All Time Low – Remembering Sunday lyrics
He woke up from dreaming and put on his shoes
Started making his way past two in the morning
He hasn't been sober for days

Leaning now into the breeze
Remembering Sunday, he falls to his knees
They had breakfast together
But two eggs don't last
Like the feeling of what he needs

Now this place
seems familiar to him
She pulled on his hand with a devilish grin
She led him upstairs, she led him upstairs
Left him dying to get in

Forgive me, I'm trying to find
My calling, I'm calling at night
I don't mean to be a bother,
But have you seen this girl?
She's been running through my dreams
And it's driving me crazy
, it seems
I'm gonna ask her to marry me

Even though she doesn't believe in love,
He's determined to call her bluff
Who could deny, these butterflies
?
They're filling his gut

Waking the neighbors, unfamiliar faces

He pleads, oh he tries
But he's only denied
Now he's dying to get inside

Forgive me, I'm trying to find
My calling, I'm calling at night
I don't mean to be a bother,
But have you seen this girl?
She's been running through my dreams
And it's driving me crazy, it seems
I'm gonna ask her to marry me

The neighbors said she moved away
Funny how it rained all day
I didn't think much of it then
But it's starting to all make sense
Oh, I can see now that all of these clouds
Are following me in my desperate endeavor
To find my whoever, wherever she may be

[Juliet Simms:]
I'm not coming back, (forgive me)

I've done something so terrible
I'm terrified to speak, (I'm not calling, I'm not calling)
But you'd expect that from me
I'm mixed up, I'll be blunt;
Now the rain is just (you're driving me crazy, I'm)
Washing you out of my hair and out of my mind
Keeping an eye on the world,
So many thousands of feet off the ground
I'm over you now
I'm at home in the clouds
Towering over your head

[Alex Gaskarth:]
Well I guess I'll go home now

I guess I'll go home now
I guess I'll go home now
I guess I'll go home.

    Actually, this song doesn't have anything to do with the fact that this girl committed sucide, as odd as that sounds. In fact, in the song "vegas" he talks about how he would marry that girl if he could. Now in "remembering sunday", he talks about how he lost that very same girl. The part "i'm at home in the clouds" is about being on a plane. She didn't commit suicide, she just simply left him. You don't think this is true? And even on an interview with alex, he told them the meaning of this song, and that is what he said. So no, she did not commit suicide to those of you who think she did.

    I've heard lots of theories about what this song is about. This one is my favorite because it is extremely dramatic and sad and tragic in a beautiful way: so this guy has a brief affair with a girl. He falls in love with her. Even though she says that she doesn't believe in love he doesn't believe her and still wants to marry her. So he goes out to find her even though he doesn't have any of her contacts. When he figures out where she lives she is no longer there. He asks the neighbors who said that she's gone. The weather turns bad, reflecting his mood because he knows that the news is bad. You figure out that the girl isn't coming back because she did something so terrible, she killed herself. Now she's "at home in the clouds" watching over him. She still hopes the best for him. But he is crushed by the end of the song, giving up and going home. The end isn't that a tragically lovely love story?

    I agree for the first half but disagree with the second part. I believe the first part is true until the plane thing. I think when she says she's done something terrible she committed suicide. And the neighbors don't want to have to tell him because they don't want to have to bring the bad news. When it gets to the part where she is thousands of feet over the ground I think she's saying she's in heaven and she's watching over him. Which is also why the clouds are following him in his desperate endeavor because she is in the clouds watching over him. And she's at home (in heaven) in the clouds. And then he finally finds out she's dead so all can really do is just go home because he has nothing else to do now.

    I love this song and my friend too, this is my one of my favorite song.
    He woke up in the morning and he is thinking about the past, the past that he got so happy, the past that he felt so different than others. And he realizes that its just the past and he's been drinking all way out. Because he can't accept the fact that it's all in the past now. And when the time that he goes looking for her it was already too late. She was gone before he could know it. The griping in his heart make him hard to breath. He's looking everywhere for her. He's asking anyone he could ask just to find her. He won't accept that it will just end up like that. He can't accept that they'll don't see each other anymore and what hurts him the most is that only the memories of the past is the only thing he have now. As the cloud follow him he look up the sky. Whenever that we're under the same sky we are all connected. And the word separation is "useless" because the sky remind him of her, whenever he looks up int he sky he smiles and he feels at home.

    Alex apparently wrote this song because he fell in love with a girl and he wanted to marry her and when he went back to ask her to marry him "the neighbors said she moved away" and Alex found out later that the girl actually committed suicide. His brother had also committed suicide which is why he says "This place feels familiar to him". This song has so much meaning in it, and I love it. Alex has been through so much and I really admire him.

    I love this song.
    I think it means his woke up from dreaming of this girl he loved that has killed herself and he his been drinking to relieve the pain. Then his remembering things and how good it felt like breakfast together and when she led him upstairs. He is then trying to find her because he wants to marry her but no one has seen her and then he realises shes killed herself. She then says that shes done something terrible and I think its that she didn't mean for him to fall for her and now shes killed herself and shes watching above. I'm not sure if his saying his going home as in home or as in heaven home but id like to think its home.

