Yellow Light Lyrics

I'm looking for a place to start,
But everything feels so different now.
Just grab a hold of my hand,
I will lead you through this wonderland.
Water up to my knees,
But sharks are swimming in the sea.
Just follow my yellow light,

    This song has been one of my favorite for many years now. I personally believe it's about a person going through some traumatic event(s). The man in the song is trying to help her. Guide her. Make her feel safe. Shes weary because she has been left down by many people and she doesn't know if he really is someone she can trust. Hope.

    She´s lost and confused. In a totally different place, where infinite unseen creatures are always watching. She´s tired now, surrending. She finds, not a someone, but a something, trying to lead her where she´s meant to be. She follows, knowing it´ll take her to a better place, but she´s taken to dangerous places she wasn´t meant to be. Or maybe she was. She´s starting to get scared of the darkness, he´s trying to calm her down. Finally, she gets to her destiny, in the deepest part of the "wonderland", finds death, so she can finally rest in peace.

    This song can have lots of starts, but I see that the ending is the same, fear and death.

    The girl is going through a rough situation after she had to flee from her home, and only her boyfriend is with her. He's trying to give her hope and happiness as they venture out in the wilderness, but she's scared and doesn't know if they could go back to civilization after fleeing. She feels like soft walls are eating her alive, like she has given up. But the boyfriend is convincing her life isn't so bad, and that everything happened for a reason. Then, the girl hears a wolf cry, and remembers when something shook her ground. She winds up crying and trying to run away, but the boyfriend holds her back and tells the song.
