on Amazon Music

Take me to your best friend's house
Roll around this roundabout
Oh yeah
Take me to your best friend's house
I loved you then and I love you now
Oh yeah

Don't take me tongue tied
Don't wave no goodbye

Take me to your best...

    I think it's about a teenage boy trying to convince his girlfriend to take their relationship to the next level. They can't go to either one of their houses because their parents are strict. No co-ed sleepovers or anything. The girl's best friend has parents who are less strict or they don't know what she gets up to for whatever reason, like maybe it's a single parent household and that parent works the night shift or whatever. So, take me to your best friend's house so we can get it on finally! It's either that or a threesome.

    I believe the meaning of this song is he is in love with her best friend, but not as much as his girl. I definitely believe there is a threesome going on here. ¨I don´t usually interpret songs, but when I do, I´m usually right about the meaning.¨

    Not much for deep thought here..when your in love you beat friend is your lover.she wants him to take her home and hang cuz they cant be apart..think about your first love.makes sense if you think about the whole song and not just lines in it

    The song may represent how the male wants to go to his partner's best friend to make out or fuck or something. That's the basic interpeetation. If you want to go deeper, you really can't. It's a fun song about cheating on your girlfriend in a late night party. Maybe he was drunk, (the shaky 3D as he reversed up the stairs and such) maybe not. Possibly those masked people are his concious knowing karma is coming. That's just my guess, but hopefully it gave someone a rough idea.

    For one, I think those who think the video has no meaning are silly. For two, marmalade is not another girl he is cheating on. For three, this is a persona, he does not want the night to end. Tongue tied he is talking about that nervous spark of love and he does not want to be left that way. The girl says "stay up all night, slumber party pillow fight, well get real high", and the video starts off with the guy kissing a girl. The video starts off with the idea that someone uninformed might not recognize what a certain individual did. It was a trip "roundabout" like an acid trip. This night was its own thing.

    A guy wants to go to his gf's best friend's house. Eh convinces her to go, hence they go around the roundabout. As they're going, he assures her that he's only going to the part to party, not for anyone else (I loved you then I love you now). He goes to the party, making out with Marmalade (his gf's best friend?), and gets caught. He tries to explain (I love you then I love you now) and wants his gf to hear him out (Don't leave me tongue tied) and doesn't want her to end the relationship (Don't wave no goodbye/ Don't break).

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    Why is everyone using the video to interpret the song? Videos don't have anythingg to do with their songs most of the time. They weren't singing about masked men and shit.

    I'm pretty sure the lead singer and the chick that is in the band met in New York while he was staying at a friend's house - and they have been dating ever since...so I deduce this is a song about their random meeting. I have read bits and pieces of their interviews, and I somehow pieced this together. Or maybe I'm wrong. Either way, the song always puts a smile on my face and makes me more optimistic about meeting someone new to love :) I'm grateful to Grouplove for all the times that song has transitioned my mood to carefree and optimistic youthful adolescence! Somehow they captured it in that song.
    Cheers from Virginia!

    Boy is in love with a friend's best friend. That's why he's so insistent on "take me to your best friends house" he wants to see her. he likes her but she however does not like him back, that's why he's like "I loved you then, I love you now" meaning, give me a chance, I still like you from the moment I met you. They make out or whatever, and he is tongue tied at the sudden OMG SHE GAVE ME A CHANCE. And he's begging her to stay, he doesnt want it to end. Don't leave me now, I've waited so long, "don't wave no good-bye"

    i think the guy just wants to go to a party with his girlfriend at her best friend's house.

    "roll around this roundabout" and "i loved you then and i loved you now" probably mean that they used to go to parties together when they were younger, and he wants to have another one so that he can feel young and happy again.

    "dont leave me tongue tied, dont wave no goodbye, dont kiss me goodnight"
    could either means that he doesnt want his girlfriend to reject his invitation to go to the party with him,
    or that he doesnt want her to leave during or after the party, he wants her to stay a bit longer.

    I dont know what it really means, but this is one of my favorite songs, :D

    I think its about a guy who messed up with a girl and they Arnt together anymore but now he misses her and wants to go back to her best friends house where they would always hang out.

    not sure about the threesome thing, but as usual, most songs revolve around sex. I was thinking more along the lines of this being "dont leave me High and dry" type song. Dont take me that way, dont leave me that way. He wants sex

    I think it means that at first the guy had a great time at a party then his gf kisses him leaving him tongue tied just as he is hunted down by these weird masked people. Don't leave me tongue tied is after that amazing kiss and he finds out he is probably never going to see her again

    "Take me to your best friend's house" - Her "best friend's house" is her pussy. Tongue tied - pretty obvious.
