"Blow Away" as written by Brent Richard Mydland and John Barlow....
A man and a woman come together
As strangers.
When they part they're usually
Strangers still.
It's like a practical joke
Played on us by our maker.
Empty bottles,
That can't be filled.

You fancy me to be the master
Of your feelings.
You barely bruise me
With your looks to kill.
Though i admit we were sometimes brutal
In our dealings,
I never held you against your will.

[Chorus]
Baby, who's to say it could of been different
Now that it's done.
Baby, who's to say,
Baby, who's to say that it should of been
Anyway.
Baby, who's to say,
Baby, who's to say
That it even matters in the long run.
Who's to say.
Give it just a minute.
And it'll blow away.
It's blow away.

Your case against me is so
Very clearly stated
I please no contest,
I turn and shrug.
I've come to figure all importance
Overestimated.
You must mean water when you beg for blood.

[Chorus]

Like a feather in the whirlwind,
Just as surely as the world spins.
It'll blow away,
Oh, It'll blow.
Give it just a minute,
Give it just a minute now, it'll blow away...

    General CommentThere's not much to interpret here. Brent's lyrics are typically pretty straight-forward and usually involve heart break, misery and a bit of anger/distrust for the woman in question. That said, this song is beautiful and powerful.

    General CommentBrent killed himself after his divorce was final and he lost custody of his child. I agree, not much to interpret here... just a broken, bitter blues... and the knowledge (or belief) that a little faith and patience (and music) would change things for the better.
