"Of All We've Known" as written by and Steve Miller Jason Maffucci....
It's 9 o'clock and it's getting dark and I can't see the road
I flash my headlights into the dark night
I swear we'll make it on our own

We're older than we used to be
This town holds no more to see
We're fading in, we're fading out
Until I hear you say

Come on, come on
Hey kid, this is far too important for you to understand
She says be a man, you know this is what we both wanted
It's time for us to let go
Of all we've known

It's 1 a.m. and we're alone again, I reach out for the sky
My mind keeps playing all the words you're saying
I'm always wrong when you are right

We re older than we used to be
This town holds no more to see
We're fading in, we're fading out until I hear you say

Come on, come on
Hey kid, this is far too important for you to understand
She says be a man, you know this is what we both wanted
It's time for us to let go
Of all we've known

Come on, come on
Hey kid, this is far too important for you to understand
She says be a man, you know this is what we both wanted
It's time for us to let go
Of all we've known

Of all we've known, of all we've known
Of all we've known (Hey kid, this is far to important)
Of all we've known (For you to understand)
She says be a man

    General CommentThis is just my guess but i think this song is about moving on and admitting that you were wrong

    General CommentI think this song is about getting out, breaking free and moving on. They speak of letting go "of all we've known" and how the town "holds no more to see". I see the plot as best friends, most likely a guy and a girl, getting out together, breaking free from their old territory to start a life together. Emotions are everywhere... being unsure, yet wanting to take a risk...

    then again, this is what I think of it. many people have different interpretations of songs depending on what it means to THEM.

    General Commenti don't exactly know what this song means but i think that the last two people had a prety reasonable explanation. this is by far my favorite song on the album.

    General Commenti think this song is about two people in a relationship, and they're both enjoying it fully, but then the guy starts to have second thoughts and wants to back out.
    but the girl is keeping him on his feet and saying "you know this is what we both wanted, it's time for us to let go of all we've known."
    i think she just sort of wants him to trust her ("hey KID, this is far too important for you to understand") and just have faith in the relationship.

    General Commenti agree with monster4007..a breakup that was apparently a long time coming. and now hes thinking he may want to stay with her
