Look back, look high tell me what do you see here
Trees, sky, sunshine is it what you imagined?
And picture this, so far away, can you see it?
And I'm not so sure what we need
Won't you tell me?

Hello, Universe
Tell me your secrets

Don't make the mistakes that they made for a lifetime
Just don't make the mistakes that they did

And we'll aim for the heavens now-
Encourage yourself to find the reason
To understand why they're hiding
Teach yourself to be the difference
And teach yourself it's a good thing
Let's not forget why were here now will we
Am I the one? Are you troubled?
We were made for a reason, our back up
In case the sun doesn't make it, surprise us

Hello, Universe
Tell me your secrets

Don't make the mistakes that they made for a lifetime
Just don't make the mistakes that they made

The wars will fight it out
The kids will play forever
Friends move on without you
It keeps spinning
You take things for granted
You'll sleep through today
It's alright to go without you
It's okay, have your day

And we'll aim for the heavens this time
It's something that can last a lifetime
And we'll aim for the heavens this time

Hello, Universe
Tell me your secrets

Don't make the mistakes that they made for a lifetime
Just don't make the mistakes that they did

Redesign the past, go back

Hello, Universe
Tell me your secrets

    My OpinionLove this song. Just heard it today, I absolutely love it. I wrote down the lyrics on the back of a poster to help find homes for 2 cats I know. I'm showing it to my teacher tomorrow, because we have an assignment, to recite a poem. I'm just going to recite the lyrics to this song. I won't be surprised if I start giggling afterwards, when reciting the poem.

    This song has lots of meanings...

    In the first paragraph, it seems like he's asking the person if he/she is happy where they are, in their position, and how it feels like to be there.

    The chorus, is practically self explanatory. He is telling everyone to share their 'secrets' or their regrets. He wants them to tell him their secrets so he can say "Don't make the mistakes that they made for a lifetime
    Just don't make the mistakes that they did" to them.

    The second verse, he is encouraging them to 'aim for the heavens', meaning, to set your goals to high standards. He is saying that they should let themselves go. That they make a difference in the world. He is saying that they can do whatever they wanted. And that we were made for a reason, that we are here today for a reason.

    The third verse... He is saying that things will always go wrong. No matter how much you try for it to not, it will. He is saying though that it's okay to have your alone time, and that the world won't bother you when you need it.

    Then he says to them, that they will try again, but they will set higher goals.


    "Redesign the past, go back" he means, they can change the past if they accept it.




    This is from my view.
