Life leaks from you fingertips
onto sparkling pavement
havent heard the news you stumble stuttering
confused

Helicopters line the sky
marching men are rolling by
babies in their baskets blankly stare through space
hey hey

Ever since i first saw you
standing in the black frozen night
Ive been blind
but im driving in the dark towards you
not stopping till i catch the sunlight
In my eyes

Sirens sing over the streets
Chimpanzees are on TV
everybody's working waiting for the week
to end

Ever since i first saw you
standing in the black frozen night
Ive been blind
but im driving in the dark towards you
not stopping till i catch the sunlight
In my eyes
and nothing's left to hide

Ever since I first saw you
standing in the black frozen night
ive been blind
im running out of time

Ever since i first saw you
standing in the black frozen night
Ive been blind
but im driving in the dark towards you
not stopping till i catch the sunlight
In my eyes
and nothings left to hide
oh oh

    General CommentProbably because SM was down since their album came out. That's why barley anything from In Reverie has been commented on.
    Either way, this is definatly a favorite on their new album. I think it kind of speaks for itself. He's trying to find the "light", or the way even though everything is all dark. Bah, bad explanation. I need sleep.

    General Commentyeah great song. and i agree with savestheweez. definately about finding happiness and leaving the darkness/sadness behind. i think chris is turning into a hippie which isn't a bad thing.

    General CommentThis is the only song from in reverie i can stand. God, through being cool was soooo good, why have they gone downhill so much? SWYA was ok at best, but most of this album is just pathetic. Cmon guys. Don't do this to me.

    General CommentI don't understand why everyone hates In Reverie. It was a good album. And just for your information, their new album is going to be a lot better because it's "Every scrap of Saves the Day sound ever recorded", so it will have a lot of old stuff on it (hints, things from the Through Being Cool and the Can't Slow Down time period).

    General Commentyeah, In Reverie is a beautiful album. You didn't honestly believe that STD wouldn't change throughout all these years. It would have been very sad if they didn't.

    anyway, I think this song is either about God or about having faith in politicians. But I really think it's about God. He refers to wars and working to earn a living and just stuff that's going on today. And then he says "But i'm driving in the dark towards you/ Not stopping 'till I catch the sunlight in my eyes." I mean, that's what people basically do when they believe in God.

    General Commentya this album is by far very new and different to the crap being played these days. i like it better than swya. anyways i think this song is about finding happiness when you're living in a depressed/sad state. i think chris has gotten very spiritual with this album and metaphors are everywhere on this album trying to find peace/happiness.

    General CommentSTD songs are always super difficult to figure out, to me anyway. I put In Reverie on hold for a long long long time, I bought it the second it came out, but am really just now actually LISTENING to it...we'll see what comes of this. They ARE my favorite band.
