Going through it
Pulling the rain off my face
There's someone watching
A pretty girl stands next to me
When she looks up
She sees a rainbow
And for all that the music plays
In my head
I feel separation
When the light that hits the room starts fading
A subtle whisper in my ear is all I'm asking
As the sunshine's day
Brings hope to most
I still wanna be with you
Sitting here all alone
I don't need my fucking phone
But I got my expectation
So they ate that grape
I still feel the thump in my chest
And I never back down for no one
It doesn't get me closer to you
Just 'cause I can't pray
Doesn't mean I don't feel you
When the light that hits the room starts fading
A subtle whisper in my ear is all I'm asking
As the sunshine days
Bring hope to most
I still wanna be with you
When the light that hits the room starts fading
A subtle whisper in my ear is all I'm asking
When the sunshine day
Brings hope to most
I wanna be with you
When the light that hits the room starts fading
When the light that hits the room starts fading
Going through it
Pulling the rain off my face
There's someone watching
A pretty girl stands next to me
When she looks up
She sees a rainbow
And for all that the music plays
In my head
I feel separation

    General CommentI think this song is about a guy or a girl in a relationship with someone that can't commit. The lines "As the sunshine's day/Brings hope to most/I still wanna be with you" make me think that only after dark will she commit, but the next day he/sahe re-thinks it and avoids the other person, hence "I feel separation."

    Also, "When the light that hits the room starts fading/A subtle whisper in my ear is all I'm asking" makes me think that even at night he/she still won't be close to the narrator... but the "I still wanna be with you" obviously means the narrator still wants to be with the other person even after all the pain from "separation" he/she has caused.

    It could be that even when the two are together, the narrotor still feels "separated" from his/her partner... even though "When she looks up she sees a rainbow," or ignores the narrator, he feels the pain and she doesn't care.

    General Commentjustlikeheaven05 - I think Kevin Cadogan, former 3eb guitarist, is the one singing here. He performed this live (before? / after?) his own "separation" from 3eb. It can be heard on youtube.

    General CommentYeah, this song was written completely by Cadogan. As he puts it on Youtube, "So you folks (k)now, Jenkins had nothing to do with the writing or recording of this song. This is a solo piece of mine I recorded on a crappy 8track with a drum machine."
