Your days in one
This day undone
(The kind that breaks under)
All day at once
(For me, for you)
I'm just too young
(And what of my heart)
This day was once
(Silence before)
All grace of lost
Can't wait at all
(Can't wait at all)
Temptation won

And what ever comes through the door
I'll see it face to face
All by your place

Sign me up Santa Fe
And call your son
Sign me up Santa Fe
On the cross Santa Fe
And all I want
Sign me up Santa Fe
And call your son

And I and I and I alone want you to know
And I and I and I alone
And I and I and I alone want you to know
And I and I and I alone

Your days in one
This day undone
(The kind that breaks under)
All day at once
(For me, for you)
I'm just too young
(And what of my heart)

Sign me up Santa Fe
And call your son
Sign me up Santa Fe
On the cross Santa Fe
And all I want
Sign me up Santa Fe
And call your son...

    He is from sante fe, thus a son of the city, and misses home. He's been touring and away too long and is home sick. At the same time he feels guilty for wanting to explore the world.

    Santa fe represents the singers past, which is trying to contact him (perhaps he left behind family members in santa fe? ) . There is something that needs to be communicated between the singer and those in santa fe

    The singer has experienced some hardships in his life. Now, he is going to santa fe to find his faith. This is how he can overcome his traumatic experiences

    I looked it up in a dictionary and it says that santa fe is the name for the country of the ungodly.

    The band is from santa fe and the lead singer is evidently relating his family experience through the lyrics. He's blurting out some random phrases but "call your son" sounds like it has to do with his complicated relationship with his father.
