How could you be everything

We were cracking you up to be?

We're cracking ourselves up too.

We're cracking ourselves up to be you.

Had you in my hand,

Now, where'd you go, Aurora?

See you up ahead, but I don't know if I can go as far as you go.

Everything keeps happening,

And its happening to me.

I'm losing sight of its meaning.

You blew away the meaning.



I had it in my hand.

Now, where'd it go, Aurora?

I see you up ahead but I don't know if I can go as far as you go



And everyone keeps telling me that this is good.

I needed you to tell me it was good, too.



Had you in my hand,

Now, where'd you go, Aurora?

I see you up ahead but I don't know if I can go as far as you go.

    General CommentI think it's basically about looking up to someone who you thought was great and then when you try to be like them you start to realize that maybe you'll never be able to keep up with them and they probably see the difference and maybe aren't there for you when you need them.

    General CommentI think this song is about a friend who the narrator looked up to a great deal, but now doesn't really see why. The narrator is struggling with why she idolized this person and also with the fact that she has begun to try to be like this person, as well.

    General CommentYou were both using. Everyone said she would end up dead if she kept it up. Well, they were right.

    You loved her so fucking much.

    You move on, sorta. You do something worth congratulations and you get them, from lots of people, and you're grateful, you are...

    But you loved her so fucking much.

    She should be here.

    General Comment"Aurora" was a person who, in the singer's mind (and perhaps to many others) was a great, perfect, untouchable and wonderful person, someone that the singer admired and aspired to be like--and then, for whatever reason, something bad happened to Aurora. Perhaps she failed the singer in some way; perhaps she even died or had a mental breakdown. Whatever the case, the singer feels genuinely terrible for Aurora and doesn't know what she can do (or could have done) to have saved her...while at the same time, the singer is dealing with her own keen disappointment that someone she admired was fallible all along, that perhaps if she'd treated her as more of a person in need of help and less of a goal to aspire to, she might have been saved. Perhaps, too, she realizes that if Aurora, who seemed perfect, could fall, then she (the singer) can never be strong enough to handle her own difficulties. The singer mourns both her image of Aurora and herself.
