Mayday Parade – I Swear This Time I Mean It lyrics

Oh Florida please be still tonight don't disturb this love of mine
Look how she's so serene, you've gotta help me out
And count the stars to form the lines and find the words we'll sing in time
I wanna keep her dreaming it's my one wish I won't forget this

I'm outdated, overrated, morning seems so far away

So I'll sing a melody and hope to God she's listening sleeping softly while I sing
And I'll be your memories, your lullaby for all the times, hoping that my voice could get it right

If luck is on my side tonight, my clumsy tounge will make it right
And risk the touch it isn't much but it's enough
To form imaginary lines, forget your scars we'll forget mine
The hours change so fast
Oh God please make this last

Cause I'm outdated, overrated, morning seems so far away

So I'll sing a melody and hope to god she's listening sleeping softly while I sing
And I'll be your memories, your lullaby for all the times, hoping that my voice could get it right
Could get it right

And you could crush me, but please don't crush me
'Cause baby I'm a dreamer for sure
And I wont let you down
I swear this time I mean it


And I'll sing a melody and hope to God she's listening sleeping softly while I sing
And I'll be your memories, your lullaby for all the times, hoping that my voice could get it right.

    It's about how he had finally found someone to fall in love with, and he wants to protect that. "Oh Florida please be still tonight, don't disturb this love of mine." Her sleeping and him singing to her is a metaphor for protecting their love and the happiness that it is giving them, and how he wants to live forever, in the night, in that beautiful bliss, and never let that moment and that feeling leave his grasp.

    I think it's about him failing too many times and she has given up hope for him ever making a life for them. He is trying to tell her that he swears this time it will be different. He doesn't want her to leave him for his mistakes. He only want's her to be happy, but he knows he can't do that for her. He wants to keep trying though.
