"You and I Misbehaving" as written by Kianna Alarid, Neely Jenkins, Jamie L Williams, Derek Pressnall and Nicholas White....
Oh Darci, Darci don't look so sad
Don't let the daytime get you down
Because we will be wild like children once the black has veiled this sky
No pushing buttons, no telling lies
No pointed fingers trying to keep you quiet
Just you and I misbehaving
Oh trying our best to feel alive
We won't ever let them win
When we are younger oh our hearts are so much bolder
The pressure is not as great
We floated weightless through the tops of trees
But as we get older oh our vision becomes blurred
And then the fog it slips right in
Now you're wondering how oh yeah, you're wondering how you ended up here
How you end up here
The hateful, hateful tough little boys
That move their lips whenever you're around
So smart just shouting answers (shouting answers)
I guess their fathers taught them well
So sit real still they've got to size you up
Don't move your mouth
They don't like when you talk
They're trying their best to define you (to define you)
They're trying their best to keep you down
We won't ever let them win
Because this world you know it can get so crazy
All these people talk a lot
They know this, they know it all
What a drag
But you know there will always be some oddball singing
Just remember to sing along, yeah you better start singing a long
This place could be so beautiful
You just can't let them pull that cloth over your eyes
Just keep on screaming
Bop bop ba, bop bop ba
Bop bop ba, bop bop ba
Bop bop ba, bop bop ba
Bop bop ba, bop bop ba
Bop bop ba, bop bop ba
Bop bop ba, bop bop ba
Bop bop ba, bop bop ba
Bop bop ba, bop bop ba
Bop bop ba, bop bop ba
Bop bop ba, bop bop ba
Bop bop ba, bop bop ba
Bop bop ba, bop bop ba

    General CommentThe bass in this song really shines thru the song... I like the female voice...This song also seems to be about growing old... losing that 'innocence of youth' as written

    "When we are younger oh our hearts are so much bolder
    Oh the pressure is not as great
    We floated weightless through the tops of trees "

    especially with 'how did we end up here?"

    Suddenly we're 30 or 40 and where did the years go?

    General Commentthis song is crazy, like how people are hooking up to feel more alive, but it seems like it leaves them empty.

    General Commenti agree with donna the dinasaur, it really is encouraging. to me, the song says even though you live in this chaotic hell hole just...follow your heart, don't take yourself too seriously, and ALWAYS have play time. there comes a time where you really just have to accept how messed up this world is and let it go...

    General CommentSaw them with Bright Eyes a couple months ago, and the live performance just blew me away. Slightly less spectacular in studio, but that's okay because I like their songwriting, too.

    Gotta love how it's written for the one guy's younger sister.
