Mods removed my post on this, so many of you will never see this but here goes:
There's a lady who's sure all that glitters is gold, and she's buying a stairway to heaven
• Dany is pure of heart, and trying to buy her right to ascend to the throne of Westeros.
When she gets there she knows if the stores are all closed, with a word she can get what she came for
• If she arrives in Westeros and is of course not received well by the houses that usurped her family, with a word she can make them submit: "Dracarys." Her dragons are the key to her power.
There's a sign on the wall but she wants to be sure, cause you know sometimes words have two meanings
• She is the rightful queen of Westeros and she has been prophesied to return but prophecies are vague and open to interpretation, such as Mirri Maz Duur's and the House of the Undying visions.
In a tree by the brook there's a songbird who sings sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven
• Sansa Stark is referred to as a Songbird by the Hound, and the Starks are associated with Heart Trees. She could certainly sing a song of doubt and foreboding. This doesn't really fit with the Dany theme in a way we understand yet, but the lyric in the song is also a little removed from the lady being described. It may not yet be clear to us how they are connected.
Ooh, it makes me wonder
• --Every reader or watcher of ASOIAF at all times.
There's a feeling I get when I look to the West and my spirit is crying for leaving
• Almost literal.
In my thoughts I have seen rings of smoke through the trees and the voices of those who stand looking
• Smoke from the flames of dragons as she fights to reclaim the throne, voices from the people beholding her power.
Ooh it really makes me wonder
• Your reaction reading this post at this point.
And it's whispered that soon if we all call the tune then the piper will lead us to reason
• This could mean that if all goes according to plan, Dany will return to the throne. It could also refer to Victarion Greyjoy and Dragonbinder. Or even a reference to the children of the forest.
And a new day will dawn for those who stand long, and the forests will echo with laughter
• Another reference to the coming reckoning and another allusion to the children of the forest and maybe the weirwoods of the old gods. Maybe the children of the forest support Dany's return to face the peril from the Others and would rejoice at her return?
If there's a bustle in your hedgerow don't be alarmed now. It's just a spring clean for the May queen
• The first actual reference to a queen, and of Spring. Don't fear the coming war, it will bring about the end of Winter. The "spring clean" could also refer to Dany sweeping out the Others from the "hedgerow," or the Wall.
Yes there are two paths you can go by, but in the long run there's still time to change the road you're on
• In ASOIAF there are themes of redemption and fate, and characters that seem to be headed one way can change. Some think Dany is going mad, or losing focus in Meereen, but there is still time to get back on track. Or it could refer to the Houses of Westeros changing allegiances to support a Targaryen restoration.
Your head is humming and it won't go in case you don't know. The piper's calling you to join him
• Could refer to Victarion and Dragonbinder, or the children of the forest.
Dear lady can you hear the wind blow, and did you know your stairway lies on the whispering wind
• The Winds of Winter are beginning to blow.
(Guitar solo rages as song crescendos)
• The battle rages in Westeros
As we wind on down the road, our shadow's taller than our soul
• As her journey nears an end, Dany's reputation has grown to be larger than life and strikes fear into those who would oppose her.
There walks a lady we all know who shines white light and wants to show
• Queen Daenerys shines the light of righteousness on a war torn Westeros. Or maybe she adopts Rhllor via Victarion? Some reference to Lightbringer?
How if you listen very hard, the tune will come to you at last
• The Song of Ice and Fire will be sung.
When all is one and one is all, to be a rock and not roll
• The Houses of Westeros will again unite, and the loose rolling rocks of the kingdom will again come to peace.
(song fades and title refrain)
• The battle ceases, and there is peace again.
