Another song on my favorites list? This one. Originally a b-side to “Love Song,” it never really got the attention it deserved. In 2004, the band finally released an album called Join the Dots: Rarities and B-Sides which included this track.
The music is so beautiful and Robert’s voice makes it all the more perfect. In my interpretation, I think this song is about a guy in love with a girl he’s seen at various places around town. It might be suggested that the girl is somewhat of a loner from the line, “…invisible against the words that hold you down in solitude and never let you go”
The guy never really knows when she’ll be in town again but he still waits for her. However, he seems to frequently get there too late and just misses another opportunity to see her again and finally talk to her.
