Im gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier

Cause Im just holding on for tonight

Cant feel anything, when will I learn?

Im gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier

Meaning of the video follows from the lyrics: The life ofparty girls dont get hurtis a fake. Everyone just wants themfor a good time call.They fake smiles and are puppet-controlled by others. Ultimately theyre as alone as the gymnast with her invisible friends, lovers, party. Life isnt pretty when you livelike tomorrow doesnt exist.

Phones blowin up, theyre ringin my doorbell

The meaning of Sias singleChandelierhas aparty girlstarts sounding fun withfeel the love,then sinks into the desperatelyjust holding on for tonight.At first itsparty girls dont get hurt,soundinglike Keysha (or others) line. Lines likeIm the one for a good time call… theyre ringing my doorbell, feel the love.But thedarkness stands even in the very second linecant feel anything,when will I learn?The party girl isnt loved, shes an object, almost a call girl. She tries to forget with1,2,3 1,2,3 drink.She tries tolive like tomorrow doesnt existpartying so hard shellswing from the chandelier(exposing everything)… But even so, she can stillfeel my tears as they dry. The disaster comes with more than a hangover.Sun is up, Im a mess. Gotta get out now, gotta run from this.Here comes the shame.Sia pulls back the veil on the despair of partyinglike tomorrow doesnt exist.

Ask Yourself:What does Sias lineIm gonna live like tomorrow doesnt existreally feel like?

Keep my glass full until morning light,

Cause Im just holding on for tonight

Keep my glass full until morning light,

Music Video:A girl gymnast plays the young Sia (who doesnt like making appearances in her own videos).The music video begins with the gymnast hanging from the bedroom door, it ends with forced curtseys to a empty doorway.Her ballerina moves are amazing, but her actions mimic the following: being moved like a puppet, forced smiles, tears, hiding in a corner, stroking a (pregnant?) belly, arguing with no-one and collapsing on the floor. The video takes place in three acts: a bedroom with mouldy walls (and Sia portraits), a kitchen where the girl talks to herself, and a living room where she entertains invisible guests and dances-drinks to a party thats not there. Halfway to the end she runs out and desperately knocks on a door that doesnt open for her, so she returns sad to the room of the empty party.

lifestyle, Sias song goes a little further than just the partying. She describes what happens when

Help me, Im holding on for dear life,

Here comes the shame, here comes the shame

Im gonna fly like a bird through the night,

Keep my glass full until morning light,

Im gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier

Gotta get out now, gotta run from this

Im gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier

Help me, Im holding on for dear life,

Im gonna fly like a bird through the night,

Cause Im just holding on for tonight

Im gonna live like tomorrow doesnt exist

Cause Im just holding on for tonight

Keep my glass full until morning light,

Im gonna live like tomorrow doesnt exist
