"11:11 P.M. (CST)" as written by Tyson Ritter and Nick Wheeler....
All the windows,
Swear to miss you,
And the doors are cell block tight,
Sweet sedation,
Sweep the issues,
And the clocks about to strike
Did it call you down,
Are you back just yet,
Waiting now please come set me free,
And the only sound is a minute left.

This could be, this could be the last time

It's a chance to fix mistakes,
One more for the last time,
Does it blow our dreams away,
Don't waste this chance with your smile
Ten seconds left on this dial,
This could be the last time.

Along the staircase,
I dream to hear you,
In a whisper quiet room,
Space the thinking,
Space to scream to,
But the echoes sound like you,
Not the stars at night,
In a pitch black sky,
I don't know just wants to see you
But the time is right and it only flies.

This could be, this could be the last time

It's a chance to fix mistakes,
One more for the last time,
Does it blow our dreams away,
Don't waste this chance with your smile
Ten seconds left on this dial,
This could be the last time.

It's only us,
It's only now,
A simple wish,
It's only tonight.

This could be the last time,
Now I've made our last mistake
One more for the last time, (this could be) (this could be)
Does it blow our dreams away,(this could be) (this could be)
Don't waste this chance with your smile (this could be (this could be)
Ten seconds left on this dial, (this could be) (this could be)
This could be the last time. (this could be) (this could be)
It's only us,
It's only now,
It's only tonight.

    General Commentso, here's the deal,
    he still likes her, and is still waiting for her, hence the metaphor 11.11pm.
    the name title also plays on the fact that its about to hit 12 , so there's a certain sense of urgency to the situation as well, also showing how problems got procrastinated to such a late point in time(maybe she cheated on him? neevr apologised, or denies it).
    this COULD be the last time , not to throw their dreams away,before the next day(aka 12) where they go their separate ways irreconciable.but deep down he hopes things really do work out!

    OR

    A slightly different scenario, would be he and a girl have feelings for each other, but she has a man in her life, and he thinks that man doesnt treat her that well, yet she puts up with it "did he call you down , are you back just yet?" (this could be just himself though)
    shows as if her boyfriend doesnt really bother to call to see how she' doing , her well being
    and that instead, she should "waiting now, you should come and set me free" instead.
    that she would free him if she chose to be with him. And he keeps insisting that SHE KNOWS that theyre meant for each other "It's a chance to fix mistakes
    One more for the last time
    Don't you throw our dreams away"
    however , like the title suggest, he's about up to have it with waiting, and wouldnt wait for her much longer, and puts the onus on her to make the choice
    "don't you throw our dreams away,
    this could be the last time" to be together finally.

    at the end of the song they sing the chorus the lyric with slightl changes to"Now we've made our last mistakes"
    showing her its alright to make errors, but now its time to listen to her heart and to be with him
    "It's only ours
    It's only now
    It's only tonight "

    General CommentNo one said what they thought it meant? I think this song is about getting a second chance at a relationship, but having it fail

    General CommentThis song is about 2 ppl making mistakes. They stoped talking to each other for all their mistakes. And one person wanting everything to be the same because they miss them and that they need them, and everything makes him think about them. He just wants everything to be the same and even though they made mistakes it could all work out becuase they love each other. Theres only one more chance to make everything right!... this song could be for a friend or someone you love. I love the lyrics.

    General Commentanyone bother to think that the title, and the lyrics, might be a play on the phrase "the 11th hour"? referring to the last moments before a deadline, or meant to imply that a decisive or "final" moment is near?
