"Glad You Came" as written by Edward James Drewett, Wayne Anthony Hector and Steve (gb) Mac....
The sun goes down
The stars come out
And all that counts
Is here and now
My universe will never be the same
I'm glad you came

You cast a spell on me, spell on me
You hit me like the sky fell on me, fell on me
And I decided you look well on me, well on me
So let's go somewhere no-one else can see, you and me

Turn the lights out now
Now I'll take you by the hand
Hand you another drink
Drink it if you can
Can you spend a little time,
Time is slipping away away from us so stay,
Stay with me I can make,
Make you glad you came

The sun goes down
The stars come out
And all that counts
Is here and now
My universe will never be the same
I'm glad you came
I'm glad you came

You cast a spell on me, spell on me
You hit me like the sky fell on me, fell on me
And I decided you look well on me, well on me
So let's go somewhere no-one else can see, you and me

Turn the lights out now
Now I'll take you by the hand
Hand you another drink
Drink it if you can
Can you spend a little time,
Time is slipping away away from us so stay,
Stay with me I can make,
Make you glad you came

The sun goes down
The stars come out
And all that counts
Is here and now
My universe will never be the same
I'm glad you came
I'm glad you came

I'm glad you came
So glad you came
I'm glad you came
I'm glad you came

The sun goes down
The stars come out
And all that counts
Is here and now
My universe will never be the same
I'm glad you came
I'm glad you came

    Song MeaningGlad You Came is about a person being glad that a certain person came and that they had a really good time together. Time is slipping away and they want to spend some more time together.

    You guys are really pathetic to think that this song is about sex. If you really knew the band, The Wanted, you would know how uncharismatic that is.

    General CommentThis is a really well-rounded song (lyrics; vocals; instrumentals....I can never think of a better word than the latter, and that word sux, unfortunately). Anyway, it's NOT about sex. Well, it could be, but I hope it isn't. I hope it's more special than a physical act. Overall (musically) it reminds me of FTP's song about the gun and Goyte's hit. It has that special quality....catchy, danceable (is that even a word and did I spell it correctly?) yet thought-provoking. She shines a light that he wishes to capture....by spending some time with her. It's quite beautiful. Darn, I talk too much...

    My OpinionI think "glad you came" is a double entendre. For those of you whose innocence is offended or who want to defend the boyband that is singing this song, The Wanted didn't write the song, so sorry...

    I think it's pretty obvious there's a play on words going on here. The guy met some girl at a club and they had amazing, mind blowing sex that alters the guy's the universe. He may have only just met the girl, but she is so incredible and the sex is so mind blowing that he's "glad she came", in more ways than just one...

    General Comment"Glad You Came" has much more emotionally-healthy lyrics than "We Are Young" by FUN (which slips in a tale about crazy abuse). A happy song. Upbeat. Definitely an international musical appeal in this song by The Wanted!

    General CommentInteresting,the percussion sounds a wee bit like "Take Me Home",by Phil Collins.

    My InterpretationCome on people. The first time I heard this on the radio it was so, so obvious.

    "And I decided you look well on me, well on me" means she is wearing him meaning he is inside of her.

    "Make you glad you came" the meaning is obvious.

    After I heard the song I looked up the video and thought what a crock of crap. In the video they made it all innocent like some of you guys want to think but it is VERY clear that it is about SEX!

    General CommentI don't agree with some of the interpretations. I don't think it's about sex. It's not that raunchy and superficial. It's about being happy to have someone in ones life. I love this song. When I am with a man I am dating and see him smile, this song comes into mind (also probably due to all the air play it's been getting). Some people just have incredible smiles and sexy voices...their company lights up the room. The universe will "never be the same" once you meet someone special...

    My InterpretationPersonally, I don't think this song is about sex. The way I see it, it's about a boy (the singer) invited a girl to come somewhere with him and he is really happy that she decided to come because he got to know her better / that one day made him start falling for her. He wants to show her a good time and make her not regret coming. He or she might have to leave in the morning so their time is running short and he just wants to make the best of this night while they still have it before time forces them to separate, because it might be a long time before they see each other again.

    General CommentReading most of these makes me sad. My 7 year old son would sing this song to me every time I called home from overseas. Not everything is about sex.
