without you there's no reason for my story
and when i'm with you i can always act the same
forever, yeah if we're together
we can make it better

you and i will never get to sleep, we're up all day
we're overworked and underpaid
you and i, we're always talking repeat day by day
watching time drift away as we run away

without you there's no reason for my story
and when i'm with you i can always act the same
forever, yeah if we're together
we can make it better

you and i, we've never felt so right
that just might be just what i need
to get me through the night)
you and i, we're the perfect fit
you've got me hooked
so that i can never quit
i just burn away

without you there's no reason for my story
and when i'm with you i can always act the same
forever, yeah if we're together
we can make it better

oh, oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh
oh, oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh

without you there's no reason for my story
and when i'm with you i can always act the same
forever, yeah if we're together
we can make it, we can make it

without you there's no reason for my story
and when i'm with you i can always act the same
forever, yeah if we're together
we can make it, we can make it

without you there's no reason for my story
and when i'm with you i can always act the same
forever, yeah if we're together
we can make it better

oh, oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh
oh, oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh

    Song MeaningThis song is about a story about a guy and a girl, who where probably good friends for a long time, that fell in love:

    "without you there's no reason for my story
    and when i'm with you i can always act the same
    forever, yeah if we're together
    we can make it better"

    As you can see the guy isn't afraid to express himself when in the presents of the girl, evidence of my good friends theory above^, and not just a random love at first sight girl. Also:

    "you and i, we've never felt so right
    that just might be just what i need
    to get me through the night)
    you and i, we're the perfect fit"

    According to the lyrics they work minimum wage jobs and work long hours to pay off bills or are forced to under chain of command in order to keep their jobs (people that work in min. wage jobs usually take advantage of new employees because they are usually young and new to working and like bossing them around while they slack off.), so they must still be in school, considerably college, and dream of just running away and living happily together:

    "you and i will never get to sleep, we're up all day
    we're overworked and underpaid
    you and i, we're always talking repeat day by day
    watching time drift away as we run away
    "
    So basically its about young love and a dream/plan of running away from responsibility and being happy together! :D

    My OpinionThis is my current favorite song. I love it. It kinda sounds like The Maine, I think, but still Anarbor is their own. But the very first line is my favorite. If that gets stuck in your head, good luck getting it out, haha.

    General Commentthey wrote it for scooby doo, but the basis of the sound is about one of their girldfriends.
