"Centered on You" as written by Keith William Hamilton Jeffery, Michael Douglas Jeffery, Steven Roger Jeffery and Darren Norman Sell....
A heart drops it's emotion
Towards, it's not how it's supposed to be
And it all moves into one

Slow burn the devotion
We took turns, the stars fell over
And it all moves into one

The outcome is pseudo bliss
Turn hours sung, I went in tears
And it all rolled into one

Mind lit up
The second for
Centered on you
My conscience all lit up
This second for
Centered on you

She went, all we are
She went, all we are
She went, all we are
She went, all we are

A heart drops it's emotion (She went, all we are)
Towards, it's not how it's supposed to be (She went, all we are)
And it all moves into one

Mind lit up
The second for
Centered on you
My conscience all lit up
This second for
Centered on you

Mind its up for
The second for
Centered on you
My conscience all lit up
This second for
Centered on you
These moments uh
The second for
Centered on you

    My InterpretationI love this song! Very relaxing guitar and rhythm. The vocals add a nice touch too. I think the song is about two people, and one of them has just confessed their feelings towards the other. However, the other does not share the same feelings as the other person creating an unbalanced shift in their relationship.

    "A heart drops it's emotion
    Towards, 'it's not how it's supposed to be'"

    - The narrator confessed that they have greater feelings towards this other person. Unfortunately, this person does not share these feelings but would rather remain as friends. To be beyond friends "is not how it's supposed to be" and now the relationship is at an imbalance. Almost immediately, the person who confessed their feelings feels their heart drop due to the rejection and the possibility that they messed up their relationship.


    "Slow burn the devotion
    We took turns, the stars fell over"

    - After that, things don't seem to go back to normal. The stars falling over symbolizes that the sparkle in the relationship is burning away.


    "The outcome is pseudo bliss
    Turn hours sung, I went in tears"

    - They decided to remain just friends regardless that one of them wants to be more than that. As a result, one of them will not be truly happy being stuck in the "friend zone."


    "And it all rolled into one"

    - The last line ties all of these phases together very well. By admitting that they loved the other individual, they rolled their mutual relationship together into this one-sided romance. Now all of the possibilities of anything else beyond what they are now are gone like fallen stars.


    "Mind lit up
    The second for
    Centered on you
    My conscience all lit up
    This second for
    Centered on you"

    - They keep thinking about the possibility of being more than friends with the other person.


    (She went, "all we are"
    She went, "all we are"
    She went, "all we are"
    She went, "all we are")

    - The other person's rejection. The phrase "all we are" rejects the idea of something greater than from what it is now.

    This is just my interpretation.

    General CommentI'm pretty sure the lyrics are actually,

    "Mind lit up
    With second thoughts
    Centered on you
    Conscience all lit up
    With second thoughts
    Centered on you"

    And...

    "These moments of
    Second thoughts
    Centered on you"

    As well as,

    "Should we all wait up x4"
