And talk forever just to pass the time
I would smile as the shivers and chills run down my spine
When your eyes are locked on mine
It seems that Adam wants to tell us something, and it would be pretty interesting, or we wouldn't have our eyes locked on him.
Country life is much slower than city life. He wants those who live in cities to slow down.
"There" refers to whatever he wants to tell us. We also know that whatever "there" is, it happens while we sleep.
It doesn't really have any meaning, it's the limited refrain this song has.
And it gets brighter then you and I will ever know
I assumed the "ruby glow" to be the soul. It can shine bright with love and compassion.
And it's everything we've never known
Now this is when it gets interesting. What exactly is "walking alone?" Is this the thing he wants to tell us? During this "thing" he wants to tell us, there's a rushing sound. And we have no idea about it. All while our eyes are closed.
And I would be the pavement beneath your feet
This is really abstract, but I believe this means that he wants to guide us, as we would be the pavement beneath our feet.
This ties back to "fill metro skies with country air." He wants us to slow down.
About the missing puzzle pieces and cloudy question marks
It still looks a bit surreal
Whatever this thing is, it's going to shock us. And even if we eventually figure it all out, it would still be... out of this world.
So concentrate and you'll feel me everywhere
First off, where does he disappear to? Logically, to the "thing" he wants to tell us. The 2nd line is unclear: "Concentrate." Concentrate what?
If you're lost when you close your eyes I'll meet you there
Okay, this implies that this "thing" cannot be attained by just closing our eyes, as we have the possibility of becoming "lost." He wants to guide us there.
I'll meet you there
You could be anywhere
This rules out the possibility that he's talking about a specific person (a girl, most likely) as a lot of people seem to think. But really, this song has nothing to do with a girl.
I'll meet you there
There exists the potential for us to be much more than we currently are.
The only question that remains is, what is the thing? Let's review:
-We would be interested in it (therefore concluding we don't what it is already, also he says "it's everything we've never known")
-It happens when our eyes are closed
-There's a rushing sound that's associated with it
-We have to slow down our lives for us to experience it
-It would look surreal
I love this song.
