"No More Keeping My Feet on the Ground" as written by Guy Rupert Berryman, Jonathan Mark Buckland, William Champion and Christopher Anthony John Martin....
Sometimes I wake up when I'm falling asleep
I think that maybe the curtains are closing on me
But I wake up, yes I wake up smiling

[Chorus]
So what I feel fine
I'm okay, I've seen the lighter side of life
I'm alright I feel good
So ill go, ill try to start moving

Sometimes I wake up and I'm falling asleep
But I've got to get going, so much that I wanted to do
But I wake up smiling

And this could be my last chance
Of saving my innocence
And this could be my last chance
No more keeping my feet on the ground

Sometimes I feel the chance is surprising
Surprisingly good to be moving around
And I move, and I wake up smiling

[Chorus]

And this could be my last chance
Of saving my innocence
And this could be my last chance
No more keeping my feet on the ground

And there's nothing to keep them
Nothing to keep them down
And there's nothing to keep them
There's nothing to keep them down.

    General CommentThis song seems like an older version of Clocks - particularly the opening lyrics ... "sometimes I wake up and I'm falling asleep" remind me of "lights go out and I can't be saved." I don't know why - they just do.

    But the song is a bit ironic. Even though he's happy where he is, he's restless ... wants to get moving, take his chances. In wone breath, it's all "no more keeping my feet on the ground" and in the next, it's "i'm not gonna keep on moving."

    It's all very paradoxical. And well written.

    General CommentI agree with you completely, pyramusthis. This someone is happy where they are, yet are restless despite. It sounds as if they're battling with themself inside, something we can all relate to.

    General CommentThis song is inspirational, because here is this person who thinks the "curtains are closing on [them]" and yet they still wake up smiling, wanting to move on because "this could be [their] last chance of saving [their] innocence". Yet, what Pyramusthis says is accurate, because the person says, "So what? I feel fine," yet it seems like a false way of giving oneself hope and trying to convince oneself that they are, indeed, fine. It is indeed a contradiction in itself, yet the way that the song sounds blindly to the ear is absolutely inspirational.

    My InterpretationI Adore this song . I have my own interpretation of the lyrics :
    " Sometimes I wake up and I'm falling asleep
    I think that maybe the curtains are falling on me"

    That is while totally awake, his brain kind of "shuts down" and he is off to another world .
    I mean, everybody has his or her own problems and "gotta get going", yet pressing the pause button can make him smile . It helps him to "start moving on" again .
    But soon innocence desapear, it's all an illusion and he has to go back to the real world, the active life .

    General CommentI like this song. It was kind of hard to find though. The "Yellow" single is a great CD. Although it only has 3 songs. I like the way this song sounds and it makes me feel good when I am stressed sometimes.
