I might be going on an Alice Phoebe Lou binge here (a lovely independent musician I have recently discovered), so bear with me. I also think I have recently discovered that I really enjoy sharing songs and interpreting the feelings they bring me through writing.. so perhaps this post may be nice for somebody out there.
The theme of the song (at least the vibe for me) begs questions such as: are you free? Is your heart in it?
Life is a precious gift for being on this Earth. And our hearts play a role as emotional directors throughout our lives. If we ignore our hearts, or our emotional intelligence, life tends to feel like a prison (does it not?). If we look around us–can we admit that the world is living in a sort of prison of conformity, restraint, or hate? Have we moved from the extreme of our imaginative, kind-hearted, innocent childlike essences into rational, materialistic Earth-mongerers (okay, exaggaration there, I know)? Clearly, there is good and light in the world, but we cannot deny the rise of war, destruction, division, greed and poverty that might make you all question… are we truly free?
