Retrograde Lyrics

You're on your own, in a world you've grown
Few more years to go,
Don't let the hurdle fall
So be the girl you loved,
Be the girl you loved

I'll wait, so show me why you're strong
Ignore everybody else,
We're alone now
I'll wait, so show me why you're strong
Ignore everybody else,
We're alone now

Suddenly I'm hip
Is this darkness of the dawn
And your friends are gone
When you friends won't come
So show me where you fit
So show me where you fit I'll wait, so show me why you're strong
Ignore everybody else,
We're alone now
We're alone now
We're alone now
I'll wait

Suddenly I'm hip
Is this darkness of the dawn
And your friends are gone
When you friends won't come
So show me where you fit
So show me where you fit

Thoughts & Meanings

Every site that I have visited believes this to be a love song. I honestly think that I am the only living human that views it differently. I believe this song is about an old woman in a retirement home with Alzheimers, written from the view point of her own mind. Just the title Retrograde alone started me on that impression. It is the loss of memory access to events. If you listen to it with that in mind then maybe I won't be alone. Or maybe I'm just crazy.
