"All the Way" as written by Amy Elizabeth Ray and Emily Ann Saliers....
I wasn't looking to shift my direction
My eyes straight ahead hands ten and two
The gravity of our first connection
Veering off the road and into you
All the people drive by slowly gawking at the scene
Of the smoldering inevitable spark and gasoline

All the way I met you head on full speed
At the heart the blue flame burns
All the way I took the crash course impact
But have I learned all that I'm supposed to learn

No amount of playing safe could save me from this day
The head seeking path of my trajectory
Didn't we cooly divest of predestination
Slamming into futures we can't see
I know what can happen when there's more than meets the eye
But there's no way to avoid it just get in the car and drive

All the way I met you head on full speed
At the heart the blue flame burns
All the way I took crash course impact
But have I learned all that I'm supposed to learn

It makes me laugh, we?re talking over tea
When I can still smell the smoke on my sleeve
Steaming like gun smoke the wreckage of our past
The scene of a crime I still can't leave
Oh you and me, we should let well enough be
But each revisitation points to clues
There's the oil slick of uncertainty
And warning signs back there we didn't use
At least we laugh about it now how we escaped alive
It's remarkable the mess we make and what we can survive

(repeat chorus)

    My OpinionThis song always hit close to home to me! It's definitely one of their most straight-forward and easy to understand lyrics, but it paints such a vivid and accurate visual for the situation.

    Even at the end, when you see the passion has simmered down into a warm, rich love, you can still see how much they want one another and how much they've bonded. It's a very sweet song about the rare situation of explosive passion not ending badly.
