The third original song released in 2016 by The Chainsmokers, "All We Know" tells a story of lovers growing apart. Chainsmokers tweeted: "It's about the hardships of relationships but never giving up on your ride or die." New Jersey born and LA-based singer-songwriter Phoebe Ryan croons the verses and the hook with The Chainsmokers' Drew Taggart. It marks the second time Taggart has sung on one of the duo's tracks, following "Closer." As a songwriter, Phoebe Ryan has written for artists such as Melanie Martinez ("Teddy Bear") and Britney Spears ("Man On The Moon"). She recalled the collaboration to Billboard magazine:

"I can't remember exactly the day or what I was doing, but when I sat down and listened to that song it really made me feel something. It's so honest. It says everything in a poetic way, while still being very straightforward and to the point. I recorded the demo, and they called me, saying, 'We need to record the vocals for this tomorrow.' That's how fast they work." The Rory Kramer-directed video follows a distraught young man, played by actor Casey Deidric who embarks on a journey after receiving some bad news about a friend.

The Chainsmokers duo make an appearance at 00:45 buying beer at a roadside convenience store. Phoebe Ryan also has a brief cameo as the cashier who checks them out.

Music video

The music video for the song directed by Rory Kramer was released to YouTube on November 17, 2016. The music video included cameo of The Chainsmokers as customers and Phoebe Ryan as a cashier. The video begins with a man (portrayed by Casey Deidrick) fleeing out from his girlfriend's house after receiving a desperate phone call. He buys a bottle of liquor in a store and then smashes the bottle, his phone, and a trash can cover. Feeling drawn out, he hitchhikes a car as the sun was about to rise. The video ends with his footage of walking on a mountain trail as cutbacks of his prior events last night were played in rewind, culminating in meeting his girlfriend back at the mountain peak. The video's shooting method is found footage, in which a camera is strapped to Casey's waist to record the music video.


Lyrics

Fighting flames of fire
Hang onto burning wires
We don't care anymore
Are we fading lovers?
We keep wasting colors
Maybe we should let this go

We're falling apart, still we hold together
We've passed the end, so we chase forever
'Cause this is all we know
This feeling's all we know

I'll ride my bike up to the road
Down the streets right through the city
I'll go everywhere you go
From Chicago to the coast
You tell me, “Hit this and let's go
Blow the smoke right through the window”
'Cause this is all we know

'Cause this is all we know
'Cause this is all we know

Never face each other
One bed, different covers
We don’t care anymore
Two hearts still beating
On with different rhythms
Maybe we should let this go

We're falling apart, still we hold together
We've passed the end, so we chase forever
'Cause this is all we know
This feeling's all we know

I'll ride my bike up to the road
Down the streets right through the city
I'll go everywhere you go
From Chicago to the coast
You tell me, “Hit this and let's go
Blow the smoke right through the window”
'Cause this is all we know

'Cause this is all we know
'Cause this is all we know
