Remembering Sunday
All Time Low Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

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 going to 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 though 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 going to 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

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,
From so many thousands of feet off the ground, I'm over you now
I'm at home in the clouds, and towering over your head

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

I take issue with the 'should be happy'. Yes you should take some respite in the fact someone you love is doing okay, but should implies can. It's near impossible to choose to feel, or not feel, something. I feel like this idea of "you should be happy for them" can lead to guilt if you literally Can Not shake the grief that inevitably comes with losing a loved one - through death, separation, emigration etc.

At least, that's certainly been my case for the past few months.

I don't mean to start a conflict. In a sense this is more venting than anything else. I guess I just recoil at the thought that what I feel is somehow wrong or unethical, when I have no control over it and others are certainly in my position.

Either way, the sentiment I agree with - that real love is selfless and shouldn't be centred around your feelings in how you practice loving - it's just the practice that I'm not so sure about.

Sorry for the essay.
