"Made Of Glass (Feat. Heather Nova)" as written by Andre Tanneberger and Heather Nova....
A change is coming I can sense it now
The weight is lifting and I'm sinking down
Birds are flying in the trees below
The tears are coming, I just let it go

If I could, I'd hold this moment
If I could, I'd make it last
Sometimes life just seems to shatter
Like we're made of glass

Breath on the water, dust in the sand
Make this moment last
Breath on the water, dust in the sand
We're all made of glass

I feel the wonder in my flesh and bones
I feel the hunger, will you take me home
Birds are flying in the trees below
The tears are coming, I just let it go

Sometimes life just seems to shatter
Like we're made of glass
If I could, I'd hold this moment
If I could, I'd make it last

Breath on the water, dust in the sand
Make this moment last
Breath on the water, dust in the sand
We're all made of glass

Made of glass

    My InterpretationDelicate and beautiful song! Heater Nova's voice gave the song a very strong emotional dimension!

    In my opinion, the song's talking about the Fragility of our human condition, and the Fragility of our world. Birds, trees, ourself: "we're all made of glass", one day, we'll die and will disappear.
    The "glass", fragile and precious, don't only shows our precariousness, it is also an echo to the "dust in the sand" (glass's made of silica's sand). This sentence reminds me of the famous "dust you are and to dust you will return". In one word: we're mortal, and so vulnerable.

    The "breath on the water" reminds me of our origins (first form of life in the water, or for the anti-evolution: the life in the mother's tummy). There's something very deep and somehow mystical in this sentence.

    I mentionned the Fragility of our World, because we can interpret this song as a warning for the global warming. A guy in YT has made a wonderful music video about global warmig with this song. ("A change is coming" ; "birds are flying in the trees below" ; "life seems to shatter" ; "I feel the wonder in my flesh and bones") "The weight is lifting and I'm siking down": the weight is maybe a metaphore of the responsability, the care about the planet. He's going away, so the Earth is sinking down.
    I don't really know. But I like this sentence and the opposition in it.

    I'm wondering, maybe it can be the story of a dying love relationship? So, what's your interpretation? (I'm so sorry for the English mistakes, I speak French in fact!)
