I'd rather be in the middle of nowhere
100 miles from this town
Some kids are born in the pouring rain
Some with the sun shining down
What does it mean to live in a world
Where things are made this way
I for one can't catch the sun
I was born on a cloudy day

We see the sunset, we see the sunrise
Though we know it isn't true
I'd like to see a light in her eyes
But it's all darkness beyond the blue
When the heart ain't nothin but an old worn out machine
A little silence, a breath of air is all I really need

I won't wait for that morning
I won't wait for a sign
For my kingdom is forsaken
When I wait for valentines

I used to want to be famous
On the stage or screen
I don't mind the spotlight
People see what they want to see
What are dreams but tormentors
The source of all our pain
We ain't nothin but the stories we tell
I was born just before the rain
