"Shove" as written by Tom Delonge and Adam Willard....
Forget the things that you own
And travel almost anywhere you can go
Dance across the tree tips, set them ablaze
Soaking in their pleasant warm summer haze
And weeping on her streets and school city blocks
And finding streams on her while you're skipping rocks
And feeding on her touch as it will barely keep you alive

She said show me the world that's inside your head,
Show me the world that you see yourself, you could use Some help
'Cause sometimes it comes with a shove, when you fall in love

It can be so bold and so cavalier
To reach out to the fire her souls sending here
It can be like death that blows like a breeze
Making all ones strength go weak at the knees
I hate to feel the shallow ground giving way
Ive never let myself fall this much astray
And feeding on her touch is all one does to survive

She said show me the world that's inside your head,
Show me the world that you see yourself, you could use Some help
'Cause sometimes it comes with a shove, when you fall in love

She said show me the world that's inside your head,
Tell me your secrets of life and death, and your one regret
'Cause sometimes it comes with a shove, when you fall in love

She said show me the world that's inside your head,
Show me the world that you see yourself, you could use Some help
'Cause sometimes it comes with a shove, when you fall in love

She said show me the world that's inside your head,
Tell me your secrets of life and death, and your one regret
'Cause sometimes it comes with a shove, when you fall in love

If you're ever alone, then your heart will know
It can call to mine, and Ill be at your side
If you're ever alone, then your heart will know
It can reach to mine, Ill be at your side

    General CommentThis is an awesome song... Its about falling in love and getting to know somebody and traveling to far lands. I love angels and airwaves because they just know how to make you feel optimistic adventurous in an uncertain future. Its about meeting new people and getting to know them, and loving/accepting them for who they are. Its freakin awesome

    General CommentOh my God. This song is one of the most beautiful songs I've ever heard. The chorus made my eyes tear up a little.

    She said "Show me the world that's inside your head
    Show me the world that you see yourself
    You can use some help
    Cause sometimes it comes with a shove
    When you fall in love

    General CommentI think this is one of the best songs by AVA. This album has a different tone to it from the others but is still definitely AVA.

    I think is it about moving on more or less. How we can often find ourselves lost and when we start living we will find that everything seems to fall in place on its own, often times for the better.

    I don't know, that is my interpretation because that is how it kind of goes with me and even the people I know.

    General CommentI think it's about how sometimes you can find love when you least expect it or maybe you know sumone of the opposite sex, a friend maybe, and you just all of a sudden realize that you love them. "Cause sometimes it comes with a shove
    When you fall in love"

    General CommentThis song is gorgeous. I believe that it is about going through life enjoying it to the fullest never letting an opportunity pass you by, but at the same time never having stability or ever letting anyone into your life until that one special person comes along and finally "shoves" you into having the one thing that you never had saying let me in, let me know you, your world, and how you view yourself and let yourself become vulnerable. And as much as alot of people might hate me for this, it reminds me alot of the relationship they had made with Clark and Lana on smallville

    General Commentthis song reminds me of my boyfriend and i. he's away in the army, and this song shows the pain of missing someone far away, and worrying about them too. hes constantly on my mind.

    "And feeding on her touch, as it will barely keep you alive"
    he says im the only thing that keeps him going sometime, i think that line relates


    "To reach out to the fire her soul's sending her
    It can be like death that blows like a breeze
    Making all one's strength go weak at the knees
    I hate to feel the shallow ground giving way"
    descibes how i feel when he's leaving

    "
    If you're ever alone
    Then your heart will know
    It can call to mine
    I'll be at your side"
    even though we arent together physically, we always know we have each other for support and strength

    overall, a beautiful and touching song <3
