"Travelling light" as written by Markus Schulz, Anita Kelsey and Mads Arp....
Your speaking a different language to me
Your world is far away,
I can never live there
I'm looking into your eyes, trying to find, a common place to start
Don't fire that gun yet

I was turning the page before you could read
The signs were all around
But missin' them's easier...

I admit that I'm the stranger here
The story of our past, the one that never got started
Never got started...
So I'm traveling light
(Oh yeah...)
I'm traveling light
We never got started...
So I'm traveling light
(Traveling light)

Your speaking a different language to me
Your world is far away,
I can never live there
I'm looking into your eyes, trying to find, a common place to start
Don't fire that gun yet
We never got started (never got started)
So I'm traveling light
(Oh yeah...)
I'm traveling light, We never got started....
So I'm traveling light...
Never got started...
I'm traveling light

    My InterpretationI think it is about a girl who is getting to know a guy:

    "Your speaking a different language to me
    Your world is far away,
    I can never live there
    I'm looking into your eyes, trying to find, a common place to start
    Don't fire that gun yet"

    She's saying "I don't see that we have anything in common, but I'm trying to find something, keep this conversation going and don't reject me"

    "I was trurning the page before you could read
    The signs were all around
    But missin' them's easier... "

    The first phrase doesn't make a lot of sense with my interpretation, but the 2nd and 3rd seems to talk about she having all the signs of attraction from the guy (or signs of lack of attraction), but sometimes we are not able to see them.

    "I admit that I'm the stranger here
    The story of our past, the one that never got started
    Never got started...
    So I'm travelling light "

    She's admitting they don't know each other yet, she's a stranger to him. So she's going through life, or her relationship with him lightheartedly, since they still don't share a relationship.

    Hope you liked it, I hope you send feedback.

    My InterpretationIt's about a person (the singer) in a relationship (most generically speaking -- acquaintance, friendship) who has read too much in the actions of the other, thinking more is there -- feelings reciprocated. The other person has been kind, friendly, perhaps even a bit flirty. However, despite these actions, the other person doesn't have feelings for the singer.

    Well, the singer takes the next step in sharing their feelings and is rebuffed or rejected. The singer is dejected and perplexed, not understanding a "No" answer.

    You're speaking a different language to me
    Your world is far away,
    I can never live there
    I'm looking into your eyes, trying to find, a common place to start

    The singer desires that the other person doesn't say "No" completely and give them a chance.

    Don't fire that gun yet

    But, upon reflection, the singer realizes that other signs where there indicating that the other person did have feelings for them.

    I was turning the page before you could read
    The signs were all around
    But missin' them's easier...

    The singer continues contemplation, realizing that the past he/she imagined was never really there.

    I admit that I'm the stranger here
    The story of our past, the one that never got started
    Never got started...

    And, so now, moving forward, the singer is being careful with their emotions -- keeping them light rather than deep.

    So I'm traveling light
    (Oh yeah...)
    I'm traveling light
