Feel I'm

floating, floating and

Look up

and the sky was

broken, broken and

Woke up

and my hand was

open, open and so

And all you want is a rainbow,
and all you get is the rain.

I'll be drawing chalk stars, on a black board
seeing rainbows, in the raincloud.

Don't you know we all cry,
honey, sometime
when the sun goes down
when the sun goes down

Dreamt I

was a dark sky

and the dawn was breaking, and

Woke up

and my heart was,

aching. Honey it was aching, and so

And all you want is a rainbow,
and all you get is the rain.

And I'll be drawing chalk stars, on a black board
seeing rainbows, in the raincloud.

Don't you know we all cry,
honey, sometimes
when the cold light of day
is sleeping at the weel
is sleeping at the weel

    Song MeaningI think this song is about being depressed - "and all you want is a rainbow, and all you get is the rain"
    and in particular feeling depressed at night - "when the cold light of day is sleeping at the wheel" "when the sun goes down".

    I saw these guys last year supporting Snow Patrol, thought they were really good.
