The 18th Floor Balcony Lyrics

I close my eyes and I smile

Knowing that everything is alright

To the core

So close that door

Is this happening?

My breath is on your hair

I'm unaware

That you opened the blinds and let the city in

God, you held my hand

And we...

    I'm probably not even close.. but this is what I gather from this song...

    "I close my eyes and I smile
    Knowing that everything is alright
    To the core
    So close that door
    Is this happening?"

    --he basically falls in love with this girl.. and has never felt that way before...and can't believe it..

    My breath is on your hair
    I'm unaware
    That you opened the blinds and let the city in
    God, you held my hand
    And we stand
    Just taking in everything.

    --He's never been so happy "open the blinds and let the city it" just basically means that she let and wanted everyone to know that they were in love.

    And I knew it from the start
    So my arms are open wide
    Your head is on my stomach
    And we're trying so hard not to fall asleep
    Here we are
    On this 18th floor balcony.
    We're both flying away.

    --AND he knew from the start that she was the one for him..he let her in..and being on this 18th floor balcony basically means..when you're in love nothing else seems to matter.. So they use the line.. 18th floor balcony to resemble that it's just them.. and they're in love.. and they're both flying away..

    So we talked about mom's and dad's
    About family pasts
    Just getting to know where we came from
    Our hearts were on display
    For all to see
    I can't believe this is happening to me

    -- they got to know each other let each other in. and they let everyone else know they were in love. I can't believe this is happening to me...means..she stopped loving him.

    And I raised my hand as if to show you that I was yours
    That I was so yours for the taking
    I'm so yours for the taking
    That's when I felt the wind pick up
    I grabbed the rail while choking up
    These words to say and then you kissed me...

    --so he tried and tried to prove to her that he wanted her and he didnt' want her to go..the wind picking up.. His world crashing and he grabbed the rail because he felt like he was falling..he was so high on love.. That when she stopped loving him..he couldn't belive it. and she kissed him goodbye...

    And I'll try to sleep
    To keep you in my dreams
    'til I can bring you home with me
    I'll try to sleep
    And when I do I'll keep you in my... dreams

    --he'll never forget her..

    and basically the last verse of the song re interprets it to they both go they're separate ways.
