I am thinking it's a sign
That the freckles in our eyes are mirror images
And when we kiss they're perfectly aligned
And I have to speculate
That God himself did make
Us into corresponding shapes
Like puzzle pieces from the clay

And true, it may seem like a stretch
But it's thoughts like this that catch
My troubled head when you're away
When I am missing you to death
When you are out there on the road
For several weeks of shows
And when you scan the radio
I hope this song will guide you home

They will see us waving from such great heights,
"Come down now.", they'll say.
But everything looks perfect from far away,
"Come down now.", but we'll stay.

I tried my best to leave
This all on your machine
But the persistent beat it sounded thin
Upon listening
And that frankly will not fly
You will hear the shrillest highs
And lowest lows with the windows down
When this is guiding you home

They will see us waving from such great heights,
"Come down now.", they'll say.
But everything looks perfect from far away
"Come down now.", but we'll stay.

They will see us waving from such great
Heights,
"Come down now", they'll say
But everything looks perfect from far away
"Come down now", but we'll stay...

They will see us waving from such great heights,
"Come down now.", (come down now)

They will see us waving from such great heights,
"Come down now.", (come down now)

    I think he's in love and wants to share how he feels for his special person. "I am thinking it's a sign that the freckles in our eyes are mirror images and when we kiss they're perfectly aligned" is a good indicator of that. X3

    brikay- How did you come to the conclusion that the song writer is talking about god? Do you know that he's religious? And why would he sing about his "relationship with god" if he's saying "I have to speculate that God himself could make us into corresponding shapes like puzzle pieces from the clay"? It makes no sense. I'm sorry, but it doesn't.

    That relationships look perfect from a distant but in reality things aren't that great and the couple in this song are living in a utopian world of imperfections that is a falsity

    This is definitely a love song, and it totally taps into tahat amazing feeling when you first start to fall, where no matter what's going on or what's happening around you, you're just happy and high.

    I think this song means that someone was going through a hard time.Like their head was in the clouds or in this case "space" and they had support from their loved one's who were on supposedly on "earth".
    And that when they were ready to express their feelings to anyone they would realize that their loved ones had been waiting or again in this case "waving" waiting for them to come down now.
    I messed up on the first one.
