Reflecting Light Lyrics

Now that I've worn out
I've worn out the world
I'm on my knees in fascination
Looking through the night
And the moon's never seen me before
But I'm reflecting light

I rode the pain down
Got off and looked up
Looked into your eyes
The lost open windows
All around
My dark heart lit up the skies

Now that I've worn out
I've worn out the world
I'm on my knees in fascination
Looking through the night
And the moon's never seen me before
But I'm reflecting light Give up the ground
Under your feet
Hold on to nothing for good
Turn and run at the mean dogs
Chasing you
Stand-alone and misunderstood

Now that I've worn out
I've worn out the world
I'm on my knees in fascination
Looking through the night
And the moon's never seen me before
But I'm reflecting light

Thoughts & Meanings

This song has continued to be one of my favourites since I first heard it. Though sometimes the lyrics seem melancholy and sad at times, I've always felt the general impression of the song is redemtion of the singer. This song describes the remeption of a cynical and tired person, through someone they love, whether romantic or otherwise. The last verse, I feel, describes how the singer once was "alone and misunderstood." And I'm confident that this verse, though last, is actually in the past in comparison to the first. This is because the first verse contains a lot of action in the present, like the singer looking into their redeemer's eyes or actively letting go of their pain. Whereas the last is more descriptive of things we assume the singer did, like saying that they gave up on ever being happy when they sing "hold on to nothing for good." I essentially believe this song is about the bittersweet homecoming of a road-weary cynic, who feels they have "worn-out" the goodness in the world. And the song is them marvelling the "night" which is the love of their redeemer, and feeling their heart "light up the skies" because of it.
