"Cherokee" as written by and Chan Marshall....
Never knew love like this
The wind, moon, the earth, the sky
Sky so high
Never knew pain like this
Everything die, then die
Never knew love like this
The sun, the sea and I
Never knew pain, never knew shame
Now I know why

Bury me, marry me to the sky
Marry, marry me to the sky
Feels like time is on my time
Bury me upside down
Cherokee, kissing me
When I’m, I’m going down
Feels like time is on my time
Bury me upside down
Cherokee, kissing me
When I’m, I’m going down

Never knew love like this
The wind, moon, the earth, the sky
Sky so high
Never knew pain like this
Everything die, then die
Never knew love like this
The sun, the sea and I
Never knew pain, never knew shame
Now I know why

Bury me, marry me to the sky
Marry, marry me to the sky
Feels like time is on my time
Bury me upside down
Cherokee, kissing me
When I’m, I’m going down
Feels like time is on my time
Bury me upside down
Cherokee, kissing me
When I’m, I’m going down
Feels like time is on my time
Bury me upside down, down
Cherokee, kissing me
When I’m, I’m going down.

    General CommentI think the meaning of this song is beautiful. She probably has not been in a relationship before, and she is experiencing love, or a true love for the first time. She realizes that now that she is in love, as opposed to always hearing about it, everything is beautiful and reminds her of her love, the sky, the earth, the wind, the moon. She also hasn't felt this pain, why is her wanting and thinking everything to die. Throughout the song she contiues to tell of her love, and being in love, if she dies she wants to die in love.
