"PPP" as written by and Victoria Legrand Alex Scally....
Out in the heartland
I looked into your eyes
And I asked
"Are you ready?
Ready for this life?"

Did you see it coming
It happened so fast
The timing was perfect
Water on glass

Like tracing figure
Eights on ice in skates so well
And if this ice should break it would be my
My mistake

Between the cities
Between the thrills
There's something inside you
It doesn't sleep well

It won't last forever
Or maybe it will
The white clothes they gave you
You wear them so well

Someone once told me
In love, that you must
Place all you're given
In infinite trust

Yet I'm tracing figure
Eights on ice in skates so well
And if this ice should break it would be my
My mistake

    General CommentThis song and astronaut again give me the notion that the subject is of a person in the military. There are several hints in the song that fit perfectly to that notion.

    "Are you ready, ready for this life?" Majority consensus is military life can be a rude awakening.

    "Between the cities, between the thrills" Living in a military town, many military personnel travel and are known for their off time of partying.

    "It won't last forever or maybe it will. The white clothes they gave you, you wear them so well." Maybe this person will stay in as long as there enlistment states or prolong it and make it a career. Whites are a name of one of the Navy's uniforms.

    Giving the analogy of skating on ice making infinite signs, states that I'll keep the course of love but I chose to be on a dangerous surface. I know this person is leaving yet they could potentially die, cheat (which unfortunately the Navy has a terrible record of that). Yet that's not going to stop her from love and if it all goes to hell she will own up to it.

    My InterpretationThis song gives me so many feels, it's freaking beautiful. I think as a general concept that it talks about some realtionship that you think it will last forever, but the two people involved are just not meant to be. It's probably about a marriage though.
    It gets me rly emotional. Amazingly poetic, beautiful lyrics.

    General CommentThis song makes me so emotional, I think its about a couple that fell in love but know that it's bound to end. Nothing lasts forever.
