    General CommentI think this song is about aging, and feeling like you got caught up in the wrong kind of life.

    General CommentA climax-song on Mirrorball.

    A relationship between a young man and a women. She gets pregnant and he deals with it the best way he can, but nevertheless he is kind of furious and on the other side he is haunted by all these thoughts coming through his mind, thinking about the future. Maybe her preganncy came a bit as a surprise for both of them. I think the rough rhythm underlines these expressions, which are hard to put into words.

    I like this verse most...maybe because it just doesn't need to be connected to the idea written above, but fits strangly for the idea of a split.
    ----
    I can't hear you, but I feel the things you say
    I can't see you, but I know what's in my way
    Now I'm floatin' 'cause I'm not tied to the ground
    Words I've spoken seem to leave a hollow sound.
    -----


    (And yeah, in the 8th verse it's "Pulled the curtain..." instead of "Puzzled the curtain")
