She is a dying dandelion floating on the breeze
Swirling sweetly in the evening
She is the stars glowing gorgeously
She is the sloping clouds

Forever scrolling
Unfolding

She is the sun burned blue and shadows on the moon
She is the morning dew
Dangling on leaves leaking into streams

Forever flowing
Unfolding
No one can say her name

Now she sits and sings something about my dreams
Hours go by before she looks at me
She breaks my heart
As I open my eyes to drink the melon sky

    General CommentOne of my favorite song off saves the day's new album. I useally keep it on repeat. Well its obviously about a girl you can get that much from the "SHE" parts.

    She is a dying dandelion floating on the breeze

    sounds like shes losing herself. I meen being called a dying dandelion cant be good. So i take it shes fadeing away.

    Unfolding

    shes unfolding everything is going wrong. Yeah hes fadeing away...

    Hours go by before she looks at me
    She breaks my heart

    She cant even look at him. Shes too ashamed of herself maybe.

    She breaks my heart

    and it breaks his heart that she cant really see how good she really is and how worthy she is.

    just my opinion on it. in a round about way thats what i think chris meens

    General CommentI don't know, "SHE" is probably just a metaphor for someone Chris loves, not necessarily a boy or girl. I think you're right about the lyrics in how she thinks she's unworthy or ashamed, but I think is referring to his audience as a whole, like everyone that listens to Saves the Day and thinks of them as a seperate and more important being. I think he's trying to say that the audience is as important as the band.

    General Commenti absolutely adore this song. the lyrics just plant a beautiful image in my head and i think of some utopia of mine. it's so gorgeous. i think it's about nothing else than a girl or someone chris loves very much.

    General Commenti think the "hours go by before she looks at me" is more about how she doesn't pay him any attention and isn't into him like he is into her. this song is beautiful. it flows together perfectly.
