[Intro]
I changed your mind
And ended up here
Through stained glass eyes
And colorful tears

[Chorus]
Fine...
Maybe I'll pretend right now
But I swear to god
I'm gonna change the world
I promise you
Someday we'll tell ourselves
"Oh my God, this is paradise"

[Verse 1]
I cherish my
American girl
She holds them down
While I destroy the world
My desperate cries
She don't seem to care
(Oh yeah)
She bites her tongue
And we can tell each other
"Baby this is paradise"
"And it's so god damn good"
Now we live like we should

[Chorus]
Fine...
Maybe I'll pretend right now
But I swear to god
I'm gonna change the world
I promise you
Someday we'll tell ourselves
"Oh my God, this is paradise"

[Chorus]
Fine...
Maybe I'll pretend right now
But I swear to god
I'm gonna change the world
I promise you
Someday we'll tell ourselves
"Oh my God, this is paradise"

    I think that this is about a girl who has a guy in her life, they're in a relationship and they love each other so much. He does everything for her and wants her life to be better after everything that has happened before and during the relationship, and their "paradise" is actually those two finally falling in love with each other and having a future together.

    I think they are referring to a girl they spoke of in another song on this album, from holding on till may where she implies she rather die than go on, but he's saying how he changed her mind, and that he is determined to change the way their lives even though right now they are still hurting.
