Bliss Lyrics

Everything about you is how I'd wanna be
Your freedom comes naturally,
Everything about you resonates happiness
Now I won't settle for less

Give me all the peace and joy in your mind

Everything about you pains my envying
Your soul can't...

    This song is about being in a perfect state of mind. It's aimed towards some one's youth, talking about how children and young people lead very simple lives. Matt said that this is his favorite song because it reminds him of a time when things were simpler, and a bit more pleasant.

    This song gives the impression that Matt is in envy of a lot of younger people and children because they have "peace and joy" in their minds.

    The line "everything about you resonates happiness, now I won't settle for less" means that this person is always happy, and that Matt wishes he could be like them.

    This song talks about how Matt wants to be like this person, not that he is necessarily in love with them.

    For me, this music is about faith, in God.

    "Everything about you pains my envying"
    It's how we can't be perfect, like Jesus is.

    "Your soul can't hate anything"
    As I said, Jesus is perfect.

    I guess the rest does not need a detailed explanation.

    Thats what the song mean to me, and could not mean the same for you.

    You know what, this reminds me of The Nurse's Song by William Blake in Songs of Experience. It's basically someone who's jealous of something/someone who is undeserving of their jealousy. Someone/something who is innocent - but that innocence itself is something to yearn for, or even grow jealous of. Bellamy is almost begging/praying/trying to summon the will to have what they have - peace and joy in his mind. He's yearning for that simplicity he had as a child where all that "grown up" stuff didn't matter, and he could simply exist.
    To me this song just screams frustration, and yearning. It's that cusp where you become aware of the fact that you are unjustifiably envious of something which you, yourself have lost/given up/never had.

    Bliss also is a character of the famous sci-fi writer Isaac Asimov in his Foundation Series. She is a part of Gaia.Gaia is a planet of a single consciousness, a single super organism, in a sense. She is a 'young woman' introduced in Foundation's Edge as the Gaian constituent who first greets 2 human cosmonauts, who are on a mission to find Earth. What they find is Gaia, a planet that is one large organism -- where every person, every tree, every sandgrain is part of the organism, sharing group memories. Bliss, like all Gaians, has two natures; her private role as Bliss, and her meta-role as being a constituent element of Gaia. She often says "I/We/Gaia" to make clear that she is speaking of the whole of Gaia as a superorganism. where all things, both living and inanimate, participate in a larger, group consciousness, while still retaining any individual awareness they might have, such as among the Gaian humans.

    The description of Bliss could, with some goodwill, also fit Bellamys song.... (Who knows?)

    This is obviously about a person being in love with someone who he/she views as perfect when he says, "I won't settle for less" meaning that the person is the one or the most perfect and no one could be better and he/she wants the love to be requited and "everything about you is so easy to love" meaning that he/she is totally in love
