Sparks are what you see when you reach an ephemeral & momentary state of Nirvana, when you have the most inspirational thought, or conversely think about something banal…but either way you transcend higher plains/realms/dimensions & you are in union with them for a brief moment in time: as sparks don’t last more than a second. For the truly enlightened ones, you see SPARKS every now & then in moments of solitude & privacy, OR they could just appear out of nowhere, much like a network of spies/angels/aliens or a combination these three: this agnostic’s new found pseudo HOLY TRINITY. The other message of the song is about expressing how Daniel wants to live The Right Life, the fair life, the ethical life. He's forsaking drugs, booze, sex with groupies...& he wants to be faithful to his wife Natalie Imbruglia.
