Down to the earth I fell
With dripping wings
Heavy things won't fly
And the sky might catch on fire
And burn the axis of the world
That's why
I prefer a sunless sky
To the glittering and stinging in my eyes

I feel so light
This is all I want to feel tonight
I feel so light
Tonight and the rest of my life
Tonight and the rest of my life

Gleaming in the dark sea
I'm as light as air
Floating there breathlessly
When the dream dissolves I open up my eyes
I realize that
Everything is shoreless sea
Weightlessness is passing over me

I feel so light
This is all I want to feel tonight
I feel so light
Tonight and the rest of my life
Tonight and the rest of my life

Everthing is waves and stars
The universe is resting in my arms

I feel so light
This is all I want to feel tonight
I feel so light
Tonight and the rest of my life

I feel so light
This is all I want to feel tonight
I feel so light
Tonight and the rest of my life
Tonight and the rest of my life

    My InterpretationAs I was writing my other interpretation this one came to mind. It reminded me of my experience with being bipolar. I'm type 2, but even so, the ecstasy that come with the high blinds you to the dangers around you and the path of destruction you leave behind. But then the devastating lows. And then the meds which prevent you from being in the light. And you are tempted to stop taking it because you might not be able to get the high, but darn it your whole body remembers it. But you are now aware of the damage you've caused and now level headed, decide that you could end up destroying everything just to feel it again. But after a long while, the meds start working, and you can see the change yourself. Everything is so different when medicated. There's no light to blind you and so you can appreciate and understand things now because you can actually see. It's like you are seeing the world for the first time. Little by little you adjust to this new world which you accept it for what it is. And you find a sense of belonging which makes you feel connected to others.
