Feeling the past moving in
Letting a new day begin
Hold to the time that you know
You don't have to move on to let go

Add to the memory you keep
Remember when you fall asleep
Hold to the love that you know
You don't have to give up to let go

Remember turning on the the night
And moving through the morning light
Remember how it was with you
Remember how you pulled me through
I remember
I remember
I remember
I remember
I remember
I remember
I remember
I remember

Feeling the past moving in
Letting a new day begin
Hold to the time that you know
You don't have to move on to let go add to the memory you keep

Remember when you fall asleep
Hold to the love that you know
You don't have to give up to let go remember how it was with you
Remember how you pulled me through I remember feeling the past moving in

Letting a new day begin
Hold to the time that you know
You don't have to move on to let go add to the memory you keep

Remember when you fall asleep
Hold to the love that you know
You don't have to give up to let go remember turning on the the night

And moving through the morning light
Remember how it was with you
Remember how you pulled me through
I remember
I remember
I remember
I remember
I remember
I remember
I remember
I remember

    My InterpretationI know it's straightforward, but some lyrics can be a bit hard to pinpoint the meaning with words so here's what I think..

    "Feeling the past moving in
    letting a new day begin"

    This is about keeping on going towards the (hopefully) brighter future, even though a dark past is creeping up on you. You ignore the past and keep going forward.

    "Hold to the time that you know
    you don't have to move on to let go"

    Perhaps it means holding onto happy memories of a happier time. Perhaps a relationship full of nice memories. You don't have to move on from the happy memories in order to let go of the pain of the breakup (or w/e).

    "Add to the memory you keep
    remember when you fall asleep"

    Keep the happy memories, and make new memories as well to add to your "happy collection."

    "hold to the love that you know
    you don't have to give up to let go"

    Just because of one failed relationship, you don't have to give up on love completely in order to let go of that one bad experience.

    "Remember turning on the night
    and moving through the morning light"

    I'm not sure about this part. Maybe.. The night represents sadness, and the morning light represents happiness. Ignoring the sadness and moving on into being happy again. Similar to the first part of the song.

    "remember how it was with you
    remember how you pulled me through"

    The person is speaking to themselves reminding them of how someone pulled them through a bad experience. Maybe a friend or love interest helped them after they were heartbroken and reminded them that good guys/girls still exist.

    "I remember."
    This small phrase packs the meaning of every other verse into a small, powerful phrase. It's not just saying "I remember" as in "I remember when such and such happened.." It signifies the person remembering to stay hopeful, remember to let go and move into the light (happiness) and to not allow one crap situation ruin their outlook on all other things.

    General CommentLove this song! Saw deadmau5 play it twice this year, and it rocked. About a relationship that is over but both or one of them still "remembers" how strong their love was when they were together. this song gives me the chills

    Song MeaningOK the reason I came here was to see if anyone had any thoughts on the only metaphorical-sounding part of the lyrics: "Remeber turning on the night // and moving through the morning light" - thoughts anyone?

    At first I just thought it was a kind of catchy flip-round of the phrases 'turning on the light' and 'moving through the night' that didn't really have any concrete meaning but just sounded cool, well anyway that was on first hearing the song a while ago - HOWEVER, I kid you not; over the past two weeks I listened to this song pretty much every day before I went to bed - while I was incarcerated in a motherfucking psychiatric ward - and yeah now after that experience I sort of feel that there's a lot more to the song than just being "catchy" ;-)

    Peace

    General CommentBleh... Not to spoil the good jeers guys, but, even if the song may be straightforward in meaning, aren't the comments for deciphering the meaning of the song and such? We are on SongMEANINGS[dot]net, no?...

    DarkOneLuck was the only one that didn't include a rather pointless post, aside from ArbPotatoes' explanation to the noobs about Kaskade not being the vocalist.

    Idk, just my two cents... Flame me all you want. :P
