Hurry, Hurry
Come quickly
And leave all knowledge aside.
Don't say a word.
Just listen carefully to me.

The world is ours
If we could only let it be.

Every move we make
Will trigger another.
And every small mistake
Will be a messenger...

"The world is ours
If we could only let it be.
The world is ours
If we would only let it be."

Our lives are weaving like a thread.
Within each other, faithfully.
Sharing in our joys and miseries
And all that the world can give.

Always. Always.

In the depths of our souls.
Flickers of hope
Will show, so clear...
Like a pearl in the sea,
A pearl in the sea.

(the smiles on faces, born in familiar places.
we'll build ourselves islands upon the deepest oceans.)

For the last time,
This could be the last time
To pull it from the water,
To wear around our necks.

The world is ours
If we could only let it be.
The world is ours
If we would only let it be.

Hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry.

    General CommentI love this song. The great thing about Sleeping at Last is that their songs can be interpreted so many ways. But the way I see this song hardly involves relationships.

    I think the song talks a lot about life. "Every move we make // Will trigger another" - probably talks about how doing one thing will be followed by a chain of events, kind of like a domino effect. The song has a really light tone about it, so I don't think Ryan was being cynical. I think he means that everything will fall into its place eventually.

    "Our lives weaving like a thread // Within each other, faithfully" - I think Ryan is trying to say that we are all dependent on each other, and we are all apart of a bigger picture.

    I don't think I can say enough of how much I love this band. They're so refreshing.

    General CommentWow.. Such an amazing song. I'm not sure if this is the actual meaning of the song, but this is what it means to me personally, and I think that's more important. It's about a relationship that he really wants to push to a new level, but the girl is having her doubts about it. It's about the things people go through when entering a new relationship and how you learn from your mistakes:

    "Every move we make
    Will trigger another.
    And every small mistake
    Will be a messenger..."

    Like I said, I may be a little off, but that's what the song means to me because I can really relate to that message right now.
