"Que Sera Sera" as written by George Ciukurescu, Shane Henderson, Jonathan Perry, Max Soria and Brendan Walter....
Well I can still smell the Portland air
And it makes me sick to my stomach
To think of what you've become
These tall evergreens
And the lights of your city
Should have warned me long ago
That I fell way too fast

If mountains could talk
This one would share its secrets with me
Of what it has seen
Of you and the way you move
So now that I'm listening
I've got my ear to the wall and my feet are touching the ground
I'm trying not to give myself away
But my heart is beating way too loud
And that got my thinking
One may never be as happy as one seems
So I'll go ahead and give myself away
Cause this dream is taking all of me

You won't talk
And it remained
Just you and I overlooking these Portland lights
From the top of a mountain
In a park where you call home
From the top of a mountain
In a park where you call home

If mountains could talk
This one would share its secrets with me
Of what it has seen
Of you and the way you move
So now that I'm listening
I've got my ear to the wall and my feet are touching the ground
I'm trying not to give myself away
But my heart is beating way too loud
And that got my thinking
One may never be as happy as one seems
So I'll go ahead and give myself away
Cause this dream is taking all of me

Things got a little crazy for me for that week
Where I drank myself stupid to the point where I couldn't even speak
It's beautiful here, I don't ever want to leave
Then I thought about the unfortunate side effect
Of me being me

And I remembered
Back where this leads
Back to the park where you call home
And me realizing
What back then
I should have known
I'd hate what you'd become

Well I can still smell that Portland air

So now that I'm listening
I've got my ear to the wall and my feet are touching the ground
I'm trying not to give myself away
But my heart is beating way too loud
And that got my thinking
One may never be as happy as one seems
So I'll go ahead and give myself away
Cause this dream is taking all of me

    General Comment"Que Sera Sera" means, in Spanish, "What will be, will be." This is a song of acceptance of the fact that people are never what they seem, and people can be the complete opposite of what they seem. He is accepting that, and acknowledging that he has no control.

    General CommentLike everyone else has stated, it's a song about him finding out that people are not what they seem. And yes, he is accepting it. However I think there's a little more in the song than that.

    Specifically, I think it's about him being with a girl that he's completely in love with. The relationship was amazing to him, complete with their own special spots and secret meeting places. You know, the mushy romantic stuff. From the song, I'm thinking it's a hill in a park.

    And he went off touring and while he was gone she was messing around. Well, he came back and found out not only that she cheated on him, but she's been doing it since day one. And he realized that everything that made their relationship special to him were something she shared with everyone she's been with, not just something sacred to their relationship.

    "if mountains could talk, this one would share it's secrets with me of what it has seen of you and the way you move"

    And so when he comes back and finds all this out, he keeps her around for a bit and just tries to sneak around and catch her in the act. But then he realizes that just by following her around, he's making her rule his life and that's exactly what she wants. So he gives up and says you know what, she isn't worth it if she's doing this. And he leaves and goes back to his music.

    (Basically explained in the whole chorus)

    Finally, the third verse is just him saying how even though he's cut all ties, it still hurt him like hell and he got completely shit faced. Almost enough for him to erase her completely, but not quite and he's realizing that no amount of alcohol is going to make their memories go away because he was obviously more attached to her than she ever was to him.
