Sia: Chandelier Meaning

Song Released: 2014

Chandelier Lyrics

Party girls don't get hurt
Can't feel anything, when will I learn
I push it down, push it down

I'm the one "for a good time call"
Phone's blowin' up, they're ringin' my doorbell
I feel the love, feel the love

1,2,3 1,2,3 drink

    I think this song is all about drinking all your pain away and how hard it is to stop doing that but its the only way she knows how to deal with her depression . . .

    I think its about a party girl 'swing from the chandelier' 123, 123 drink means the drinking.... 'Sun is up I'm a mess' the hangover in the morning...

    I think it all is just about her struggles in life and her trying to recover from alcoholism and how hard it is.She also shows us how her alcoholism has impacted her life.

    I think it's about alcohol consumption getting out of hand. Why? Well; 1 2 3, 1 2 3, drink.

    The song is about beating alcoholism.

    Living a depressing, unfulfilled life (Can't feel anything, when will I learn). Alcoholism (1, 2, 3 1, 2, 3 drink; Throw 'em back, till I lose count). Suicide by hanging (swing from the chandelier; live like tomorrow doesn't exist). Images of foreboding (bird in the night, tears drying). Trying to avoid suicide (holding on for dear life, won't look down won't open my eyes; Keep my glass full until morning light, 'cause I'm just holding on for tonight). Trying to recover (I'm a mess; Gotta get out now, gotta run from this; Here comes the shame).

    Sia contemplated suicide earlier in her career but managed to recover (http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-2609104/Sia-Furler-reveals-contemplated-taking-life-battling-drug-alcohol-addiction-depression.html).
