Points of light
Shootin' through the tree-stained vines
It draws me in
To catch a fistful of wind and chime

But all day long I heal for the honey
Waitin' for the one I love
The noons are hot with heartache aplenty
I'm lovesick and undone

Poised, unrefined
Delicate and loosely loosely lined
Oh I am a dreamer
But I'll deny it til' the day I die

'Cause all day long I heal for the honey
Waitin' for the one I love
The noons are hot with heartache aplenty
I'm lovesick and undone

All day long I heal for the honey
Waitin' for the one I love
The noons are hot with heartache aplenty
I'm lovesick and undone

Yes I'm lovesick and undone
Yes I'm lovesick and undone
I'm undone, I'm undone, I'm undone
Say it loud
Say it loud
Oh out loud
Oh out loud

    My InterpretationHOW COME NO ONE HAS COMMENTED ON THIS AMAZING SONG!???!!! This song is so beautiful. It is pretty obvious the song has to do with loneliness, longing, and waiting on someone. I feel like the first verse has alot to do with life contemplation, staring out at natural things, just contemplating life, which then turns to the speaker of this song to contemplation of their own life. They wait everyday for someone to come into their life, someone who will love them and someone they can love back and spend time on. they try to do all they can to "fix" themselves up for this person, hoping it will attract them to come, whether it be by working out all their personal problems so there won't be any strains on the relationship, or maybe just by simply dressing up nice and trying to be a person. an attractive person. not necessarily trying to be someone else, but maybe actually trying to be more of yourself. trying to fit your own mold but you haven't quite grown enough to fit it. but yet it's like you feel like you can't. atleast not yet and so you are left sad again. because you tried so hard. you put so much effort in for what seems like nothing. you're "poised" and "unrefined" and a "dreamer" that denies it because you don't want people to know how lonely you actually are and that you really feel inadequate because that "someone" hasn't come into your life and theirs probably already has so you just pretend. you make them think that you are just trying to be "independent", not needing love and affection from that "someone" that doesn't exist in your life, when really you hope and dream every single moment of everyday that he/she will come into your life and change everything. because your afternoons are empty and you'd really like someone to share the weather with. you so much want to not be lonely anymore. you want to be in love, but you're not. you're not in love. and no one's there to be in love with you either. you might even feel like a waste of time and space. you are someone that hasn't been in love with anyone. you are someone who no one has even been in love with ever. you're undone.

    My Opinion>>HOW COME NO ONE HAS COMMENTED ON THIS AMAZING SONG!???!!!<<

    Good question, but I don't know if it ever got radio play or not, so maybe that would have something to do with it. It's funny, I know nothing about "new" (newish to me, I was so surprised to find it has existed for about nine years!) songs any more unless they are on a TV show. I know, I should be embarrassed, but it is what it is.
    Heal For the Honey was used, along with a lot of other stuff I am so grateful to have now, on the first season of the show "Pretty Little Liars", and I was watching that from the beginning 2 days ago and just HAD to find this song! (Thank you Spotify, if I have to sell all of my shoes to keep you, I shall. And I am very fond of my shoes) - I had trouble at first, it was really hard to hear the lyrics, and I just pulled out every one I could hear, threw it on Google a few times and finally found it :)
    I am still really curious about the title - as a Tori Amos fan from before... well, anyone in my state probably knew who she was, I am used to beautiful, musically evocative songs with lyrics that don't really make a ton of sense, but I'm still curious! I like the first reviewer's thoughts about the song because it did what it was supposed to do - it drew out what you *feel* about the song. You started by trying to literally interpret the words, to explain why she is "poised and unrefined"... but as someone who listens and reads carefully what people say, I can tell that it became personal and your (sorry to change tense there) words started to just tumble out, no editing your thoughts or trying to "get it right"! I LOVE that. That is what a great song does - it starts the listener on a path, then there is often a merge, maybe, where it stops being about the lyrics and is so much more about how it makes you feel.

    This song doesn't have a lot of lyrics, it isn't really telling us a long story. I think this:

    "Points of light
    Shootin' through the tree-stained vines
    It draws me in
    To catch a fistful of wind and chime

    But all day long I heal for the honey
    Waitin' for the one I love
    The noons are hot with heartache aplenty
    I'm lovesick and undone"

    shows that this person recognizes beauty, knows she should pay attention to the light, which does draw her in for a bit... then the word BUT, which tells us something is crowding out other thoughts, and she is very aware of that and makes no apologies.

    I also love that this starts out tentatively, in a "can I trust you with this?" to the listener. So many songs these days just start out being practically yelled at us from note one, that no story is told, no emotion has time to grow... but as we listen, we hear this emotion grow and become so large, it gets louder and is just Truth. "I'm undone, I'm undone, I'm undone!" - and that is just what is happening. This song is real and truthful and I feel like this is a person who is trying to stay calm or polite or whatever, but eventually the emotion wins and we get the truth. Lovesick and undone. I like that word choice, we don't use it in "American English" much, so it packs more of a punch for me, for lack of far better phrase. I think we can all imagine what being undone means.
    I don't know exactly what she is waiting for, maybe she doesn't - that isn't the overarching theme, for me at least. When you are lovesick, there is no medicine. You're just undone, and she has opened her heart to us and let it spill out.

    Very real, and very beautiful. The musicians here (I hate to talk about the... "man behind the screen", but I love the instrumentation in this song, so hopefully it adds to, rather than detracts, from the mood) are incredible - the music and lyrics combine to give us what we get. I have heard the word "haunting" for Brooke as a singer, but I don't find this "haunting". It's not dead. We have to be alive to be lovesick. Very evocative.
