Coming Back to Life Lyrics
While the days slipped by from my window watching
And where were you when I was hurt and I was helpless
Because the things you say and the things you do surround me
While you were hanging...

It's about getting a new life, not only in terms of love, it could be anything. Motivation, happiness, long term goal achievement, inner peace, mental stability anything at all. It is about a person finding himself/herself once again after going through a bundle of tough times!

PF is a psychedelic rock band . I think this song tells us about drugs and the feeling we get while coming out of it . If u have tried marijuana , u know it well . you're lost in your thoughts unaware about the time . he starts it with 'where were you when i was burned and broken' , this situation is when a person needs the drugs most(when he falls out of love). its obviously a dangerous (coz drugs are dangerous). and irresistible (once you've fallen into drugs, you cannot resist it) passtime. and now , he is killing all his trip and unconsciousness and coming back to his life. Therefore , i thnk this song refers to a phase high and fresh .

I think it's about finally meeting the person you are meant to spend your life with... And realizing you spent time and energy on another person that wasn't meant for you. "Where were you?". She was trying to make a marriage work, and not available... But the past is the past... They are finally together now :)

Its about a guy who's been in deep love with the girl and her thoughts surround him all the time. And now he's headed straight into the shining sun i.e has overcome his past by killing it and looking towards brighter prospects.

My interpretation is that it's about someone reflecting on a past loved one and saying you weren't there for me when I needed you. You were in love with someone else. Then the transition in the song is all about the individual moving on and allowing themselves to 'come back to life'. It's about someone overcoming their past and moving on towards a better future,but never really forgetting the one they loved.
