Lyric sites are so dead wrong on this, I need help.



SAMPLE: "As the singer grows older, his conception goes a little deeper, because he lives life and he understands who he's trying to say a little more."

[Bobby Womack]
The earth is but a dayglo reflection
A turn that will bring you only light
I'm forming to myself, but I'm not going
Waiting for the day to bring me light

[LDR]
If heaven thinks that everything is everything
The only thing I ever dreamed is you and me
Cause I'd break down, I'd take you down
And I'd love it every step of the way

SAMPLE: "As the singer grows older, his conception goes a little deeper, because he lives life and he understands who he's trying to say a little more. If the singer tries to find out what's happening in life, it gives him a better insight on telling the story of the song he's trying to sing."

[LDR]
Watching from a distant constellation
Eyes that can see the world in changing hues
Visions still unfolding, sweet [???]
Time reveals that love's the only truth

If heaven thinks that everything is everything
The only thing I ever dreamed is you and me
Cause I'd break down, I'd take you down
And I'd love it every step of the way

Every site says the same thing, so I guess not. For instance, those sites claim the lyric is "everything is everything is everything"...

Lana's lyrics are great though

[Bobby Womack]
The earth is but a dayglo reflection
like turn that with rain you only light
I'm falling to myself but I'm not going
waiting for the day to bring me light

[Lana Del Rey]
Is everything, is that everything, is everything
the only thing I ever dreamed is you and me
'cause I've layed down I take you down
and I love it every step of your way

[Lana Del Rey]
Watching from a distant constellation
eyes I can see the world unchanging hills
there's still unfalling [????]
time with you is that love is the only truth

[Lana Del Rey]
Is everything, is that everything, is everything
the only thing I ever dreamed is you and me
'cause I've layed down I take you down
and I love it every step of your way

On the live version Damon Albarn says

Watching from a distant constellation
Eyes that can see the world in changing hues
Visions still unfolding, sweet [imagi???]
Time reveals that love's the only truth


Imaginating?

I am in love with this song.

They lyrics don't really make sense to me though.

Could it be about some kind of lost, hopeless love?

It would fit with Lana's ideal of honoring broken romance.

I think Bobby Womack's voice is beautiful. It's so aged and full of wisdom.

Not you guys shading Bobby Womack :eartha2:

I would be here for Honeymoon to sound like a mixture of this song and Come When You Call Me.
