Follow me back like a ride on a train
Make it hard to remember the cold
Take care of your money and stay out of the rain
Your bones could give out when you’re old
I get more of a feeling from words that have truth
A feeling like something is wrong

Let the door slide open, let the sunlight in
Call my name girl, Sorrow

All of the times that I heard you sing
I hoped there parts there for me
I’d sing all the notes that stay out of your way
We can let all those melodies free
I think I was meant for an uglier time
My harmony’s all out of tune

Let the verse slide over let the chorus in
Call my name girl, Sorrow

We’ll be out of the dark when the seasons pass
But you have to live now or you won’t
Put your gloves on your hands, wear your winter skin
Cause it’s over before you say August
All your friends will await your return
With the car doors open and the radio on
Call my name girl, Sorrow

Sorrow oooo

    My InterpretationI see this song as being sung from the perspective of Sorrow itself, pining for some sort of happiness. He is clinging to this girl who was going through a bad time (and so spent some time with Sorrow), but is now starting to feel better and come out of the slump she was in. Sorrow is having trouble letting go, because he knows that he will be alone again once the girl is gone. So all he can hope for is that she will remember him, and every once in a while call his name.
