Whats the meaning of Sias Chandelier song?

Posted on: April 30, 2018, by :

Swinging from the chandelier is a well known and long established metaphor for partying to excess. Although I think the song is autobiographical and Sia had once contemplated suicide, I dont think suicide is the intended meaning. It is about the emptiness and pain that accompanies alcoholism and substance abuse. Party girls dont get hurt and cant feel anything because they push down the pain. Drinking provides an escape, but in the morning light one wakes to the reality of an empty life. The feeling the love is just an illusion because the party friends are only good time friends and there are no meaningful relationships when all your friends have the same addiction problems. In the morning light, the realization that one is trapped in this endless cycle causes shame. If you keep your glass full and dont look down, you can, at least for the night, avoid the painful truth. Sia chooses a child for the video to represent her fragile inner child and the dilapidated surroundings reflect the desperate and bleak mental state of her mind. The forced smiles and the curtsies at the end are the personae that she presents to the world. It is a never ending dance going between the manic and depressive states..

The only time she could escape from reality was when she was high, under the influence of alcohol and drugs. She could be carefree, live like tomorrow didnt exist.

NOTE: Im not sure about the last para.

Before Chandelier, Sia was a singer with mediocre success.

This oneis my favorite, because it interprets the line in a literal way.

However, the next verse, Im the one for a good-time call, phones blowin up, theyre ringin my doorbell; I feel the love suggests the party girl in the song only feels loved when shes out drinking.

The video makes sense only with the lyrics. And I know its hard to concentrate on the lyrics while watching the video. So I suggest that you listen to lyrics first.

Why does Sia often forget the words in her songs?

Gotta get out now, gotta run from this

Youre trying to convince everyone that youre just fine and are amazing, because youre truly trying to convince yourself, but you cant. You know its BS, so you drink. But the attention, good, bad, or whatever, fills enough of the void that you just keep going.

Here comes the shame, here comes the shame

Chandelier is a haunting, beautiful song- a cautionary tale by one who knows the subject matter all too well.

How old was Sia when her song Chandelier came out?

The girl is sad and just going through her life living one day at a time. She is scared and unhappy. ( Im holding on for dear life, wont look down wont open my eyes, keep my glass full until morning light) She wants alcohol to take all of her pain away.

Whats the meaning of Sias Chandelier song?

Im gonna fly like a bird through the night

I feel that somehow when Sia wrote this song, she saw into my personal shame and wrote it about me. From my personal experience, this is more about depression and deluding oneself than drinking, even though drinking is a way to avoid the ever persistent sadness. She hates herself for giving into becoming who everyone expects her to be, so she plays the part, but drinks until she numbs away the shame. When the world has given you no reason to go on, you just live very dangerously and carelessly on the edge, just to feel like you exist in the world and you matter. Partly wishing something would just take all the pain away. One day at a time.

Is the video for Chandelier by Sia real or CGI?

The creepy end where Maddie bows three times MAYBE the loner girl challenging the viewer/listener to dare come in her life and help her. I say DARE because the girl thinks that nobody in his or her sane mind would like to interact and engage in such a complicated and depressing life.

She was really struggling to push her career when she lost her partner to an accident. She got addicted to drugs, suffered depression and even wrote a suicide note. Drugs and alcohol were her only coping mechanisms. This song is about the time she was addicted to alcohol and drugs and her struggle to get out of it.

AsTanaymentioned in her well thought out response, this song is about Sias alcohol and drug issues.

The songs meaning is expanded a bit further by the video, where the young dancer depicts the mental strain of addiction, and the eerily dim, deserted, apartment shes in represents the terrible lonliness SIA has mentioned she felt as an addict.
