Of all the things I know
I'm here on my own

    General CommentI also believe this is about dreams, the kind of dreams where you realize you're dreaming and you can manipulate everything with your mind and desire. I get the same cloudy astrally feeling everytime i listen to it, it takes me to the place where i'm all by myself and where reality laws don't work the same way. Without any kind of drugs :D.

    General Commenteasily one of the most mesmerizing, captivating and beautiful songs ive ever heard in my life. the instrumental version, Avalyn II is twice as long.

    i found this when searching exactly what AVALYN meant:

    everything2.com/…

    i think its about dreams, not the hope, but the actual place where dreams take place... and nightmares for that matter. the entire mood of the piece gives off an aura of being higher or levitating, as though you could close your eyes and open them on some astral plane surrounded by clouds in the sky.

    lovely song. though i like the instrumental more, it doesnt detract much from this version.

    General CommentBeautiful song. It gives out such an ambiance, it's really one of those songs I specially like to hear while waking up in the morning. It's relaxing, and also melancholic to a certain extent; a cry of hope and despair mixed with a celestial background. A masterpiece ^^

    General Commentin my top 5 favorite slowdive songs. it gives me the chills every time i listen to it. the lyrics are incredible, i agree that the song is about dreaming. specifically the mystery of the unconscious mind. the line "I'm here on my own" is haunting. there may be people in your dream but ultimately, they are just illusions, memories, and imaginations you have of them.

    General CommentIt's about death, about that moment you see your life in it's totality ("dreaming now of all the things I know"). See the Hollow Men by T.S. Elliot for the references.
