It happened sooner than soon,
made paper plants in your room,
then filled the sky with balloons
from your window.

    General Commentwow i can't believe no one's commented, i guess because there aren't many words. but it's a fantastic song. it's these little simple things that mean a lot, that's all. to me anyway.

    General CommentI agree with you. To me, the paper plants are refering to something fragile that you must tend to and take care of. But he or she didn't, and balloons flew out their window.. meaning that the oppertunity was lost. And he or she knew this was all going to happen sooner or later.
    good song.

    General CommentIt happened sooner than soon, - Before you know it, It happened
    made paper plants in your room, -money grows on trees, you get rich
    then filled the sky with balloons
    from your window. - Your life is now filled with happiness

    General CommentThe things that you think about, the things you want in your life. Before you know it they happen. Before you know it or sooner than soon.

    One of the nice things in life is money. Some say money brings happiness. Made paper plants in your room. To me I feel like that means money.

    The baloons coming from your room which is now filled with paper plants, coming from a room or coming from a life filled with happiness. Blocks out the sky with your happiness.

    Blinded by happiness. The baloons represent your life and your joy.

    General Commenti think its about growing up. it happened to fast, we used to be young and played, but now we are lifting up as we get older, and like balloons, drifting apart.

    General CommentI read this as being about the joy of creating something yourself, the whole DIY ethics of production. If youve ever made handmade paper you know what i mean. Then distributing them to the world below and watching the sky fill with balloons, so to speak, is a pretty good feeling.
    I dunno. maybe not.
