Went to the corner of second and main
and there was someone there
who mentioned that they hoped that it would rain forever, forever,
so they could drown in peace.

Went down to the hodskin p.l.
but there was nobody to answer
when I rang the doorbell forever, forever
so now I'm sad all the time.

Sick and sad again. Sometimes I'd like the rain to end. Sick and sad again. Sometimes I'd like to stand on my own two feet.

Today was the day
but she threw it all away
and I could never understand 'cause she was never one to play
by the rules of the game
her and me we're so the same
I try so hard
and I never give in
and I am never satisifed until the day that I win
I can't stand
but I don't care I'll follow her to anywhere.

    General CommentAbout a guy that goes to find a girl that he likes but she isn't there but he keeps trying and trying. He is in love with the girl and they were very much alike and he's not going to give up until she finds her because he wants the rain to end (as in he doesn't want to die) and he wants to stand and never give up.

    General CommentAnyone else here catch the underlay at the end of the second verse? He throws in a line from Keasbey Nights at the same time as the last couple lines "But I don't care I'll follow her to anywhere" You can hear faintly "But I don't care I can fade away to anywhere don't stop cause you might get dropped" Thought that was interesting.

    General CommentDamn Mad Jeddai, you have good ears to hear that. I can only catch the very end when he says "you might get dropped". Good catch.

    Lyric CorrectionI slowed down the part with the fat singing in the back and I got this. "but i dont care i will go follow her to anywhere, don't stop 'cuz you might get dropped."

    General CommentWant your mind blown? Go to youtube and watch some of the videos where he does this song acoustic then sings "the big sleep" and then "Somewhere in the between"
    Godly. The crowds are so amazing.

    General CommentThis song is about a girl he know who kills herself. If you follow along with the lyrics it makes perfect sense. it foreshadows death from the very beginning, mentioning "someone there who mentioned that they hoped that it would rain forever, forever, so they could drown in peace."

    he hears this on the way to the girl's place, and when he gets there, ringing the doorbell "forever, forever" implies that he could literally ring it forever and she would never answer because she's gone and can't come back, and that's why now he's sad all the time.

    "Today was the day but she threw it all away" this line is the differentiating point between the song being about suicide and just being about not having a girl. it doesnt fit with the latter. He can't understand why she did it because he saw them as similar people, trying so hard and never giving in. The difference is that ultimately, life got to her and she did give in.
