Can't close my eyes
They're wide awake
Every hair on my body
Has got a thing for this place
Oh, empty my heart
I've got to make room for this feeling
It's so much bigger than me

[Chorus:]
It couldn't be anymore beautiful
I can't take it in

Weightless in love...unraveling
For all that's to come
And all that's ever been
We're back to the board
With every shade under the sun
Let's make it a good one

[Chorus:]
It couldn't be anymore beautiful
It couldn't be anymore beautiful
I can't take it in

Laaaaaaaa ohhhhhhh
I can't take it in

Laaaaaaaaa ohhhhhh
I can't take it in
Woahhhhhhh

It couldn't be anymore beautiful
It couldn't be anymore beautiful
I can't take it in

More that I wonder
More than I ever needed
Woahhhhhh
More that I wonder

Oooooohhhhhh

    "Can't close my eyes
    They're wide awake
    Every hair on my body
    Has got a thing for this place"

    (Every part of her can sense the excitement in this land, it's a kind of invitation she's never felt before.)

    "Oh, empty my heart
    I've got to make room for this feeling
    It's so much bigger than me"

    (She no longer cares about what she was feeling before and doesn't care about whatever problems she had. She just wants more of that indescribable feeling, and she can tell whatever she thought mattered before really doesn't now. Whatever's in this place is so much more significant than everything she is. Intrigued is the word.)

    "It couldn't be anymore beautiful
    I can't take it in"

    (It's not just the visual beauty of Narnia, the feeling that just emanates from all of it is what is beautiful. She can't understand it, but she doesn't have to, that's the beauty of it. Just enjoy it!)

    "Weightless in love...unraveling
    For all that's to come
    And all that's ever been"

    (This new feeling is love, but a love she never thought she could experience. All burdens lifted from her shoulders, she is now stronger and ready to face whatever new experiences will come, but she also now appreciates the trials she's already been through; it's what makes her truly enjoy this new place.)

    "We're back to the board
    With every shade under the sun
    Let's make it a good one"

    (Back to the drawing board, a whole new start. Every day is a new day! There are new accomplishments to be achieved along with however many joys one can think of, if only you will see it. Look at the new horizon, what happened yesterday is past, look at all you can do now with your new day. Do with it what you can, it's the reason He gave it to you.)

    See? It just couldn't be anymore beautiful.
