Young the Giant - "Firelight"
www.youtube.com
I've been SUPER excited all week because tonight, on Halloween, Young the Giant is performing at my campus. I remember when I was in class last week and my friend texted me about it, I almost screamed, haha. I personally love their nostalgic, mellow song "Firelight". I'm a sucker for minimalist and emotional songs such as this one. It's from their album "Mind Over Matter" To me this song feels like numbness. Like when you've gone through something tragic or sad in life...the passing of a loved one, the end of a relationship that was a big part of who you are, maybe even betrayal. Not sure, exactly what the story is behind this song, but I love the imagery of falling down in a parachute...lost in a dream. I feel many people cope with hard events in their life this way, by "floating away" and feeling like they have lost hope. What do you all think? I'd love to hear other people's interpretations. Also, Happy Halloween :) Lyrics: I've been waiting many hours By the silent moon In the wild, the jungle flower Your toxic perfume Tell my friends I'm gone, it's true I've past on now To the eyes of a dark, lost blue I don't believe you I'm in a parachute Falling in deep Sleep Out of control Can you feel it? Is this the end of the road? Falling in deep Lost in a dream And the rains begin to shower Cover me in blue In the wild the watchman's tower Your perfect monsoon Tell my friends I'm gone, it's true Tell my son I've gone away with you I don't believe you I'm in a parachute Falling in deep Sleep Out of control Can you feel it? Is this the end of the road? Trick up your sleeve Breathe I don't believe Is this the end of the sea Staring at me? I could be free In a dream Lay down by the fire light For all I know it's the last time Tell my son Oh
