[Intro:]
Stay for tonight
If you want to
I can show you
What my dreams are made of,
As I'm dreaming of your face
I've been away for a long time
Such a long time
And I miss you there
I can't imagine being anywhere else
I can't imagine being anywhere else but here

[Verse 1:]
How the hell did you ever pick me?
Honestly, I could sing you a song
But I don't think words can express your beauty
It's singing to me
How the hell did we end up like this?
You bring out the beast in me
I fell in love from the moment we kissed
Since then we've been history

[Chorus:]
They say that love is forever
Your forever is all that I need
Please stay as long as you need
Can't promise that things won't be broken
But I swear that I will never leave
Please stay forever with me

[Verse 2:]
It goes to show, I hope that you know that you are
What my dreams are made of
Can't fall asleep, can't fall asleep
I lay in my bed awake, in my bed awake at night
As I dream of you
I'll fall in love, you'll fall in love
It could mean everything, everything to me
I can't imagine being anywhere else

[Chorus:]
They say that love is forever
Your forever is all that I need
Please stay as long as you need
Can't promise that things won't be broken
But I swear that I will never leave
Please stay forever with me

[Bridge:]
The way that we are
It's the reason I stay
As long as you're here with me
I know we'll be Ok
The way that we are
It's the reason I stay
As long as you're here with me
I know I'll be Ok

[Chorus:]
They say that love is forever
Your forever is all that I need
Please stay as long as you need
Can't promise that things won't be broken
But I swear that I will never leave
Please stay forever with me

(I couldn't love just anyone, I was created to love just one baby)
They say that love is forever
Your forever is all that I need
(I couldn't love just anyone, I was created to love just one girl)
Please stay as long as you need

(I couldn't love just anyone, I was created to love just one baby)
Can't promise that things won't be broken
But I swear that I will never leave
(I couldn't love just anyone, I was created to love just one girl)
Please stay forever with me

    The song means that we are in love. You are a beautiful girl. I love everything about you and i dont want you to leave. He wants her to stay with him for as long as she wants. He wants to be with the girl forever but he doesnt know why she chose him. He could sing any song but the lyrics wouldnt be enough to express the way he feels about this girl. He wants her forever. All he needs is forever, and forever is all he would ask for. He loves her so much and he doesnt know what he would do without her.

    This is my favourite song by this band. They've gotten new songs, and this one's gotten older. But it'll a l w a y s be my favourite♥. The meaning... I think it's about faith in a relationship, and un-breakable bonds between people. The chorus is amazingly worded. And this song, though i can't really relate to the experience that i think this song is about, it's truly amazing. I'm glad i came across this band on youtube one day. They've changed my life :). Sleeping. With. Sirens. ♥. F o r e v e r :3.

    My main question is, why is this song called "If I'm James Dean, Then You're Audrey Hepburn"? I looked them both up and the only thing I could find was that they were in a few movies together. I love this song and I constantly have it stuck in my head, I'm glad my friend introduced me to Sleeping With Sirens. But I think some of you are right about the relationship thing, it seems like a guy really likes a girl and is expressing his feelings through a song for her, whether they are together or if he just met her, I have no idea. Don't we all wish we could ask the band members in person about it? I think this song is adorable and has a lot of meaning to it.

    It just shows that love has no limits, and that you can love someone who lives far away from you. Laying awake, wishing you were with them when you can't. And once the two are finally together, their love sparks and everything around them stops as they see into each others eyes and have a smile on their face.
