All I’ve seen is all I dream
See animals & tambourines, & all I can hear is light
Feel the winds & wake the hour
A morning kiss to have not far, & all I can see is night

Tree-lined in city colours, yeah he meant well, she glances wide

He left the room where I was
Hide the light, hide the light
Too much to dream last night
Too much for waking eyes

Free to play, remember days
& set the air, control the waves, & all I can hear is light
Talk of rain through sleepy-times my chosen whims show I’m a child, & all I can see is night

Tree-lined in city colours, yeah he meant well, she glances wide

He left the room where I was
Hide the light, hide the light
Too much to dream last night
Too much for waking eyes

    Song MeaningThe acoustic is definitely my favourite version and my favourite song on Victorious Cupid. To undersatnd it i think you have to have the different vocals patterns betweenthe singers.

    I'm not clear of the meaning but it is obvious through a literal meaning that there is a male and female with some form of childhood regression.
    At a guess i'm thinking childhood sweethearts so a possible end of relationship.
    This is indicated by 'yeah he meant well, she glances wide', possibly a low point and 'A morning kiss to have not far, & all I can see is night' another low point as there has been no morning kiss so for the female it is still nighttime.
    The age may be indicated through the lines 'Free to play, remember days' and 'through sleepy-times my chosen whims show I'm a child'.
    In the chorus it says 'He left the room where I was. Hide the light, hide the light', I know in circumstances when an ex has walked in then out and i've wanted to crawl into darkness to find safety and escape reality.
