about

Notes: When you're small, you dream about being grown, about the freedom and autonomy of independence and experience. When you're grown, you dream of being small, of the freedom and autonomy that accompany a lack of responsibility. Being a kid was like playing in the light of a supernova. It was beautiful, but it was always going to burn up. But that's the way the present is too. When you dream about going back to some prior burning moment, remember that you're just as likely to dream of this one some day in the future.

lyrics

Climbing up the fence
Falling down
Scapes and bruises
And then

Wander off to sleep
Dream about
Distant answers again

Playing in the light
Supernova

Hold it in your hand
As long as you can
Not very long

Say the magic word
Count to ten
What am I thinking of?
You know

I left it in the past
With all of them
Under freshly fallen snow

Playing in the light
Supernova

Hold it in your hand
As long as you can
Not very long
