HEY CHILD
X Ambassadors Lyrics


I heard you got arrested in the street last night
You called me with a voice I didn't recognize
So you're numbin' the pain, stuck in your ways
Since we were kids it was like this
But I will be there, I will be there for you

Hey child, hey child
We were born wild
Let your neon lights
Keep shinin' bright
Oh, hey child, hey child
We were born wild
Let your neon lights
Keep shinin' bright
Oh, oh

Back in the '06, sellin' weed to the freshman kids
You were the end of my aim whenever separate
And I know you've been hurtin', think you deserve it
How did it end up like this?
Everything will be fine if you just get through tonight

Hey child, hey child
We were born wild
Let your neon lights
Keep shinin' bright, oh
Hey child, hey child
We were born wild
Let your neon lights
Keep shinin' bright
Oh, oh
Oh, oh
Oh, oh

My brother's got a baby on the way now
I hope that you'll meet him some day
I hope he don't make the same mistakes we made
And when I look him in the eyes, I'll say

Hey child, hey child
You were born wild
Let your neon lights
Keep shinin' bright, oh
Hey child, hey child
We were born wild
Let your neon lights
Keep shinin' bright
Oh, oh

Hey, hey child
Oh, oh
Hey, hey child
You're born wild
(We were born, we were born wild)
Let your neon lights
Keep shinin' bright
Oh, oh

This song is definitely about Noah. He got arrested and I haven't seen him with the band since. I've been there from the beginning and in my stupid interpretation he is calling out to him but not in an obvious way until you get to the neon lights usually associated with bars and Sam being called at night and he couldn't recognize Noah's voice because he was arrested and drunk. I feel this so much and know the results of addiction. In the end that's why I believe he is crying because they grew up best friends and to see him in the pain he is in when he never knew is powerful but assuring him he will always be there for his friend. Again my stupid interpretation but had to post it. Love and peace to all
