Right Now Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Lights go down
And the night is calling to me, yeah
I hear voices singing songs in the street
And I know that we won't be going home
For so long, for so long
But I know that I won't be on my own, yeah
I love this feeling...

    this song is definitely about the boys being on tour. they have shows every night in different places but they still nervous.

    "Lights go down, and the night is calling to me, yeah.
    I hear voices singing songs in the street"
    #the show is almost start and they hear some fans singing their song (it doesnt make sense if i said they could listen outside of the backstage on the street but you got the idea)

    "And I know that we won't be going home for so long, for so long.
    But I know that I won't be on my own, yeah.'
    #obviously they are on tour for a long time but each of them are not alone, they have their band mates

    "I love this feeling that right now
    I wish you were here with me
    Cause right now
    Everything is new to me.
    You know I can't fight the feeling.
    And every night I feel it.
    Right now
    I wish you were here with me."
    #ok this chorus im quite uncertain cos the YOU, are they refer to the fans, their loved one or the band mates. as they are nervous so they need "someone". even tho they have done a lot of show but still new as each places give them different vibe.

    "Late night spaces with all our friends, you and me, yeah.
    Love these faces just like how it used to be."
    #these lines are really touched me. they are having show at the stadium full of people and they're really happy that they're made this together with their band mates. and the faces they see every night just bring back all the memories on each tour (uan,tmh)

    "And I could do this forever.
    Whoa, whoa.
    And let's go crazy together.
    Whoa, whoa."
    #means they are really passionate what are they doing right now. they dont even bother if THIS is their job

    This song is about how even though they have a lot of shows they still get nervous, the lines,And we won't be going home for so long for so long but I know that I won't be on my own ,means that even though there gar away from home they won't be lonely because they have their fans and their band mates.

    to me i believe it's about how they enjoy touring and love there fans hence "I hear voices singing songs in the street" also how they perform in the night and the lights dim when they are about to show on stage, also that they won't be going home since they are currently touring. they wont be on their own because they have eachother and their fans. the chorus explains how they wished they had a loved one by there sides just to share their experiences with them and how everything is unexpected to them hence "everything is new to me" and how they want to be home but they really enjoy touring. BASICALLY, its a song about being homesick.

    I feel like it conveys that there is a special person that the singer(s) wants to share his success and achievements with but that special person has died and the singer is reminiscing the times they have spent together and is longing for them. But at the same time he's happy that he still feels so strongly for that person "I love this feeling......"

    I feel as this song is speaking to a person they need but is gone. It could be a reference to a passed relative that helped them and understood them like no other. Or for some of the boys cases when their parents divorced they needed the one that was gone. Like when they were with their mom they needed their dad to understand what they are/were going through. Or just someone in general they are missing and need to talk to. Sort of a ballad of need/want.

    Personally what I think is that maybe they were in a relationship with someone they truly loved and, like in Moments, they probably passed on and they really want this person back right now. "I hear voices singing song in the street..." this line make me think of something paranormal or something. "I hear you calling to me" this line is sorta like he's a medium and can hear ghosts and things and maybe he hears her calling. "We won't be going home for so long..." Maybe he's thinking of committing suicide and when you're dead obviously you won't be going home. the rest is basically self explanatory.

    It means they miss their family members and girlfriends etc.

    To me this is a song about a long distance relationship kind of like what a couple of the band members have, being that they're traveling all around the world and their girlfriends are still at home and they just want them right next to them experiencing the fame with them, and having them by their side every step of the way
