The story behind this song is ironically haunting, however, the way it talks about dreaming to fly like a bluebird away from those chimney tops makes it mystical. Perhaps the "dreams that we dare to dream really do come true" if we hold on our hope that the bad times will one day indeed be over. Let everything happen to you - Beauty and terror. Be river and know that there is no hurry, you will get there some day. I get it now, I didn't get it then that it always waits for some crisis to occur before revealing itself at its most brilliant. It always gives us a second chance when we really want something and all that remains are only memories. Perhaps you can too relate to this feeling of hope within this song.
As they say - It's going to be all okay.
Happy new year!
