Another day I call and never speak
And you would say nothing's changed at all
And I can't feel much hope for anything
If I won't be there to catch you if you fall

[Chorus]
Again
It seems we meet
In the spaces
In between
We always say
It won't be long
But something's always wrong

Another game of putting things aside
As if we'll come back to them sometime
A brace of hope
A pride of innocence
And you would say something has gone wrong

[Chorus: x2]

    General CommentI have my own interpretation, which came to me yesterday when I heard this song for the first time in a long time and really listened to the lyrics. I have been friends with someone for over 20 years and it's been up and down. She's never available, always busy, her life is full of problems and drama. When she does call me it's to apologize for not calling, not to chat or make plans. Recently I felt like I've had enough and when thinking about it I realized that I think she's unconciously filling her life with people who need help because that makes her feel needed. I'm not part of her daily life because I'm independent and therefore I don't make her feel useful. Then I heard this song and it seemed to be about our friendship. "Another day I call and never speak" - that's me calling and always getting voice mail and not leaving a message. "And you would say nothing's changed at all" - her calling to say we're still friends, wish we could get together yada yada yada "And I can't feel much hope for anything If I won't be there to catch you when you fall" - I'm not part of her daily life so I'm not there to help her with the latest crisis. "Again It seems we meet In the spaces In between We always say It won't take long But something's always wrong" - we seldom talk or see each other, only in between the problems and crisis and time she spends helping all her needy friends. We always say we'll get together soon, but something's always wrong and she never has time for me. I'm glad I'm learning to let go and expect nothing from her. I really like her and I'm sorry her life is a mess but I realize I'll only get hurt. I won't turn her away if she needs me but I won't expect to hear from her either. And from now on, this song will always remind me of the way things are.
