"Where You're Coming From" as written by and Kimberly Ann Schifino Matthew Wesley Johnson....
I hear that shoe strings tend to break
But they tie back together great
I feel I know
I know where you're coming from

Notebooks filled with lines
And the clocks filled with good times
I think I know
I know where you're coming from
Oh I know, I know where you're coming from

I never have enough
And you always have too much
I might just know,
I know where you're coming from

Quarters full the wash
All the other coins are tossed
I said I know
I know where you're coming
Oh I know where you're coming from

I'm on my feet today
And I'm walking to the grave
I drew this map by hand
To show you how to become a man

I'm on my feet today
And I'm walking to the grave
I said I-I know where you're coming from
Where you're coming from

We the broke the walls out
In this old bedroom of your house
To make rooms for dreams
I know where you're coming from

We hear they come and go
But today its here to stay
I said I know
I know where you're coming from
Oh I know, I know where you're coming from

I'm on my feet today
And I'm walking to the grave
I drew this map by hand
Show you how to become a man

I'm on my feet today
And I walking to the grave
I said I-I know where you're coming from
Where you're coming from

    My InterpretationFirst of all, this is a beautiful song! I start out feeling good at the beginning and by the end I'm ready to shed a tear. The song expresses a sentiment that I think is tricky to put into words, but here's my best attempt... I think it is a song about how all people are connected through some common experiences. Because the line says "I'm on my feet today and I'll walk into the grave" I get a mental picture of an older person whose time may be running out, and he wants to share memories with a younger person because he can still remember what it was like to be that age. "I drew this map by hand to show you how to become a man" - it's drawn by hand because growing up was a personal journey shaped by unique experiences. It reminds me of when I realized that life isn't as cookie-cutter as I believed as a child - you might follow a pre-planned route for a little while (ie. going to school for x amount of years) but after a certain point, life's up to you. And that can be so confusing, it's nice to hear someone say "I know where you're coming from" ie. I know how you feel, you're not alone. Anyway! That's the vibe I get from this song.
