    General CommentTo me this song is about a loved one, whether it be family or a lover. When she says:

    "Blue sky to forever
    The green grass blows in the wind, dancing
    It would be a much better sight with you, with me"

    To me blue skies and the grass is a state of mind, maybe contentment or happiness, but sometimes this person isn't there with her emotionally. Maybe this person doesn't see the bright side of things with her.

    "If you hadn't met me, I'd be fine on my own, baby
    Never felt so lonely, then you came along"

    This line is bitter sweet, mainly because she was lonely, but she never realized it until this person came along and showed her what being with someone was about. The rest of the song is pretty self explanatory. This is like my new favorite song! I'm obsessed with it right now! LOL! Love it!

    My InterpretationIt's definitely about the Persona longing for the love that another person kept giving her, and how she needed it like water. Now that the person is gone, the Persona feels pain because the person isn't there anymore. Who wouldn't? I'd love to sing this to my close female friend. :) Plus, it reminds me of sunsets. :D

    General CommentShe was content, happy, once time... That was before she met someone and now she isn't happy without him. The world was right, it had beauty and she was content by herself and then she "stumbled" upon a man on accident and now she is restless. She realizes how much she needs him.

    I love the comparison that she is addicted to him and her body physically aches. Beautiful
