You've made it crystal clear
You are a chandelier
I am the floor beneath you
So low, I cannot reach you
You are the constellations
You are the stars above
Light years away from being
Something that I could touch

And I, I, I've
Been bli-i-inded by
Your glow
'Cause it shines like oh, oh, oh

You're sent from heaven to save me
From my wicked ways
And all the loneliest nights
Turn into reasons to stay
And I can ho-o-ope
That soon you'll kno-o-ow
Why I leave all the lights on
'Cause it's dark when you're gone

You are the morning light
Cast over open eyes
Into the heart that found you,
Now it won't beat without you
And every headlight leaves
A trail of memories
A flashback in the night
Like halos in your eyes
And I, I, I
Can't fi-i-ind
My way, alone
'Cause you shine like oh, oh, oh

You're sent from heaven to save me from my wicked ways
And all the loneliest nights turn into reasons to stay
And I can ho-o-ope
That soon you'll kno-o-ow
Why I leave all the lights on

I have lost sight
Of the compass in my mind
Oh, I have lost my way
Tangled up inside
Now all my dreams
Are hanging from a wire
And it's crystal clear
You are the chandelier

You're sent from heaven to save me
From my wicked ways
And all the loneliest nights
Turn into reasons to stay
And I can ho-o-ope
That soon you'll kno-o-ow
Why I leave all the lights on
'Cause it's dark when you're gone

You're sent from heaven to save me
From my wicked ways
And all the loneliest nights
Turn into reasons to stay
And I can ho-o-ope
That soon you'll know, oh, oh
Why I leave all the lights on
'Cause it's dark when you're gone

    I'm not sure on this one I think he is saying that he loves her and missing her but the video suggest otherwise as does the use of the discriptive, chandelier, I think maybe she had him under her thumb and he has only just realised it.

    But the dark when your gone reference... still says feelings... hmm this post is prob too objective and unconclusive to have a point lol.

    Great song, I think it can be taken several ways.
