Say You’ll Remember.

I’m a little obsessed with this song.  I make no apologies.  I find it very catchy.

When I 1st heard it the few dozen times or so, I was under the impression that she was talking about a boy, who was different from her, but that was the attraction and she hoped that they could get together.

Not too far off…..

I even thought she was singing “Say you’ll be my boyfriend….Say you’ll be my boy.” In the chorus.
Ummm….very far off. (She’s actually saying “Say you’ll remember.”)

I went and looked up the lyrics, and it was almost heartbreaking. 
I’m not going to go through my interpretation of the lyrics, because I think song lyrics are always subjective, but I feel that anyway you look at the story she tells, it’s one of loving someone wholly and unconditional, the hurt and  desperation of losing them and the longing of being reunited with them.

“I will love you till the end of time
I would wait a million years
Promise you’ll remember that you’re mine, Baby can you see through the tears?
Love you more
Than those bitches before
Say you’ll remember, oh baby, say you’ll remember oh baby ooh
I will love you till the end of time”

Yes…yes.  I feel this.  Despite all the shit…..Even the silly reference to the bitches before…..I still feel this.
