"High and Low" as written by and Greg Laswell....
I'm going to see some friends from out of state
The very trip you were supposed to take
A while ago
But it fell through
Like all of you
Like all of you

Thought I'd make the drive
But a free plane ride is in the air
And just like that my fear of it disappeared
Like all of you
Like all of you

And I look high and low for yesterday
High and low for you and I
High and low

Once I can see straight I might move
Somewhere cold
Seattle or the Bay area; to see your ghost
What's left of you
What's left of you

And I look high and low for yesterday
High and low for you and I
High and low

Found a letter from a man I might have met
Addressed to you
And I'll steal the words he ended with:
I miss you
And I do
Miss you
And I do

High and low for yesterday
High and low for you and I
High and low

    General CommentThanks wolf cub. You bring up a good point. I went through the verses and put what I have down now.

    Verse 1
    "I'm going to see some friends from out of state. The very trip that you were suppose to take a while ago, but it fell through. Like all of you, like all of you."

    She was going to see friends, but somehow didn't get to see them. Now he must see them to tell them of her passing.

    Verse 2
    "Thought I'd make the drive, but a free plane ride is in the air and just like that my fear of it disappeared. Like all of you, like all of you."

    A plane ride is discounted or free in cases of bereavement. His fear of flying disappears like how she disappears from his life.

    Chorus
    "And I look high and low for yesterday. High and low for you and I high and low."

    He is remembering the memories and old times he had with her.

    Verse 4
    "Once I can see straight I might move somewhere cold. Seattle or the Bay area to see your ghost. What's left of you. What's left of you."

    He can't see straight because tears blur the vision. What's left of her is in him, and he is moving somewhere cold so he can see his breath in the air. Breathing is needed for life, and she is his breath. So being able to see the condensing of his breath, is in someway seeing her. This might seem a little far fetched, but I think it fits well.

    Verse 5
    "Found a letter from a man I might have met addressed to you, and I'll steal the words he ended with, 'I miss you, and I do. I miss you, and I do.'"

    When he is going through her belongings, he finds a letter she kept that he wrote for her. It was a love letter talking about how he wants to be with her, but now the letter to him means he misses her and needs her more than before. He "might have met" because he is in a different state in his life than he was when he originally wrote the letter.

    Some parts of this might seem a bit reaching, but with this the song seems to be more meaningful to me. It's a great song.
