"Beam Me Up" as written by Alecia B Moore and Billy Mann....
There's a whole other conversation going on
In a parallel universe
Where nothing breaks and nothing hurts
There's a waltz playing frozen in time
Blades of grass on tiny bare feet
I look at you and you're looking at me

Could you beam me up,
Give me a minute, I don't know what I'd say in it
Probably just stare, happy just to be there holding your face
Beam me up,
Let me be lighter, I'm tired of being a fighter,I think,
A minute's enough,
Just beam me up.

Some black birds soaring in the sky,
Barely a breath like our one last sight
Tell me that was you, saying goodbye,
There are times I feel the shivering cold,
It only happens when I'm on my own,
That's how you tell me, I'm not alone

Could you beam me up,
Give me a minute, I don't know what I'd say in it
I'd Probably just stare, happy just to be there, holding your face
Beam me up,
Let me be lighter, I'm tired of being a fighter,I think,
A minute's enough,
Just beam me up.

In my head, I see your baby blues
I hear your voice and I, I break in two and now there's
One of me, with you

So when I need you can I send you a sign
I'll burn a candle and turn off the lights
I'll pick a star and watch you shine

Just beam me up,
Give me a minute, I don't know what I'd say in it
Probably just stare, happy just to be there, holding your face
Beam me up,
Let me be lighter, I'm tired of being a fighter,I think,
A minute's enough,
Beam me up
Beam me up
Beam me up
Could you beam me up

    General CommentThis beautiful song is about a mother who lost her child. Being in first person gives to the song a new level of intimacy. This mother wants to reach her ​​son in this "parallel universe" (Heaven, I guess) and there she will be able to be with him. This woman is grief-stricken, but she is also humble. In fact, she asks to be with him just for a minute, even if she knows that in those sixty seconds she will not be able to formulate a thought, but only to enjoy the happiness of being there holding the tender face of her child. She's tired of fighting, she just wants to have her baby back, but she knows she can't. So, when she becomes aware of not being able to see him again, she tries to communicate with him through the little things, such as candles or shining stars. This song is heart-breaking and excruciating.

    General CommentI completely agree with the first comment, they've got it spot on. I had a miscarriage and listen to this song and can completely relate to it, it makes me think about my little girl. I love this song and the way it beautifully portrays how mothers like us feel

    MemoryThis song reminds me about my relatives that have passed away. It's a beautiful song and it just helps me remember and I'm always wishing I could see them for at least a minute.

    MemoryI think this song is about someone who's passed away, whether it's a child, lover, friend or family member. whenever I hear this it reminds me of my grandad he passed away almost 2 years ago and I regret not saying goodbye to him properly, him and my nan live about 300 miles away and he was rapidly deteriorating. my sister, brother in law, brother was driving up to him and there wasn't enough room in the car for my mum as my nephews were going, I gave up my place so my mum could see her dad, I dont regret that, but what I do regret is not finding another way to see him as he passed away 3 days later and I never said goodbye to him. I wish I could see him one last time to say sorry and say goodbye and tell him how much I love him, even if its only for a minute, even if I don't say anything I just want that one last chance

    Song MeaningPink actually had two miscarriages and that is most likely what the song is about. In an interview about this particular song, she talks about how it is about a child she lost and she teared up speaking about it.
