"Sky High Honey" as written by Michael Anthony Viola and Matt Nathanson....
I bet you're laughing at some joke he told you
With his arm around your sunburn shoulders
I spent the morning with my face against the window seat
Looking down at all the things that got the best of me

No more late night drives to Boston
No more Cure songs to get lost in
No more taxis, subway tokens
Arms wide open, I'm sky high honey - gone

I take the streetcars around San Francisco
Get winks from the pretty boys down in The Castro
Through the turnstiles roll the chappy girls and the shabby dolls
I can't resist myself, I get their names, I never call

No more late night drives to Boston
No more Cure songs to get lost in
No more taxis, subway tokens
Arms wide open, I'm sky high honey - gone
I'm sky high honey

You wait too long, you never leave
And it feels like dying but still your heart beats

No more late night drives to Boston
No more Cure songs to get lost in
No more taxis, subway tokens
Arms wide open, I'm sky high honey - gone
I'm sky high honey - gone

    General CommentI bet you're laughing at some joke he told you

    Looking down at all the things that got the best of me

    He's clearly a bit jealous of his ex's new person. He's mulling over the regrets he has and what he could have done differently.

    No more late night drives to Boston
    No more Cure songs to get lost in
    No more taxis, subway tokens
    Arms wide open, I'm sky high honey - gone

    They had some great times but it's over now.

    I take the streetcars around San Francisco
    Get winks from the pretty boys down in The Castro
    Through the turnstiles roll the chappy girls and the shabby dolls
    I can't resist myself, I get their names, I never call

    He wants to feel loved or wanted again so he's trolling for attention but he's probably still not over his ex so he doesn't even bother with the numbers.

    You wait too long, you never leave
    And it feels like dying but still your heart beats

    Not sure if he's talking about her waiting and not leaving or himself, but clearly he's struggling with the loss and it's painful.
