Claire's turning blonde for the summer, I guess
The sunlight just soaks into her hair
And she sits next to me on the motorboat
And shyly replies as to which boy she likes
At her school

So I am reminded of things I've forgotten
The way doors can open and people just walk in
It's not unexpected, no, it's just how you planned it
I'm beginning to think that it might never happen
But now it is happening

There's a show we can see at the base outside of town
Where planes, they turn circles in the air
I watch you stand next to me with your hand over your mouth
And join the crowd's heavy gasp
One for each time they pass overhead

So we've been selected in this beautiful lottery
We struggled so long, but it ended so easy
It's starting to suface, all golden and god-like
This feeling we had every day and every night
It bursts in an energy
A door, it is opening

    General Commentthis song made me think of rediscovering how you used to feel when you were young and everything was so fresh and new...the guy in this song realizes this after spending time with a little girl and he almost sees the world through her eyes or at least through his eyes when he was young again...he feels like he has a new outlook on life as a result, and there are suddenly so many new opportunities/endless possibilities ...just like there seemed to be when he was younger. the energy is his potential finally shining through unencumbered by the jadedness of life one eventually acquires..
