"Be the Young" as written by William Ryan Key, Ryan Michael Mendez, Sean T. O'donnell, Longineu Warren Iii Parsons and Sean Michael Wellman-mackin....
I made these wishes with you
Went coast to coast
And we both felt so alive (so alive)
We traded safe for something we just had to be
And we almost lost our minds (lost our minds)
But we're still here searching

This is loud
This is cold
This is endless and I know
Growing up has just begun
But there's a place
We could find
Where this pain is useless
And we'll forever be the young

Summer came and flew by twice as fast
It was close enough to feel
And after all this waiting for skies to fall
I need this to be real
Oh, please let it be real

This is loud
This is cold
This is endless and I know
Growing up has just begun
(Growing up has just begun)
But there's a place
We could find
Where this pain is useless
And we'll forever be the young
(Forever be the young)

Where I was broken I am healed
I learned to fight
I learned to feel
And I can't believe my eyes
You are still here next to me
All I need you're all I see
In this life we hope to find

This is loud
This is cold
This is endless and I know
Growing up has just begun
(Growing up has just begun)
But there's a place
We could find
Where this pain is useless
And we'll forever be the young
(Forever be the young)

This is loud
This is cold
This is endless and I know
(We'll forever be the young)
This is loud
This is cold
This is endless and I know
(We'll forever be the young)
It's endless and I know

    My InterpretationFirst off, I absolutely love this song.

    To me, it's about having someone, or even a group of people you love around you and just living life. Being young of course and having adventure and putting your all into whatever you do in life. It's a happy tune :)

    General CommentLove this song, it's the perfect ending song for the album. It's got powerful music and the lyrics are optimistic ones about being young and living life. Such a good song! : )

    My InterpretationThis song talks about the bands journey together over the years.
    "I made these wishes with you, went coast to coast" --This talks about their childhood dreams of becoming rock stars and achieving it and touring the nation/world
    "We traded safe for something we just had to be. " Talks about how they dropped out of school to pursue their dreams risking everything.
    "And we almost lost our minds. But we're still here searching." --Talks about the hiatus and how they almost lost their friendship but they're back in pursuit of their dreams.

    "Where I was broken I am healed. I learned to fight I learned to feel" --Their time apart taught them about themselves.
    "And I cant believe my eyes, You are still here next to me, all I need you're all I see In this life we hope to find." They never thought they'd be where they are now pursuing their dreams.

    I love this song and this band. Definitely one of the top 5 songs they have written.

    General CommentI think it's about a girl from his childhood summer holiday.
    "Summer came and flew by twice as fast"

    They live their own different life and they didn't met a long time. He misses her ("this pain"), but he know somehow they'll find a way to meet.

    "But there's a place We could find
    Where this pain is useless
    And we'll forever be the young"

    Than somehow he find a way to meet her and praying to turn this out good

    "I need this to be real
    Oh, please let it be real"

    Than his dreams come true:

    "Where I was broken I am healed"
    "And I can't believe my eyes
    You are still here next to me"
