Hotspur – Chandelier lyrics

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 personally think this song is about resentment as much as love. She's the light, the chandelier and she lights his way when it's all darkness around him. But the way it is put kind of make me think he despise the way she makes him feel because she "made it crystal clear" she is the ceiling and sky up above and he is just the floor "so low [he] cannot reach [her]"... She clearly makes him feel insecure and (sorry to say but) 'shitty' about himself. He got blinded by love (the chandelier which represents the girl) and now she's gone he sees the darkness: that is reality, and perhaps her ugly dark true colors.
    Anyway I love this song. It radiates sarcasm from miles away, clearly she thinks too highly of herself whereas he wonders what he's doing with her, she shone too bright and blinded him and.. well maybe the "I leave the lights on when you're gone because it's dark, blah blah blah, you're my light, and I am a clumsy retarded without you" is just irony.
    Then again, personal opinion!

    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.
