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

    I think it, s about dreaming, or rather a specific dream. "my heart is high as the waves above me. Don't need to understand. Too lost to lose. " in the dream is something beautiful, something the makes her happy. Maybe it's her sister, I don't know. She knows it isn't real, but it's ok, she doesn't need to understand it. She already so lost, it doesn't matter what happen's, she has nothing to lose anymore. "don't fight my tears, cuz they feel so good" even pain is better than nothing, it's pretty simple.
    "and i, i will remember how to fly. Unlock the heavens in my mind. Follow my love back through the same secret door" I feel like she's saying she woke up, but it's ok, she'll get back to that dream. She'll remember how to fly. Ulnocking that secret place in her mind that is so wonderful. She going to take the same path there as her loved one did.
    "look past the end. It's a dream, as it's always been. All life lives on if we've ever loved it" looking past the end of the dream, she knows she'll see that person again because she loved them.
    The more you think about it, the more since it makes that she's talking about her sister.

    I know almost all of her songs are for her sister, and this one is too, but it kind of reminds me of the ocean, like wandering into the ocean and never coming back, going missing at sea, because of the music and the words--the harp, for one, and the words: waves high above you, like they were about to crash down and destroy your boat; too lost to lose; look past the end, it's a dream.
