"Meet Me Half Way" as written by Stacy Ferguson, Keith Ernesto Harris, William Adams, Allan Pineda, Jaime Gomez, Jean Baptiste, Sylvia Gordon, Printz Board, Brian Chase, Karen Orzolek and Nicholas Zinner....
I can't go any further than this
I want you so badly, it's my biggest wish

I spent my time just thinking thinking thinking bout you
Every single day yes, I'm really missin' missin' you
And all those things we use to use to use to do
Hey girl, whats up, it use, it use to be just me and you
I spent my time just thinking thinking thinking 'bout you
Every single day, yes I'm really missing missing you
And all those things we use to use to use to do
Hey girl whats up, whats up, whats up, whats up

Can you meet me halfway, right at the borderline
Is where I'm gonna wait, for you
I'll be looking out, night n' day
Took my heart to the limit, and this is where I stay
I can't go any further than this
I want you so bad it's my only wish

Girl, I travel round the world and even sail the seven seas
Across the universe I go to other galaxies
Just tell me where to go, just tell me where you wanna to meet
I navigate myself myself to take me where you be
Cause girl I want, I, I, I want you right now
I travel uptown town I travel downtown
I wanna to have you around round like every single day
I love you alway' ways

Can you meet me half way (I'll meet you halfway)
Right at the borderline
That's where I'm gonna wait, for you
I'll be looking out, night n' day
Took my heart to the limit, and this is where I'll stay
I can't go any further than this
I want you so bad it's my only wish
I can't go any further than this
I want you so bad it's my only wish

Let's walk the bridge, to the other side
Just you and I (just you and I)
I will fly, I'll fly the skies, for you and I (for you and I)
I will try, until I die, for you and I, for you and I, for for you and I,
For for you and I, for for you and I, for you and I

Can you meet me half way
Can you meet me half way
Can you meet me half way
Can you meet me half way

Meet me half way, right at the borderline
That's where I'm gonna wait, for you
I'll be looking out, night n' day
Took my heart to the limit, and this is where I'll stay
I can't go any further than this
I want you so bad it's my only wish
I can't go any further than this
I want you so bad it's my only wish

    My InterpretationI think its about two people in a relationship who've had a fight that could tear them apart and need each other to "meet halfway" - aka compromise or try harder at fixing things.

    I also think its a part of the song where the girl is willing to compromise (the chorus), and the guy is only just realizing what he could loose if he chooses to be stubborn/lazy (I spent my time just thinking, thinking, thinking about you/Every single day yes, I'm really missing, missing you/And all those things we use to, use to, use to do).

    My OpinionI think it is defintely about compromise in a relationship. Waiting at the borderline is expressing she is waiting at the 1/2 way mark.

    I think he could be all talk but no action. Sometimes men say so much and sweep a woman off her feet initially but then when you realize it, you can not go any further with the relationship. Some men can not go past that point and it is like being in two seperate realities.

    Also could be a man who is over the top and wants way to much from the relationship, expressing to the woman needs she can not live up too.

    But I think it is definitely about two people who are in love but are at a cross road and they are being stubborn. More so the man because she is the one asking to meet her half way...lying alone in a paradise that they could be in if their was compromise. They are both suffering none the less and want to be with one another. But in love wanting to be with someone is not always a healthy desire, especially if there is lack of balance. :)

    General CommentI think it's about two people who once had a meaningful relationship with each other (could be a friendship or more intimate) and overtime there was a disconnect between the two. He's telling her how much he misses her and how he wants her around and she's reaching out to him saying I'm doing my part; meet me half way, and he's claiming he is too (by saying he's willing to travel to all these different, and in some cases exaggerated places to reach her) but really it's a bunch of smoke and mirrors. At one point he even says "Tell me where you wanna meet" as if she hasn't been saying the entire time.

    General CommentFirst off, awesome song.

    Next, the meaning. I'll take a shot in the dark with this one. I'm thinking it could be about friends, and it was perhaps turning into something more (For the sake of conversation I'll assume Fergie's the girl's POV and so forth), and the girl felt it. She confesses her feelings/devotion to him and the guy has no idea how to react, so they fall out for a while.

    The guy realises he loves and misses her, ("I spent my time just thinkin thinkin thinkin bout you, every single day yes, I'm really missin' missin' you") but is perhaps a little afraid to make the leap. The girl really wants them to be together, but there's only so much she can do ("Took my heart to the limit, and this is where I'll stay, I can't go any further than this, I want you so bad it's my only wish").

    All she can really hope now is that he'll get off his pedestal and meet her halfway. In the meantime, she'll be waiting.

    General CommentThis song samples both "When You Were Young" by The Killers and "Maps" by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs if I'm not mistaken... right?

    General Commenti would think it would mean meeting halfway to fall in love cause it takes two to fall in love and you have to meet in the middle.... that's just what i got first time listening to it.

    General Commenti definitely agree with shelly247's interpretation, which ironically describes my life at this very moment.
