In my life
I've felt so self assured
But suddenly it's all changed
She's a cloud
That hangs above my world
And I find myself wond'ring in the rain
And now I can't go on

'cause I am lost
Living inside myself
Living inside this shell
Living outside your love
I am lost
Somewhere inside my own dreams
Afraid of what life really means
Living without your love

I need a guiding light
To shine on my darkest days
I was young, and time was on my side
But like a fool I let it slip away
And now those days are gone

And I am lost
Living inside myself
Living inside this shell
Living outside your love
I am lost
Somewhere inside my own dreams
Afraid of what life really means
Living without your love

In my life
I've felt so self-assured
But oh how all the seasons change
And now I'm not that strong

'cause I am lost
Living inside myself
Living inside this hell
Living outside your love
I am lost
Somewhere inside my own dreams
Afraid of what life really means
Living without your love

I am lost
Living inside myself
Living inside this shell
Living outside your love
I am lost

    I believe there is a two-fold meaning to this song. I belive first that it is a song about a man, that a man only have 3 chances at three different stages in his life to become successful, that the first woman in his life his mother (the cloud that hangs above his head), let him down and that the second woman (his guiding light) is his wife or girlfriend of whom he expects to be there for him the second time around at the 2nd stage of his life is expected to fix what his mother broke in the first stage of his life which is his broken heart; at the 3rd stage where the song talks about seasons changing and not "being that strong" he's become an old man. If he didn't fulfill the first 2 stages he grows tired and disappointed because this means his life didn't turn out the way he intended it to be, he didn't become successful and he has no lagacy to leave to the next generation. Meaning number 2 depicts a male who is autistic, trapped inside himself, not being able to bond with his mother and the world around him; and growing old that way.
