    General CommentI adore this song like no other.
    it's basically after she's lost someone - it doesn't even have to be a lover. it could be a friend or relative or someone close. she's been lethargic and in that state of disbelief and shock where you don't fully understand it, and when she states, "Oh my God" it's her realization that that loved one really is gone for good ("Oh you're gone").

    My InterpretationThe narrator is numb from grief and drinking herself to death. Neglecting the daily maintenance of herself and her home. Comes to and sees the state of things and is horrified. Reminds me of "Hoarders" - often those people have had undergone a terrible loss and just stopped caring about the tasks of daily living, until the chaos becomes overwhelming.

    General CommentMy heart breaks every time I listen to this. So good. I wish she still did acoustic stuff sometimes...and didn't completely eschew the instrument now (she says she doesn't own a single acoustic out of the 20+/- guitars that she owns.... (?!?)).

    General CommentTo me, this song isn't about experiencing the death of a loved one, but of simply experiencing depression. She says that the dishes don't care if she wakes late, soaks in the bathtub for an unnecessary amount of time or that she leaves the bed unmade. She's simply saying that she feels lonely and unneeded.
    She says that, "when the drink goes in, the devil comes out. Day's go by, still the past don't seem so far." She is haunted by her past which the alcohol is causing her to think about.
    She eventually calls out to God in her loneliness (Oh, my God!) but feeling abandoned and hearing no reply, simply replies to herself, "Oh, you're gone..."
