It's twelve o' clock and I need your attention
It's like the alcohol making my head spin
Your scent is the rum. the room is a bottle
Keeping me hopeless 'til I wake tomorrow

And if tonight ever makes a difference
The way that I feel the way that I'll remember it
I'll take this down until the glass remains
Swallow the words that I was meant to say

It's a long drive back to Vegas skies
So why don't I make one more wrong turn tonight, so

Say goodnight our first goodbye
I've only got forever and forever is fine
Just take your time
We'll stop the clock together
And know that the timing was right

All of these guards they stand tall and defensive
Putting up walls around what was once innocent
It won't let me in, but I'm stronger than that
'Cause you stole my eyes and I've never looked back

Girl, last night I forgot to mention
The way that I feel, the way that I'll remember this
When we're this young, we have nothing to lose
We just the clock to beat and a hand to choose

It's a long drive back to Vegas skies
So I don't, I make one more wrong turn tonight, so

Say goodnight our first goodbye
I've only got forever and forever is fine
Just take your time
We'll stop the clock together
And know that the timing was right

It's a long way down
Just fall into place and you'll fall into me
We'll make it out you'll see

So, say goodnight, our first goodbye
I've only got forever and forever is fine
Just take your time
We'll stop the clock together

And say goodnight, our first goodbye
I've only got forever and forever is fine
Just take your time
We'll stop the clock together
And know that the timing was right

    It's... a love song. A very simple love song about making all the time in the world for the person they love.

    He introduced me this song. I cried the first time I heard it. We're friends, but we can't be lovers. He's taken. But then we fell in love with each other. And then he sang this song to me. The very first time I heard it. And we said "goodnight" instead of "goodbye" we never see each other again. Forever is fine.

    Alex (lead singer) said in an interview that the song isnt actually about falling in love but rather being hurt and heartbroken. He said its about loosing someone and telling that person that you are heartbroken that they are gone and that you are willing to wait for them as long as it takes

    To me this means falling in love with someone that everyone is against me being with... And that no matter what i'd do anything to be with them and also that i want them to know how much they mean to me.. Thats what i think i might be wrong though

    Being with someone and not wanting to say goodbye because you're so in love with them, but you know that you'll see them again &people are trying to stop them from being in love & the guy wanting to tell the girl how he feels but doesn't, he keeps making mistakes & wants to keep making them because that means he gets to be with her longer.
