"Blue Leaves" as written by and Soley/stefansdottir Stefansdottir....
I sailed in the forest with you
My head was covered with blue
Leaves from the party we left
We threw all our drinks in the bag
We put it on the table
We ate them

After the night I woke up
My head was still on the
Table and my eye sailed away in the boat we came on

We jumped into the water
We ate it
We got my eye from the ocean
And we put it on x2:

I sailed from the forest with you
The leaves in the boat were yellow, green and blue
And we threw them in the air, it was rain
Leaving the sky only for us
We put them on the table
We ate them

    My InterpretationI think this song is about date rape.

    "I sailed in the forest with you
    The water was covered with blue
    Leaves from the party we left
    We put all our drinks in the bag
    And put it on the table
    We ate them"

    In this first part, she talks about leaving a party with someone and she says they are drinking togethor. I think the way she says "I sailed in the forest with you" suggests that she doesn't really know this person, that they are a stranger. And I think that the fact that she says she sailed into a forest (usually forests are far removed from the water, right?) and that the water was blue suggests that the place is strange to her as well because the idea of a forest in the middle of water is strange.

    "After the night I woke up
    My head was still on the
    Table and my eye sailed away in the boat we came on"

    Here she talks about waking up in this same strange place and she looks around, but all she can remember is leaving the party with this stranger

    "We jumped into the water
    We ate it
    We got my eye from the ocean
    And we put it on:"

    Now I think she is trying to remember the events of the previous evening. I think you can interpret her saying, "we jumped into the water" to mean that they drank a lot because she follows it with, "we ate it". That is my idea, anyway.

    "I sailed from the forest with you
    The leaves in the boat were yellow, green and blue
    And we threw them in the air, it was rain
    Leaving the sky only for us
    We put them on the table
    We ate them "

    Finally, she starts from the beginning like she is going over the details of what she knows happened while this stranger takes her home (at least I think the stranger is taking her home because it says "I sailed FROM the forest..."). In the end, though, she comes to the same conclusion as she did when she first woke up...she cannot remember anything after they left the party, arrived at this place, and started drinking. Then the music continues but she trails off, suggesting that she knows there is more to the story, but her memory is blank.

    That is my interpretation of both the content and the form.
