You’ve got this thing in your mind that it’s all for the best
I’ve got this thing in mind that starts from the chest
Breathing forced, reading lines out of touch
Time was a thing that we thought was a thing that we had
I’m getting waist high, I'm half full, starting to flood
I don’t want this thing to overload

If you believe what's said in secret
Says to me when I ask you now

Do you wanna dance tonight?
Do you wanna cross the line?
When i tripped and i fell i landed straight at your feet
From down here the line is looking blurry tonight

Well blurry lines in my eyes that were willing to cross
Well blurry lines make me feel uneasy
Heart wanting sweet talking reasons I’m over the line

Oh lying alone is the worst but it’s all for the best
It could be worse we could both be lying
Even with miles to go I still wouldn’t ever know starting going down by the head

But you’re alive both safe and stable
Let me in and sail away for you

You are the chance tonight
You are across the line
When I tripped and I fell out of line straight at your feet
From down here the line looking blurry tonight

If you believe whats said is secret
Says to me when I ask you now

    Lyric CorrectionI think
    "Breathing forced, reading lines out of touch"
    should be
    "Reading forced, reading lines means I'm out of time."

    "I�m getting wasted high on (?) starting to flirt"
    should be
    "I'm getting waist high, I'm awful; starting to flirt." [or half-full, not awful]

    "I don�t want this thing to overload."
    should be
    "I don't want this thing to overflow."

    "Well blurry lines make me feel uneasy"
    should be
    "Well blurry minds make me feel uneasy"

    "Oh lying alone is the worst but it�s all for the best"
    should be
    "Oh lying alone; feelings wrong, but it�s all for the best"

    "Even with miles to go I still wouldn�t ever know starting going down by the head"
    should be
    "Even with miles of road I still wouldn't have a hope; starting going down by the head."

    "But you�re alive both safe and stable"
    should be
    "But you're a life boat; safe and stable"

    But I might just be totally wrong.

    General CommentYou've got this thing in your mind and it's all for the best
    I've got this thing in mine and it starts from the chest beating
    Force feeding lines meaning I'm out of time
    Time was a thing that we thought was a thing that we had
    I'm getting waist high, I'm half full, starting to flood
    I don't want this thing to overflow

    If you believe what's said in secret
    Say yes to me when I ask you now

    Do you want to dance tonight?
    Do you want to cross the line?
    Well I tripped and I fell and landed straight at your feet
    From down here I'd say the line's looking blurry to none

    Well blurry lines in my eyes make me willing to cross
    But blurry minds make me feel uneasy
    Heart warming, sweet talking reasons I'm over the line
    Lying alone feels wrong but it's all for the best
    It could be worse, we could both be lying
    Even with miles of rope, i still wouldn't have a hope
    Iif I started going down by the head

    But you're a lifeboat, safe and stable
    Let me in, a sail away for two

    Do you want to dance tonight?
    Do you want to cross the line?
    Well I tripped and I fell and landed straight at your feet
    From down here I'd say the line's looking blurry to none

    If you believe what's said in secret
    Say yes to me when I ask you now

    Do you want to dance tonight?
    Do you want to cross the line?
    Well I tripped and I fell and landed straight at your feet
    From down here I'd say the line's looking blurry to none

    Do you want to dance tonight?
    Do you want to cross the line?
    Well I tripped and I fell and landed straight at your feet
    From down here I'd say the line's looking blurry to none

    General Commentfirst off- i find this song to be absolutely beautiful. the companion video is great as well (the band is yummy). the main thing that i found alluring was the tune itself, the vocalists fluctuations and rhythms, and how catchy the overall sound was. and then i realized how great the lyrics were so i wanted to take the time to share my analyzation... seeing as no one else has

    basically this is a song about a boy and girl liking each other, but it's one of those situations where both are unsure about how the other feels about them (who's going to make the first move?!) the footing is uneasy..


    bare with me as i am going to jump from part to part

    You've got this thing in your mind and it's all for the best (clear headed intentions of liking him)
    I've got this thing in mine and it starts from the chest beating (more of an internal pull from the heart- love vs. lust?)
    Force feeding lines meaning I'm out of time (spittin his game out of desperation! obviously there's some obstacle between them- time crunch?)
    Time was a thing that we thought was a thing that we had (didn't realize that there was going to be a possible hinderance)
    I'm getting waist high, I'm half full, starting to flood (the pressure is building, being reminded that the opportunity might slip away)
    I don't want this thing to overflow (doesn't want to lose his chance and for everything to go wrong and out of his control)

    If you believe what's said in secret (since they're playing the game of i like you and i think you might like you back, word has probably come across to her that he likes her- this is the secret)
    Say yes to me when I ask you now (then trust me and let's finally be together since i actually care for you)

    Do you want to dance tonight? (do you want to actually make this happen- courtship)
    Do you want to cross the line? (change the nature of their relationship, do the daring thing)
    Well I tripped and I fell and landed straight at your feet (fell for you, would now do anything for you)
    From down here I'd say the line's looking blurry to none (and in his current disposition, he can't tell where she stands- 'line's looking blurry'- hard to tell what she wants)

    Well blurry lines in my eyes make me willing to cross (hard to tell, but it's still encouraging so he's going to gather the courage and try to make it happen)
    But blurry minds make me feel uneasy (but yet her ambivalence is still making me nervous about making moves on her)
    Heart warming, sweet talking reasons I'm over the line (she is encouraging him to make the moves though, by flirting and sweet talking- all dat cute stuff)
    Lying alone feels wrong but it's all for the best (now he's thinking that he's the only one that's trying to tell themselves that they're not into the other person- a sort of defense mechanism to keep from getting hurt in case of rejection)
    It could be worse, we could both be lying (since she's not into him, she doesn't have to lie to herself- because if she were, then that would be a case of a lost opportunity)
    Even with miles of rope, i still wouldn't have a hope (even with the encouragement it would be useless, she's not into him)
    Iif I started going down by the head

    But you're a lifeboat, safe and stable (you are something that would make me happy, something that would make his life better)
    Let me in, a sail away for two (let's be together and do this together)

    Do you want to dance tonight? - already explained the rest...
