Springtime is over
Don't head for home
Creep up the ladder
And steal over stone

No time to forget this
World's in your eyes
Sway in the cloud blur
And light up the sky

Cast off the color
And tune in to black
The moon touches your shoulder
And brings the day back

    General CommentThe first verse somehow seems like it would have something to do with college, and the spring semester ending. Whoever this is doesn't want to head back home to his or her parents: "Springtime is over / Don't head for home". Instead, this person wants to do more adventurous things during summer, and explore the world. I dunno, this explanation sounds quite silly even to myself, but from the first verse, I kinda get this feeling. I think the whole song is about being free and experiencing things while you can.
