This is a world of dreams and reverie.
Where I felt the stars explode around me
A grass blade flashed with a gleam
As it slashed open a moonbeam
And I stared back breathlessly
As mountains of fruit tumbled out
I barely had the chance to shout
O strawberry avalanche, crash over me.

Staying awake that night
Was rather hard
Deep in a sleeping bag in your backyard.
When we woke up buried alive,
Beneath a fruity landslide we both laughed hysterically.
It could have been just another dream,
But I swear I heard you scream
O strawberry avalanche, crash over me

Hope is a citrus constellation in the galaxy,
Scratched at the back Of both my eyelids
That I've been dying to see
If you were a beautiful sound
In the echoes all around
Then I'd be your harmony
Then we'd sing along with the crowds
Beneath the candy coated clouds
O strawberry avalanche, please crash over me.

This is a world of dreams and reverie
Where I felt the stars explode around me

    This is a song that focuses heavily on the powers of the human imagination. The author chose fruits and other natural occurrences and stuffed the song with imagery to show the audience exactly how realistic his sensations were. The most important lines of the song are probably "This is a world of dreams
    And reverie." and "It could have been just another dream,
    But I swear I heard you scream; " all of which bring up the philosophical debate between epistemological externalists and internalists: What is real and what is not? As these lines suggest, the author believes that all knowledge of reality lies within our minds.

    OMG! This song has absolutely nothing to do with murder, trust me! Nor is it about a woman having her period! Grow up!

    It's about remembering what it was like when we were kids, about having fun in the snow, back in the days when you were just carefree and everything was magical! That world of make believe and pretend where nothing is ever quite what it seems!

    As for the screaming part, have you ever had such a good time or been so excited that you literally "SCREAMED" with delight?

    Kids always scream, especially when they're having fun!!

    I know I did when I was young (heck, sometimes I still do!)!

    Peace

    Nesszors is exactly right! I would have said the exact same thing except i think adam young does that to all of his songs. Press thumbs up on both of ours if you agree

    it is meant to make you feel good (like hot air balloon) in truth the song is talking about closing you eyes and seeing all the colors "Hope is a citrus constellation in the galaxy,
    Scratched on the back Of both my eyelids"
