Meteor Shower Lyrics

I've got miles of regrets and confusing friends
But perhaps it's just my stupid head in the end
Thinking should I wait here or make my way home?
You said, go
(You said, go)
Making up problems that don't exist
Why do I let myself dream like...

    I believe that the vocalist is trying to warn the person the song's about from going down the same path as them and is willing to do anything to keep them safe. At one point, the singer says, "Missing pieces of my skull." Later on, they also say, "Sew up your skull, take your time." This could represent the singer warning the person they care about the path that they're following. In the line, "There's nothing you or I can do so let the stars fall." Since the stars represent the singer's thoughts, this line might show that the singer feels as if they're falling apart. They care about the person they're singing for significantly and would never wish their path upon them, so they are willing to do anything to care for them. An example of this is in the line, "I'd sell my own bones for sapphire stones because blue is your favorite color."

    I think Meteor Shower for me is told of a person who loves another person, they would do anything just for the other person. It shows in the lyrics, "I'd sell my own bones for sapphire stones, because blue is your favorite color.". This shows the person would do things for the other, so it's shown the song is about the person doing anything for the other.

    The song “Meteor Shower” is about a person and who they love as they go through a metaphorical of a literal meteor shower. The person speaking cares very much about the other and would sacrifice many things for them and says so throughout the song.

    I see it as a trans person’s journey in discovering themselves. He knows that he can’t stay here, he know he has to “make his way home”, but he is still unsure. He can’t understand why he’s allowing himself to have those thoughts, imagining becoming another person, or more precisely who he actually feel at home as. But, when he does, he feels like as if he is flying, that he feels like the “sky’s his thoughts”. I think the missing piece of his skull part is a metaphor to his body which he is unsatisfied with, and I believe “sapphire stone” represents HRT, hormones replacement therapy. In the end, he tells himself to take his time, and take it slowly, and reassure himself that he will know his way on his way back home.

    A person who cares for another and wants everything for them and would do anything to get it. As said in ‘I’d sell my own bones for sapphire stones, ‘cause blue is your favourite colour’ also showing the person knows the others interests, etc.
    I really love this song and the meaning just as much! <3

    i can see the fact the person who sings this is so obsessed with someone they would sacrifice themselves to make their person happy
