Do you remember the nights we
Stayed up, just laughing
Smiling for hours at anything?
Remember the nights we
Drove around crazy in love?

When the lights go out
We'll be safe and sound
We'll take control of the world
Like it's all we have to hold on to
And we'll be a dream

Do you remember the nights we
Made our way dreaming
Hoping of being someone big?
We were so young then
We were too crazy in love

When the lights go out
We'll be safe and sound
We'll take control of the world
Like it's all we have to hold on to
And we'll be a dream

When the lights go out
(And when the lights go out)
We'll be safe and sound
(We'll be safe and sound)
We'll take control of the world
Like it's all we have to hold on to
And we'll be
(And we'll be)

When the lights go out
(And when the lights go out)
We'll be safe and sound
We'll take control of the world
Like it's all we have to hold on to
And we'll be a dream

    Song Meaningi think it's pretty clear what the song is saying, but i love how poetic it sounds.
    especially:
    "When the lights go out
    We'll be safe and sound"

    so it's basically a relationship that ended for some reason, but it's something really sentimental, something that the two people would want to remember, since it's a lot of "do you remember", and then
    "We were so young then
    We were too crazy in love"
    simple, but meaningful lines.

    General CommentI honestly thought this song was by Paramore for a while. Never was a huge fan of WTK or Demi, but their voices sound so strong in this, my opinion just might change. :)

    I think the song is a reminiscence of a young relationship and even though they don't have each other anymore, they'll still be "safe and sound" and be able to go on their own paths; until the relationship is distant and surreal enough to be a dream. Although I really like demilovers' interpretation as well.

    My OpinionI have to say I love how Demi sounds in this song, even if Im not a fan of hers. But I love the sound of her voice.
    Thank you We the Kings, the lyrics are very heartwarming.

    General CommentMy interpretation of this song, is that there is a couple who are still together, but no longer experience the "in love" feeling, but still love each other very much. This couple are older now and are going through changes in their relationship and are experiencing a lot of difficulties that they aren't used to. This couple just wants to get away from all the tough things and be together. The verses are the couple reminiscing the times they were experiencing the "in love" feeling when things were easier. And the chorus is them now, getting away from the world and all the hard things they are going through and just being together in a very personal, intimate(not sexual) way they haven't had in a while, just loving each other in a safe place. :) Tell me what you think!

    Song MeaningAre you mind?
    The song is all about the future a couple ("We'll Be A Dream"!!!) remembering the old days when they loved each other crazily. They still love each other and want to "take control of the world" together, witch means living together, having their own house and passing by life's things.

    General CommentI was listening to this and I kept thinking it was Hayley Williams singing not Demi. Demi sounds a lot like Hayley in this.
