I find shelter in this way
Under cover, hide away
Can you hear when I say
I have never felt this way

Maybe I had said something that was wrong
Can I make it better with the lights turned on
Maybe I had said something that was wrong
Can I make it better with the lights turned on

Could I be, was I there
It felt so crystal in the air
I still want to drown whenever you leave
Please teach me gently how to breathe

And I'll cross oceans like never before So you can feel the way I feel it
Too
And I'll send images back at you
So you can see the way I feel it too

Maybe I had said something that was wrong
Can I make it better with the lights turned on
Maybe I had said something that was wrong
Can I make it better with the lights turned on

Maybe I had said something that was wrong
Can I make it better with the lights turned on
Maybe I had said something that was wrong
Can I make it better with the lights turned on

Maybe I had said something that was wrong

    I think it might be about a girl who has had a fight with someone very close to her (probably her best friend) and she is saying that she will do anything for them to fix that little piece that just won't go back together. Like she really wanted every thing to be like how it used to be. It sounds like the person in which she had a fight with is very close to her heart and always will be. Amazing song ❥ this meaning was dedicated to leyla (mishigan)

    I think she finds shelter doing something she regrets, I think she's talking about sex. She thinks that's the only way for men to like her and want her. But she doesn't want that. She's trying to apologize but doesn't want to disrespect herself anymore. "Can I make it better with the lights turned on" I think she's asking if she can just work it out and apologize with out having to sleep with him. She's tired of being taking disadvantage of because they think they can now.

    I think if you're looking for the meaning of the song is simple.
    Taking cover in emotions, v1, maybe they had a fight about it so if i did something wrong can we talk about it and not fix it in bed, chorus, i remember you very clearly and i love you deeply, v2, then i'll do anything for you, v3. And then chorus again.
    Beautiful song :)
