Fall Into the Sky
Ellie Goulding Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

This feeling is heavy
Makes my body ache and I'm ready
To fall into the sky
I see now
The reason why

My heart is heavy
Takes me to a place I can't breathe
Only then I know why I see




The warning sign

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of the song Fall Into the Sky convey the feeling of being weighed down by intense emotions that can lead to a sense of suffocation. The lines, "This feeling is heavy, makes my body ache and I'm ready to fall into the sky," suggest a desire to escape from the burden of emotions. The feeling of heaviness is also reflected in the following lines, "My heart is heavy, takes me to a place I can't breathe." This emotional struggle becomes clearer as the lyrics progress, when the reason behind these feelings is finally revealed, "Only then I know why I see the warning sign."


The overall meaning behind the song could be interpreted as the struggle to stay afloat amidst intense emotions that are as complex as they are overwhelming. It is only when we acknowledge these emotions that we can truly understand their impact on our lives, as well as the warning signs that we may have ignored before. By falling into the sky, we may be able to escape these emotions, but at the same time, we lose touch with our actual reality.
