Rilo Kiley – Go Ahead lyrics

If you want to find yourself by travelling out west
Or if you want to find somebody else that's better
Go ahead
Go ahead

If you want to buy a brand new fancy automobile
Or if you want to build a place up in coldwater canyon
Go ahead
Go ahead
Go ahead
I wish you would
Go ahead

If you want to hold your own hand going up that cliff
Or if you want to just hold back cause you ain't up to it
Go ahead
Go ahead
Go ahead
Be my guest
Go ahead

If you want to hold on to the first girl that you meet
Or if you want to settle down and plant roses at my feet
Go ahead
Go ahead
Go ahead
I wish you would
Go ahead

If you want to have your cake and eat it too
And if you want to have other people watch you while you eat it
Go ahead
Go ahead
Go ahead
Be my guest
Go ahead

If you want better things
I want you to have them
If you want better things
Then I want you to have them
Go ahead
Go ahead
Go ahead
I wish you would
Go ahead
Go ahead
I wish you would
Go ahead

    The singer is very much in love with person she is writing about. She would love to spend the rest of her life with him.
    However, she is putting her desires for the relationship on hold waiting for her mate to make some kind of committment. She hits a breaking point and instead of really venting her frustration tries to sell it to him that she just wants him to do what makes him happy even if it means leaving the relationship.
    In reality, this person she is singing about is selfish lazy and wants to have everything both ways (have your cake and eat it too). She sounds a little irritated and annoyed when she sings that line in particular.
    This is a great song and really defines the times where many men want a relationship but don't want to commit.
