PostSubject: Gotta get home   Thu 18 Feb 2010 - 9:57

"Run, run, run, run far away
There's someone coming over the hill someday
He doesn't know your name
But he knows just what you've done

So I've thought all about the end of us
The divide that would come to break out love
Through bullet holes everything is clear

I call your name
When I sleep I'm seeing your face

Cos I gotta get home tonight
I gotta get home tonight
If it's the last thing I ever do in my life
I've gotta get home tonight

Illumination of the heart
On the battlefield, in the dark
The radio waves, they speak over you
Time after time, over again
The boys on the front line, they turn into men
I pray that I'm gonna get get get out of here alive

I call your name
When I sleep I'm seeing your face

Cos I gotta get home tonight
I gotta get home tonight
If it's the last thing I ever do in my life
I've gotta get home tonight

Cos I gotta get home tonight
I gotta get home tonight
If it's the last thing I ever do in my life
I've gotta get home tonight"


It's the song I like most when I saw them for the first time.
What do you think is it about?

It's not my favorite song but I really like it, of course ^^
Maybe it's about a loving disappointment...maybe...
What do you think ?

Sorry, meghan, that it took me so long to come up with an answer, but I'm still not sure about the meaning of the song. I can't decide whether the song's about a loving disappointment and all the words like "battlefield" and "the buys on the front line" are metaphors for growing up and getting over a disappointment in life OR it's really about war or some kind of battles. Maybe it's a mixture of both? He, lying in the trench, thinking about his love and home which he's about to lose. Or maybe I'm just too complicated. roll eyes

I don't know and I think my english is not good enough to understand a "hidden message" in the song...But maybe you're right, maybe... smile
If someone is sure to know the meaning or want to give his opinion, help us please laughing

As I've just read in an interview with Ben (click me) that the inspiration for their album came from a failure of a relationship I now am convinced that the song is "simply" about a loving disappointment...
