I am a million pieces of the sky
I found a way to be alone
I'm gonna wait until you want me
Until you finally decide to go home

Diamond, diamond are you all in the sky?
I can't believe all of these beautiful lights
As they surround me I will take a photograph of the sky
Bury me, bury me
Come on, bury me alone in the light

I am, I'm gonna run just like a lion
Another way to be alone
And I will wait until you find me
Until you finally decide to go home

(Don't go home! Don't go home!)

Diamond, diamond are you all in the sky?
I can't believe all of these beautiful lights
As they surround me I will take a photograph of the sky
Bury me, bury me
Come on, bury me alone in the light

I've never had a reason to take me away, yeah
I want it to be over
But I sit here and wait (x2)

I saw her smiling from the top of the world
I saw her sleeping on, amazing I know
If you lower, lower, lower me down
You lower me clearly, so come and lower me

Diamonds, diamonds are you all in the sky?
I can't believe all of these beautiful lights
As they surround me I will take a photograph of the sky
Bury me, bury me

Diamond, diamond are you all in the sky?
I can't believe all of these beautiful lights
As they surround me I will take a photograph of the sky
Bury me, bury me
Bury me, bury me (x2)

    Song MeaningI GOT IT!

    The song is about a boy who loved a girl that did not love him back.
    Since the girl did not love him back, he killed himself.
    "I am a million pieces of the sky
    I found a way to be alone"

    "Diamond, diamond are you all in the sky?
    I can't believe all of these beautiful lights
    As they surround me I will take a photograph of the sky
    Bury me, bury me
    Come on, bury me alone in the light"
    He is talking about the experience of death he is having.

    Now, he waits for her to miss and love him again, so that she will kill herself too and go off with him.
    "I'm gonna wait until you want me
    Until you finally decide to go home"
    "I want it to be over
    But I sit here and wait"

    Although, he really does not want her to kill herself...
    "(Don't go home! Don't go home!)"

    ...because she is living a beautiful life.
    "I saw her smiling from the top of the world
    I saw her sleeping on, amazing I know
    If you lower, lower, lower me down
    You lower me clearly, so come and lower me"

    General CommentWhen I first listened to the lyrics of this song I thought they were referring to faith/religion/dying.
    Diamond, diamond are you all in the sky? (diamond refers to the pearly gates/heaven)
    I can't believe all of these beautiful lights (I think it's lies, pertaing that religion could be a lie)
    As they surround me I will take a photograph of the sky (wants proof that there is a greater being/questioning faith)
    Bury me, bury me
    Come on, bury me alone in the light (talking about death)

    Now I'm with the majority here (I also now think it's lights) saying that it's about a loved one lost feeling alone but will remain strong (lion reference).
    I think the song carries over to Cemetery Weather's lyrics about a girl leaving him for a selfish guy and no matter what he will always and forever love and support her until his end.

    Song MeaningDiamond, diamond are you all in the sky?
    I can't believe all of these beautiful lights
    As they surround me I will take a photograph of the sky
    Bury me, bury me
    Come on, bury me alone in the light

    Personally I think this chorus is supposed to say lights,

    i think hes asking if simplistic beauty is only in the sky, states then how its unbelievable how the sky can be so organic and real, as the stars full of nothing but purity are one with him he takes a picture to capture the one single moment of himself one with perfectness, then says "bury me alone in the light" meaning the moment is so amazing it would be worth a lifetime and wouldn't matter if life ended then,
    because it was the purest moment.

    I think the whole song could possibly be about a girl he was in love with who went down the wrong path in life and threw everything away and it killed him, not literally, and it made him think about life in a different way. hes going to run and keep himself buisy, until she finds the right path and her way back to reality, and him.

    My InterpretationThis song is about one of the lead singers falling in love, and relates this to the zodiac. I did a little research, the lead singer happens to be a Leo which means his astrological sign is the Lion.

    "I am a million pieces in the sky" - The lead singer is Leo, the lion constellation.

    "I found a way to be alone" - He feels alone without companionship (possibly a relationship where the love of his life broke up with him)

    "Until you finally decide to come home" - this confirms what I stated above, the lead singer had his heart broke by the love of his dreams, and he is waiting for her to return.

    "Diamonds, diamonds, are you all in the sky?" - He relates to all the women around him as different stars and astrological constellations. Questioning if they are really as beautiful as they look (emphasizing that stars resemble diamonds)

    "I can't believe all of these beautiful lies" - He goes on to say that they are all not as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside

    "As they surround me I will take a photograph of the sky" - He's saying that he has met many of these women and made memories with them.

    "Bury me, bury me alone in the light" - He's saying that he is trying to move on, he's seeing other women as a method to cope and help himself forget about his true love, even though he is still in love with her. (note how it says ALONE in the light)

    "I am going to run this just like a lion" - he's saying that he is going to be a strong man and get through the heartbreak. He is praying for her sweet return, but in the meantime he uses empty relationships to cope with his heartbreak.

    " I sit here and wait, but I want this to be over" - He wants the pain to end, he wants his true love back but he fears she will never return and is giving up.

    "I saw her smiling on the top of the world, lower me down" - He's referring to his love as another constellation that sits closer to earth and further away from him. He wants to be close to her again, asking and begging to be lowered down closer.

    Anyway, this is my interpretation. It's definitely a love story, and the fact that the lead singer is a Leo is quite interesting. It's an astrological love story.

    General CommentI think the lyrics are actually;

    Diamond, diamond are you all in the sky?
    I can't believe all of these beautiful LIGHTS
    As they surround me I will take a photograph of the sky
    Bury me, bury me
    Bury me, bury me

    it makes so much more sense that way.
    this song is beautiful, to be honest the whole EP is beautiful and that's made me not care about the fact i've had to wait a long time to hear it.

    General CommentMrCastaway, I'm more inclined to think it's "lights" as well.

    Diamond, Diamond, are you all in the sky? (Stars perhaps)

    I can't believe all of these beautiful "LIGHTS". (Stars shine in the night sky as if they are tiny lights)

    As they surround me I will take a photograph of the sky. (Take a photograph of lies? I think not.)

    Come on, bury me alone in the light. (Once again with light, don't you think it would have been "Come on, bury me alone in the lies"?)

    A little sidenote, when Jonny is singing you can kind of hear a "t" sound where he says what you think is lies.

    All of that aside this is an amazing song and well worth the wait. This was just my 2 cents. <3
