You're the dark to light
You're never satisfied
You only know the things that will fail to be
A pessimistic one
Who sees the end to come
Where every joy is lost to a tragedy

And still you wonder why you cannot find your peace today
'Cause you were meant to live
So much more than this
Now if only you could see

You could be standing out in the Sun
Still the rain's coming down
Rain's coming down
There ain't a cloud in sight
Still your heart beats cold and grey
Every day

You know it brings me down
The way you drag around
Your heavy heart just like a stone
Well, keep your misery
Don't put it all on me
'Cause I've got problems of my own

You could be standing out in the Sun
Still the rain's coming down
Rain's coming down
So keep your cloud of darkness and doom off my parade
Here today

And if I could you know I'd set off a spark
I would burn it out
I would burn it all away
And purify your jaded, cold calloused heart
Some day, I'll find a way

(Solo)

You could be standing out in the Sun
Still the rain's coming down
Rain's coming down
There ain't a cloud in sight
Still your heart beats cold and grey
Every day

You could be standing out in the Sun
Still the rain's coming down
Rain's coming down
Someday I'll steal the spark, I will burn your doubt away
I'll find a way

All we will to be is all we are

    It's about being in love with someone who is always synical and down on everything that they tend to sabbotage their relationships, whether its family or love. And this person is so sick of this that they are wanting to find a way to remove this cloud of darkness to prove that life/love really isn't as bad as they think.

    This song's about a pessimist who if they cheered up, they could see the good sides of things, so he could be 'standing in the sun'.

    It's about someone that is always looking at the bad sides of things and is starting to spread his pessimism and if he wasnt like that he could be standing in the sun

    I think this song's about someone not reaching their full potential. Like, i know you're greater than this, but you're just not putting forth the effort. You've lost faith in yourself.
