Chandelier- 1000 Forms of Fear (2014)


"I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier
I'm gonna live like tomorrow doesn't exist
Like it doesn't exist
I'm gonna fly like a bird through the night, feel my tears as they dry
I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier"


I love the fact that she is singing about a topic she has personally dealt with: alcoholism. The song has haunting lyrics as you seem to get an idea about how the conversation probably sounded in her head while she was fighting this battle. It isn't a glamorous song about getting "faded" but a song of a woman who is aware this isn't the answer but it's the only thing she feels she can turn to.
