All this talk of getting old

This time I'm comin' down

This song is so haunting. It's about loss and death. I think I cried the first time I heard it. I was on a treadmill at the time. No one was around me.

Obviously it is a cover of the verve's song. Ben Harper is a great singer,and I think he did justice to this beautiful melody.

This song isn't exactly about infidelity. My interpretati o n has always been that his wife or girlfriend is dying. From the references to drugs I'm thinking the affliction is something quite painful. Like cancer. It is really sad. It almost hints at euthanasia and suicide. This version is pretty good but the I've been enjoying the original version for over ten years, and believe it or not is much more haunting. Anyone who likes this song should listen to The Verve.

WOW this is not the song that need to hear right now!!! I just found out that my girlfriend of three years who i lived with for two of that has been cheating on me and moved out. I have not "used drugs" in years now but Damn i did not need to hear this right now!! Amazing song but it never really had this effect on me before.
