"Dear Rosemary" as written by David Eric Grohl, Taylor Hawkins, Christopher A. Shiflett, Nate Mendel and Pat Smear....
You got away, got away, got away from me
Now get away, get away, get away from me

I couldn't grow just living in the shadow
Where do you go when no one's following you?
You ran away, ran away it was right on cue

Shall I go on, and on, and on,
And on, and on, and on again?

Rosemary you're part of me
You know you are, you are, you are
Rosemary you're part of me
You know you are, you are, you are
Rosemary please pardon me

Truth ain't gonna change the way you lie
Youth ain't gonna change the way you die

Dear Rosemary
Dear Rosemary

You've got a way, got a way, got a way with things
You got away, got away, got away with things

False starts, young hearts get shattered
Pick up the pieces coming down around you
You ran away, ran away, it was right on cue

Can I go on, and on, and on,
And on, and on, and on again?

Rosemary you're part of me
You know you are, you are, you are
Rosemary you're part of me
You know you are, you are, you are
Rosemary please pardon me

Truth ain't gonna change the way you lie
Youth ain't gonna change the way you die

This was no ordinary life
(This was no ordinary life)
This was no ordinary life
(This was no ordinary life)

I'm here from now on
But once I'm gone
I'm gone

Truth ain't gonna change the way you lie
Youth ain't gonna change the way you die

Dear Rosemary (dear Rosemary)
You're a part of me (you're part of me)
Dear Rosemary (dear Rosemary)
Please pardon me (please pardon me)
Dear Rosemary

You got away, got away, got away from me
Now get away, get away, get away from me

    General CommentThe only songs i can see that are *definitely* about Kurt are:

    1. Friend of a Friend
    2. Resolve

    Then *maybe* you could make an argument for...My Hero, Let it Die, or I Should Have Known.

    But most of Dave's song are clearly about women (ex-girlfriends, his wives, his daughters, his mother, Courtney, etc...)
