"Is This Thing On?" as written by Alecia B Moore, Butch Walker and Jake Sinclair....
Got your voicemail
Can you call me at a hotel?
There's something
That's weighing heavy on my heart
And heavy on my chest
I'm a long night, you're the morning
I annoy you and you bore me
And it's hard enough to make it through a road that's already a mess
All the good time we'll be just fine
Either way we need to be happy

Tell me, is this thing on?
How do we keep it true?
How do I keep you real to me, into me?
Without it faking it, too
What do we have to try?
When everything is too loose
'Cause it always is just me and you
That's the hardest thing, the hardest thing to do

And I want you to want me like the first time you saw me
I know it's ten years on but in my head we're still young and dumb
It is so hard to let go and replace you
I still love you
I just wanna find the thing in me that made me think this was the one
All the good time, we'll be just fine
Either way we need to be happy

Tell me, is this thing on?
How do we keep it true?
How do I keep you real to me, into me?
Without it faking it, too
What do we have to try?
When everything is too loose
'Cause it always is just me and you
That's the hardest thing, the hardest thing to do

It's the hardest thing, the hardest thing to do

    My InterpretationThe song is obviously about married couples. After the first few years the excitement dies down and keeping the relationship fresh becomes a struggle. They are obviously going through some tough times at the moment so she says in time everything will be fine. In the mean time they juust have to be happy and ride the storm together.
