"Mine Is Yours" as written by and Jonathan Russell Nathan Willett....
You were changing colors like the leaves in fall
I was saving up for the long winter
Summers wind, hideout in my car
When it broke down we didn't care
We'd figure out another way to get me there

Mine is yours
What is mine is yours
What is mine is yours
What is mine is yours

A realistic love runs out of room
I try to talk big but my mouth don't move
'Cause I don't own the sun I don't own the moon
They only come out when they want to
They don't care whether I promised you
They only come out when they want to
They don't care whether I promised

What is mine is yours
What is mine is yours
What is mine is yours
What is mine is yours

You wanna fight about it
You wanna fight about it
You wanna fight about it
Come on, come on

I made you cry about it
I made you cry about it
I made you cry about it
Come on, come on
There was no other way
To let you in here to stay
We had to give it away
Come on, come on
And when we come up for air
And when we come up now we know

All my stones become your pearls
All of my trials are your treasures
All my dead you inherit
All of my crimson lines will shine

'Cause mine is yours
What is mine is yours
What is mine is yours
What is mine is yours
What is mine is yours is yours is yours is yours

    Whoa x4

    You were changing colors like the leaves in fall
    I was saving up for the long winter
    Summers we'd hide out in my car
    When it broke down we didn't care
    We'd figure out another way to get me there

    Mine is yours
    What is mine is yours x3

    A realistic love runs out of room
    I try to talk big but my mouth don't move
    Cause I don't own the sun I don't own the moon
    They only come out when they want to
    they don't care whether I promise you
    They only come out when they want to
    they don't care whether I promise

    What is mine is yours x4

    You wanna fight about it x3
    Come on come on
    I made you cry about it x3
    Come on Come on
    There was no other way to let you in here to stay we had to give it away
    Come on come on
    And when we come up for air x2
    And when we come up now we know

    All my stones become your pearls
    All of my trials are your treasures
    All my debt you inherit
    All of my clumsy lines will shine

    Cause mine is yours
    What is mine is yours x5

    Song Meaningthis song seems to be about falling in love and how when you do both people's belongings (and baggage) become each other's. pretty much the whole thing is just providing examples of that.

    My InterpretationI agree with what jbee said. Building on it a bit, I think this is a relationship moving past those 'dream' stages of the beginning where you're making out in the car all summer and dealing and helping each other with real problems.

    "Realistic love runs out of room." There comes a point where realism has to replace idealism in a relationship. He can promise the sun and moon to her, but he doesn't own them, they come out when they want to. Idealism can get in the way of realistic love so that it runs out of room.

    The last verse is piercing honesty. This song is a very mature definition of love.

    General CommentI think the line is "Summers we'd hide out in my car" as opposed to "Summer were high out in my car"
