What do you want was never answered
then some things were handed out
we got weird and fake instructions
but somehow we planned around
then we got all nervous baby
I don't have a heart like you

And so we listened now if nature
were just loud enough and ran
and I know I shouldn't be here but I want
to be your man
suddenly I'm lost but I just want to be a
part of true

So suddenly we are gone
looking out for some wave
you and I, we belong on these wild and
wonderful trails

You're just a singer wanting silence
I just have illegal thoughts
I will kill you if I take you
but now this is not enough
there will be a moment when I ask you to
believe in love

And I could probably be patient but we just
don't have
a hell a lot of time it's getting light and I just
want you in the night
we will all be caught and they won't let me
hang around with you

So suddenly we are gone
looking out for some wave
you and I we belong on these wild and
wonderful trails

I could just leave tomorrow but baby
letting you go
all these songs would be just of sorrow
and we have no idea but then what else
do we know
we let it out to let it ride

And we are winners going out there
as we're stealing dreamy thoughts
they will heal you when you find them
and it's never just enough
then we get all nervous baby
I don't have a plan, do you?

So suddenly we are gone
looking out for some wave
you and I, we belong on these wild and
wonderful trails

I could just leave tomorrow but baby
letting you go
all these songs would be just of sorrow
and we have no idea but then what else
do we know
we let it out to let it ride

    My InterpretationThis is my favorite song off the new album. It seems to be very straight forward guy-girl falling in love song. I feel that one of the themes of the song is the search for purpose or identity. I see the message being to let go of that pressure of defining your purpose and just "let it ride". To accept the chaos and acknowledge that we have little control allows us to have love and great experiences.
    The whole album seems to be about knowing our grim circumstances, but ultimately having a positive outlook on life. Absolutely amazing album!
