Daddy got his oak leafs yesterday
And missed your graduation so you say
Well it's time to find somebody new to believe in

You seem to me the type of girl that men forget
From face to face to back to bed
You spend most your time
Walking off the letdowns

But the hardest thing for you
Is just to let that bell ring true and everybody knows

A little rain must fall, everybody knows
A little rain must fall

Well I should be the one to talk
But I seem OK, not worth a damn or so they say
Well I wish that boy would find one thing he can believe in

I used to be the type to cry but now I laugh
From wall street hippie to sociopath
I spend most of my time
Walking off the letdowns

But the hardest thing to do
Is just to let that bell ring true and everybody knows

A little rain must fall everybody knows
A little rain must fall but we can wait it out together
You see it never lasts forever and everybody knows
A little rain must fall

Now I know I'll find the sunshine to soothe me when I'm needy
And I know this is just a little rise in the road
And I can feel my luck is changing and it's rising up to greet me
And I can see there's just a little farther to go
Oh but right now everybody knows

Well the sun comes up in different ways in Rockwell paintings and Hemingway
Now who do you suppose those two fools believed in
Is it just a stroke of luck fat chance or is it just a matter of circumstance
Well perfection sure get's boring anyway
But tomorrow's another day
And everybody knows

[Chorus: x2]

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,
