I don’t know if it’s love but I love how this feels
Let’s swear this in blood
sweep it under the rug
But let’s make a deal to not get carried away
I don’t know what Sampson said
but I have broad shoulders
And both your eyes met mine
And I promise you
And everything could work out fine
if you want it to

I’ve failed in the past, but damned to repeat
But I saw God smile back
through each sidewalk crack
and it crossed on your street
But I got carried away, I got carried away
I can shoulder this weight
cause I have broad shoulders
Place your hands in mine and I promise you
That everything could work out fine
if you want it to

And I forgive you your past
if you forgive mine
We can’t choose who we love
if God’s chosen us from above
And if man couldn’t die
I’m not sure that I would try
And if she dared to find
that I don’t really mind
And I know what you’re thinking of
That I have broad shoulders
that I have broad shoulders

Lets make a pact that everyone’s wrong
And whatever the cost we can’t turn this off
And it wont be long till we get carried away
Get carried away
I don’t know what to say
but I have broad shoulders

We can’t choose who we love
if God’s chosen us from above
And if man couldn’t die
I’m not sure that I would try
And if she dared to find
that I don’t really mind
And I know what you’re thinking of
That I have broad shoulders
that I have broad shoulders

If your eyes met mine and I promise you
That everything could work out fine
if you want it to
Place your hands in mine and I promise you
That everything could work out fine
if you want it to

We can’t choose who we love
if God’s chosen us from above
And if man couldn’t die
I’m not sure that I would try
And if she dared to find
that I don’t really mind
And I know what you’re thinking of
That I have broad shoulders
that I have broad shoulders

    General CommentSo I just added the lyrics the other night even though the EP has been out for almost 2 years now. Anyways, I think the song meaning is pretty literal. This person is experiencing a new or young relationship. He does not want to repeat the mistakes of the past relationships and he finds himself sometimes getting carried away with those same actions or thoughts as before. But, he has broad shoulders meaning he can handle it this time around and not get "carried away." Also there are religious references, Sampson and God, Sampson being one of the first heroes in the Bible (Book of Judges chapters 13 to 16).
