I always felt so far from you
Like something wasn't right
But tonight
I rest my head inside the crook of your arm
& I feel like a golden star

Exploding(tonight we are full)
Exploding(tonight we rejoice)
Exploding(you are my golden star)
Exploding

Though everything has come undone
The distance between us closes
And everything is suddenly

Exploding(tonight we are full)
Exploding(tonight we rejoice)
Exploding(you are my golden star)
Exploding

Tonight we are full up
Tonight we rejoice
Tonight we are full up
In spite we rejoice like stars

Exploding

    General CommentBest off her amazing debut.

    Her Cabin Session at Lowlands clip on Youtube is stunning.

    The meaning is fairly obvious in regards to how she is feeling when she is with her other half.

    General CommentI agree with maggyu, and the little scream she gives at around 2 minutes is a very nice touch.

    General CommentI get the feeling that the song is about making love, but if you look a little deeper, you can see that the song is about finding a love or feeling you didn't see before in plain sight. The opening verse reflects that by saying she didn't feel close to him, that something felt off being near him. Now she finds herself together in bed with him resting underneath his arm and she is lit up inside with a feeling she did not expect and can't contain it. Whatever relationship they had before is now moot and as they get closer the feelings she has for him become more powerful, their love, and exploding golden star. Tonight we are full up, in spite we rejoice could mean something keeps them apart and in the moments they are together they rejoice.
