"Ceilings" as written by Taylor David Rice, Ryan Clinton Hahn, Matthew James Frazier and Kelcey Paul Ayer....
Haven't stopped your smoking yet
So I'll share your cigarette
Just to feel it in my fingers

Walk around 'til 3 am
Tell me what I know again
To keep myself from second guessing

All my silver dreams bring me to you

Hold the summer in your hands
'Til the summer turns to sand
We were staring at our ceilings
Thinking of what we'd give to have one more day of sun,
One day of sun

Silver dreams bring me to you
Silver dreams bring me to you
Silver dreams bring me to you

    My InterpretationI connected with this song as it kind of describes a lot of what I have felt.

    "I haven't stopped your smoking yet
    So I'll share your cigarette
    Just to feel it in my fingers"
    - I took this as being in a relationship and seeing the direction its going in, as a negative one. I haven't stopped your smoking yet could refer to how a person thought they could change their partner but now all they can do is hold on to what they used to have. "just to feel it in my fingers", could mean just to have that person you love close to you.

    "Walk around 'til 3am
    Tell me what I know again
    To keep myself from second guessing"
    - I saw this as a plea for reassurance, he is asking her to tell him that it wont end and that she wont leave him.

    All my silver dreams bring me to you
    - This is the idea of thinking about the other person and finding your thoughts with them when you are not together.
    Hold the summer in your hands
    'Til the summer turns to sand
    We were staring at our ceilings
    Thinking of what we'd give to have one more day of sun
    One day of sun

    - This is wanting to remain or go back to the time when they were happy together and wanting that back. Whilst you're with someone you don't think of the way its going to end. You don't know what you've had until it is gone.

    Great song

    General CommentAs for a song meaning, (bear in mind I'm not the best at this stuff) I think it's about a girl/significant other that the singer's clinging onto anyway he can.

    General CommentI was watching a podcast and Taylor introduced this song saying something like the song is about staring up at your ceiling when you're laying in bed at night.
