Mazzy Star - Blue Light

There's a blue light in my best friend's room
There's a blue light in his eyes
There's a blue light, yeah
I wanna see it shine
There's a ship that sails by my window
There's a ship that sails on by
There's a world under it
I think I see it sailing away
I think it's sailing miles
Crashing me by
Crashing me by
Crashing me by
There's a world outside my doorstep
Flames over everyone hot
Don't you see them shining
I wanna hear them beating for me
I think I hear them waves
Crashing me by
Crashing me by
Crashing me by

"Blue Light" is a song by Mazzy Star released on October 5, 1993. It is track five on the album "So Tonight That I Might See". "This is a beautifully mysterious song, but for me the basic take-away is a feeling of yearning and connection to all of humanity and to the world we live in. The blue light in the best friend's room could just be the glow of a TV, reflected in his eyes - though as the pulsating glow of the song itself, it also represents the power of the universe running through us. The singer is sharing her sensation - one many of us often feel - of being disembodied, sailing, floating, seeing the world as pure energy. This isn't cold - rather, she's filled with a kind of serene joy and is trying to share the experience with us: "Don't you see them shining." The song is a beautiful, open-ended expression of an almost spiritual love for a blue-lit world and the flaming hearts swimming within it." - @prviola, SongMeanings
