"Geography" as written by and Jeff/sughrue Heiskell....
Gazing out the window of some big girder bird
Down on mother nature's face, torn-up twisted absurd
I wondered what the chances were that you
Were down there looking up at me

Ah, we're as silly as geography
Silly as geography
You and me
We just can't get it right
You're a function of my latitude
Let's end our little warring feud
How I wish you would come home
Or I'll come there to you


People will tell you what to do, where your head should be
They don't tell me nothing I ain't already heard before or better said
We all want focus, we crave company but
We're cross-eyed and punchdrunk from too much scenery
From our battles with geography


We're a lot like real estate
But the state you're in is never real
It's one helluva rare raw deal
How I wish you would return
We're silly as geography

    General CommentI like this song!

    He's lookin at the ground below from an airplane window and wondering if theirs a possibility that the person he cares about may be looking up at him as well. Sounds like something I would definitely do.

    He comments about them being as silly as geography and that they can't get it right- seems like they are never in the same place at the same time (could mean physically or metaphorically)
    Also points out that they had some sort of disagreement.

    Anyway, my favorite part is:

    We're a lot like real estate
    But the state you're in is never real
    It's one helluva rare raw deal
