Turn out the lights
Feed the fire till my soul breathes free
My heart is high as the waves above me
Don't need to understand
Too lost to lose
Don't fight my tears, cuz they feel so good

And I, I will remember how to fly
Unlock the heavens in my mind
Follow my love back through the same secret door

Look past the end
It's a dream, as it's always been
All life lives on if we've ever loved it

And I, I will remember how to fly
Unlock the heavens in my mind
Follow my love back through the same secret door

    This song might be about not being able to see were the actual truth for anything is but only in a dream, is that truth said so you keep wanting to go back into the same dream over & over. And soon you find out who you are but you just dont know how to unleash your talent.

    I honestly feel as if this song is just about the artistic process. Getting in the mood to write and releasing herself through that.

    There is also a sense of resentment. The "follow my love back through the same secret door" seems like a cop out.

    To be more blunt, i think its about weed. The secret door is excaping reality.

    She is clearly speaking of a deep pain that is making her heart be torn but she doesn't fight it because it feels so good in leading her to god she says she will remember to fly because we are from heaven and we used to fly and open the heavens in my mind self explainitory i'll follow my love back through the same secret door either our lord or another angel is she refering to godbless you amy my heart is torn as well but just a little farther now soon we will be ascending into heaven and those who read this that are like us you all will as well

    You can persevere through anything if you try and when you look back on it all, it is just a dream. You are you and you are alive.
