These things that I regret
Like being called a nervous wreck
And working up another sweat for you

There's nothing I can do
For counterparts and bleeding hearts
And all the things that fall apart for you

I don't keep my secrets there
I hide them everywhere

I could deny
But I'll never realize
I'm just chasing rainbows
All the time

And then I missed my cue
Everybody had a laugh
And then went for an early bath, did you

I don't keep my secrets there
No, no, no, I hide them everywhere

I could deny
But I'll never realize
I'm just chasing rainbows
All the time

(I could deny)
I could deny
But I'll never realize
I've been chasing rainbows
All my life

I could deny
But I'll never realize
I'm just chasing rainbows
All the time

(I could deny)
I could deny
But I'll never realize
I've been chasing rainbows
All my life
(I could deny)

    The verses in this song don't really mean that much to me but the chorus is just great, they say that at the end of every rainbow there's a pot of gold, and i think thats what the song is about, chasing after things that you'll never get. Shame really because we all chase dreams that are never going to happen.

    My Interpretation

    I think this is about not dwelling on those things that you wish you'd never done. If you deny the mistakes you've made, you won't learn from them and you won't achieve anything. There's nothing wrong with aiming high (chasing rainbows) and if you don't try and realise your full potential, you'll just be left with regret and you'll 'never realise' what you could be.

    My Opinion

    this is great song, like other comments suggested its about dreaming big and not perhaps not getting there, ''I could deny, but il never realise' I think means go for it and see, This is exactly the song I need in my life now
