I think CiL was the first song that was able to switch my mood and that is something very comforting.
And that is really special... <3
About the lyrics: It's always like it is with Poets of the Fall. For everyone it means something different depending on the situation in life and on personal experience.
I noticed that the beginning of CiL is in past tense... But the refrain and in the end it's in present tense...
I think, this is the reason why I am sad and happy at the same time while listening to it and for sure it is the music and the voice that give me these feelings.
Thank God no mainstream but a beautiful piece of art.
YEP! Agreed with the first one; the two ones following make much sense, indeed... ; couldn't be more agreed with your last sentence, my friend!
"...and even if in that particular moment we happen to be alone we should remember there always is/was that someone for us in the world and if we go on maybe we'll meet again..."
A really wonderful perspective. To know someone who cares is always around. I love the idea!
@serinde, I second @Porthos13, definitely!
Funny, until this thread I have always avaoided interpretations. Mainly because many of the songs have a very personal meaning for me and I don't like to take that apart. To me, disecting lyrics can kill a song so I usually stay away from it. Also, as many others have said here, I find it difficult to put my feelings into words. (...) I must say this has been very intersting, maybe I should do this more often.
(Am I the only one who really wants to hear the Poets cover Queen at least once. *cough* Bohemian hapsody * cough* - yeah, I know this belongs in the "covers..." thread.)
I second every single word.
And about last one: (No, you're not... I have a my mind's pretty delighting audiovisual interpretation of second part of Bohemian Rhapsody, performed by the Guys... )
The good fairy looked at Marko's crib and gave him the exceptional voice that we love so much
Awww, that's exactly so...
...And after all this quoting I forgot what I wanted to say...
... Oh yes! I concentrated my listening to CiL mostly on music, today: NOPE! No way to feel sadness/melancholy, not even a glimpse of... Just feeling like being in your love's arms and nothing&no one can break that magic... just you and your love...
WAKE UP, CLAUDIA!
