"We Will Walk" as written by David Martin Kahne, Rosenstein Ephraim, Josh Mayer, Matthew Miller and Aaron Dugan....
I told her you must go you can't stay here
She said, "I know since the death blow
My soul's been old like sand, I'm so tired
It's like my spirit expired"

Remember when I was just a child, yeah
Now I feel like a star at daybreak
'Bout to expire and get lost in the sun
Me and you we got to leave and just run and run

Don't wait for me while I'm down
'Cause I might not get up
All I have is right now
Gonna give you what I got

You are the o-only good thing that I have ever done
We will walk until my blood runs out
Until my heart is burnt you are not alone

(You are the only good thing that I have ever done)
Run, yeah, run, yeah, running away, come we stun you here to stay
Up and down so look both ways trying to live most everyday
If you don't well that's okay, bound to the one and will not sway

Found again his majesty record power radio play (we will walk until my blood runs out)
Climb and climb to outer space, give and take, it's time to taste
Make the best, don't leave no waste (until my heart is burnt you are not alone)
World moves fast, don't lose your place
Wanna build tall, gotta have a strong base
And play like kids and meditate

He sits on top of a mountain
Pumping blood through the veins of creation
Land and sky, he aches for her
But can't find his way, can't live no more

And I ache for her but can't find my way
I can't live no more, she is not alone
Just before the light goes away comes a child
That collects all the reasons to be

The laughs, the smiles, moments of clarity
Exchanging them for another day
Exchanging them for another day
And so my heart continues to say

You are the only good thing that I have ever done
We will walk until my blood runs out
Until my heart is burnt you are not alone

(You are the only good thing that I have ever done)
Here we go, it's you and me, gotta let go, gotta believe
Rip through negativity, find some place where we can be
Oh, I agree inevitably we can't stay here, it's time to leave

We will walk until my blood runs out (slip and slide the day has come)
Until my heart is burnt you are not alone (undone, bottoms up don't be a crumb, undumb)

(You are the only good thing that I have ever done)
She said, "We got to go, we can't stay here"
I said," I know but got no place to go
The nights are cold and we need a place to be"

(We will walk until my blood runs out, (until my heart is burnt you are not alone))
Remember when I was just a child
Now I feel like a star at daybreak 'bout to expire
And get lost in the sun
Me and you we gotta leave and just run and run

(You are the only good thing that I have ever done)
Run and run, run and run away
We can't stay, we can't stay

We will walk until my blood runs out (run, run)
Until my heart is burnt you are not alone

    General CommentSo I think this is about a man and his wife. The man has just lost someone extremely close to him (I think his mom).

    In the first verse he is coping with the loss and decides the best way to get over it is to just ignore it and just live in the moment. He is going to ignore the pain of the loss and just live it up with his wife.

    The second verse has two parts that are separated by "he sits on top of a mountain pumping blood through the veins of creation land and sky".

    The first part he is running away from the pain "run yeah, run yeah runnin' away" he is just trying to make the most of what he has while still not coping with the loss of his mother.

    The part that separates the two halves is when he and his wife conceive a child. He is reminded about the loss of his mom. Since he has not properly grieved yet he begins to dive into depression (could even be suicidal). Just as he is in his darkest hour his child is born and gives him a reason to live "just before the light goes away, comes a child that collects all the reasons to be. the laughs, the smiles, moments of clarity exchanging them for another day".

    Once he has a child, he and his wife are once again alive and better than ever. (hurray a happy ending!)

    As for the chorus I think this is his mothers dying words. They are haunting him throughout the song and once his child is born he finally realizes that he is exactly like her and that to him his child is "the only good thing that I have ever done"
