Boys Like Girls: Thunder Meaning
Whoa (whoa, whoa, whoa)
Today in the blink of an eye I'm holding on to something and I do not know why
I tried to read between the lines
I tried to look in...
This is a gorgeous and straightforward love song that needs little explanation. I believe the band's frontman said he wrote it about his high school sweetheart and I definitely get that vibe from it, especially in "Your eyes are the brightest of all the colors". I think we've all felt like that at one time or another; that someone is your "thunder" and they just bring excitement and meaning to your life. This song is for that feeling.

The song I wrote the plane is going to Sweden I met max at the studio I asked him if we can do pop rock vibe song then I’ll record with my favorite band lady antebellum they came in the studio but Hillary is singing with me.
This song is about a summer love, obviously. But it's more than that. This couple thought they were going to be together forever (I don't ever wanna love another)
They just want to spend every second together and never leave and when the summer ended, so did their relationship and he feels so lost and alone (I'm walking on a tightrope, I'm wrapped up in viens, I think I'll make it out, you just gotta give me time.
This girl meant a lot to him, the girl that he loved made him want to change and become the man that she need. But, things were just meant to be for the summer.

It's about summer love. I fell in love in the summer of 2009. June 26th 2009, that was the day i told my best friend "i'm gonna marry that boy one day". We're engaged.

this song is about a summer love. where they grew apart as soon as summer was over
"today is a winding road that's taking me to places where i didn't want to go" because of the pain that he felt he starts to do things that he didn't wanna do.
"today in a blink of an eye i'm holding on to something and i did not know why, i tried" he's overwhelmed at how deep the love he felt for her in just a short time.
"Your voice was the soundtrack of my summer
Do you know you're unlike any other? You'll always be my thunder, and I said Your eyes are the brightest of all the colors I don't wanna ever love another You'll always be my thunder" even thought their time together is now over, he can never find another girl like his summer lover and that she'll always be special to him.
"Today I'm on my own I can't move a muscle and I can't pick up the phone I don't know" now summer's over and they're already apart he doesn't feel like doing anything, that's how empty he feels without her.
"And now I'm itching for the tall grass
And longing for the breeze I need to step outside Just to see if I can breathe I gotta find a way out Maybe theres a way out" he starts to miss the times they were together and wants to relieve those moments and see if he can handle it even without her.
"Yeah I'm walking on a tightrope
I'm wrapped up in vines I think we'll make it out But you just gotta give me time"
he feels that there is still hope for them to still be together for real, that in time everything will be alright.. ;)
So, I know that my interpretation is completely different than anyone else's but go easy on me. I lost my dad 3 years ago and this song embodied that loss completely... I have the first four lines of the chorus: your voice...all the oclors : tattooed on my leg in remembrance of him. Granted, the whole song doesn't necessarily line up with the death of someone, but the majority of it is perfect.
From not wanting to go down that road, and trying to hold onto physical or emotional memories. Regarding the chorus, I got to spend the majority of the summer with him, talking to him, learning from him, and just having a great time. He is like no one else. When I was in high school, we tried to go tornado chasing, but that failed. We've always bonded over storms and the like. His eyes were the brightest blue. And there is no way that I'll ever love another father-figure more. Thunder and rain will always remind me of him.
Losing him was devastating. It was the beginning of a long, winding road. Not being able to move, talk, feel, care, etc... Needing to get out of the house, away from old reminders. Needing to breath and figure out how life will go on now...
It's a never ending trepidation of what life will be like next. Not knowing if you'll survive physically or emotionally. You do anything to remember them and wonder what they would think of what you're doing now. For me, my dad had cancer and so I knew his pain and would have taken it all on myself if possible. Pain is all that one feels after something like this. Even if it's terrible pain, I'd rather feel that than feel nothing at all. So bring on the rain and thunder - bring on the memories and the reminders

It's about a summer romance like where it says "your voice was the soundtrack of my summer..." meaning they have been with that person all summer.
