Glad You Came - The Wanted

CHORUS
The sun goes down
The stars come out
And all that counts
Is here and now
My universe will never be the same
I'm glad you came

I
You cast a spell on me, spell on me
You hit me like the sky fell on me, fell on me
And I decided you look well on me, well on me
So let's go somewhere no-one else can see, you and me

II
Turn the lights out now
Now I'll take you by the hand
Hand you another drink
Drink it if you can
Can you spend a little time,
Time is slipping away,
Away from us so stay,
Stay with me I can make,
Make you glad you came

CHORUS
I
II
CHORUS

I'm glad you came
So glad you came
I'm glad you came
I'm glad you came

CHORUS


Meaning, Main Idea, and Message of The Song

Among so many exciting moments in our lives, having the first date with someone with whom we have a feeling may be the most special one. So special the moment is that we're gonna bring this memory to the end of our life. So special it is that we may forget anything else: we may forget an appointment we have made before, we may forget that we have something to do at hand, and above all, we may forget the passing time.

Well, regarding the time, I don't think that people really forget it. Yes, for those who are having the first date, time is something incomparable. If only time can be bought, they may be willing to buy it at any price as long as they can always be with the one they love. Unfortunately, time is not available for sale. Therefore, those having a good time, including them having the first date decide to let the time pass by. In a word, they intentionally forget the time.

Based on the complete lyric of the song above, I think the main idea of the song is in line with the paragraphs above. This The Wanted's Glad You came song tells us about a man's excitement in his first date with a girl he has been crushing on. All the lyric lines show hwo excited he is. As explicitely stated in the title, the man is so glad that the girl came. But, what makes him so glad? Is it just the girl's coming? Apparently, that's not the main reason. How could he be glad if the girl came just to say goodbye, for example? So I guess it's the girl's coming which make him so glad. It's something indicated with her coming which makes him excited. So what is it indicated? Well, based on the line 'my universe will never be the same' I guess it indicates that she responds positively to his love or in another word she accepts his love. Yes, his universe will never be the same since from then on he is not lonely anymore. He has a girlfriend :).

In the second verse, the man expresses his admiration to the girl which is commonly done by who is falling in love and having new romantic relationship. He adores her so much that he feels like under her spell. He is crushing on her so much that when she shows positive response, she feels like the sky fell on him. And finally, knowing that the girl accepts his love, he has gut to ask her go somewhere just both of them. Well, ones falling in love need privacy, right? :D

Meanwhile, if you want to know what the man is doing in their first date, you can see it clearly in the third verse. Just like you and me, in this very first date the man is trying to convince her that her decision to accept his love is not a mistake. It seems to me that this is a kind of promise.

Well, that's my interpretation of The Wanted's Glad You Came song. Have you ever experienced the same thing?
