He woke up from dreaming and put on his shoes
Started making his way past two in the morning
He hasn't been sober for days

Leaning now into the breeze
Remembering Sunday, he falls to his knees
They had breakfast together
But two eggs don't last
Like the feeling of what he needs


Now this place seems familiar to him
She pulled on his hand with a devilish grin
She led him upstairs, she led him upstairs
Left him dying to get in

Forgive me, I'm trying to find
My calling, I'm calling at night
I don't mean to be a bother,
But have you seen this girl?
She's been running through my dreams
And it's driving me crazy, it seems
I'm gonna ask her to marry me

Even though she doesn't believe in love,
He's determined to call her bluff
Who could deny, these butterflies?
They're filling his gut

Waking the neighbors, unfamiliar faces
He pleads, oh he tries
But he's only denied
Now he's dying to get inside

Forgive me, I'm trying to find
My calling, I'm calling at night
I don't mean to be a bother,
But have you seen this girl?
She's been running through my dreams
And it's driving me crazy, it seems
I'm gonna ask her to marry me

The neighbors said she moved away
Funny how it rained all day
I didn't think much of it then
But it's starting to all make sense
Oh, I can see now that all of these clouds
Are following me in my desperate endeavor
To find my whoever, wherever she may be

[Juliet Simms:]
I'm not coming back, (forgive me)
I've done something so terrible
I'm terrified to speak, (I'm not calling, I'm not calling)
But you'd expect that from me
I'm mixed up, I'll be blunt;
Now the rain is just (you're driving me crazy, I'm)
Washing you out of my hair and out of my mind
Keeping an eye on the world,
So many thousands of feet off the ground
I'm over you now
I'm at home in the clouds
Towering over your head

[Alex Gaskarth:]
Well I guess I'll go home now
I guess I'll go home now
I guess I'll go home now
I guess I'll go home.

    Actually, this song doesn't have anything to do with the fact that this girl committed sucide, as odd as that sounds. In fact, in the song "vegas" he talks about how he would marry that girl if he could. Now in "remembering sunday", he talks about how he lost that very same girl. The part "i'm at home in the clouds" is about being on a plane. She didn't commit suicide, she just simply left him. You don't think this is true? And even on an interview with alex, he told them the meaning of this song, and that is what he said. So no, she did not commit suicide to those of you who think she did.

    I agree for the first half but disagree with the second part. I believe the first part is true until the plane thing. I think when she says she's done something terrible she committed suicide. And the neighbors don't want to have to tell him because they don't want to have to bring the bad news. When it gets to the part where she is thousands of feet over the ground I think she's saying she's in heaven and she's watching over him. Which is also why the clouds are following him in his desperate endeavor because she is in the clouds watching over him. And she's at home (in heaven) in the clouds. And then he finally finds out she's dead so all can really do is just go home because he has nothing else to do now.

    Alex apparently wrote this song because he fell in love with a girl and he wanted to marry her and when he went back to ask her to marry him "the neighbors said she moved away" and Alex found out later that the girl actually committed suicide. His brother had also committed suicide which is why he says "This place feels familiar to him". This song has so much meaning in it, and I love it. Alex has been through so much and I really admire him.

    I've heard lots of theories about what this song is about. This one is my favorite because it is extremely dramatic and sad and tragic in a beautiful way: so this guy has a brief affair with a girl. He falls in love with her. Even though she says that she doesn't believe in love he doesn't believe her and still wants to marry her. So he goes out to find her even though he doesn't have any of her contacts. When he figures out where she lives she is no longer there. He asks the neighbors who said that she's gone. The weather turns bad, reflecting his mood because he knows that the news is bad. You figure out that the girl isn't coming back because she did something so terrible, she killed herself. Now she's "at home in the clouds" watching over him. She still hopes the best for him. But he is crushed by the end of the song, giving up and going home. The end isn't that a tragically lovely love story?

    I love this song.
    I think it means his woke up from dreaming of this girl he loved that has killed herself and he his been drinking to relieve the pain. Then his remembering things and how good it felt like breakfast together and when she led him upstairs. He is then trying to find her because he wants to marry her but no one has seen her and then he realises shes killed herself. She then says that shes done something terrible and I think its that she didn't mean for him to fall for her and now shes killed herself and shes watching above. I'm not sure if his saying his going home as in home or as in heaven home but id like to think its home.
