"The Answer" as written by Vinny May, Jason Boland, Mark Prendergast and Stephen Garrigan....
Watch your step or you might fall
You act like you're a know-it-all
Yeah I used to do that, I used to be like that
I'm still a bit like that

You might think you found the one
Until your heart gets ripped and torn
Yeah I used to feel bad, I used to feel like that
I still feel a bit like that

But I'm not searching for the answer
I'm not looking for the truth
I'm just talking through a speaker
Because that's all that I have ever learned to do

Use your mind and make it talk
'Cause in this world it's all you've got
We all fall down from the highest clouds to the lowest ground

The loneliness is worst of all
When you've got no one else to call
Feeling kind of sad when the times are bad, the times are getting bad

But I'm not searching for the answer
No, I'm not looking for the truth
I'm just talking through a speaker
Because that's all that I could ever learn to do
Because that's all that I have ever learned to do

What about you?
What about you?
What about you?
What about you?
What about you?
What about you?
What about you?
What about you?

So watch your step or you might fall
You act like you're a know-it-all
Yeah I used to do that, I used to be like that
I'm still a bit like that

    My InterpretationThis song is about someone growing old, looking at someone who is a lot younger than them. They remember when they were their age and experienced the same things they did and is comparing both of their lives. They are saying that they've stopped questioning things and have learnt to accept things and that they are singing and voicing opinion because it is all they have taught themselves. They are then asking what is important to them and what they are good at and they should follow it.
