Sara Bareilles – Eden lyrics

Let me paint a picture for you then I’ll have to teach you to see it
Illustrate the remnants of the life I used to live here in Eden
Rolled a lucky pair of dice, ended up paradise

Landed on a snake’s eyes, took a bite and ended up bleeding

You know if I could change anything, I think I would start with the name
The truth is all those angels started acting the same

And I know there’s no going back now cause
Life in Eden
Life in Eden changed

No way to make the pain play fair

It doesn’t disappear just because you say it isn’t there
So when they ask why’d she go you can say cause
Life in Eden

Life in Eden changed

Life in Eden changed

Walking in the garden was a serpent-shaped heart and he told me

That what is broken cannot show, and less than beautiful is worse than unholy
Idolized my innocence, stole it from me in the end

Now I’m wide awakened and still paying for the poison they sold me

You know if I could change anything, I think I would start with the name
The truth is all those angels started acting the same

And I know there’s no going back now cause

Life in Eden
Life in Eden changed

No way to make the pain play fair

It doesn’t disappear just because you say it isn’t there
So when they ask why’d she go you can say cause
Life in Eden

Life in Eden changed

Life in Eden changed

There was a time when I was taking all bets

That this place was even better than as good as it gets
And now looking back from the outside in

I think I was choking on the air in Eden

You know if I could change anything, I think I would start with the name
The truth is all those angels started acting the same

And I know there’s no going back now cause

Life in Eden
Life in Eden changed

No way to make the pain play fair
It doesn’t disappear just because you say it isn’t there
So when they ask why’d she go you can say cause
Life in Eden
Life in Eden changed

Life in Eden changed

    i think that this song is not actually about religion, but using it as a metaphor for breaking away from the corrupt people in the industry in Hollywood, as Los Angeles is often called "The City of Angels". When she says "Rolled the lucky pair of dice, ended up in paradise" she means she "rolled the dice" by becoming a singer and "ended up in paradise" when she moved to Los Angeles to become a big time singer. When she says "You know if I could change anything, I think I would start with the name, The truth is all those angels started acting the same
" I think she is referring to wanting to change the nickname of LA, "The city of angels" and when she says "All the angels started acting the same." I think she is talking about the people in the industry just being corrupt, bad people. And when she says "Life in Eden changed" i think she means that her thoughts on Hollywood changed. I think this interpretation of the song is reasonable because Sara Barellies hasn't released any new music since the album this song appears on, The Blessed Unrest. I believe she moved from LA and is living her life as her own now.
