"Eye of the Needle" as written by and Sia Furler Christopher Kenneth Braide....
Take me down
I'm feeling now
And if I move on
I admit you're gone
I ain't ready
I'll hold steady
I'll hold you in my arms

You're locked inside my heart
Your melody's an art
I won't let the terror in, I'm stealing time
Through the eye of the needle

Step and repeat
Tears fall to the beat
Smile through pain
Feel the acid rain
I ain't ready
I'll hold steady
I'll hold you in my arms, in my arms, in my arms

You're locked inside my heart
Your melody's an art
I won't let the terror in, I'm stealing time
Through the eye of the needle

My bags heavy
Been filled by me
They weigh me down
Carry them round
It's all mine all mine
I am blinded by the eye of the needle

You're locked inside my heart
Your melody's an art
I won't let the terror in, I'm stealing time
Through the eye of the needle

You're locked inside my heart
Your melody's an art
I won't let the terror in, I'm stealing time
Through the eye of the needle

    My InterpretationYes the song is about the pain of separation at the end of a relationship. But more specifically I feel the song is about that painful transitional period.

    Fact: Sia's boyfriend Dan passed away in London in a traffic accident when they were on their way to meet each other for a vacation. For the next 10 years she became dependent on alcohol and drugs.

    I believe that this song is about her transitional period from getting clean and moving on with her current fiancée. Not just letting go of Dan , but also of the person she turned into thereafter. Moving on from depending on the numbness that the alcohol and drugs provided.

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a relationship that has just ended, or is ending. She says she's not ready to move on, so she doesn't wanna get over him. She still loves him no matter what. He always has that place in her heart. I dunno. Just what I got from the lyrics.

    General CommentShe had someone so wonderful that they are on a pedestal. They were wonderful and she cares so deeply for him. She cares so much that she is having trouble letting go, or even believing that it's over. She is looking through the tiny hole in the needle as if it is the tiny window to a small beacon of hope that she can keep him. She is beginning to feel the pain but wants to hold onto him, she's stealing time by ignoring the problem and trying to keep out the pain instead of dealing with it.

    Then finally it all hits her at once. She realizes that her baggage is too heavy to keep carrying, so all these strong emotions are coming out at once. She knows that it's her fault and that it's holding her back from other people.
