I used to love this song.
Haunting melody. And it was around the time I met him too. Cool dude, a bit of a introverted poetic genius type. We talked about love. Life. And for some reason, I don't know why I can't seem to find it, but I remember him talking about his pole-dancing wife. But it was all so long ago.. so details are a bit fuzzy.
I'm sure he does not remember me at all. But when we talked about this song, he said something that he repeated in interviews...
That this song was about him breaking up with a woman he really loved, but who he never had business getting involved with in the first place.
Whenever I listened to it after, I could hear it. The pain in his vocals, that while raw and unpolished, rang true and truthful to his pain.
This is goodbye...
