"Serenade" as written by Kwan Hong Min and Y ....
Did you see the lights
As they fell all around you?
Did you hear the music ?
A serenade from the stars

Wake up, wake up
Wake up and look around you
We're lost in space and the time is our own

Whoa-oh
Whoa-oh
Ah-ah

Did you feel the wind
As it blew all around you?
Did you feel the love
That was in the air?

Wake up, wake up
Wake up and look around you
We're lost in space and the time is our own

Whoa-oh
Whoa-oh
Ah-ah

The sun comes up
And it shines all around you
You're lost in space and the earth is your own

Whoa-oh
Whoa-oh

    General CommentIn my humble opinion, this song has a rather deep message.
    "Did you hear the music
    Serenade from the stars"
    - On a clear night, he's laying under the starry night sky and feeling the music of the heavens cascading over him. the music, of course, can't be heard, but it's impossible to miss when you listen close enough.

    "Wake up, wake up
    Wake up and look around you
    We're lost in space
    And the time is our own"

    -A message urging others to wake up, see the beauty as it is. do what YOU want to do, not what they try and say you're supposed to. The time is OUR OWN.

    "Did you feel the wind
    As it blew all around you
    Did you feel the love
    That was in the air"
    -he notices the timeless and eternal nature of the wind, and the peaceful sense of love that envelops him as the wind is all around.

    "The sun comes up
    And it shines all around you
    You're lost in space
    And the earth is your own"

    we're lost in space, the sun is just another star, the vast magnitude of space is just mindblowing. The earth is our own...hmm, I don't think that means that we own the earth. I think it means the earth is a part of us, we come from the earth, we will go back to the earth, and we live by the earth's graciousness.
    harm that's done to the earth will ultimately come back to us. Support Organic Agriculture!

    Peaaaace.

    General CommentMy favorite SMB song. I believe it's about spending an evening with a girl. Seems that he's talking about everything stopping for them, nothing else matters, all that. I dunno tho...

    General CommentI think this song is about a person who was in a clique with some other people and he left for awhile to do his own thing. When he came back to the clique he wasn't the same, actually I think it means he acted like he was better than the group. The group then tries their best to let him know they are still friends but the person that is being serenaded isn't getting it. proof "the sun comes up, and it shines all around you, YOU'RE LOST IN SPACE, and the earth is your own." they know he is IN but he isn't acting it around them.

    My InterpretationAnd can't help but thinking that parts of the lyrics are about some sort of drug experience.

    "Did you see the lights
    As they fell all around you
    Did you hear the music
    Serenade from the stars

    Wake up, wake up
    Wake up and look around you
    We're lost in space
    And the time is our own"

    Seems as typical lyrics revolving around hallucinogenic experiences. Lost in space (well yeah) and the time is our own (loss of time orientation during hallucinogenic trips). I am not aware of Mr. Miller's habit of drug use during this time, but it seems to me that this entire album (at least the first five songs) is quite spacey and it wouldn't surprise me if some LSD or similar was part of his life.
