Call and listen
Calling out your name
Trying to imitate myself

Forget me in the middle
Shining every light upon it
Still I miss the way you'd hold me close
In a cold wind
Caught you in a room, staring at the light
I've been all night
Is it the life that we're just living in?

Still I wanna celebrate love, I
I've been rolling on sixty, I can die on the floor
I've been shaken and delivered
There'a a girl out there with silence in her eyes
The truth is in the dark

Yeah, I've seen the moon comin' in view
Yeah, I need you, I'm coming in, too
In view

Ain't no wind that I can feel in the way, in the way
In the freezing rain
Turn your head my way and my heart and look and see
And I look away
Ain't no wind that I feel, flyin' with no way to lose
Ain't no shame to hold you, to hold you here, for losing you

Hiding from an enemy
Something inside me that I ain't
Hard to see clear these days
Darkness on my mind
As I stare into the ocean floor
And I wonder where I once was
Was I falling through the air tonight
And crumble into your arms?
Is this love?
Are you sure?
Is it something
You can control?

Out of time, yeah
I'm in chains
I'm in love
I'm in pain

All these changes everywhere
Just go ahead and take my hand
Pull me close don't let me go
Try to understand
I believe in all the power
In doing what we can do
We can try to learn to make it through
Cover the other side

And I'm feeling it all coming in here
How do we decide what we can do?
I don't read your mind, can we choose?

    My InterpretationI think this song speaks about a long distance relationship, and how complicated is to endure the hardships and sadness if your loved one has gone away probably forever. The character from the song is calling and trying to listen for an answer back but the person he longs for has already moved on or is probably too busy forgetting him in the middle of everything.

    Still he is sure of what he feels, and he's not ashamed of holding her close in his heart even thought he doesn't know what she has been up to cause the truth is in the dark.

    Hiding from an enemy as he explains he's well aware his feelings could turn into hatred or resentment and he's at the bottom of his mental state, crushed by the overwhelming weight of reality, not even knowing where he is in his life and wishing to be received in her arms.

    I think the chain in this song is not love itself but the uncertainty of affection by a person that has gone far away both physically and emotionally.

    General CommentRollin on 60 is a gang reference. The singer is likely sentenced to a long prison sentence for a gang related crime. While in prison he calls the name of his love in his cell or in solitary, trying to imitate himself because he has no one else to talk to. He asks his love to forget about him on the middle of his prison term and move on with her life. But he can’t stop thinking about her and how she would hold him close. He remembers coming home to find her staring at the light after he was out all night with the gang. Is that the life they’re destined to live? He almost died. He is arrested, shaken and delivered by the experience. His love is out there, silently waiting for him or hiding the truth about his past. While in prison he turns his life around. Maybe he finds religion. He stares down a darkness as deep and black as the bottom of an ocean as he comes to terms with his past. He’s “in chains,” in shackles I’m the prison. Finally he is released. He sees all the changes that have occurred while he was incarcerated, not only within himself, but his friends, family and the city he lives in, and the world. He Sees the power he has to make better choices. He has chosen to live a better life and asks his love to choose him.
