Today I'm doing fine,
heading north on the I-5.
Just wrote to tell what I'm seeing:
beyond the frontage road,
the earth is combed in rows...
I remember that trip to City:

the day was cold but bright,
you slept through most the drive;
I watched the fog from your breathing.
You (in your navy coat) staring at the boats,
"I love how they're always leaving."
The problem with looking back
is we romanticize the past--
the Present isn't so easy.

Simple minds mean simple vice.
Love my friends, hate my life.
Are broken hearts sore to the touch?
You'll never believe...

    General CommentI absolutely love my friends but I hate my life and there is nothing I can do to immediately change things but I am working on it. But . . . until then I will listen to this song and feel the connection pulse through my veins.

    General CommentI think this song is about him being in love with a friend and she loves him too but he has to go away (probably on tour or something) and he misses her. I think what he means by "are broken hearts sore to the touch," is that he broke her heart and now she'll never believe that he ever loved her at all.
