Can someone explain the music?

Thursday I was hearing some songs on my computer when one suddenly got my attention (I wasn’t really paying attention, the music was just for background while I was doing something else). This song was “Sad Clown” by Sarah McLachlan. For some reason, I really liked the song and played it again.

Now I got the lyrics and, for some reason, it feels like I’m feeling right now (of course, there are plenty of meanings you could take from these lyrics). It is not the first time I fall in love for some music to later found out there is something hidden in the lyrics that fit the moment.

When people say “music is the universal language”, they are not lying.

A time so haunting moonlight in the mist
Lay me down Beside you oh as long as it lasts
From the river comes a Figure drifting slowly by
Trailing long the water, leaving softer than a sigh
Softer than a sigh

All the feelings they remain like a still life
A dying swan song forever lost your cries of glory
The rain is falling down like silence in a shroud
When All that really matters left to lose
I’m all alone
I’m all alone

All the feelings they remain like a still life
A dying swan song forever lost your cries of glory
Walking from the shadows, a fear of sadness grows
Your heart is in your hand your knowing looks
Our Time is gone
My time is gone
Swan’s dying song…
