Today I learned to fly , I'm never coming down
On perfect wings I'll rise through the layers of the clouds

And from here I see the neon grids of cities
And six million people that keep their fires lit

I threw a party in my name
But the hours crawled by and no one came
So I bowed my head and I prayed for wings
To take me from this place... from you

I see myself inside you, you dream the dreams that I do,
You're still searching for these answers, they're not inside your wrist

And from here I see the neon grids of cities
And six million people that keep their fires lit

I threw a party in my name
But the hours crawled by and no one came
So I bowed my head and I prayed for wings
To take me from this place... from you

I close my eyes as the curtains draw,
I thought I heard your voice but I thought wrong,
'cause you're not there anymore,
No you're not there anymore

And so I lift my chin and the show goes on,
The sky is listening, the stars all sing along,
But you're not there anymore,
And I just can't care anymore.

    The girl in this song is hurting him, and he just wants to get away from the pain that shes causing him. Its mainly about how he feels that his love no longer cares for him and she hurts him emotionally by not being there. (the party was thrown for him, in order for her to come).
