Lost in a daydream of blue
I feel so free
And then it's like I fall from the sky
Everything that I see is you
And you should know that
I'm thinking about what you said
When you held my hand

Oh, I adore you

Now we are older and things disappeared somehow
And I was thinking that maybe
We'd stand better chance if we met today
I find myself talking to sharks
On my way to an island, and still

I adore you

I was young, I was old
And we were in, we were out
I wanna see, I wanna see it all
I wanna die, I wanna die
Sweetheart, sweetheart
I thought I saw
I thought I saw a light
I see it now, I see it now

    My Interpretationoh this is clearly about suicide. his love dies, and hes going to meet her by jumping off a building.

    lost in a daydream of blue and i feel so free
    --falling, sky is blue
    And then it's like I fall from the sky
    --very straightforward
    Everything that I see is you
    --thinking about her
    And you should know that
    I'm thinking about what you said
    When you held my hand
    --remembering old times
    Oh, I adore you
    Now we are older and things disappeared somehow
    --i.e. shes dead
    And I was thinking that maybe
    We'd stand better chance if we met today
    --in heaven or whatever
    I find myself talking to sharks
    On my way to an island, and still
    --don't quite get this one,
    I adore you

    I was young, I was old
    --life flashing before eyes
    And we were in, we were out
    I wanna see, I wanna see it all
    --more nonsensical death stuff
    I wanna die, I wanna die
    --very straightforward
    Sweetheart, sweetheart
    I thought I saw
    I thought I saw a light
    --and again straightforward
    I see it now, I see it now
    --and hes with her

    General CommentI didn't think so at first, but now thinking over certain things like what em22feb said, it does seem sort of suicidal--certain details just fit.

    Also, I read that lead singer Erik Mattiasson tried to commit suicide. I'm not sure when he made the attempt, as in before or after he wrote this song, but either way it makes sense for him to write a song about suicide. If it's after, then it could be about what he was thinking when he tried, and if it was before then it could be about what he was thinking it would be like, or like a justification.

    Whatever the song means, it's really beautiful with interesting creepy undertones. I love Melpo Mene.

    General CommentI think this is one of the cutest songs I've ever heard. Seriously. It's not much to analyze: he had this girl, things got boring, he thinks things would work out better if they were together now.

    General CommentI love this song
    I heard it on the car commercial and loved it
    To me its about him remembering a girl he used to love
    and he's not with her anymore but just thinking about her makes him happy

    General Commentthis song makes me cry because it reminds me about this boy i used to know...

    its about being in love of course, a love that feels like a daydream. but the singer and his love get separated for no particular reason, and he thinks (hopes) that he and his love could reunite in the future.

    what i love about this song is that i think it sounds like the singer acknowledges that their reunion is also just a daydream, a fantasy. but he loves her and can barely stand the idea he won't find her again...contemplating suicide.

    General Commenti heard this song a few weeks ago and i love it. it makes me cry everytime.

    this song to me is about a love he had a long time ago and it didn't work out, but he still loves her just the same. he wants to see if it can work out, but she doesn't know where she is because they've taken two different paths in life and have lost touch.

    thinking about her gives him hope.

    General CommentIt made me really sad to find that this song could possibly be talking about Suicide because when I first heard it, it made me really happy because I assumed it was a song about someone who loves someone a lot and absolutely adores them.

    Of course, I guess I should have listened a little closer. I still don't know the meaning but I hope it's what I originally thought it was!
