can't hold on to me 
wonder what's wrong with me

don't want to lock me up inside 
don't want to forget how it feels without 
I want to stay in love with my sorrow.

Don't want to let it lay me down this time 
drown my will to fly 
here in the darkness I know myself 
can't break free until I let it go 
let me go...

The eye is drawn to the centre of the image where the blue / white hair parts. The image is full of symmetry although pleasingly not perfect mirror images - reflecting what we see in the real world. The plants either side of the path, the folds in the dress, the long hanging hair, the boots, and the path leading to the light in the distance are examples. There is a feeling of sadness? loss? in the image emphasised by the dark tones and lack of a visible face. The title itself Lithium add to the sombre mood - hints of illness. Questions are raised - where is the light coming from - is it the moon or man made. Do the gates keep the person in .. or out... are they sad or are they relieved on escaping. An image that does so much more than the lyrics suggest.

The symmetry is calming. It makes her apparent despair more potent. Yet she seems to care about herself. Her hair, clothes and boots show passion for order. Perhaps hiding rather than giving up. That is the fascination: the contrast between strongly negative body position and almost idealistic attention to appearance. Intriguing - and that is the power of the image. The closed gate and mournful colours offer no hope or future yet there is a little light in the distance. Just enough to make the overall atmosphere balanced. If there were another sign - such as an animal near her - a message would emerge. At the moment, she´s powerfully appealing but she is silent. Thank you for making life a question.
