Why do you stand in the rain
And wait for me?
With dark clothes
Dark thoughts on your mind
you evil little girl

Evil, evil little girl
You were born to make me cry
Who am I to be here right now?
Who am I to be here?

Take my heart
And throw it in a fire
Your mother must have run a school
You were trained to make me cry
Who am I to be here right now?
Who am I to be here?

Evil little girl
You were born to make me cry
Evil little girl
You were born to say goodbye
Evil little girl
You were born to make me cry

    General CommentMy personal interpretation is that he calls her "evil" because she makes him feel. And he doesn't want to. It's too painful. She can make him cry. She stands out in the rain and he asks why she even waits for him. He even asks "Who am I to be here right now?" She was born to say goodbye because he can never be there for her like she is for him because he just can't get better. It's too much. Maybe he feels broken. So she stands outside with dark thoughts, abandoned. But she waits all the same; because she loves him and she can't leave. She can throw his heart in flames by sending him into a world that he doesn't want to live in; a world of his own pain. In the end, she'll always have to say goodbye to him because he cannot ever figure out how to heal. She was born to make him cry. She always waits. But she'll always say goodbye. Very painful.

    General CommentI always considered it to be about love. Waiting in the rain for someone is a sign of love. He calls her evil and negative things because he has conflicting feelings about love. He is afraid to love and be loved, but he can't help it because she sets his heart on fire. He would rather be alone and void than have to deal with the emotions of love. Much of what was said in the below comment.

    General CommentReally? No one's commented on this song? I think its about how he feels like this girl has just been waiting for him so she can make him suffer, "with dark clothes dark thoughts on your mind" and she's waiting for him in the "rain", a time when he is already depressed and desperate for someone to lead him out of his depression. He asks who he is to be here now, as in he never thought this could happen to him. "Your mother must have run a school" i think means that he thinks women in general train their daughters to break hearts. Also left out of the lyrics above is "You were born to sing along", saying she was born to play along with how he felt for her until she was ready to say goodbye. Let me know what you think, this is easily one of the best songs on this album.

    General CommentI've seen for me that this is a man looking back at his boyhood schooldays, where he was bullied/tormented by this evil little girl. She took his heart and throwed it in a fire. People saw it, but no one did something because her mother runned the school.

    Even if it's years ago, he still has not emotionally recovered. He is still relives the humilitation, he still is marked. He can't belive the torment is over, because of the damage it has done to him. Who is he to be here now?

    Perhaps a bit too concrete interpretation, but it was what I imagined.