    Obviously, Everyone is going to have a meaning or a "connection" to this song. It may be personal or through the band All Time Low. I'd thought I'd share my connection with 'Remembering Sunday'. I met a boy through an app that I had on my phone for teenagers to meet others. He decided to add me on the app Snapchat and we started talking on there all the time trying to get to know each other. it because a time that I was going through a hard time and he wanted to meet me in person and wanted to comfort me so that he will know that I will be alright and etc. We met on the Sunday in August. He had "butterflies" in his gut about meeting me and etc. Now that we have broken up, we don't talk anymore. it hurts me as it is the only the memories of the past that made me happy, just remembering how badly we wanted to meet and get to know each other more in person. Memories will always linger in your mind as we cant forget our happiest moments and sad moments in our life..

    First of all, no one killed themselves. This song, remembering sunday, has the same meaning as vegas. It's about alex from all time low and meg from meg and dia/dea (idrk). I'm not really sure if they met in vegas on a sunday. But alex said to jack, his best friend, in a concert that alex wanted to marry meg but he was just like, 17. And in the part when it's juliet's turn to sing, I'm guessing it meant that meg didn't want to meet alex at that time because she was ashamed/embarrassed of what she did, and alex expected that. And then she's having mixed emotions. I'm not really sure what she meant by "now the rain is just washing you out of my hair" but I'm guessing that the rain is making her not think of him. And she left on an airplane. Then she got over alex. Then alex went home. -done.
    ^all that was just a guess or a theory except for: 1 - the song is about meg from meg and dia/dea. 2 - the song has the same meaning with vegas. 3 - no one killed themselves. And 4 - she left on an airplane. :).

    What it sounds like to me is that this boy was in love with this girl. He didn't know it, but she left, and now he's trying to find her. But, he's so upset about it that he doesn't stay sober (probably because there's too much pain). So, he's trying to find this girl, even though he's drunk, and even though he knows that she's gone, he's still stubbornly looking.
    I never heard this song until today, not by this singer, but by someone much better. It really is a pretty (yet depressing) song.

    This is just me kindof thinking out side the box(:
    I think this soing is about a boy meeting a girl, ok? Well turns out he really like this girl but they're only going to meet once and he basicly saying hes trying to find this girl but its not going to happen. The girl he meets is just like one he might of had in his dream. But since he never found her. She just floating around in his dreams. Hes sky high.

    Ha. I think this guy is inlove to this girl way too much. And the guy did everything, anything just to see this gal, then after doin everythin for her, the girl got herself stuck on something terrible that it's gonna hurt the guy. She's guilty and I'm not sure about these two. (she got on a plane or committed suicide?) watever it is, but she did something like "away force" (lol) coz she's too guilty of what she did.

    Whether she either moved away or died doesn't matter, what matters is that she is not with him in the end. It means that he is trying to remember the good times they had together to cope with the fact that she is gone and is not coming back. This song is supposed to be happy, but can never be happy because she is gone forever, and he finally realizes it by the end of the song. Btw being in the clouds doesn't mean she is dead, she could be in lala land (head in the clouds and donsent care about anything else) or even flying away in a plane. Or abducted by aliens! Either way there are many meanings and it could fit to whatever you need to feel while listening.

    To everybody who thinks the girl committed suicide, get your facts straight. There are All Time Low songs about suicide, such as "Lullabies" which is in fact about lead singer Alex Gaskarth's brother committing suicide, but that doesn't mean that all of their songs deal with the same subject matter. This song is simply about a guy who's recalling a girl that he very much loved leaving him, and at the end he decides he has to move on.
    Retrospectively, in the Juliet Simm's part, you can tell the girl loves him but she's confused, but she has made her final decision to move on.
    I love this song, and I value the opinions of others, but your meanings are chopping the song to bits and pieces. It's simply a love song, or a lost love song. She didn't kill herself. There are facts to this. Please stop assuming she killed herself just because of some other All Time Low songs.

    The song isn't about her killing herself or her dieing. The song Vegas is the follow up to this song about almost marrying Meg Frampton from Meg & Dia when he was seventeen. Alex said in an interview that Remembering Sunday and Vegas are about the same person. Meg isn't dead, and he said in another interview that 'I'm not coming back, I've done something so terrible' and 'I'm over you now I'm at home in the clouds' means she was in an airplane. She left him and won't come back.

    Okay when I first heard this song. I really thought the girl this guy loved commuted suicide and he knew that she was the one for him so when she died he gave up on love (the part that says " I guess I'll go home now") but as I listen To it more I realize that she didn't kill herself. The guy and girl either had a huge fight or the girl got cold feet about marriage and left without saying anything because she couldn't bare watching herself break his heart. That's what I think but I'm no expert. Lol.

    This song is about a guy who was in love with this girl. But she realy didn't beleive in love, but with him she felt it. She felt the love. And one day when he wanted to proposed he couldn't find her. He searched all around and wakes people looking for her. She is all he can dream about. All of them said she moved. But that would be hard since it rained all day. He relizes what rlly happened. She killed herself and no he did not kill himself! The last verse is when he finds out bout her killing herself. And he goes home and drinks for days to releive the pain.

    This song is very simple, yet has a powerful meaning.
    It's talking about a man who meets and falls in love with a girl, and after a one night stand, he is determined to "call her bluff."
    After a while of not talking, he goes and searches for her, but she has "moved."
    Finally, he realizes she is dead, and knows that she is watching over him, and they both wish they could move on.

    I see it as a guy who is really into this girl, he pretty much thinks he's in love with her. But she teased him. She led him into this world that he sees as love, but she can easily walk away from it. He's a naive, hopeless romantic. And she is experienced, and she sees that she's made a mistake by leading him on, but she really doesn't think she can do anything about it, so she runs away from the relationship.
