Whenever I wake up
Try and take the shape of
Turn into the whole wide world I made up

Off
The lights are golden
Off
The lights were golden
Off

Whenever I wake up
Try and take the shape of
Turn into the whole wide world I made up

    General CommentI love this song. Too bad it\'s Adidas... Spike Jonze directed the commercial. I think they\'re (Jonze and Karen O) is a couple?

    General CommentThis song is great in that commercial. Since this is "Song Meanings", I'm going to guess this song is about living in a fantasy world. "Turn into the whole wide world I made up."

    General Commentso what if it was in a commercial..

    Dang, I'd let Spike Jonze use my music in anything he wanted. because :

    Spike Jonze is amazing.

    and so is Karen O.


    and that is their job.
    makingmusic and
    directing.


    At least Adidas chose 2 tasteful components for their advertisement.

    General CommentYeah, the person that wrote this song deffinatly lives in their head, as do I...

    But then it links with the adidas motto: Impossible is Nothing.

    Which kinda kills it throught commericalising, and advertising... But whatever, the song still makes me drift off.

    General CommentI never heard this song on the commercial, but I downloaded it and it is my absolute favorite song that I have ever heard Karen O sing. It's so haunting and the person in this song is me and you and you and me
    Wonderful song.
