"We Walk" as written by and Allen Toussaint....
You never alter, you're always you
Everything's breaking, but I don't care
Smash the rest up, burn it down
Put us in the corner 'cause we're into ideas

Take these edges, they're inside out
No one will notice, they're looking elsewhere
We can be honest, we call it off
We've got the choice if it all goes wrong

[Chorus]
We walk
We walk
We walk
We wa-alk

You see the changes in things that come
It's how you deal with it when switching off
Make a decision, a precondition
We've got the choice if it all goes wrong

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
Where nothing makes you feel good then nothing you feel good [Repeat x8]

We've got the choice if it all goes wrong

[Chorus: Repeat x3]

    General Commentthe use of pronouns confirms that the girl is complaining about her relationship in the song. She is finding faults in her guy/girl and at the same time trying to be practical about the issue.

    the lyrics are cleverly written as it deviates the listeners from her personal issue, towards a more "i-can-relate-to-this-song" feeling...as simply translated this song can be about- taking risks in life or "coming-out-of-the-box" ....and even if it fails we carry on....

    I,personally, really like the line- "Put us in corner...Cuz we're into ideas" Free thinking is not accepted by all society!

    General CommentI'm happy to be the first on to comment on this song! It's my favorite by the Ting Tings. Recently discovered them, and I absolutely love them.

    Just the combination of the beat, the tune, and the lyrics of this song is so great.

    General Commentit means you should do things that you wanna do, but when it turn out wrong and you don't know what to do anymore, you could always walk away from it.

    General CommentI think it may be about generation Y? where we have so many choices and ideas etc. We know what we want and when it doesn't turn out we move on to new ideas?
