Well I been pushed to the edge,
By my head ache blues.
And I got pulled by the pull of the tide.

I got stripped of my soul,
Standing in my shoes,
Come back, come back
My little peace of mind

Come back, come back
My little peace of mind

Since the day you been gone,
I cannot keep from crying.
Come back, come back
My little peace of mind.

I sent signals and signs,
from a mountainside
Now I'm gonna try this old microphone light

Now i'm callin' out your name on this radio campaign.
Come back, come back
My little peace of mind.

Come back, come back
My little peace of mind
Since the day you've been gone
I cannot keep from crying.

Come back, come back
My little peace of mind.

    General CommentSimple but great. Songs like this one make me wonder why no one I know has heard of M. Ward. I just don't really understand why he's so unknown and James Blunt is topping the charts.

    My InterpretationI wonder if this song is an explanation of why so much of M. Ward's music is based on older types of songs.

    The first stanzas are about a loss of innocence: "Well I been pushed to the edge", "I got stripped of my soul".

    I'm guessing the type of music that he plays is similar to the type that he listened to as a child (ie, his parent's music). So, now he's trying to bring those feelings back by singing that type of music into a microphone and over the radio. He hopes to bring that "peace of mind" back.

    Of course, "my little peace of mind" fits perfectly well for a girl that he lost too. But lots of older songs use the construct of a song about a relationship to talk about other subjects.

    General CommentI like it better that way, rhymeswithorange, and I think M. Ward likes it too. I like that he's my little secret.

    General CommentI agree, this song is amazing. I guess it never got on the radio, or one could ask if indeed his radio campaign was successful (of course, he doesn't actually call out her (or his, to be fair) name, so it's not clear the campaign is genuine; or, maybe the campaign itself is a different song of his).

    Anyway I think the lyric is "Now I'm gonna try this old microphone line" (rather than "... light"). But I could be wrong.

    General CommentI believe the campaign is to a piece of himself lost or buried long ago. Fulfillment and peace is only possible when that piece is recognized and embraced. That is what I sing when I sing the song...Listening to more of his music, I suspect the campaign successful.
