Wait Lyrics

Dirty looks from your mother
Never seen you in a dress that color, no
It's a special occasion
Not invited but I'm glad I made it
Oh, let me apologize
I'll make up, make up, make up, make up for all those times
Your love, I don't wanna...

    My full interpretation is that 'a guy' is crashing a wedding (hence why the mother is angry and why he is seeing her in a dress of a different color). It's a special occasion and he wasn't invited (wedding). But he is realizing that he did her so wrong and wants to be with her - think about a wedding (the bride faces away from the crowd) and throughout the whole song he wants her to turn around to see him, to talk to him. Also, weddings are notoriously associated with drinking - hence the "3 or 4 to get this out".

    On a separate but common ground note, I contemplated inviting my ex to my wedding just to see what he missed out on so I can sympathize with this song - not empathize since I am not a guy.

    I think it is about attending the girls wedding and realising how he didn't treat her right and now wants a second chance. thats why asking her to wait and not continue walk down the aisle , hence "turn around and wait."

    He’s killed her through the fact he's done so wrong....hence the reason she’s in a coffin... the video in the end shows his life unraveling when she leave. He has nothing left when she decides to leave. Like for like. He gets what he’s done to her. That’s the reason he asks her to leave as he wants forgiveness but it’s too late. The damage is done

    I think it has to do with him giving the love of his life an std and struggles to make up for it but finally does with money but she then takes all of his money and leaves.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    Sounds like he is at her wedding. Trying to interject in the speak now or forever hold your peace part of the ceremony. Her mother is there, it’s a special occasion, he never saw her in a dress that color. She is at the altar and he says, wait... turn around... we can work this out

    Definitely it sounds like he is pleading her for a second chance, but feels he needs a few drinks in him before he tells her how he feels. I think many of us can relate to this song. Sometimes the right person is right before our eyes, but when we finally realize that, then it can be too late.

    I think its about a guy who wants to apoligize to his girlfriend because he cheated on her but she does not listen to him so he ask her to 'wait' so he could talk to her

    I think he got drunk then cheated on the love of his life on accident and she didn't forgive him

    I think 'wait' is about a guy who drank his chances away, missed the opportunity to be with the love of his life, due to alcohol. When he realised it and try to fix his issues, it was too late. He lost it all.
