Arkells - 11:11 Lyrics




You were all done up, but it wasn't for me
You were up at the front, t-tapping your feet
I was back at the bar; you had your eyes on the stage
You had an "x" on your hand to tell em' your age

I didn't put my money on it, but I was hoping that you would be here
If I was something that you ever wanted, I'm all ears, I'm all ears

You made a wish at 11: 11
I held your hips at 12: 34
There was a kiss just waiting to happen
A cab was calling outside the door
Oooooohhhhhh
I knew from the beginning
It was you from the beginning

Excuses disguised all the ones before
I'd be convincing myself they could be something more
I said "If you go home and get on the phone
And tell your girlfriends about me
I'll go home and sleep on my own
And dream of a girl named Lonnie"

I couldn't hold a candle to you, but you were glowing in the dark
I was nervous just standing with you, you were glowing in the dark

You made a wish at 11: 11
I held your hips at 12: 34
There was a kiss just waiting to happen
A cab was calling outside the door
Oooooohhhhhh
I knew from the beginning
It was you from the beginning

And you weren't even trying
Your dirty blonde hair had me going wild
You were a little bit shy then
There's no denying something so true

You made a wish at 11: 11
I held your hips at 12: 34
There was a kiss just waiting to happen
A cab was calling outside the door
Oooooohhhhhh
I knew from the beginning
It was you from the beginning

  3. Mikayla MacAllister

    Obviously this group with a writer of the song it had a lot of incidences with 11:11. 11:11 comes up in my life daily at least three to four times in random places

  4. Bennies Pizza

    Such an inspirational song, so catchy & loquacious 👏🏻⚡️✅👌🏻🔥🤩

  7. James Thomas

    So boring and vapid. Canadians usually make better music than this. It’s Canadian Kings of Leon.. only makes sense in a car commercial.

    Lovely music and thanks for your participation, Arkells! 01:30 into the song. U.S. Army/Marines/Military shoutout on the vest with the pins and slogan on back: "Kill Em All. Let God Sort Em Out." Follow the White Rabbit.

    André Brynkus

    Do you think it's really a reference to the American military when the expression has also been used by various bands for decades and (having just looked it up) the expression has existed for over 800 years?

  20. Mark Stallman
