"Deciphering Me" as written by and Brooke Fraser....
Friend, it's getting late
We should be going
We've been sat here beneath these flickering neons for hours
while I am cracking their code, you are deciphering me
for i am a mystery, I am a locked room in a tall tower

Oh can you feel the gravity falling, calling us home?
Oh, did you see the stars colliding, shining just to show we belong?
We belong.

Your telescope eyes see everything clearly
My vision is blurred but i know what i heard echoing all around
while I am tuning you in, you are deciphering me
not such a mystery, not such a faint in a far away sound


It's love, it's love that holds us
We will be alright
It's truth, it's truth that shows us
If we'll walk in it's (his) light

[Repeat: x 2]
Oh can you feel the gravity falling, calling us home?
Oh, did you see the stars colliding, shining just to show we belong?
Oh can you feel the gravity falling, calling us home? (we belong)
Oh, did you see the stars colliding, shining goes to show we belong?

    General Commentif you watch the music video to "deciphering me", it seems like brooke fraser's playing off of sofia coppola's film "lost in translation", not only from the title (translation? deciphering?) but also the "neon" setting (aka. tokyo, japan, where LIT was shot), the clear umbrella brooke is holding (like the one scarlett/charlotte holds in the film), and the meaning of the song which responds so well to the plot of the movie.

    if you haven't seen the movie, the movie is basically about a man and a young woman meeting by chance in a bar in tokyo. from there, they form a friendship, sharing each others life crisis (how they feel so out of place, empty). they continue to spend time with one another, until it's time for them to go their own ways. brooke speaks from either one of the two's shoes - they have met by chance, have created this unforgettable bond, yet, when they part, feel so helpless that they might be losing something (friend) that they might never find again. but, to brooke's singing, it's like they're telling one another, it's okay. we're not drifters in this thing called life. "we belong."

    so perhaps a love song with a comforting messaging of unity through Him. that's just my take.

    General CommentI think this song is about a couple dissapearing in the Rapture(gravity falling, stars colliding, calling us home), and its really great. Such a beautiful song.
