Won't you stay 'til the A.M.?
All my favourite conversations
Always made in the A.M, yeah, yeah

Feels like this could be forever tonight
Break these clouds, forget about time
There could be a World War three goin' on outside
You and me were raised in the same part of town
Got these scars on the same ground
Remember how we used to kick around just wasting time?

Won't you stay 'til the A.M.?
All my favourite conversations
Always made in the A.M
'Cause we don't know what we're saying
We're just swimmin' 'round in our glasses
And talkin' out of our asses
Like we're all gonna make it, yeah yeah

Feels like this could be forever right now
Don't wanna sleep cause we're dreaming out loud
Trying to behave but you know that we never learn, ha
You and me were raised in the same part of town
Got these scars on the same ground
Remember how we used to kick around just wasting time?

Won't you stay 'til the A.M.?
All my favourite conversations
Always made in the A.M
'Cause we don't know what we're saying
We're just swimmin' 'round in our glasses
And talkin' out of our asses
Like we're all gonna make it, yeah yeah

Ooh, you know I'm always coming back to this place
Ooh, you know
And I'll say
Ooh, you know I'm always gonna look for your face
Ooh, you know

Won't you stay 'til the A.M.?
All my favourite conversations
Always made in the A.M
'Cause we don't know what we're saying
We're just swimmin' 'round in our glasses
And talkin' out of our asses
Like we're all gonna make it, yeah yeah

Won't you stay 'til the A.M.?
You know I'm always coming back to this place
Won't you stay 'til the A.M., yeah yeah
You know
Won't you stay 'til the A.M.?
You know I'm always gonna look for your face
Won't you stay 'til the A.M., yeah yeah

    General CommentThis song is written from the perspective of someone who is reminiscing their past with someone they love.

    The narrator wants to go back to adolescence where everything, including this relationship, was much simpler than the present. The meaning of the first verse is pretty self evident:

    // Feels like this could be forever tonight
    Break these clouds, forget about time
    There could be a World War three goin' on outside //
    They are so caught up in each other that nothing else matters at the time besides their bubble of safety that surrounds them when they have these late night (or early morning) conversations.

    // You and me were raised in the same part of town
    Got these scars on the same ground //
    This could be either literal or figurative. They might be referring to actually growing up together or they could be referring to coming from similar backgrounds.

    // Remember how we used to kick around just wasting time? //
    This lyric I imagine a couple of teenagers kicking a soccer ball around hahaha but I think it also refers to the effortless quality about their relationship; just glad to be around each other no matter what they were doing.

    And then the chorus:

    // Won't you stay 'til the A.M.?
    All my favourite conversations
    Always made in the A.M //
    Late-night conversations are usually connoted with honesty and/or intimacy and those types of conversations are what the narrator values most.

    // 'Cause we don't know what we're saying
    We're just swimmin' 'round in our glasses
    And talkin' out of our asses
    Like we're all gonna make it, yeah yeah //
    I interpret "swimmin around in our glasses" to compare a fish, kept in a small glass bowl with no other option but swimming around and around their bowl, to high-aspiring teenagers. So the couple in this song obviously individually have large goals for later in life, believing that they're "all gonna make it". But either the past them or present them recognize how hard it is to actually pursue your dreams. They are stuck in this glass bowl, being able to see out of it but not realizing there is no escape from their confinements of what I presume to be reality.

    The third verse:
    // Feels like this could be forever right now
    Don't wanna sleep cause we're dreaming out loud
    Trying to behave but you know that we never learn, ha //
    Again, considering things such as time to be trivial when they are in their own little world. They're too interested in sharing their aspirations in life to each other to go to sleep. They also know that they should go to sleep, but that doesn't change the fact that they won't.

    Bridge:
    // Ooh, you know I'm always coming back to this place
    Ooh, you know
    And I'll say
    Ooh, you know I'm always gonna look for your face
    Ooh, you know //
    Now, the bridge makes me think that their relationship has ended but the narrator can't help but feel nostalgic of their memories together, specifically their memories of staying up talking a bunch of shit with each other.

    So, all in all, the narrator misses the simplicity of their lives and of their relationship when they were teenagers. I love this song SO much because i am 16 right now and it really does feel like anything is possible. I think it somehow also captures how scary growing up is, although I couldn't pinpoint any specific lyric to support that, just the feeling I get from listening to the song and reading the lyrics.

    Anyway that was probably a stupid interpretation but I adore this song so I think it deserves some love in the comment section :-)

    General Commentit's about the band itself, their friendship.

    they're reminiscing on the great times they've had together, having a good drink and a good laugh and wanting to pause this moment of the bliss of being surrounded by loving friends.

    i read somewhere that it's the "aftermath of their careers" or just before they depart for break. they want to break clocks and forget about time because they're feeling a sense of not wanting to leave what they've achieved and the memories they've shared behind.
