"Walken" as written by and Glenn Kotche Mikael Jorgensen....
I'm walkin' all by myself
Well, I was talkin' to myself
About you; what am I gonna do?

I was singin' this song about you
I was thinkin' about singin' this song for you

The more I think about it
The more I know it's true
The more I think about it
The more I'm sure it's you

Honey, I think you're just right, you're just right

I was walkin', like I said, by myself
I was talkin' to myself about you, like I always do

The more I think about it
The more I know it's true
The more I think about it
The more I'm sure it's you

Honey, I think you're just right, you're just right

The more I think about it
The more I know it's true
The more I think about it
The more I'm sure it's you

Honey, I think you're just right, you're just right

    General CommentI love this song, especially the way he performs it solo. A lot of the SBS songs are just fun-loving and free-spiritted, and this one especially. This album, culminating is the closing track, is definately about the ups and downs of relationships, both romantic and otherwise, including the narrators relationship with himself. Walken, however, is pretty obvious. He's in love, and he can't help it--he's walken around and can't help but sing about his girl. He runs home just to see her. This song might be the first time the narrator realized he's in love--'the more I think about it the more I know it's true'--or possibly when he decides to ask for her hand in marriage. Hell, it could just be Tweedy saying 'man I love my wife'. Either way, a great song and great album by a great band.

    General Commentwhat the song about is pretty easy to interpret. however, the title throws me off a little bit. "walken" is not the correct way to spell "walking" or "walkin" ...so is it a reference to Christopher Walken?? [i find this unlikely] or is it mispelled by accident or on purpose? why?

    General CommentI have to say, I always assumed the singer here was maybe questioning his relationship, rather than just feeling hunky-dory about it, with lines like "I was talking to myself about you".

    That said, he does end by saying she's just right, but I don't think it's as straightforward as you make out. But what an incredible song, when I first heard it, I just wanted to play it to everyone I knew, like Listen to THIS!!! It starts sounding like a lovely country song, but then that guitar comes in during the verse and just takes it somewhere else, and you don't know WHAT is going to happen next. I love all the musical interludes, and when it stays on the one G note for ages and then the beat comes back in. Genius!

    General Commentomg, this song is just right ... just riiight. haha. okay, my interpretation of the song: for me it is about taking a break, being alone with your heart and mind thinking about what you really feel. or feeling what you really feel. no one's able to interrupt you while thinking, feeling ... whatever. i guess it could be that this girl he's fallen in love with, is someone he never wanted to end up with. well, it might be. he probably couldn't see the truth right from the beginning. somthing had happened, so he needed some time off. thinking, realizing that it's true. she's just right. and so on ... it means a lot to me and. memories from the past ... yeh.

    General CommentI think the title is in fact a reference to Christopher Walken, just done for the sake of a pun.
