Thoughts & Meanings
another great song! this one talks on a very personal level about the feelings that a kid has when a divorce goes through. The point of view is a poignant one. There are two people that you love fighting, simply not getting along ever and you never know what to expect to happen. Also, the faith in love fades. It's a shitty position to be in, but Pink does a good job describing it.
I always loved this song! I think it represents very well what it's like when a person is exactly like an adiction. It's someone that can treat you in whatever way and you just continue responding to that person like you "love" them but that's not really love. It's not healthy or good, it's just... that, addictive.
Johnny Cash's most emotional song, I think. He wrote it for June Carter, who died before the record was released. He loved her so much. He was once asked what his description of paradise would be and he answered that it was that morning having coffee with her. That's all it took. The wonderful thing about this song is that it's not some platonic love description, but it's him saying he's got a lot of baggage and a lot of mistakes that he can't take back, but he would, all of it, if it just would bring her back.
Some shitty past was the one that she had, maybe one related to alcohol or abuse or something and now all of that is over because she woke up and she realized she could "run it off" or in other words, she could be happy again if she got to leave behind all of that and with that, her dog days.
I always thought of this song as pretty accurate for Never Let Me Go the movie, actually. The whole conflict that the three characters face, knowing that their lives are not long and they are designed especifically for one mean. The love that changes between them and the request I think the three of them have for one another is to never let go of each other.
