"Living in the Sky with Diamonds" as written by Daryl Hall, John Oates, Bruno Mars, Philip Lawrence, Sara Allen, Oliver Goldstein, Michael Caren and Gabriel Edward Saporta....
Her heart, is racing,
And the room is heating up
And her eyes, are glazing,
But she still can't get enough

The beat is pumping, now she's blowing up (blowing up)
The last thing on her mind is growing up (growing up)
She'll kiss the sky before she's giving up (giving up)
And oh, oh here she comes

She's dancing with the stars,
Living in the sky with diamonds
She's dancing with the stars,
And oh, how the lights are shining
She has the key in her hand,
Reflection in the mirror's her best friend
She's dancing with the stars, the stars,
Keep dancing

You can't, change her,
Cause you know you think it's hot
And that girl, loves danger,
But she don't know when to stop

The beat is pumping, now she's blowing up (blowing up)
The last thing on her mind is growing up (growing up)
She'll kiss the sky before she's giving up (giving up)
And oh, oh here she comes

She's dancing with the stars,
Living in the sky with diamonds
She's dancing with the stars,
And oh, how the lights are shining
She has the key in her hand,
Reflection in the mirror's her best friend
She's dancing with the stars, the stars,
Keep dancing

Gonna get you somehow,
You're gonna talk of the town
Losing control now,
And I won't come back down
And I hope you come down

She's dancing with the stars,
Living in the sky with diamonds
She's dancing with the stars,
And oh, how the lights are shining
She has the key in her hand,
Reflection in the mirror's her best friend
She's dancing with the stars, the stars,
Keep dancing

She's dancing with the stars,
Living in the sky with diamonds
She's dancing with the stars,
And oh, how the lights are shining
She has the key in her hand,
Reflection in the mirror's her best friend
She's dancing with the stars, the stars,
Keep dancing

    General CommentThe first time I saw the song title, I cringed 'cos it seemed like it was a play on "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds" and it came off rather stupidly. It makes sense now that I've heard it.

    General Commentjust giving examples of why it is indeed about ecstasy:

    "She's dancing with the stars
    Living in the sky with diamonds
    She's dancing with the stars
    And, oh, how the lights are shining
    She holds the key in her hand
    The reflection in the mirror's her best friend
    Oh, she's dancing with the stars, the stars"

    ... if anyone has ever done it, they know how AMAZING lights are when you're rolling. also, you love EVERYTHING when you're on it, so if she's looking in the mirror, she's her best friend at that moment. "keep dancing" is just obvious.

    "Her heart is racing
    And the room is heating up
    And her eyes are glazing
    But she still can't get enough"

    all of the above are symptoms, especially if you're dancing a lot.

    General Commentalso, i think it's kind of cool that they called it "livng in the sky with diamonds"

    i think ecstasy is going to be our generation's acid.

    if that makes sense.
