I can feel a new breeze
That will ease our minds
It's a different heartbeat
And the timing feels right

Gonna feed this hunger
Gonna quench my thirst
Though i know indulgence
It could make it much worse

We have talked it over
Cause the prize ain't small
But it will be worth it after all

We can cross the ocean
Take it day by day
We can stop our watches
And we'll never be late

We can have a daughter
We can have a son
We don't know tomorrow
But we'll do what seems right after all

    My InterpretationI believe this song is about the decision to have a baby. Or maybe they are already pregnant and they decide to keep it, despite they weren't really trying for a baby in the first place. They have talked about the possibility of having a baby, but the decision has been made for them, and they come to terms with it.

    The idea of a "different heartbeat" in my opinion points to this direction, not as a simple metaphore, but as a physical different heartbeat. Then again, in the part when the singer explains that they had talked it over, and the timing feels right. He's scared of the responsibility ("the prize ain't small" / "take it day by day") but he has probably wanted this for a long time ("Gonna feed this hunger / gonna quench my thirst"). The final lines "We can have a son / We can have a daughter" finally reveal this riddle. At least to me, they were the solution. From the idea of a new breeze, something brand new that will pull them out of a different situation they had been going through, probably, to all the little signs I sad before can't help but lead me to this interpretation.Even the rhythm points to something fragile, inconsistent, almost as if the author is still dreaming and doesn't really believe that it's actually happening.

    I hope it was clear enough, English is not my first language, but I wanted to leave my opinion on such a sweet, gentle song that had none. Beautiful song, one of the best discoveries I made lately.
