[Verse 1]
Hello
I've waited here for you
Everlong

Tonight
I throw myself into
And out of the red, out of her head she sang

Come down
And waste away with me
Down with me

Slow how
You wanted it to be
I'm over my head, out of her head she sang

[Chorus]
And I wonder
When I sing along with you
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again

The only thing I'll ever ask of you
You've got to promise not to stop when I say when
She sang

[Verse 2]
Breathe out
So I could breathe you in
Hold you in

And now
I know you've always been
Out of your head, out of my head I sang

[Chorus]
And I wonder
When I sing along with you
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again

The only thing I'll ever ask of you
You've got to promise not to stop when I say when
She sang

[Chorus]
And I wonder
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again

The only thing I'll ever ask of you
You've got to promise not to stop when I say when

    he is talking about
    waiting for someone
    who totally loves you back
    that waits for the other person to break up
    instead of them
    breaking other peoples hearts
    in the process
    to be with the one they really love.

    i know this is completely different then wat everyone else says but im pretty sure its about sex its a great song
    I've waited here for you, Everlong: hes waited for them to make love for a some time now
    Slow how ,You wanted it to be ,I'm over my head, out of her head she sang: she wants it slow and their so inlove its more then feelings in their head its passion like beyond their control
    And I wonder, When I sing along with you
    If everything could ever feel this real forever
    If anything could ever be this good again
    The only thing I'll ever ask of you
    You've got to promise not to stop when I say when
    She sang: their singing is them moaning and he loves that its like a connection they have and in that moment of passion they wonder if making love with someone else would feel as real and good as it does between them two and gotta promise not to stop loving when i say is her sayin to him promise to not stop loving me

    what i think it means is that. hes finally with the girl he loves. seems like hes in bliss. through all the hard times.. hes finally has what he wants. and no matter what they will always be together. even when they cant stand each other.. they know they love each other.
