Waking up in a world surrounded by flames
Where everything I liked is about to fade
How could you be the one if you're not the same
If in the hands of gods you have lost your way

How ever fast I dance to make the sun shine
I will never fall down
No matter what it takes, I'll try to save the ghost lights
How ever hard I pray to remake you mine
I will never feel down
No matter what it takes, I'll try to save the ghost lights

Waking up in the fog, the dust and the pain
And of the sunny days, no traces remain
How could you be the one if you sail away
Without you I can't stand the sound of the rain

How ever fast I dance to make the sun shine
I will never fall down
No matter what it takes, I'll try to save the ghost lights
How ever hard I pray to remake you mine
I will never feel down
No matter what it takes, I'll try to save the ghost lights

How ever fast I dance to make the sun shine
I will never fall down
No matter what it takes, I'll try to save the ghost lights
How ever hard I pray to remake you mine
I will never feel down
No matter what it takes, I'll try to save the ghost lights

    My InterpretationThe first verse of this song is about someone who woke up to realize their beautiful and wonderful world has deteriorated and everything their partner once was to them is long gone.

    The second verse is someone who will never stop trying to regain the love and happiness they once had, knowing the futility behind it.

    The third verse is about depression, realization that there is nothing left and one person leaving another. "Without you I can't stand the sound of the rain" is nodding to being afraid of being without their partner.

    Song MeaningThis is from the perspective of the woman, and she is lamenting that she had fallen in love with the soldier, who she now believes is not going to come back. She sees her world burn away metaphorically, the promise of excitement and adventure, and is now left with a dark and grim view on reality.
