    I believe the song describes situations of caring for a child.
    First part describes a baby that's crying hard and is upset so they are feeling "blue", and feeling confusion/panic not knowing what to do to make the baby "stop" crying. So the "magic" or remedy to this situation would be to dance to make them feel better.

    Second part describes the birth of a child who who has not taken their first breath yet and is trying hard and they are turning "blue" and the feeling of panic/confusion of not knowing what to do. So the "magic" or remedy here would be what doctors traditionally do to babies in this situation which is to "slap" the baby to get them to cry so they can breath. In a sense "jump starting" their breathing.

    Song portrays two seemingly opposing situations side by side of a babies cry and the joy of their crying or not crying, and overall just the magic and blessing it is to have and care for a child and their needs. Which I feel fits nicely into the scene where he is caring for the baby.

    Always loved this song but then realized
    It kinda sounds like he's describing a child that's choking...kinda disturbing.

    This song is pretty hard to interpret but I was thinking that He’s talking about Sarah. Like, he’s referring to how she had been upset with her family and maybe she had been crying.
    Then, by taking Her brother, she was, in a way, Free.
