    General Commenti'm disappointed that there aren't any comments yet. all of her songs are so pretty but this one's my favorite for the meaning, especially in the simple sad statement of the chorus.

    General Commenti agree. kate earl is such an underrated artist. she's better than a lot of who's out there, which is such a shame.

    General CommentI think it's a boy that she used to care about, except he is "hard and stubborn and vain"
    and that she doesn't look up to him anymore.

    Song Meaningit sounds as if he was a soldier (that's why he is a hero for everybody) and died leaving her with all the grief and that's what makes her angry (and what makes him not being her hero anymore)
    or maybe is too easy interpretation, but that's what comes to my mind when i first heard it

    General CommentThe first time I heard this I shuddered, it is the way I felt when my brother took his life. That is what I thought it was about. That is why I am looking it up.

    General CommentI've read the comments about Kate's father, but I personally get the feeling this song is about a man who commit suicide. The whole chorus (and the bridge) sounds very accusatory, and I'd like to think that she wouldn't talk (sing) about her father this way if he lost his battle with cancer. That's not something people have much control over.
