We came a long, long way through the wind and rain
I nearly sank my heart in the empty glass
Spent my time alone, but you’re at the phone
And when I fall apart, I’ll swim with the sharks

You’ll always be right there
And I will always love you
You changed my vision when you said to me

You, you are my shining star
Don’t lose your glow
Don’t fade away into the darkness
(x2)

In the box of doom, in a hotel room
You’re across the sea, but you’re near to me
You know you gave me hope, now I stay afloat
I used to sleep to scream and now I sleep to dream of you

You’ll always be right there
And I will always love you
You changed my vision when you said to me

You, you are my shining star
Don’t lose your glow
Don’t fade away into the darkness
(x4)

    My InterpretationI believe this song is about depression and how her new boyfriend has shown her how to be happy again.

    "We came a long long way, through the wind and rain." Here Charli is setting the scene that it took a while and it was difficult for her and her boyfriends relationship to begin, due to her depression.
    "When I fall apart, I'll swim with the sharks," there is no return for her if she were to become depressed again.

    "You changed my vision when, you said to me... you are my shining star, don't fade away into the darkness." Here Charli is telling us what her boyfriend said to her and that he doesn't want her to become depressed again.

    "You're across the sea, but you're near to me." Even when they're apart she loves him just as much as when they're together.

    "You know you gave me hope, now I stay afloat." How her boyfriend has changed her for the better.
    "I used to sleep to scream, and now I sleep to dream of you." Depression meant she would go to sleep feeling awful but now she has a boyfriend she looks forward to going to sleep.

    Charli is an amazing song writer. I love this song it has a real eerie feel, perhaps to reflect the eeriness of the song's meaning.
