Jumpin' on a trampoline
Flippin' in the air
I never learned to just float there
I'll be looking up
Suddenly the sky erupts
Flames alight the trees
Spread to fallin' leaves
Now they're right upon me
Wait if I'm...

To me this song is about suicide.

She dreams of dying because she's tired. She's hurting so bad she feels weightless and powerless. She dreams of a beautiful life forgotten and the reality that it has passed. Her present state of being is numbness and surrender to the fact that she is lost. She remembers her strength and her worth but, is now too exhausted by the continual onslaught of the sad and lonely life she has steadily faced. She is giving up her spirit and simply existing. Death to her feels merciful.

I also believe Trampoline is about abuse in a relationship. She loves this person so much, that even in her discomfort, she believes the love she has for her lover is worth it.
She used to be a happy, carefree person, and she didn't have a lot of goals or ambitions, but she was content. And then, she met someone that overtook her state and before she knew it, she was compromised and got sucked into the cycle of abuse.
She's now under the control of another, and she's dying, but she's happy to die - because, in her mind, she believes that she truly loves this person. She is aware that the safety and comfort in her life are gone, but she feels that she asked for this ('I wanted it to happen') - this is what she chose to do. The pain she's going through doesn't even make sense in her mind, but she also still prefers to believe this is where she is supposed to be.
I love this song. She is screaming for help, but she doesn't see a way out. It contains beautiful imagery, and though it's tragic, many people are also trapped here and go through this every day. This song for me is about perspective and how important it is to share what you're going through with people that care about you. I hope this speaks to those that need this important advice.

My granddaughter ( she's 5,5 years old ) is scared of the song. Every time she hears the song she tells me that girl wants to die. My granddaughter says it is very sad and scary and always asks to turn it off.

When I listen to this song I interpret it as if it’s the end of humanity by ways of a asteroid. And the chorus states that if she is on fire, why she has never felt as lived as she does at this moment of “the end”. Further making me imagine that’s the deep love she is feeling is that of God our creator. So she embraces it all.

I interpret the song as she is in an abusive relationship where it seems like her only relief is her dreams. She feels stuck and it seems like the only way to be free is to die. *(For anyone in this situation I know it feels like that but it is not true!)

I believe this song is about how she was experiencing a horrifying moment and she was stuck there. She is trying to embrace the horribleness she is feeling.
