"Kylie From Connecticut" as written by and Benjamin Scott Folds....
It's just a thought, but where did it come from
What does she do with it if it comes back
A note from his assistant is there by the telephone
She wonders again as she turns out the lights

[Chorus]
Kylie is calling from Connecticut
She says you've got the number
It says Kylie is calling from Connecticut
It's back on her mind as she closes her eyes

She believes there are things you shouldn't know about
When you've been married for thirty-five years
And her heart belongs to a man that she hadn't seen
Since a magical night when the children were small

[Chorus]

Kylie is calling from Connecticut
It's probably nothing, yeah nothing at all
Kylie is calling from Connecticut
It's back on her mind as she's reading old letters
That she left in the closet with the pictures she cherished
She never told a soul for the last thirty years
Now she closes her eyes

    My InterpretationThe "meaning" as Ben explains it reminds me of the short story "The Jilting of Granny Weatherall" by Katherine Anne Porter. The woman who's only thinking about the pain in her past even to her last moment. Granny Weatherall is a lot more angry and embittered than this protagonist, but I still feel there's a connection between the two characters. I don't know if Ben meant it, but I see it.
