It's the simplest things we tend to ignore, when it's the simplest things that mean so much more. Quit falling down because this is what I bet. Come on. Don't take those pictures down tonight. Please just wake me up. That would be a nightmare. Well, even if she wanted me to, I wouldn't be there in a hurry. If you did I know I would run away and scream. If she begged me I'd never bend back. If she wanted me to I couldn't listen to that. Remember me, I'm the one standing to the right of you whispering in your ear, "I'm gonna be with you forever."

    General Commentthis is a great song... I'm so surprised that more people haven't commented on these guys.. good song. The lyrics...sort of obvious..relationships and all that bla bla..but why does he say "even if she wanted me to, I WOULDN'T be there in a hurry" ...and then later "remember me, I'm the one standing to the right of you whispering in your ear, 'I'm gonna be with you forever'..." .....it's kind of contradictory. does he want this girl or not?

    General Comment^^ Yeh seangel, confuzzling a little, I gotta say. Maybe that's the point of the song, he doens't know what to feel for the girl...he's confused in the relationship. Maybe she keeps cheating on him and he likes her really but can't take all the heartache - a brilliant, brilliant song though. Love these dudes.

    General Commentokay... I think this song is about an ex girlfriend who keeps bothering him and the current girlfriend is freaking out thinking that he is going to back to her. but hes not.. because hes gonna be with her foever. :)

    General CommentAmmmmber22 is right. Well, I think so. That's why it doesn't make sense to y'all up there. It's about a relationship with a guy and a girl and the guy's ex or someone from his past at least keep trying to get him to bend back to her. And the current girlfriend is starting to get frantic and is worried that they as a couple will end.
