It was a wild idea to start
We were lost in an hour, every thing came part
In the middle of nowhere
Oh man hey look where we are

I know your teeth are shut and proud
But there are rhythms in the city make your head feel loud
Uh-huh so get it out, get it out

You are a long ways up river from home
Right here this water is mean but it's the same as your own
You better swim for your life
It's both at the same time

It was a wild idea to start
A drip on the head got it wet in the heart
And it looked just like a river but was a freeway in the dark
Oh in the dark
Oh were you always so ready oh
Oh were you always so ready oh
I never want to call it off
I never want to call it off oh
I've never been that ready oh oh
I've never been this ready
In my life

    General Commenti cant im the first one to write something. especially since its not just on their ep.
    i think that it means that the relationship that started was a bit unconventional, and everything kind of confusing, and they had no idea of what was happening, and now after all the confusion they reflect on how far they've gotten.
    in the second stanza, he is probably saying that the girl he is with is very quiet and keeps to herself, often not opening to israel. but everything going on in her life was so stressing that he wanted to be her relief where she could open up to.
    third stanza: she's no longer in her comfort zone where she started before they became involved, and things are strange being with him, but they are in it together and they have to balance life and love at the same time.
    fourth stanza: reflecting on their relationship again, he notes that it was strange at first, but something happened that made them fall in love. the part about looking like a river might be that the relationship looked bumpy and slow going at first (as rivers tend to be) but then turned out to be a swift moving, smooth freeway. in the last part, "i've never been this ready" hes never been in such a deep and great love as he is now, and he doesn't ever want to not be with her. he wants to do something that he was never quite so ready of before..... mariage.
