"Night Sky" as written by Iain Andrew Cook, Martin Clifford Doherty and Lauren Eve Mayberry....
I will carry you and give you life
I will cover you and show you the way
It's a sequence that you never learned
It's a lesson I will never forget

I can hear you in the overtones
Just an echo of the promise we made
Change the future, we can travel time
Or make us blind so we can never look back

We can never look back

I'm the night-sky
I'm the fire in your eyes
And I want you
Now and for all time
I'm the cold heart
I'm the secret that you hide
I'll be listening until you decide

I communicate in simple strings (take your time)
I'm the only one who gave you the truth (speak to me)
Once you leave me you were really gone (far and near)
Give me something to remember you by (always be)
All that's here is what you left behind (majesty)
Slowly moving in the back of my mind (can't forget)
Take a moment to remember me (and our ways)
Make me blind so I don't ever look back

Only in your name
I will ne'er be free

I'm the night-sky
I'm the fire in your eyes
And I want you
Now and for all time
I'm the cold heart
I'm the secret that you hide
I'll be listening until you decide

I'm the night-sky
I'm the fire in your eyes
And I want you
Now and for all time
I'm the cold heart
I'm the secret that you hide
I'll be listening until you decide

    General CommentI totally thought she was saying, "I'm a nice guy". It's comforting to know that I misheard that lyric.

    My InterpretationIt sounds like a conversation with "God" to me.

    God- I will carry you and give you life
    I will cover you and show you the way
    It's a sequence that you never learned
    It's a lesson I will never forget

    Her - I can hear you in the overtones
    Just an echo of the promise we made
    Change the future, we can travel time
    Or make us blind so we can never look back
    We can never look back

    God - I'm the night-sky
    I'm the fire in your eyes
    And I want you
    Now and for all time
    I'm the cold heart
    I'm the secret that you hide
    I'll be listening until you decide

    Her - I communicate in simple strings
    God - (take your time)
    God - I'm the only one who gave you the truth
    Her - (speak to me)
    Her - Once you leave me you were really gone
    God? - (far and near)
    Her? - Give me something to remember you by
    God? - (always be)
    Her - All that's here is what you left behind
    God? - (majesty)
    Her - Slowly moving in the back of my mind (can't forget)
    Her? - Take a moment to remember me (and our ways)
    Her? -Make me blind so I don't ever look back
    Her - Only in your name
    Her - I will ne'er be free

    General CommentIt's the imprint of the persons early experiences/childhood haunting them. It's their true identity calling, but distorted in some way. It calls to the adult to come collect what was left behind and repair it. The middle chorus is an argument (alternating lines) between the child left behind and the adult saying they never forgot. Neither perspective is resolved. One must move forward, the other looks back, both has benefits and neither has the answer. The final verses describe the appearance of the individual without resolution to this arrangement.
