Thoughts on Songs with Bear's Den
If I'm not mistaken, this song is about the songwriter's father. It isn't the easiest case to manage to contain within some lines all those emotions, experiences and legacy that the symbol of father might be for someone, but hey, that's capable musicians for you!
This song is a memorial of regret for a lost love, throughout it the experiences with the loved one are being recited, in a way that the psychological portrait of the lost lover is being painted. A Folk tune and those lyrics, are a guarantee to blow a particle of melancholy into your night.
