A little girl upon the fireplace
Only air flying emotionless
Ring the bells for she could keep flying
This is me, completely me

End of day, we watched the sun go down
I can see you're like a firework
You want to save me, people will save me
But this is you, completely you

Now it's day, but I am dreaming
A man walks by, I want to be his wife
I'm only here sometimes
Under the tree of life
I'm only good sometimes
To keep my time to go home

Like a candle wasted from burning
I got shoes tired from walking
Calling out your name, my lips keep failing
They have now forgot to sing

Now it's day, but I am dreaming
A man walks by, I want to be his wife
I'm only here sometimes
Under the tree of life
I'm only good sometimes
To keep my time to go home
I'm only here sometimes
Under the tree of life
I'm only good sometimes
To keep my time to go home
I'm only good sometimes
Under the tree of life
I'm only here sometimes
To keep my time to go home

    Lyric CorrectionAll the lyrics are in the CD insert. Correct lyrics are:

    A little girl above the fireplace
    in the air, flying motionless.
    Ring the bell so she could keep flying.
    This is me, completely me.

    End of day we watch the sun go down.
    I can see you are like a firework.
    You want to save me?
    People will save me.
    This is you, completely you.

    Now it's day, but I am dreaming.
    A man walks by; I want to be his wife.
    I'm only here sometimes under the tree of life.
    I'm only good sometimes taking my time to go home.

    Like a candle wasted from burning,
    I got shoes tired from walking.
    Calling on your name,
    my lips keep failing.
    They have now forgotten to sing.

    Now it's day, but I am dreaming.
    A man walks by; I want to be his wife.
    I'm only here sometimes under the tree of life.
    I'm only good sometimes taking my time to go home.

    General CommentA little girl upon the fireplace
    Only air flying emotionless
    Ring the bells for she could keep flying
    This is me, completely me

    End of day, we watched the sun go down
    I can see you're like a firework
    You want to save me, people will save me
    But this is you, completely you

    Now it's day, but I am dreaming
    ??? I want to be his wife
    I'm only here sometimes
    Under the tree of life
    I'm only good sometimes
    To keep my time to go home

    Like a candle wasted from burning
    I got shoes tired from walking
    Calling out your name, my lips keep failing
    They have now forgot to sing

    Now it's day, but I am dreaming
    ??? I want to be his wife
    I'm only here sometimes
    Under the tree of life
    I'm only good sometimes
    To keep my time to go home
    I'm only here sometimes
    Under the tree of life
    I'm only good sometimes
    To keep my time to go home
    I'm only good sometimes
    Under the tree of life
    I'm only here sometimes
    To keep my time to go home

    My InterpretationI think she is describing the "fireplace" as the romantic relationships she has.
    "In the air, flying motionless" Maybe the partner she is with does all of the hard work of holding a relationship together. "Ring the bell so she could keep flying" as in keeping things on fire in the relationship and sounding the alarm; an exciting relationship. "This is me, completely me"; she is describing how she is in relationships. "End of day, we watch the sun go down"..maybe they have a sexual relationship and describes him "like a firework", at least for now. "You want to save me? People will save me"..clearly she is very flaky in relationships and is maybe at the age of where she should settle but constantly scouts for what she wants in love, from multiple people. "This is you, completely you" He's described in the relationship as the one trying hard to hold things together, offering to "save her" and probably working hard to keep her excited. "Now it's day, but I am dreaming. A man walks by, I want to be his wife" She's bored again and is thinking of other men. She's impulsive in relationships, and will even quickly say she wants to be married to a random man probably because she finds him sexually attractive. "I'm only here sometimes, under the tree of life" She's only impulsively commited sometimes, and probably truely thinks for a short part in the relationship about commitment. and the "tree of life" is a metaphore for how life is suppose to be; a husband, wife, kids, etc. "I'm only good sometimes, taking my time to go home" As she comes off of work or where ever she's at headed towards home, maybe she cheats. And other days she's good taking her time to go home, like maybe grocery shopping. "Like a candle wasted from burning, I got shoes tired from walking" She probably tried to commit to the "flamey" relationship and feels like she wasted her time burning the candle in the relationship, only to become bored again. "Calling on your name, my lips keep failing. They have now forgot to sing" Her conscious is probably giving her guilt, but she's just giving up.

    I noticed at the end of the song, the verses "I'm only HERE sometimes under the tree of life. I'm only GOOD sometimes taking my time to go home." the words I put in caps flip-flop. "I'm only GOOD sometimes under the tree of life." as in she's only commited to the relationship sometimes. "I'm only HERE sometimes, taking my time to go home." meaning her mind will drift off and day dream about other men as she's going home, not mentally "there" where she should be.

    General Commenti just wanted to comment on how beautiful this song is. honestly, i think the new album of theirs is my favorite - perhaps the others were more original, or groundbreaking, but "penny sparkle" is just so easy to listen to. the music flows into my ears like water, immediately catchy and enjoyable, yet interesting enough to hold up to repeated listening.

    and this song... one of my very favorites on this album. i'd say it's a perfect downtempo song, i love the way kazu's voice stretches out the syllables in the chorus, a trail of pixie dust flowing behind each word. great choice for the opening track imo

    My InterpretationAffected by a "made by-and for" girls article about "an evolved man" ? maybe.
    here we go:

    Vibration of the bell will help her enjoy the here and now, whom would do ?

    To help others, u gotta help ur self first, do observe you and the sun, moved?
    the rest is the first Law on alphabet.

    Focus & Life is like a tree, you grow from seed, fruit, etc. The cycle flows.

    It's a whine, little girls do that. It's natural, for the sake of the vibration.
