So I could start in on a bit of a diatribe about how Pandora comes up with the weirdest things sometimes, though I suppose it shouldn’t surprise me too much that this song keeps popping up on my Melanie (Safka) station because they classify both artists as folk.
Listening to it again, it reinforced just how much it was Reece and Wichita in Matched Set. The old friendship. Torn apart.
This first verse seemed very them, mostly her but a bit him, too:
I watch you grow away from me in photographs
And memories like spies
And salt betrays my eyes again
I started losing sleep and gaining weight
And wishing I was was ten again
So I could be your friend again
There’s a particular flashback that makes this section of the lyrics stand out:
Then just when we believe we could be great
Reality it permeates
And conquers from within again
Then I went looking for a video and found the official one strangely close to the ideas I’d had, lost friendship and all.
Kabobbles Sing Along is just what I think when I hear songs. I sometimes see images when I hear lyrics, pictures or movies in my head. Sometimes I relate it to stories. My interpretation of the songs and lyrics are probably nothing like their original intent.
