I'd heard the word "repose" quite a bit in life, but haven't really ever used it. When I fell in love with this song, I realized that I'd never really learned what it meant. How would light lend itself to soft repose? What does that mean?
1. the state of reposing or being at rest; rest; sleep.
2. peace; tranquillity; calm.
3. dignified calmness, as of manner; composure.
Honestly, I'm still trying to wrap my brain around the image described in the lyric. I do find it a nice thought, though. I'm attracted to peace and light. I crave those things, actually.
