The clue is in the title. Vain = Vanity = Egotistical = Me! Me! = Conceited = Puffed Up = Self Love.

Superb song with carefully crafted lyrics.

No idea what that means, but I am A Okay with it.

“I had some dreams they were clouds in your coffee”

I got the first part wrong, but I'm pretty sure it's "my" at the end and not "your", no?

Just listened to it and you are 100% correct sir/madam.

It's all good. I knew better on the first part too, but got it wrong nonetheless.

Any ideas on what she might mean? I've never given it much thought, but always noticed it as a neat lyric.

I take it to mean that she had dreams about the future but to him they were just the inconsequential clouds that milk makes in coffee that disappear… writing this now I see maybe that doesn’t make sense though lol

I read, probably with the lyrics at Spotify, that she was on a plane and noticed that the clouds reflected in her cup of coffee. And used it in the song.

I always thought it was clowns, until my friend laughed at me and said that was dumb

When I was a kid, I thought she was saying “clowns” instead of “clouds.”
