The Popdust Files: analysis, between the lines, I Found You, lyrics, the wanted

Introducing “Between the Lines,” a new Popdust feature in which we geekily analyze the the lyrics of your favorite songs, line by line, and–BEST PART–you get to join in and do the very same! Propose your own interpretation, tell us why we JUST DON’T GET IT, or lead your very own conversation. And check back daily to see if your favorite new jam has been chopped up by our team of trained lyric ninjas.

After the smashing success of “Glad You Came” finally broke The Wanted in the States, it’s time for the British/Irish boybanders to hold their new territory. Follow-up “Chasing the Sun” failed the set the world on fire, but could new single “I Found You,” coming out in November, give the lads a legitimate second hit? (Our Pop-Off voters seem to think so!)

The song certainly keeps The Wanted on familiar territory. (Although it’s turf One Direction might be trying to muscle in on.) Just as in “Glad You Came,” they’ve hit the club in search of a lovely lady to pitch woo to. Superproducer Steve Mac‘s trademark accordion synths back up some very fist-pumpable drums as the lads’ lust transforms into love with the help of some killer ’90s-era falsetto harmonies. Can a soul be saved by one awesome make-out session? According to “I Found You,” it can.

Here’s our take on the key lyrics. Tell us if we’re completely bizonkers by clicking the highlighted text and commenting, or start a thread by highlighting the plain text. We even left the last chorus completely open, just for you!

She wants me to come over I can tell, her eyes don’t lie
She’s calling me in the dark
She moves—I swear the room around her lights up like the sky
Confidence like a rock star

I wanna put my hands on her handsfeel the heat from her skin
Get reckless in the star light
I’m moving to the beat of her heartI was so lost until tonight
Tonight

I found you in the darkest hour
I found you in the pouring rain
I found you when I was on my knees

And your life brought me back again
I found you in a river of pure emotion
I found you, my only truth
I found you and the music played

I was lost, till I found you, you, you
I found you, you, you

The night is getting older and I can’t come off this high
I don’t want this here to end
I know she feels the same ’cause I can see it in her eyes
She says, “Can we start again?”

I wanna put my hands on her hands, feel the heat from her skin
Get reckless in the star light
I’m movin to the beat of her heart, I was so lost until tonight
Tonight

I found you in the darkest hour
I found you in the pouring rain
I found you when I was on my knees
And your life brought me back again
I found you in a river of pure emotion
I found you, my only truth
I found you and the music played

I was lost, till I found you, you, you
I found you, you, you

I said peoplewe’re all looking for love tonight
Sometimes we can’t see it, we’re all blinded by the light
And we all get low, all get low
Searching for the peace of mind

Just when I’d given up , looking for some kind of sign

I found you, you, you
I found you, you, you
I found you, you, you
I found you, you, you

I found you in the darkest hour
I found you in the pouring rain
I found you when I was on my knees
And your life brought me back again
I found you in a river of pure emotion
I found you my only truth
I found you and the music played
I was lost, till I found you
