A worn old suitcase so what if it's broken,
hopeless a little odd in a splash of autumn on drugs,
holding all weight for me the weight of me
and i need it like a friend needs me for a friend
I can feel the time is right to find the legs to deal with this alone
so I'll turn around to all and wave the California Wave
sometime let's forget all about forced hands,
big heads and little things no one showed a trust 'cause no one had faith in me
and I see it like the sun sees me through the day
a lo-fi vanilla secret spoken by a friend who'll miss me if I'm leaving...
Who'll want to find me

    General CommentI'm thinking this is about leaving behind what's been holding you back. I'm not sure where I came across this song. It doesn't seem too many people know it. I rediscovered it on an old mix I'd made a few years ago during one of THOSE times in my life.

    He carries the suitcase, which represents his life (the weight of him). It's showing his scars (worn, broken).

    I think the California Wave is that fake formality that you do to be polite.

    He wasn't supported or believed in, and it was obvious (lo-fi vanilla).

    No one will even notice (who'll want to find me)

    I agree with most of your interpretation, except, it seems more like contemplating suicide,
    and the sun seeing through the day is the hope of having happiness.
    And when he tells his friend about his suicidal tendencies, his friend says, Who'll really care?
