How did I end up here?
Closer to nowhere
In the middle of nothing
and I'm one step back from where I was
Spinning in circles gets old after a while

And you say if I fall I will
Fall straight into your arms
and should I trip over my feet
and if I start to slip I will
Slip right onto my knees
Into the centre of your hands

'Cause maybe someday I could learn to trust you
and just stop thinking with my head
'Cause maybe someday I could learn to let go
I lose control
But tell me what is wrong with that?

Why do I have to know everything?
and why does everything always have to make sense?
Why do I always have to have you figured out?
'Cause I just want to take your hand

And you say if I fall I will
Fall straight into your arms
should I trip over my feet
and if I start to slip I will
Slip right onto my knees
Into the centre of your hands

'Cause maybe someday I could learn to trust you
and just stop thinking with my head
'Cause maybe someday I could learn to let go
I lose control
But tell me, what is wrong with that?

What's wrong with that?
What's wrong with that?
What's wrong with that?
What's wrong with that?

What's wrong with
Maybe someday, I could learn to trust you
and just stop thinking with my head
Maybe someday I could learn to let go
I lose control
But tell me, what is wrong with that?

What's wrong with that?
What's wrong with that?
What's wrong with that?
What's wrong with that?

What's wrong with that?

    must say i prefer the DLD version to no name face one...i guess it could be about God, and how its sometimes hard to put all your faith in him...but equally could be about an uneasy realtionship. i think a lot of DLD is heavily religious compared to their recent stuff though, so maybe the first idea. great song.

    I think this song is about learning how to trust in a relationship instead of always trying to read the other person's actions and motives all the time. And just learning to trust your instincts.

Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.
