I seem to be a seagull high in the clouds, scavenging the land for leftovers from the crowd. I stand alone forgotten, watching worlds go by. It's so hard to contemplate a natural high

Stone cold sober as I pick up the phone. I dial you up knowing you're not home, and don't you think I notice while you're walking by, I'm just another dreamer living a lie.

And if you think I cry for you, these tears are just the rain falling in my eyes. Think you bare strikes, but he never strikes at you. Oh yes, it's true, the rain makes me cry.

And I'm just a dreamer, dreaming thoughts of us. My mind is separated; is it love or only lust?

But beauty can deceive me, and I fell for that before, but when I look into your eyes, girl, I'm feeling something more.

And if you think I cry for you, these tears are just the rain falling in my eyes. Think you bare strikes, yeah, but he never strikes at you. Oh yes, it's true, the rain makes me cry.

You take your love for granted; you steal it when it's for free. My heart is closed to others; it's only you that holds the key.

The rain falls harder as you walk away. I lift my eyes to heaven and pray for sun today. My head sinks to the floor and without the sun to shine, puddles gather quickly with these tears of mine.

And if you think I cry for you, these tears are just the rain falling in my eyes. Think you bare strikes, yeah, but he never strikes at you. Oh yes, it's true, the rain makes me-

If you think I cry for you, these tears are just the rain falling in my eyes. Think you bare strikes, yeah, but he doesn't strike at you. Oh yes, it's true that rain makes me cry lala hey lalala ho lalala hey la. The rain makes me cry lala hey lalala ho lalala hey la. The rain makes me cry lala hey lalala ho lalala hey la. The rain makes me cry lala hey lalala ho lalala hey la. The rain makes me cry.

These tears are not for you. No baby, I know your love will never do. No, no, no, no, it's just the rain, baby. It's just the rain, baby. The rain falling in my eyes, yeah, yeah.

These tears are not for you. It's just the rain, just the rain; the rain makes me cry.

    General Commentmy gosh.
    this song means a lot to me.
    but ok her i go...

    I seem to be a seagull high in the clouds
    Scavenging the land for leftovers from the crowd

    is saying that yea... he feels left out... not getting what he really deserves and is never in with the crowd getting what they took from him... only leaving the "leftovers"

    I stand alone forgotten, watching worlds go by
    It's so hard to contemplate a natural high

    is saying that he is left out bringing up the idea of "aloneness"

    my gosh... well i gotta go now. ill be back to finish this later! haha

    General CommentI wrote an essay on this for my lit class.

    He's singing to a girl that he loves and tells about easch part of his relationship with this girl and gives visual indications of each emotion that was felt by him during the time that he was with her. Sadly, when it comes to love, Cain feels that he is always getting seconds and never getting what he truly wants the most, which is a good loving relationship with the girl he loves. The first verse is about what he felt like while he was in love and giving out all the love he has to offer but not getting any love back. Cain compares himself to a seagull in the way that he feels like he is just staying out of the whole love situation and never getting to get to the ground where he can find love. Feeling like he is always on the outside looking in on love and and the people who are in is love is shown to you in the next few lines. When he says he is "scavenging the land for leftovers from the crowd," he could be feeling like he is getting no love or attention and he has to go out looking for whatever love he can get that hasn't already been taken by the "crowd." His feelings of being unloved are made more obviously known when he says he stand slone and forgotten without any of the love or affection he feels that everybody needs. The song is made more into a romantic and cute song when he says that he picks up the phone and calls this girl even though he knows she's not home. In those same lines, Cain says that he is "stone cold sober," when he calls her, implying that there was nothing affecting his thinking when he called her so it must have been love. Cain also says that he is only a dreamer to think that the girl is in love with him like he is with her.

    General Comment[Continued]

    The chorus, which is also the second verse, is where Brett Cain makes the title come into the song. In this verse, Cain uses the rain to represent all of the unpleasant things that can happen to, and during, a relationship.The first two lones of the chorus is where he says that he isn't crying for the girl, but he admits that he is crying. He also says that his "tears are jus tthe rain falling in [his] eyes." Cain says that the girl might think that she has been hurt, probably by love, but that she really hasn't even experienced a fraction of the pain that he deals with. Then to finish off the chorus, he again admits that he cries and tells the girl that HE is the one that has dealt with pain in love, and that "yes, it's true, the rain makes [him] cry." He says that the rain makes him cry because the rain also is a symbol of all the bad things in a relationship that he experienced.

    General Comment[Continued 2.0]

    The third verse is about the confusing aspects of love and relationships. Cain once again says that he is just a dreamer, which gives the song a lighter, happier feeling. The idea of dreaming is brought up again. Dreaming is already a light word but the feeling of the word isn't continued through the verse. He says that he is not sure whether he is experiencing love or just lust with this girl. Cain lets you know that the girl he is singing to is rather beautiful and he has been deceived by beauty before. Brett says that he knows he won't be deceived by her looks like he has been before b other people. When he is with her he looks into her eyes and knows that it must be lust. It isn't backed up by the chorus, which is repeated again after this third verse.
