Outside the sun rose
and you stayed inside
you kept your eyes closed
and pulled down the shades
on your windows
you decided to hide
out from the sunlight
it's too bright
it just doesn't sit right
with the way you’re feeling today
you’re cloudy and gray
ok now you'll take today
to try and chase it away
hey! you’re chasing the sun away
hey! you’re chasing the sun...
how could the sun come
out after the night
she walked away from
what you thought was true love
and how come
there isn't barrels of rain
on the day
after the night
she said "there's someone else"
how come?
could someone explain,
where is the rain?
rain, send barrels of rain
to coincide with the pain
hey! you’re chasing the sun awayx3
hey! you’re chasing the sun...
hey! hey! hey! chase it away...
Outside the sun rose
and you stayed inside
you kept your eyes closed
pulled down the shades
on your windows
you decided to hide
out from the sunlight
it's too bright
it just doesn't sit right
with the way you’re feeling today
you’re cloudy and gray
hey! you’re chasing the sun awayx3
hey! you’re chasing the sun...

    General CommentThis song is about a guy who was dumped by his girlfriend who left him for another guy. His feelings and emotions are all sad, or "cloudy and gray", but its sunny outside. He wants the sun to just go away... Thats what ive got from it...
