Chorus:
I'm gonna swing from the chandelier
From the chandelier
I'm gonna live like tomorrow doesn't exist
Like it doesn't exist
I'm gonna fly like a bird through the night
Feel my tears as they dry
I'm gonna swing from the chandelier
From the chandelier

  • The song is about "alcoholism and depression", look at the apartment, the disorder and the things on the floor, it seems like the home of a depressed person, the dancer is totally alone, nobody accompanies her in her suffering.
    The phrase "push it down" refers to whether or not to drink a glass.
    The phrase "Help me" is a call for help, but it goes almost unnoticed.
    The dance also has many meanings, she dances playing someone drunk and depressed, she shows all her emotions without anyone caring, no one is watching her.
    The dancer (Maddie Ziegler) has her hands painted pink, this means blood from suicide attempts, the author did not want to use red to avoid being so controversial.
    There is a lot of meaning in the dance, almost everything has to do with the context of the song, the rest is dance to accompany and make transitions.

    At 00:12 I am a party girl, I am with a drink in my hand, do I drink it or not drink it? I push it down and I raise it again, I am undecided, I have to leave it, when will I learn?
    At 00:27 she talks on the phone and is invited to go out partying, while holding a glass of wine. It is time to drink nonstop and lose your mind.
    At 00:55 I am hurt, I am like a dog in a wheelchair that crawls with wheels towards the corner, but I get up with difficulty.
    At 01:00 Everything has passed, now I am happy for life and without worries, everything is fine. But then I fall back from above, time to drink and do crazy things, to have a good time.
    At 01:22 the stomach demands food. I'm drunk, I almost lose my balance. I say goodbye with a kiss to everyone. Nobody helps me, don't worry about me, I hold my hair myself and go.
    At 01:34 it is time to sit down to eat spaghetti, I take the fork I stab it on the wall and throw it. Now I have passed out and I wake up again, I scare the flies on each side, now a cockroach climbs the wall, I clean my mouth, the food was horrible, now my stomach hurts.
    At 02:01 Playing dice, I am now a gansgter. I shake and shake the bad off me, I go to a corner to cry.
    At 02:24 she runs to the window but stops and turns with a scared face and backs up with trembling steps.
    At 02:32 she cuts her veins in each hand and says goodbye, then she goes to the street and knocks on doors for help, nobody responds.
    At 02:42 she leans against the wall, she is exhausted and depressed, she is about to fall apart. Pause the minute 02:44, it is the best scene, you can see his depressed face and his body about to fall. Then she runs jumping every obstacle on her way.
    At 02:56 I open my eye, I hardly have any signs of life. The tears run down her face, she tries to commit suicide by hanging herself with the curtains, her air runs out and she says goodbye to everyone (she observes that the curtains have blood stains).
    At 03:12 I am looking for someone to take refuge in, but love is not pious with me, I repress it, I repress it.
    At 03:26 It is time to get up and continue pretending before everyone, I walk a tightrope and smile falsely at everyone, my face changes from happy to sad, I lie to them, I'm fine.
    "Chandelier" is about someone drunk, imagine someone who drinks until they lose their minds and don't care about anything, hangs on even a candlestick, let's live regardless of tomorrow.
    The video has many more meanings than the ones I have mentioned and is fully choreographed.

    Sorry for my English, Google translator.

    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
    One, two, three, one, two, three, drink
    One, two, three, one, two, three, drink
    One, two, three, one, two, three, drink
    Throw em back, till I lose count
    I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier
    I'm gonna live like tomorrow doesn't exist
    Like it doesn't exist
    I'm gonna fly like a bird through the night, feel my tears as they dry
    I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier
    And I'm 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
    Help me, I'm 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
    On for tonight
    Party girls don't get hurt
    Can't feel anything, I push it down, push it down
    I'm the one "for a good time call"
    Phone's blowin' up, I feel the love, feel the love
    I feel the love, feel the love
    Sun is up, I'm a mess
    Gotta get out now, gotta run from this
    Here comes the shame, here comes the shame
    One, two, three, one, two, three, drink
    One, two, three, one, two, three, drink
    One, two, three, one, two, three, drink
    Throw em back till I lose count
    I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier
    I'm gonna live like tomorrow doesn't exist
    Like it doesn't exist
    I'm gonna fly like a bird through the night, feel my tears as they dry
    I'm gonna swing from the chandelier, from the chandelier
    And I'm 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
    Help me, I'm 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
    On for tonight
    On for tonight

    I just found out she sings Chandelier....Her Unstoppable video bought me here and to tears when I read Christian Alejandro's comments. I would never know but the beauty and messages from both songs are inspiring. She is UNSTOPPABLE!
