Forever alone
Until I found you
Now you're always there
Voice on the air
Scent on my clothes
Oh, but when the sun
Exposes all my demons
Will you stay, or run away?

I'll help you find your way
Every moment you're awake
You know I'll stay
Even in your dreams
I'll pull the stars down from the heavens
To fill your empty skies
I'm yours tonight
I'm yours tonight

Whenever you go
They say I'm bad news
When everyone agrees
Whispers start sounding like screams
Oh, but I know what you want
To say before the words escape your teeth
Will you trust in me?

I'll help you find your way
Every moment you're awake
You know I'll stay
Even in your dreams
I'll pull the stars down from the heavens
To fill your empty skies
I'm yours tonight
I'm yours tonight

My good intentions
Can leave the hardest hearts
The harshest scars you've ever seen
My bad impressions
They will follow me
Makin' enemies that I can't see

Forever alone
Till I found you
I know that you'll stay
You won't run away

I'll help you find your way
Every moment you're awake
You know I'll stay
Even in your dreams
I'll pull the stars down from the heavens
To fill your empty skies
I'm yours tonight

I'll help you find your way
Every moment you're awake
You know I'll stay
Even in your dreams
I'll pull the stars down from the heavens
To fill your empty skies
I'm yours tonight
(I'm yours tonight)
I'm yours tonight

    General CommentOkay, here goes: I think this is a song about his daughter. Here's why:

    "Forever alone
    Until I found you
    Now you're always there" sounds like he's been by himself, but now has someone to care for.

    "Voice on the air
    Scent on my clothes" Her cries, maybe? And that new baby smell? Like baby powder?

    "Oh, but when the sun
    Exposes all my demons
    Will you stay, or run away?" I believe that this part is about him being afraid of her not liking him or being afraid of him when she grows up.

    "I'll help you find your way
    Every moment you're awake
    You know I'll stay
    Even in your dreams" He's saying that he will always be there for her and that he'll help her through life.

    "I'll pull the stars down from the heavens
    To fill your empty skies" Since she's new, he might be saying that he'll fill her life with good experiences and all of his attention.

    "I'm yours tonight
    I'm yours tonight" Obvious :)

    "Whenever you go
    They say I'm bad news
    When everyone agrees" He thinks that people are afraid of him or disgusted with him.

    "Whispers start sounding like screams" He doesn't want to scare her either, but is afraid he will hurt her.

    "Oh, but I know what you want
    To say before the words escape your teeth
    Will you trust in me?" He hopes that she wants him in her life and that she will trust him.

    "My good intentions
    Can leave the hardest hearts
    The harshest scars you've ever seen
    My bad impressions
    They will follow me
    Makin' enemies that I can't see" He's saying that he's done things he's not proud of in his life, but he doesn't want her to know.

    "Forever alone
    Till I found you
    I know that you'll stay
    You won't run away" He's beginning to realize that she's his daughter and will always love him.

    Then the chorus, same as before.

    My description is very corny, I know, but it's such a sweet song, and I love it. Also supporting my theory are the chimes and piano in the background, almost making it sound like a lullaby.

    I don't know. Just my thoughts. Anyone else think so?

    My Interpretation"Oh, but when the sun
    Exposes all my demons
    Will you stay around for us?"

    I believe this song is about how William obviously has had many girls, and that he sees how that might scare this girl off that the song is written to. When she discovers his past, will she stay with him, trust in him? Sometimes when people start talking, it's hard to defend your decisions.

    "My good intentions
    Can leave the hardest hearts
    The harshest scars you've ever seen
    My bad impressions
    They will follow me
    Makin' enemies that I can't see"

    It's not that he wants to be a player, he has good intentions, but even though girls are left with broken hearts. This follows him, cos people often dislike you if you've had many partners. That's how it is with him. But so he continues to explain that he was alone until he found her. It wasn't love with the other girls, this time it is different. He promises to "help you find your way every moment you're awake", and that's one hell of a big promise.

    He's serious this time, and hopes that she'll see how him having had a lot of partners has nothing to do with his situation with her now.

    Love the meaning. I think it's very true.

    General Commenti agree with klgbeatnik, this song is definately a relief after fast times at barrington high.. they almost started to sound generic, it worried me. but i knew william would come up with something to grab our hearts once again. =]
    this is a great song. but there is one part bothering me that i cant figure out. there is a background part...
    The harshest scars you've ever seen [******************]
    ....
    Makin' enemies that I can't see [**************]
    anyone know what goes right there? thanks.

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful and catchy.
    I agree with Wealllovethem MCR;
    I think it's about the mistakes he's made in the past and now he's found the one and he's asking her to trust him despite his past.
