"Eclipsed" as written by and Clarkson Lauzon....
We love our tradiges
We're both broken in our own little ways
We're broken, but we fit together just right
You know I saw the black inside your eyes
I saw they were eclipsed by mine...and they looked just right

when our lights meet, will you know me then
And will you want to know it?
It feels like I've known you for so long
When our lights meet, will you want me then
And will you ever know it?
It seems like you've know me for so long

I love your analogies
We're both crazy in our own little ways
We talk about the future and our past lives
I know I loved you then, I know I'd love you know
I know I'll love you then...i know I love you now

when our lights meet, will you know me then
And will you want to know it?
It feels like I've known you for so long
When our lights meet, will you want me then
And will you ever know it?
It seems like you've know me for so long
It seems like I've known you for so long
You can't have everything you want when you want it
I will be everything you want when you want it
Wait for me, trust for me, fall for me
Even when you don't know you're falling for me
Will you fall for it, if it should it'll come around again
But don't wait for me and don't trust in me, don't fall for me
Even when you know you're falling for me

when our lights meet, will you know me then
And will you want to know it?
It feels like I've known you for so long
When our lights meet, will you want me then
And will you ever know it?
It seems like you've know me for so long
When our hearts meet, will we make it then
Will we even notice that they are eclipsed

    General Commentthe lyric is 'when our lights meet, will you know me then?'

    Eclipses have to do with light passing over an object and blocking it from view, thus the title of the song.

    "When our hearts meet, will you even notice that they are Eclipsed?"


    It's not that 'lips' makes more sense, it simply appeals to the senses in a more obvious way.

    Besides, the vocalist know that 'lights' and 'lips' sound alike, he's playing with words that both fit in that particular phrase. Look at the lyrics to some of his other songs, like the chorus of "My Damsel" and the bridge portion of "Over" and you'll see what I mean.

    My InterpretationIn my opinion, this song is about finding your twin flame. Briefly, your twin flame is like a soulmate but much more significant. Your twin flame is the other half of your soul and, by definition, there is only one.

    Though there is debate regarding the phases of the twin flame relationship, there is some consensus that there is a distinct separation that occurs once or multiple times. The purpose of the break is for your soul to grow so you can rejoin your twin flame and live the rest of this life in perfect harmony and ultimately transcend reincarnation together. It's a really beautiful concept and one I'd encourage anyone to read more about.

    If you'll indulge my twin flame assumption, you'll notice the significance of the line, "when our lights meet." (flame = light)

    "I know I loved you then. I know I'd love you now. I know I'll you then. I know I loved you now!" and "We a speak about the future and our past lives." speaks to the encounter of your twin flame across incarnations and each of you knowing you've met before. "Seems like you've known me for so long" furthers this in that you've encountered your twin flame in previous lives and, because they are the other half of your soul, they know you as you know yourself.

    The challenge of the twin flame relationship is that it requires so much from both individuals to succeed. Specifically, in the area of destroying the ego. "Will you want to know it?"

    When twin flames come together, they are confronted with very uncomfortable truths about themselves. "We're both broken / crazy in our own little ways." Being confronted with this broken/crazy becomes so uncomfortable that even though twin flames fall in love so quickly they have to separate because it's too painful. Every moment with the other punishes the ego and brings all your "baggage" to your conscious mind. This is what leads to the separation.

    During this time, the goal is for your soul to grow so you can eventually rejoin your twin flame. However, "Don't wait for me. Don't trust in me. Don't fall for me." is a caution. Just because you want something so badly doesn't mean it will happen in this life. "You can't have everything you want when you want it." But, if it does, "I will be everything you want when you want it."

    The words change at the end. "When our HEARTS meet." I interpret this as the twin flames ultimately rejoin and become one. They're no longer separate lights but one heart that is eclipsed. In other words, one heart perfectly on top of the other and appearing as one.

    So beautiful.

    Or... I'm insane and projecting what I believe to be my present life circumstances onto the song. Wouldn't be the first time. Thank you for reading.

    General CommentThis song is one of those songs that sets up a mood that you have to experience for yourself before you can understand it.

    General CommentThis is one my favorite songs on the cd. Anyway, here goes my interpretation. To me it's saying that these two people like each other & it seems like they both have so much in common. However, the girl doesn't seem to be ready for a relationship.."..when our lights meet, will you know me then, and will you want to know it?" When it's talking about "lights" meeting, it's referring to the girl being ready for a relationship. Towards the end of the song where it says "but don't fall for me and don't trust in me, don't fall for me even when you don't know you're falling for me" I think thats from the girl's point of view. She doesn't seem like she trusts people at all. Bleh..thats all I've got. =/

    General CommentI love this song. It sounds like he's found his soulmate but he's trying to explain his feelings for her so that she understands. Either way, even if the song doesn't hold that meaning whatsoever, it's a great song.

    Song MeaningI believe this song is more about a relationship formed after another has ended for both parties, and they've turned to each other. (we're both broken in our own little ways, we're broken but fit together just right) I also don't feel re-incarnation has anything to do with this song. (I feel like I've known you for so long... and we talk about our future and our past lives) Those lines are a metaphor for past and possible future relationships that the two have been through, not alternate lives. (I know I loved you then, I know I'd love you now) That line is about how even in his "past lives/ relationships" he has had affection towards this person. The chorus is representation of how they are coming together, now that it's there time with each other, will the feelings be mutual and will things work. The lines (wait for me, trust for me, fall for me. Even when you don't know you're falling for me. Will you fall for it? If it should it'll come around again, but don't wait for me and don't trust in me, don't fall for me. Even when you know you're falling for me)are a symbolizing his want for this person, but also his insecurities in advancing with his feelings.

    General CommentThis is also one of my favorite songs on the cd. However, a believer in past lives and reincarnation, the song means to me two people who had previously been involved in past life, and perhaps clearing karma. "When our lights meet, will you know me then? And will you want to know it? Feels like I've known you for so long"...

    Whatever it means, it is an excellent song.

    General Commentthis song is absolutely amazing.


    'i feel like ive known you for so long,' is basically saying that once you find your true love you just know them instantly. beautiful.
