25 Minutes Lyrics
anonymous Apr 14th, 4:52am report
It's about a guy who was 25 minutes too late. He kept looking for the girl who he broke up with or the girl broke up with her. Finally, the last place he looked, he saw her and she already got married. The brand new post, explained very well the interpretation of this song. If she really loved him, she should have looked for the guy too, repaired her relationship with him and didn't move on and have a relationship with another guy.

The song is about a boy and a girl who had a intimate relationship (being more than friends - as per lyrics) in the past. The boy hurt the girl which results ending of this past relationship and romance of theirs. But eventually when this boy became a man and realized his mistakes in their past, and also realized that this girl is the one he always loved. He decided to be with his girl forever, he will ask her to marry him, to him she is for keeps (she is the girl and i really want to make her mine - as per lyrics). But his mistake was he search for her in the whole town, probably first from her house, their favorite dating places, in the park, in the town plaza, in the market (spending the 25 minutes of his time) not realizing that the wedding happening in the Church (with the bells, the hyms ang songs, the visitors) was for the bride happens to be the 'girl his searching for'! When finally he realize he needed guidance and direction from the Lord to find his lost 'love', he was shocked to see that this 'love of his life' his searching for (with her wedding dress and all) was the one married to someone. And when she saw the 'love of her life' walking towards her (with all his sweat and tears and tiring feet because of searching for her in the whole town except in that Church he passed by), her tears begins to fell also from her eyes. And finally admits to this man in front of her that she waits for him in that '25 minutes' before the married vow, still hoping that her man will come to rescue her... but that did not happen. Because 'though he travels so far' he's still 25 minutes too late. '25 minutes' that change their lives forever...

Why would the girl merry another man when she still love's him?

25 minutes means the guy was already 25 minutes too late. The girl he is in love with was already married. Maybe the girl invited him to attend her wedding with at 10 am and he arrived at 10:25 am. He wanted to stop the wedding and profess his true undying love but he was 25 minutes too late. It's not years, but minutes. Listen carefully to the lyrics

Hey guys, I have a question.. What does 25 minutes means? It's tell about the time of 25 minutes, or the year 25 years? Anyone can you tell me?

This song is very clear. Good times can be achieved without kisses between lovers. Love is more than that. Happiness is more than kisses. Nowadays, physical intimacy means love but it's more than that. Beyond that. To each his own. We all have different meanings about love, kisses, happiness, etc. Goodluck Mr.

Lyrics of this song -> very clear to interpret.
If they were lovers, why did their love didn't last?
If they were really in love, why didn't they fight or argued for their love?
If the girl really loved the boy, why would she be happy and accept the love from another boy?
If the boy finally realized he loves the girl and wants to make things right, why was he late for 25 minutes?
Idk. But I think the girl only has lust for the boy and not love. Because she only mentioned the kisses. Lovers can have a good time without the kisses.
I think the girl's meaning of happiness is only about kisses and she felt that by kissing the other boy really loves her. Love is not only about the kisses. Love is more deeper than physical intimacy.
I think the boy should move on and do wants he wants in his life. He should delete his feelings for the girl because he will never get over her if he is still in love with her. Being happy in life is not only about getting married, finding someone else, about the kisses. Happiness is a very deep emotion.
Anyway, idk. The band knows the real meaning of their song.
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

Song about 25 minutes too late..
The bride was either waiting for the cue to walk down the aisle and meet her groom or the wedding was finished 25 minutes earlier..
Lesson for anyone..
1) It's not the end of the world
2) Maybe the girl or boy was not meant for you
3) Maybe both of you were not meant for each other
4) There's a lot of boys and girls and definitely you will meet the right boy or right girl for you
5) Who cares if you are single, hanging out, enjoying friends, dating, engaged, married, or love being alone. It's your choice and anyone has their own right to live their life the way they want and making sure you are not hurting anyone, then go ahead and be yourself
6) Who cares if you failed in love once, twice, thrice, or lots of times.. You can still and be loved
Seize the day!

It's about a boy and a girl who were more than friends and kissed in the past. The boy did hurtful things to the girl and they stopped seeing and talking. The boy wasn't sure about his feelings for the girl. He was not able to make up his mind. Probably he was deliberating if she was the girl for him and if he really wants her to be his. One day, he finally had the courage to look for her and to tell her about his love for her. Possibly they both went to a very distant church before and the boy felt he needed God's guidance and direction. He was about to enter a church and was shocked to see the girl that he wanted to disclose his feelings was wearing a bridal dress. Sadly, the girl moved on and was about to wed another boy.
Moral of the story:
Some people never get a chance to experience this kind of love. Many had a chance but never took the next step. Many took a risk but it didn't end well and they parted ways. Many moved on and loved another person. Some end up alone but not lonely. Some lived life like it never happened and Some lived life and moved forward with or without this kind of love.
Like 6/9/16.. Treasure that one person you love and who loves you back.

Well I think its about this boy and girl who broke up...she really loved him so shr invited him to her wedding in the thought that he would object to the marriage ...but it looks like he was to late 25 minutes to late ...they sing ...'she looked so happy in her wedding dress but she is crying while she says : boy I kisses all time but this 25 minute to...though u traveled so far ....' So its a lovely song it just has a deeper meaning

In my opinion.... The boy broke the girl's heart and he realized that he really loves the girl and He will apologize and make her his wife but he searched everywhere buti He was too late because the girl was married to the another man and he was 25 minutes late.....
why 25 minutes late?
The girl married another man and the man she really loves was there and the wedding ceremony was finished 25 minutes ago....

Treasure that one person you love, because they don't always wait, even if they love you back.

The story behind the song was about a young girl and boy. After the girl broke the boys heart he wrote that song '25 minutes' and gave it to MLTR to sing as a dedication from that boy to that girl when they went on their Tour in America. So they did sing it. And she heard that song. But at the Same time a lot of people committed suicide. So they banned MLTR from making music for some time. But now they still perform live. They came to my country twice.
But anyways that's the story I heard.
