Lifehouse – Flight lyrics

I've lost my balance
I fell from the trapeze
This act isn't easy
I've been under water
This storm has been raging
These nights I'm not sleeping
My dreams are now strangers to me

And I need you now
There's too many miles on my bones
I can't carry the weight of the world
No, not on my own

Your eyes are like lightning
Your voice is like water
This place is a desert

I've been walking in circles
I'm screaming for answers
I might fall into pieces
Or maybe I'm finally breaking through

I need you now
There's too many miles on my bones
I can't carry the weight of the world
No, not on my own

No more running, no more hiding
No more hurting, no more crying
No more trouble, no more sighing
No more falling, no more striving
No more heartache, no more fighting
No more fears, only flying

    This song for me is about a lost soul who tries to search for answers about life. He/she was overwhelmed with his/her dreams, confusion and things this world is offering. Until this lost soul realized that there's only One thing that will make he/she complete...that is the love and peace of the One who created life. The One who will hold on to him/her even if he/she lost balance and unable to hold. The only One who rescued and saved us from the darkness of this world. The One who are willing and able to help us find our balance. The Name above all names. In Him no more running, no more hiding, no more hurting, no more crying, no more trouble, no more sighing, no more falling, no more striving, no more heartache, no more fighting, no more fears, and only Flying (freedom).

    The Christian theme of this lyric is quite strong. The person that is needed, as mentioned in the lyric could also refer to a woman he needs in his life, but somehow this interpretation doesn't fit in with all the lyrics. It's about someone who has had a lot of problems and questions in his life. He realizes he needs God and the voice of God becomes the water his life desperately needs. Now because of this he is free from all the past problems that were in his life.

    To me, this song is about a girl who has been infilling into the songwriter's dream. However, recently, his dreams has stopped being relevant in his life. He is lost as he has been believing in his darkness..His dream world. He doesn't know what to believe. Till he met the lady in the DINER place in the video. She is just a down to earth girl who doesn't know how to express herself. She speaks through sign language because she keeps herself to her dreams and does not reveal herself to the public.

    The Songwriter finally finds his soulmate and therefore,
    No more running, no more hiding, not more hurting, not more crying...

    This song really shoes the vulnerability of humans. We all need lovers around us to keep us strong. We would fall if not for the support from places and souls.
