Today I have a new chance
The ink's wet as I think back
All I know who could never be
When all I knew was the empty part of me

The wind blew and it carried
You to me, you're my only
I keep my heart on a string for you
I keep my eye on the narrow not to stray

'Cause you know me better
And you know I,
I'm shouting your name

Out loud, so loud
It's a chemical reaction
I can feel the time just slipping by

Loud, so loud
It's a chemical reaction
I hold your name up to the sky, so high

Good God child, have you noticed
The ceiling never closes?
I hope you feel so safe with me
It could last for our lives
Oh, can't you see?

Cause we'll keep the water from running dry
Keep the water from rushing to you eyes

'Cause you know me better
And you know I,
I'm shouting your name

Out loud, so loud
It's a chemical reaction
I can feel the time just slipping by

Loud, so loud
It's a chemical reaction
I hold your name up to the sky, so high

'Cause you know me better
And you know I,
I'm shouting your name

Out loud, so loud
It's a chemical reaction
I can feel the time just slipping by

Loud, so loud
It's a chemical reaction
I hold your name up to the sky, so high

    My InterpretationThis was such an unexpected gem from the album!

    Anyways, the song is obviously about being in love with someone and er, doing things that you do when you love someone. It's really hard for me to come to terms with this because I cannot even begin to see any of the DuPree siblings in that light, but she is married, after all.
