Save up all the days
A routine malaise
Just like yesterday
I told you I would stay

Would you always
Maybe sometimes
Make it easy
Take your time

Think of all the ways
Momentary phase
Just like yesterday
I told you I would stay

Every time you try
Quarter half the mile
Just like yesterday
I told you I would stay

Would you always
Maybe sometimes
Make it easy
Take your time

    Don't you think this song could have another meaning? In my opinion, it's a song about society, about bored people who are fed up with their routine lives. Who just think about the past to keep going, who believe in happiness (or religion) to go on. To me, this song is about a person who tries to give courage to another one (friend or lover). But it's just a translation from a French chick, so.

    Its about a new relationship. Directed to the one who is uneasy and unsure about where they stand. And the other reassuring them it's okay and that they should slowly move forward with less confusion. "the routine malasie" is the inevitable uncertainty of a new found affection "quarter-half the mile" is about takig it too far too far and say they should not worry so much everything else is pretty self explanatory if taken in this conetxt.

    I believe its about someone who has been working a long time and is looking forward to getting away from the daily grind and is about to go on vacation for two weeks! But his boss is asking him to postpone his vacay and stay at work to finish some big project. Now the guy is all sad and melodramtic about being a tool and missing out on his vacation.

    Signed up just to say I really liked agneslegnou's take on the song. The "I told you I would stay" made me instantly think love song, but to me the bored with the routine idea makes more sense. It actually carries a lot of meaning for me because I started skateboarding 6 months ago and it changed my life for the better, and this song was in one of the first skate videos I watched.

    This is a love song. I believe it is about someone who is in love with someone and they keep tellin the person " i told you I would stay" but the other person is wary so is keeping their distance or just making the possibility of a relationship harder. When he sings " maybe sometimes, make it easy, take your time" hes saying can you let up a bit? Look, I'm still here, I haven't gone anywhere. And I'm not going to, I'm here to stay.
