their rights and wrongs.

    General CommentNot gonna lie, heard this song for the first time watching (500) Days of Summer (awesome movie, go see it) and fell in love with it. Does anyone else think it sounds a lot like Angels & Airwaves (the intro does at least)?

    I think this song is about not only living for the moment, but sharing it with someone else.

    It's life.
