Song Meaning

This song is about a sleepover, quite obviously. The narrator and the other character in question are together at a party, which doesn't seem to be entertaining enough for them. The narrator offers to take the other character home with him, because both of them are feeling lonely. The line "I gotta know if you're the one that got away" implies that the two had a previous relationship together, and the narrator wants to take a shot at rekindling it. He becomes so obsessed with taking the other character home that it becomes very urgent to him "Well I ain't got much time...".

Lyrics

Well I ain't got much time so I'll get to the point
Do you wanna share a ride and get the fuck out of this joint?
I've got an impulse so repulsive that it burns
I wanna break your heart until it makes your stomach turn

I gotta know if you're the one that got away
Even though it was never meant to be

Say you'll stay the night
'Cause we're running out of time
So stay the night
I don't wanna say goodbye
Say you'll stay the night
'Cause we're running out of time
So stay the night
I don't wanna say goodbye

Well you're so sick and tired of feeling so alone
Well I don't understand the point if you have to go home
So won't you stay and count the circles 'round my eyes?
And we can watch the stars until the sun begins to rise

I gotta know if you're the one one that got away
Even though it was never meant to be

Say you'll stay the night
'Cause we're running out of time
So stay the night
I don't wanna say goodbye
Say you'll stay the night
'Cause we're running out of time
So stay the night
I don't wanna say goodbye

I gotta know if you're the one that got away
Even though it was never meant to be

Say you'll stay the night
'Cause we're running out of time
So stay the night
I don't wanna say goodbye
Say you'll stay the night
'Cause we're running out of time
So stay the night
I don't wanna say goodbye

I gotta know if you're the one that got away
Even though it was never meant to be

Say you'll stay the night
'Cause we're running out of time
So stay the night
I don't wanna say goodbye
Say you'll stay the night
'Cause we're running out of time
So stay the night
I don't wanna say goodbye
