The light or the rage

I found that wonderful
When you surrounded me with clouds
Feet on the earth
But the heart running along
I found that wonderful
When you surrounded me with courage
Leaving behind
How many fires on the shore
Of wisdom or anger
Which will find me first
I hide and then I hope
Sometimes I feel so afraid to be trapped
By our burning loves
 
How many mirages
Did my eyes believe to have seen so clearly
For it’s by closing our cages again
That we free ourselves
When we open up to ourselves even to the contrary
How many pages will I write before a spark
Comes to undo everything
Completely destroy what we could do
 
Let me be a child
Loved in the belly of the wind
I will love to relive this moment
 
I found that wonderful
When we were still young
My father and my mother
For one and only flash*
I found that wonderful
As you prevented me from shipwrecking
 
Taken headwinds
All our hells aboard
Of wisdom or anger
Which will find me first
I hide and then I hope
Sometimes I feel so afraid to be trapped
By our burning loves
 
How many mirages
Did my eyes believe to have seen so clearly
For it’s by closing our cages again
That we free ourselves
When we open up to ourselves even to on the contrary
How many pages will I write before a spark
Comes to undo everything
Completely destroy what we could do
 
Let me be a child
Loved in the belly of the wind
I will love to relive this moment
 
How many mirages
Did my eyes believe to have seen so clearly
For it’s by closing our cages again
That we free ourselves
 
How many mirages
Did my eyes believe to have seen so clearly
For it’s by closing our cages again
That we free ourselves
That we open up to ourselves on the contrary
Which from rage or the light
Enlightens me again, taken hostage
Between the light and rage
 
Let me be a child
Loved in the belly of the wind
I will love to relive this moment

There's a lot of imagery in this song making it difficult to understand. I've done my best yet and I'll appreciate any corrections.
