It's been so long
And tin cans and string for years
Is all that we've known
Could it be you're really here?

'Cause my eyes are open, and everything still moves in slow-motion
Breathless and blue, and behind your eyes, the sea
Oceans of light envelop me

But things can't be as they seem
I'm so far from home
This must be another dream, but my eyes are open

    My InterpretationI think it might be about the moment where you finally fall in love with someone after being alone for so long. It seems like a dream, but then you realize you're actually awake and it's actually happening - you've finally found that person you feel at home with.
