They say i made the moon

Everything was in the dark

No memories at all

Just a tiny freezing wind in my back

As i was sitting there

Singing a song they had never heard before

Suddenly, a voice told me

Keep on singing little boy

And raise your arms in the big black sky

Raise your arms the highest you can

So the whole universe will glow

---------------------------

My first vision was a bush growing down the river

And i couldn't stop crying

Something was missing

I realized i was in love with a voice

I called it, again, and again

But all i heard was the echo in the light

    To me, the lyrics symbolize change within a person.
    "they say i made the moon," the change created the light within the being.
    "just a tiny freezing wind at my back," a person, thing, etc. , insinuated the change.
    The whole second half, to me, symbolizes letting go. Telling who we were, they are no longer dominate. It is a very difficult thing to realize how much you as a person has changed. Whether good or bad, change is hard.
    "my first vision was a bush growing down the river, and i couldn't stop crying. Something was missing. I realized i was in love with the voice. I called it, again, and again, but all i heard was the echo in the light. " the bush growing is the person the are now on the way to becoming. They are crying because they are letting go. The part that was missing is who they used to be. Being in love with the voice of who they are becoming, they keep moving. They are calling out, trying to hold on to it.

    This is beautiful.
