Field Below Lyrics

on Amazon Music

I wish I'd see a field below

i wish I'd hear a rooster crow

But there are none who live downtown

And so the day starts out so slow

Again the sun was never called

And darkness spreads over the snow

Like ancient bruises

    This song can have so many different meanings, considering Regina tends to make most of her songs with many shades and not one. For me this can be taken 2 ways:
    1) she implies a sense of winter and darkness covering everything up and cutting the world off.

    I wish I'd see a field below
    I wish I'd hear a rooster crow

    the field is covered with snow and there is no grass, ect. The rooster doesn't come out because it's too cold.

    But there are none who live downtown
    And so the day starts out so slow

    people don't come out during the cold winter.
    and so the town is barren and all is seemingly slowed down and dull.

    I'm awake and feel the ache

    waking up in the morning and cold, stiff, and sore/ achy all over.

    that is just one interpretation. i also think it could mean a lover who once was happy, vibrant, there for her, and her hope. but now he is gone and everything seems barren and she just hopes for some ray of what maybe reminds her of him or him coming back himself. she wakes up feeling the ache of missing him. the rooster crow, maybe his call coming back to her. she maybe wants a reason to get out or have her mind distracted.that's my interpretation #2. I hope this was helpful. and there are always many meanings to songs like this.
