"Go home. I'd be surprised
If you could find it with those eyes."
"Ah, go ahead and get hit by a bus."
It was the look in your eyes
When you said something like
"It's just us." ("It's just us.")

Tears streaming down my cheeks, (Tears streaming down my cheeks)
"Just take me down to Lansdowne Street. ("Just take me down to Lansdowne Street)
Fenway Park? C'mon, it's not like they keep it hid!" (Fenway Park? C'mon, it's not like they keep it hid!")
It was the look in your eyes you said, (It was the look in your eyes you said)
"No one's going to hurt me like you did." ("No one's going to hurt me like you did.")

Rolling Over it a thousand times (Rolling Over it a thousand times)
In the narrow flume of my mind. (In the narrow flume of my mind)
O what I'd give for just one small caress. (O what I'd give for just one small caress)
It was the look in your eyes (It was the look in your eyes)
When you said something like (When you said something like)
"Yer possessed." ("Yer possessed.")
You're possessed. (You're possessed)

    General CommentI think Gord Downie's songs are just so ridiculously hard to interpret. It's like he's making you feel them rather than understand them. Which I love. I love the tone. I think he's just throwing his own personal experiences into crazy metaphors that no one will understand anyways.
    "it's just us" I love that line.
    I also love how Gordie uses parts from his songs in other songs, like in Insomniacs Of The World, Goodnight and this one. And like... all of World Container.
    If I ask you a questionnnn are you gonna lie to meeee?
