The words that no one speaks
About the night before
She stares off at the road
Her finger taps the door
I'd hate to judge if roles reverse you'd think so too

She'd seen the film before
But stayed until the end
She had him to herself
Perhaps as more than friends
Maybe I'd do things differently if I were you

[CHORUS:]
Your pulse it races with mine and I swear that there's no other girl
Your body shakes, it's like tonight we can take the world
Your pulse it races with mine and I swear we can take the world

His hand against her cheek
Her tongue against his neck
She says "you're awfully sweet, I feel like we connect"
Maybe it's love. How would she know?
And did she tell?

The clothes they go on slow
She thinks of what to say
He whispers in her ear
She smiles and looks away
Her heart it screams she grabs his hand and says "me too"

[CHORUS:]
Your pulse it races with mine and I swear that there's no other girl
Your body shakes, it's like tonight we can take the world
Your pulse it races with mine and I swear we can take the world

Is this the life the one you imagined
Is this the life, the one from your dreams
[repeat 5x]
([VO at 3x:] the boy meets girl and a girl meets a boy)

[CHORUS:]
Your pulse it races with mine and I swear that there's no other girl
Your body shakes, it's like tonight we can take the world
Your pulse it races with mine and I swear we can take the world

    Song MeaningI think the song is pretty straight forward with its meaning:

    I think this song starts off with a boy and girl being together. The narrator hints at the fact that the two are friends and the girl obviously has feelings for the boy (She had him to herself perhaps as more than friend). The two obviously become physical with each other and have sex. The boy says something to the girl, something that makes her happy. These moments in the song are meaningful to the girl and make her feel on top of the world that's why the chorus is repeated after these events in the song. It is also evident that the girl isn't very accustomed to dating or even the feeling of love (the narrator hints at this in the line: Maybe it's love. How would she know?). Or at least this is my interpretation. Either way, I find this song freaking awesome.

    Also, first comment! Go me ;)

    General CommentI agree with the first comment but...I think that it's the girls perspective. I think what she doesn't know is the guy, her "friend" is a womanizer and now that she has crossed that line with him their friendship is over. Now she's just another notch. That's what I get from the video and all the different women in his bed. ...Sorry for the dark twist but remember this is SWR not Mariah or something lol

    General CommentThis is a pretty wonderful track. It's too bad the rest of the album didn't sound like this.
