Song: 10 Days Late

Theory:

I think that it's about his girlfriend being pregnant and just finding out about that. He has to think about what he's gonna do. "Time has come for you to choose. Baby daddies keep your boo. Many blessings come to you. Baby daddy keep your boo."

Song: 10 days late

Theory:

It's obviously about a guy who got his girl pregnant - "She's ten days late". I've read it's not Stephan's personal experience but it happened to a friend of his so he wrote the song. I've read it again today and I think the guy leaves the girl at the end "I walk away but, oh no Don't go..." I can't prove it by the lyrics but I got the feeling the bastard took off. Anyway, it's not saying clearly what happens at the end but it's a story of a guy whom his girl is pregnant.

Song: 10 Days Late

Theory:

I think the reason this song has no meassages or theories is because it is so obvious. The Girl is 10 days past her period, she's pregnant. The narrator is fine with it, at first "I can't wait to see this through" But by the end of the song he is sadly walking away "I walk away oh no, don't go". His concius is yelling at him right then but he ignores it and leaves the girl behind.

Song: 10 DAYS LATE

Theory:

I THINK THIS SONG IS ABOUT PREGNANCY.... AND REALIZING THE REPONSIBLITY THAT COMES WITH HAVEING THE CHILD..IN THE BEGINING OF THE SONG IT SAYS " CLICK YOUR HEALS I FEEL YOU COME FOR ME , CARE FREE SHE GOTS SOMETHING BIG TO TELL ME". I PICK UP FROM THAT LINE THAT THE GIRL/WOMAN HAS FOUND OUT ABOUT HER PREGNANCY, AND IS NOW GONNA TELL HER PARTNER ABOUT THE SUPRISE... AND ITS ALL FILLED WITH CONFUSION CAUSE I'M GUESSING THEY BOTH DON'T NO WHETHER ITS SOMETHING, OR NOTHING AT ALL, SHE JUST COULD BE LATE CAUSE SHE'S JUST HAVING A BAD MONTH OR IT COULD BE SOMETHING... AND THE LINE "I GUESS I'LL ALWAYS BE KNOWING YOU" SIGNIFYS WHEN YOU HAVE A CHILD TOGETHER, EVEN IF YOU STAY TOGETHER OR NOT, YOU WILL ALWAYS KNOW THAT PERSON AND BE IN THERE LIVES CAUSE THEIR EITHER THE FATHER/ MOTHER OF THAT CHILD, AND CHILDERN JUST DON'T GO AWAY.. THEY'RE THERE FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIVES.

Song: 10 days late

Theory:

this song is totally about finding out that your girl is late. then talks about trying to deal with it. "give me a minute now to figure out my state" then the chior comes in "time has come for you to choose, baby daddies keep your boo" there they are thinking about abortion, but they do't want to, they want to keep their boo. then the girl is looking to the guy for what to do, and he doesn't know. when he is first told she is late, the guy is in shock. he kinda fades out and notices other things "low ride bycicles go cruzin' by, I laugh I don't even know why." that is pretty much it.

Song: 10 days late

Theory:

i think it's pretty obvious to me and to everybody else that this song is about a girl (probably one of the band members' previous girlfriends) who was ten days late and the guy was worried about all these emotions that crawled into his head about kids and marriage and all that crap... 
i dunno - what's your thought?

Song: 10 Days Late

Theory:

It's about Stephan's godchildren. 

"Funny how she always cried out 'Daddy, I got a big surprise', she said 'I'm in trouble now and it cannot wait'" - talkin about a kid obviously. 

And in the 3EB holiday greeting Stephan said "I have these godchildren now, that yknow, the song 10 Days late is written about".

Theres some evidence for ya

Song: 10 days late

Theory:

This song is about two young people who fell in love, and now the girl is pregnant (ten days late for menstration). And now they need to figure out what to do, but the guy does'nt know (blue eyes looked at me for what to do, I can't lie, I dont know!)

Song: 10 days late

Theory:

This song is about an unmarried couple or two people who decided to have casual sex. "She's got something big to tell me", well that something "big" is that she is pregnant with his baby. 10 days late is referring to her menstral cycle. It is also ironic because in the song there is a line that says "funny how she always cried out daddy" and now he is going to be the daddy of the baby. And "boy your life got complicated" is another example of how life is going to change. Many people know someone like this and I am glad Jenkins writes a song about it because it is a very serious issue

My theroy is that it's about a girlfriend who is ten days late for her periods, and he relizes that his life is gonna change if his girlfriend is pregnant.

It's about fearing the fact that your girlfriend is pregnant

Song: 10 Days Late

Theory:

It is very obvious 10 Days Late has to do with a girl and a guy, who hace been "intimate", and she has something to tell him. She has missed her period by ten days and now she thinks she is pregnant. I can hear the uncertainty in Stephan's voice. He is singing "Give me a minute to figure out my state." Meaning his state of mind. Also "The bicycles go passing by" thing, it sort of represents in our times of frailness we remeber silly details of life. Another lyric "Your eyes look at me for what to do, I can't lie, I don't know." You know he is confused his situation. The choir sings on how not to leave the girl and blessings will come to him. Lastly, some irony in "funny how she always cried out daddy", while having sex, she called him daddy, and now he really will be one. i love this song, you can really feel for the characters.

Song: 10 Days Late

Theory:

Stephan says this song was written by placing himself in the perspective of a teenager who's girlfriend becomes pregnant. The lyrics are self explanatory after that...
