"We May Be The Ones" as written by and Paul Westerberg....
They bought me a suit
Gave me fifty dollars
Gone today, I'll be here tomorrow
Need a leap of faith, or a jump of stupid
Either way, don't know what I'm doing

Time, in time
You hear my footsteps
Time, time
Baby, hear my footsteps

Well, it's heads, I win
Tails, we flip again
I bluffed and lost
Hated, so they win
Asking you, smile for the people
Just passing through the eye of a needle

Time, in time
You'll hear my footsteps
Time, time
In time, you'll hear my footsteps

Walk a thousand feet
I'm so afraid to be free

Won't wait for a girl
Honey you're mistaken
Weight of the world,
Leave my shoulders aching
Every night it's gone
Ain't sure what I had
I'm gonna clap for myself
Think with my hands
A leap of faith or a jump of stupid
Either way, don't know what I'm doing
If you follow me around
With a tape recorder
I'm sure you'll get a load of footsteps

Feel my footsteps

    General CommentTo me this song is about the reality of the world. Westerberg has a way with words that is raw, like the second line may be about people in college or being away from home for the first time. The song is just about how we (you) may be the one to change and alter this world.

    General CommentThis song seems to be about the feeling of every generation that they are going to surpass all previous ones. This thinking tends to recede as people get on in years
