    General CommentI think its about the order of life...

    "The sun is shining" could be a parallel to how when the sun comes up, its the beginning of a new day, or new life; when you're born.

    "Birds are singing" is how you are no longer part of a concept of being born into the world and are now actually part of life, or when you first learn to talk, hence "singing".

    "Flowers are growing" is obviously the stage where you grow up and blossom into an individual that no longer needs the constant nurturing that a baby is supplied.

    "Clouds are looming" is the only part I'm not too sure of..... Possibly it could be symbolic of how one's hair turns white and gray just like clouds when they get older? Maybe the looming clouds could be the thoughts that you think as you become aged and you remember your life when you were younger.... the things you never did and the things you did that you shouldn't have. Like that, I think.

    "...and I am flying" is definitely showing a person who has died and turned into an angel; the afterlife, or possibly how the person lingers in peoples' minds that they touched while a living person? Either way, the person is gone, forever to float (or in this case, fly) among memories and the memory of them to be passed down in conversation and stories told unto the next generation and so forth....

    Birth, Individuality, Growth, Aging, Death. For such a small amount of lyrics, they're such genius! Amazing song, it makes me cry :)
