Working in it :*-(
This song tips ur heart out
OK Snow Clover. I didn't say abortion or suicide are trite issues, they obviously aren't. I said that songs that use them as themes come across as trite. This song included. The song may not have been written to please me, but he released it and has made gobs of money off of it. I generally like Ben Folds, but I can't stand this song.
<3
i always think its sad he had to sell his christmas presents
love it reminds me of junior high
Damn, I love this song!!!! I love when he sings this lyric: And she broke down/and I broke down/cause I was tired of lying. Gets me everytime!
I wish we had more songs from the woman's perspective on this subject.
Abortion a trite subject? Maybe the song wasn't written to please you. Maybe the artist lived through this and was expressing the story. Get over yourself. Abortion, suicide and the like are written about again and again because the experience is so profound for better or worse-
I love when people say that a certain theme is overused in music. lol. A good song is a good song no matter what the theme is and it's odd that some people can't seem to get over that "theme" and enjoy the song for what it is as an individual's expression.
This song good.. the verve pipe abortion song blows, tho

I find that people who use the word "trite" are pretentious morons.
I find the whole abortion/sui c i d e themes way overused in music. This song is one example. Freshmen by the Verve Pipe is another. It just always comes across as trite.
hills like white elephants
My understandin g is that this song is about his girlfriend having an abortion. And them dealing with the emotional repercusions of it.
Makes me cry...
Love it- just saw him sing this in Deer Valley- the symphony drowned him out though!
soooo sad&beautifu l :/
I do not understand the meaning of this song.
Not an easy subject for anyone, but pretty amazing to put it into a nationally broadcast song.

It's true, just listen to the end of Fred Jones Part 2 at the end when he starts the song Brick. He explains the whole thing there. It happened to him and his girlfriend in high school and he says it's a tough subject for him.

This seemed like a good song.

(BTW, I immediately looked up the meaning of the song after listening to it. The artist confirmed that it was about him and his high school girlfriend when they opted to have an abortion.)
Yeah, that's my understandin g . The metaphor of a brick and drowning strongly suggests a biblical reference to Mark 9:42 or other similar passages. This is a beautiful, sad and sincere song. I never know if I want to listen to it or skip it.
That's sure what it seems like to me (abortion clinic).

I don't know, but it seems to talk about a young couple going to an abortion clinic. What do you all think?
mrmike82
does anybody know the background of this song?
Nice song, but the recording is horrible with digital tinniness
lambd9
This song was used in a segment of MTV's True Life: Baby Mama Drama.

Oh my gosh..this song makes me want to cry. It's absolutely gorgeous.
Wow..I'm with rachel, this song and the ones she listed are like high school anthems for me..
This song has stuck with me from high school. I think it hit a certain feeling of loneliness for me at the time. Hits similar chords for me as "Freshmen" by Verve Pipe, "Wonderwall" by Oasis, and "A Long December" by Counting Crows. Good Stuff.
lol i was just wondering the same thing. i love the song but can't figure out where i heard it before
is this song somewhere in a movie or tv show? i know it from somewhere and i can't figure it out
great song. I love his voice.
