As I lie in this moment
Frozen since that day
I've been drowning in questions
Over and over again

Your legacy lives on
And you are by our side
Right here with me
The time has come for you to fly
Now that you're free
You will always live in me

I know you saw their faces
And how they lined up for you
We know that you were looking down on us
As the sky filled with reds

Your legacy goes on
And you are by my side
Right here with me
The time has come for you to fly
Now that you're free
You will always live in me

What I would give just to be with you
This world feels cold and grey since you went away
I see your smiles and love in your sister's eyes
One day we will be one, when we reunite

I know you're by my side
Right here with me
The time has come for you to fly
Now that you're free
You will always live in me

Here by my side
I'll see you again my friend
You will be always by our side

    This is one of the more emotional songs on the album. It sounds personal to me. Like about someone that was close to Maria. But yeah I think the production of the CD coulda done better here, cuz during the chorus, her voice overpowers. But I can still look past that, cuz it's a badass album.

    i like the overpowering voice effect. gives it a KABAM sense. like Evanescence's "My Immortal" the early recordings had Amy's voice mucho overwhelming and then she literally banged on the piano.... then they editted and ruined it. oh. well

    this song is amazing wonderful album artwork- its the whole reason i picked this album off the shelf at the local Walmart

    Looking at the very last page of "The Dream"s booklet, the album is dedicated to Nick and Steven Odio, so I would assume they were close friends and this song was made about one or both of them.

    Guys? Why hasn't anyone commented the raw, intense emotion present in this song, especially in the lyrics? Maria creates masterpiece after masterpiece in terms of beautiful lyrics. These are so heartfelt and this song really helped me through the death of my close friend.

    In my opinion, this song is about greiving the death of a loved one and the confusing feelings we experience when this happens. I absolutely love this song. It's positive and sad at the same time; that's what I love about In This Moment - they can make someone smile and cry while still listening to the same song.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
